The 30-year-old began the season on the Seattle Mariners Opening Day roster before being optioned to Triple-A Tacoma on March 29.

He started for the Pacific Coast League at the Triple-A All-Star Game and went 2-for-2 with a pair of doubles, two runs, and an RBI. In 88 games this season, six with Tacoma and 82 with San Antonio, Freitas is batting .386 with 55 runs, 23 doubles, 12 home runs, and 79 RBI.
Freitas has three separate hitting streaks of at least 10 games and is currently on a 13-game hitting streak. He is also on a 28-game on-base streak. He has accumulated team-best 37 multi-hit games including a team-high 11 three-hit performances.
