Manager Mike Scioscia said Tuesday that he wants to limit Frieri to one-inning outings in 2014, the Orange County Register reports.
Frieri made his spring debut Monday, throwing a scoreless frame against the Diamondbacks.
Frieri, who was in Phoenix for the birth of his child Friday, is slated to make his spring debut Monday against the Diamondbacks, MLB.com reports.
Frieri is currently not with the team, as he and his wife are expecting their second child, MLB.com reports.
Frieri is excited about his changeup and said that he'll throw the pitcher regularly this season if it looks good during spring training, the MLB.com reports. "I feel more confident in throwing it," Frieri said of his changeup. "What I want to see now is the reaction from the hitters. Hitters are the ones who tell you if the pitch is good or bad. And that's what Spring Training is for. This spring, I'm going to work on it a lot to see what the reaction from hitters is. If it's good, get ready for the season -- changeups for everybody."
