David Freitas started this year in the Majors, playing one game with the Seattle Mariners.
A trade brought the 30-year-old catcher to the Milwaukee Brewers organization and San Antonio Missions.
Freitas has been an offensive force in his 55 games in Triple-A. He leads the Missions in batting (.369), is second in OPS (.957), third in RBIs (43) and fourth in slugging (.523). He has seen time in San Antonio as both a catcher and first basemen, in keeping with the Brewers organization’s philosophy of giving players experience at multiple positions.
Freitas is scheduled to play for the Pacific Coast League team in Wednesday’s Triple-A All-Star Game in El Paso.
