David Freese reportedly has not suffered a setback, but it sounds an awful lot like a small setback.
David Freese said he has not had a setback, but his hamstring hasn’t healed as quickly as he hoped and he will most likely be activated after the break.

The fact that his hamstring has not healed as quickly as he had hoped is somewhat discouraging, but is fairly normal for a player at 35 years of age, so there is nothing to worry about — yet.
The idea that Freese should still be activated following the All-Star Break is great, all in all, as the Dodgers miss his right-handed bat in the starting lineup.
Freese has been stellar this season for Los Angeles after signing a one-year deal worth around $5 million in the off-season. He has a 202 wRC+ this season against right-handed pitching this year and a 164 wRC+ on the whole.
