(KSDK Sports) -- David Freese will make his way back into the Cardinals starting line up via Memphis. Today the Cardinals announced that the hobbled third baseman is set to begin his injury rehabilitation assignment tomorrow with the club's AAA affiliate.
Freese is battling a lower back injury which caused him to miss a good amount of Spring Training. While the extent of the injury is not known, we have reported earlier, that Freese had been treated with cortisone injections from doctors in Jupiter, Florida.
