Freeland (back) is starting Sunday's Cactus League game against the Indians, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports.
The left-hander exited his Feb. 27 outing with back spasms, but he'll return to the mound after missing one scheduled turn through the rotation. Barring a setback, Freeland's brief absence shouldn't impact his preparations for Opening Day.
Freeland (back) indicated that his condition has improved in recent days and that he expects to pitch in Sunday's Cactus League game against the Indians, Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post reports.
Freeland is slated to complete a bullpen session Thursday, so if his back responds well to the activity, he should be cleared to return to action over the weekend. The southpaw was only shut down for about a week with the injury, so he still looks like he'll be ready to go for Opening Day.
Freeland (back) feels "pretty good" Friday, but he's still expected to miss his next Cactus League start, Kyle Newman of The Denver Post reports.
The left-hander exited Thursday's game versus the A's with back spasms, but it appears he's not dealing with a severe injury. Freeland's next start was likely to come early next week, but it appears he'll take a bit of extra time to get fully healthy before returning to game action.
Freeland was removed from Thursday's Cactus League game against the Athletics due to back spasms, Kyle Newman of The Denver Post reports.
Freeland allowed one run -- a solo home run to Chad Pinder -- across two innings before exiting. Bryan Shaw took over at pitcher for Freeland, who should be considered day-to-day.
Freeland signed a one-year, $2.875 contract with Colorado on Friday, avoiding arbitration, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports.
The oddity of MLB's salary system means that Freeland will see a raise of over 400 percent despite his ERA more than doubling. After posting a 2.85 mark in that category in 2018, he recorded an awful 6.73 ERA last season, while his already mediocre 20.5 percent strikeout rate slipped to 16.7 percent.
Freeland did not factor into the decision during Thursday's loss to the Giants, allowing one run on three hits and a walk across three innings.
Making his final start of the season, Freeland limited damage but failed to go deep into the game, and he did not record a strikeout. The southpaw had recently returned from a month-long stint on the injured list (groin) and was still limited in his pitch count. Freeland finishes the year with a 3-11 record, 6.73 ERA and 1.62 WHIP.
Freeland is in line to make his final start of the season Thursday against the Giants in San Francisco.
After being idle for a month with a groin issue, Freeland returned from the 10-day injured list to toss two scoreless innings in his start Saturday versus the Dodgers. Since Freeland didn't have time to re-condition his arm for a starter's workload during his rehab process, he'll be limited to around 45-to-60 pitches in his final outing of 2019. Expect Chi Chi Gonzalez to enter the contest behind Freeland and serve as a bulk reliever Thursday.
Freeland (groin) tossed two scoreless innings, allowing three hits and striking out one in a no-decision against the Dodgers on Saturday.
Freeland made the start after missing nearly a month with a groin injury. He gave way to Chi Chi Gonzalez, who would go on to pick up the win. Freeland has a 6.84 ERA and 1.59 WHIP in 101.1 innings this season, taking a large step back from the 2.85 ERA he posted last year. The southpaw may have time to make one more start, in the final series of the year at home against the Brewers.
Freeland (groin) was activated from injured list and will start Saturday against the Dodgers, Kyle Newman of The Denver Post reports.
Freeland was placed on the injured list Aug. 22, but he'll have the chance to take the ball at least one more time prior to the close of the season. It's unclear how deep into the game the team will let him pitch, though he had been fully stretched out prior to the injury.
Freeland (groin) threw a simulated game Tuesday and is nearing a return from the 10-day injured list, Nick Groke of The Athletic reports.
Freeland was placed on the injured list Aug. 22 due to a left groin strain, but he's expected to return before the season comes to an end. The Rockies are hopeful to get him two starts of 2-to-3 innings each during the final few weeks of the 2019 campaign.
Freeland (groin) threw a bullpen session Saturday, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports.

Freeland (groin) threw a bullpen session Saturday, Shaun O'Neill of MLB.com reports.
The 26-year-old last pitched for the Rockies on Aug. 20 before landing on the injured list with the left groin strain. Manager Bud Black still believes Freeland will be able to rejoin the Rockies before the end of the season, bu there's no specific indication of when he might be ready to return.
Freeland (groin) is expected to return from the injured list before the end of the season, Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post reports.
Freeland was placed on the 10-day IL on Aug. 22 with a left groin strain, but he was cleared to resume throwing off the slope of a mound just four days later. It's unclear at this point when he'll advance to throwing off a full mound, but the Rockies are confident he'll be ready to return from the IL at some point within the next few weeks.
Freeland (groin) began a throwing program Sunday, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports.
Freeland's ability to play catch just three days after being placed on the 10-day injured list suggests that his left groin strain isn't viewed as a major concern. Assuming Freeland incurs no setbacks when he eventually progresses to mound work, he should return from the IL when the roster expands Sept. 1 or shortly thereafter.
Freeland was placed on the 10-day injured list Thursday with a left groin strain.
He will be eligible to return on Sept. 1, but it is unclear how much time he will need to recover. The Rockies' rotation has been decimated by injuries, but perhaps Antonio Senzatela or Jeff Hoffman will be recalled to start Sunday's game in St. Louis.
Manager Bud Black said after Tuesday's 8-7 loss to the Diamondbacks that Freeland strained his left groin in the contest and is expected to miss time as a result of the injury, Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post reports.
Based on the low standard he's set this season, Freeland was enjoying a solid outing Tuesday before landing awkwardly on his left leg while following through on a pitch midway through the sixth inning. He had only two earned runs on his ledger before being pulled after 5.1 innings, but reliever Bryan Shaw then came on and allowed the inherited baserunner to score the go-ahead run, leaving Freeland on the hook for his 11th loss. The disappointing outcome is probably the least of Freeland's concerns at the moment, as he likely prepares for his second trip to the injured list of the season after previously missing time with a left middle finger blister in late April. The Rockies will likely send Freeland in for further tests Wednesday to determine the severity of his groin strain along with a projected timeline for his return. Colorado will first require a replacement in the rotation for Freeland on Sunday in St. Louis.
Freeland exited Tuesday's start at Arizona with an apparent leg injury, Nick Groke of The Athletic reports.
Freeland was pulled with one out in the sixth inning and appeared to be limping when he was looked at by the athletic trainer. He gave up five runs (three earned) on five hits with two walks and two strikeouts prior to leaving the contest.
Freeland surrendered five runs on eight hits and one walk over six innings during Wednesday's 7-6 win over the Diamondbacks. He had six strikeouts and did not factor in the decision.
Freeland got into trouble immediately by giving up two runs in the first inning, but he settled down for four scoreless frames before surrendering three more runs in the sixth. The 26-year-old has a 7.01 ERA, 1.67 WHIP and 27:11 K:BB over 34.2 innings across his seven starts since rejoining the Rockies' rotation after the All-Star break. Freeland will get to face the Diamondbacks on the road next week.
Freeland (3-10) allowed three runs on eight hits and two walks while striking out three over six innings to take the loss in Friday's 7-1 defeat at the hands of the Padres.
Freeland can't fully be blamed for the loss, as the Rockies mustered only six hits and didn't score until the ninth inning. He still has unsightly ratios -- 7.06 ERA, 1.61 WHIP -- but he has allowed three runs or less in three of his last four starts. The 26-year-old will carry a 70:35 K:BB over 88 innings into his next start against the Diamondbacks on Wednesday.
