David Freese reported to spring training Saturday with a new physique and a quiet confidence.

The former is the result of a strength-and-conditioning program that helped the Angels third baseman “redistribute” the 220 pounds on his 6-foot-2 frame, adding muscle and losing fat.

“I can’t explain it,” Freese told Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times. “I just know that now, things are different. I’m excited to be back here and to get to work. I’m glad I’m an Angel. They’re going to be glad I’m still an Angel. I’m confident of that.”

Freese, 31, batted just .260/.321/.383 in his first season with Anaheim. He is entering a contract year.
