I'm in no way saying he should be a starter (I don't think he should be either), but it seems he could be out there a little more often than he has been lately. The ONLY reason I would like to see him is that he's a huge distraction on the basepaths and that could certainly benefit the Reds against some of these better pitchers.
Freels game is speed, Freel pulled his groin earlier this year, that destroys his game. He's alot like a hockey player, his legs are his life... without them he's a bit player in the 3rd act.
