Dodgers News: David Freese Will Not Return Before Break

Freese’s hammy is not healing as fast as originally thought.

David Freese reportedly has not suffered a setback, but it sounds an awful lot like a small setback.

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.
