Freeman enters his second season on Long Island and seventh in pro ball. The left-hander, who can serve as both a position player and a pitcher, also came to the Ducks in June of 2019. In 28 games as a hitter, he accrued a .270 batting average with two home runs, 14 RBIs, 12 runs, three doubles and a .340 on-base percentage. Among his highlights at the plate were a game-winning homer in the ninth inning on August 9 at Lancaster and a streak of five consecutive games with at least one hit and one RBI in September. On the mound, the 28-year-old appeared in 15 games, striking out 13 batters over 17 innings of work.
Previously, the Johnson City, Tenn. native spent three seasons (2016-18) with the River City Rascals of the Frontier League. At the plate during that time, he posted a .264 batting average with 33 home runs, 138 RBIs, 137 runs, 66 doubles and 13 stolen bases over 266 games. On the bump, the East Tennessee State University alum pitched in 12 games, compiling a 2.79 ERA and 10 strikeouts to just one walk over 9.2 innings. He began his career in the Los Angeles Dodgers organization, hitting .305 in 2014 with the club’s rookie-level Arizona League affiliate and pitching in 24 games during the 2015 season with rookie-level Ogden in the Pioneer League. Freeman was originally selected by the Dodgers in the 18th round of the 2014 amateur draft.
