Freese was removed from St. Louis’ lineup Monday night after
spraining his ankle. He sustained the
injury when he stepped awkwardly on an indoor batting cage in Houston.
Freese told Langosch that he was “more sore” Tuesday, but he
was at least “walking around alright.”
The Cardinals are hoping to get their third baseman back after their
series with the Astros. The club has
Thursday off before beginning a three-game set with the Washington Nationals
Freese has been solid for the Cardinals this season, hitting
.296/.373/.471 with 24 doubles and 20 home runs over 490 at-bats. While he’s out due to his ankle injury, the
Cardinals will use Matt Carpenter at third.
