Devon TeepleAnalyst IJuly 28, 2016

Ryan Freel, who played nearly 600 MLB games, recently signed with the Somerset Patriots of the Independent Atlantic League.

Freel put together a career .268 average with over 500 hits and 140 stolen bases in eight MLB seasons.

Freel’s most productive years came in the mid ’90s with the Cincinnati Reds.

Specifically, ‘04 through ‘06 showcased his  innate ability to "get the job done”; he had a.286 average, 76 RBI, 175 base on balls, with 110 stolen bases.

“It’s not often you have a player with Ryan’s Major League time available. We feel that his significant experience makes our lineup tremendous from top to bottom. We are excited to see him on our roster this season,” said Patrick McVerry, President/General Manager of the Somerset Patriots Baseball Club.
