2020 Fantasy Outlook
It is as clear as ever that Freeman has one of the best hit tools in the minors. He logged LD% north of 24.0 and Oppo% of at least 33.3 at Low-A and High-A while striking out at a 9.7% clip. Freeman does not have a physical build (6-foot, 170 pounds), but he is a great athlete with strong wrists and good bat speed, which allows him to impact the baseball. He only has seven home runs in 231 games, but has banged 70 doubles in that span, and like with most young hitting prospects with good hit tools, power will be the last tool to show up. His above-average speed and good instincts led to 19 steals on just 24 attempts, which adds another layer to his long-term fantasy value. His arm is a better fit at second base, where he could be a plus defender. It's all about his bat though, and if he continues to hit as expected, he could be the Indians' leadoff hitter at some point in 2021. Read Past Outlooks
