Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 3B David Freese is hitting .344 since July 31, and he moved up to the sixth spot in the order Wednesday, Aug. 20. SS Erick Aybar was dropped in the order.
Fantasy Tip: Freese has just two homers and nine RBIs in 103 at-bats since the All-Star break. While his average has climbed, he still isn't producing enough to warrant much consideration in mixed leagues. Aybar has hit just .209 since the break and doesn't have much mixed-league value either.
