The announcement comes from the Angels’ official Twitter account …
This afternoon, the #Angels activated INF David Freese from the D.L. and optioned INF Luis Jimenez to Triple-A.

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.
