David Freese (back) is expected to be sidelined for several more days.
Freese is nursing a back injury that he originally suffered on March 4 when he fell into a railing while chasing a foul pop-up. He could be limited to just playing catch for much of this week, but the third baseman insists that the injury isn't a big deal. "It's just banged up a little bit," Freese said. "We're just going to hang out for a couple days and let it get back to normal. There is nothing serious."
