In his two years at Louisiana State, Freeman has shown what he is--a contact-oriented hitter with limited power but a short swing and an ability to get on base by whatever means necessary. He's shown the same strengths with a wood bat; he led the Cape Cod League with a .374 batting average in 2016. Freeman steps toward the plate in his swing, which explains the 19 hit-by-pitches he's used this year to boost his on-base percentage. He uses his 70 speed well on the basepaths. There's no power at all in his bat and no projection for future power which leads most scouts to see him as a future utilityman who can play second, third and the outfield and maybe even fill in at shortstop in an emergency. As a senior, he's a money saving signing, but one where the team can feel they are getting a legitimate player in the process.
