The announcement comes from the Angels’ official Twitter account …

Freese only missed 17 days with a small fracture in his right middle finger. He is back in the Angels’ starting lineup on Tuesday night against the Astros, playing third base and batting sixth.

Freese has hit just .202/.266/.286 in 24 games this season for his new team.

He was acquired from the Cardinals over the winter in a four-player trade.

Free agent reliever Blake Treinen has signed a one-year, $10 million contract with the Dodgers, ESPN’s Jeff Passan reports.

Treinen, 31, was non-tendered by the Athletics last week as he entered his third year of arbitration eligibility. Despite finishing as arguably baseball’s best reliever in 2018, Treinen had a disappointing 2019 campaign, posting a 4.91 ERA with 16 saves, 59 strikeouts, and 37 walks over 58 2/3 innings.

Treinen will join the back of the Dodgers’ bullpen along with Joe Kelly, Pedro Báez, and Kenley Jansen. Jansen still figures to be the closer, but Treinen could eventually assume the role if he comes back into form and Jansen doesn’t.
