Freese Hits DL For Cards

The Cardinals will start the season without third baseman David Freese. The team announced yesterday Freese will start the season on the disabled list due to his lingering back injury. The move comes a day after Freese seemed hopeful of being ready for Opening Day. St. Louis is targeting April 8th for Freese's return, which happens to be the Redbirds' home opener against the Reds.
