When Freeman goes back down on Thursday, he will be iced from the majors for ten days. They'll do that with Freeman. They wouldn't want to with Arredondo, who they may need soon.
Maybe not the exact reason, but it is a good reason, because he is pitching better. Joel Luckhaupt pointed out the likely reason though.... if Arredondo comes up, he would have to go through waivers again. Of course, Jose has 7 walks in 6 innings for Louisville too.
