Angels, David Freese avoid arbitration

8 Comments

Third baseman David Freese and the Angels have avoided arbitration with a one-year, $6.425 million contract.

Freese requested $7.6 million and the Angels countered at $5.25 million, so they’ve settled at the exact midpoint.

Acquired from the Cardinals last offseason, Freese got off to a poor start with the Angels before turning things around and ended up hitting .260 with 10 homers and a .704 OPS in 134 games overall.
