Prospect Hot Sheet: Men Among Boys

Playing time is a scarce resource in Major League Baseball, and a missed opportunity can set back a prospect's timetable significantly. It looked like 3B David Freese, 26, would finally get his chance at the big leagues this season, but Freese had just 19 at-bats for St. Louis before arthroscopic surgery on hs left ankle kept him away from the field for two months. Freese is back in Triple-A Memphis now, where he hit .350/.350/.900 over the last seven days, going 7-for-20 with three home runs and two doubles. He's not the most patient hitter, but he provides good glovework at third base and is hitting .287/.340/.485 on the year in 38 games with the Redbirds.
