David Freese has been cleared to return to game action after being hit on the helmet by a pitch Thursday and is expected to be back in the Cardinals’ lineup tomorrow night, according to Rick Hummel of the St. Louis Post Dispatch.
Freese suffered a mild concussion when he was beaned by a Clay Hensley pitch, but passed the necessary tests to receive the go-ahead from MLB and told Hummel that he’s “ready to go.”
He took batting practice yesterday without any post-concussion symptoms and will get today off with the rest of the team.
