Angels | David Freese searching for new stance
Wed, 16 Apr 2014 09:42:04 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 3B David Freese was dropped to the seventh spot in the batting order Tuesday, April 15, and he responded by hitting two singles. However, he's still hitting .170 (8-for-47) with a .231 on-base percentage and a .234 slugging percentage to start the year. Freese says he's not worried, but he has three singles and 10 strikeouts in 21 at-bats since OF Josh Hamilton (thumb) landed on the disabled list. "We have to get David in a comfort zone, and sometimes changing the neighborhood helps," manager Mike Scioscia said. "When David gets going, he's a big part of the middle of our lineup, but he's obviously searching for some things right now."

Freese, who is typically hot to start the year, insists he's not trying too hard to impress his new team. He's been studying film and working with hitting coaches Dave Hansen and Paul Sorrento to find a more comfortable stance that will help him use his hands to drive the ball the other way.
