Third Baseman for the St. Louis Cardinals
David Freese Biography
David Freese was born April 28, 1983 in Corpus Christi, Texas and is a third baseman for the St. Louis Cardinals of Major League Baseball.
Freese was drafted by the San Diego Padres in ninth round (273rd overall) of the 2006 Major League Baseball Draft. Freese played for the Eugene Emeralds, Fort Wayne Wizards and Lake Elsinore Storm in the San Diego farm system.
Prior to the 2008 season, Freese was traded by the Padres to the Cardinals for Jim Edmonds. He spent the 2008 season in Triple-A with the Memphis Redbirds.
With Cardinals starting third baseman Troy Glaus expected to begin the 2009 season on the disabled list, Freese emerged as a potential starter. Freese made his Major League debut on April 6, 2009, coming off the bench and hitting a go-ahead sacrifice fly in the Cardinals' home opener against the Pittsburgh Pirates. Freese was expected to be the team's starting third baseman, but was quickly passed over by fellow prospect Brian Barden. He was optioned to Triple-A Memphis on April 20, 2009 to make room for newly acquired reliever Blaine Boyer. He later had surgery to repair the injuries that hampered him during spring training, leaving him injured for the majority of the 2009 season. He was activated and assigned to Double-A Springfield in late July with plans to later assign him to Memphis. He was recalled in the September call-up on September 23, 2009.
Freese began the 2010 season as the Cardinals' starting third baseman. However, injuries caused him to have 2 ankle surgeries and miss most of the season due to injuries.
Freese was projected to start the 2011 season and did so. He started off the year batting over .320, but was hit on the hand by a pitch and missed 51 games. Freese returned to the starting lineup after his DL stint and finished the season with a .297 batting average, 10 home runs, and 55 RBI. In his first playoff series, he drove in 4 runs against the Phillies in Game 4 to force a fifth game.
In the 2011 National League Championship Series (NLCS), Freese had a .545 batting average, hit 3 home runs, drove in 9 runs, and scored 7 runs. He was honored in 2011 as the NLCS Most Valuable Player.
