3B David Freese, St. Louis Cardinals: The Cardinals promoted second base prospect Kolten Wong last week, and he'll likely start in place of Freese (with Matt Carpenter moving to third), at least against righties. It could still be a straight platoon, with Freese getting the nod against lefties, but even if that's how manager Mike Matheny plays it, Freese doesn't have much value in mixed leagues. He's hitting just .265/.343/.380 with six homers in 399 plate appearances this year, and has been one of the bigger busts of the season.
