Freeland (1-6) lost Thursday's 3-0 affair with the Padres, allowing one run on eight hits and a walk with four strikeouts in six innings.
Freeland allowed his lone run on back-to-back doubles to leadoff the game and only encountered trouble again in the sixth when San Diego ran into two outs at the plate. Freeland has pitched to a superb 2.40 ERA in five July starts, though he's been tagged as the loser in his last four turns thanks to receiving an anemic six total runs of support in July.
Freeland (1-5) lost Saturday's 1-0 contest against the Dodgers, allowing one run on five hits with six strikeouts in seven innings.
Freeland navigated a potent Los Angeles lineup and required just 89 pitches to endure seven strong innings, but he ended up the loser as Colorado managed just two hits against Los Angeles' staff. The lefty has lost three straight starts despite a solid 3.50 ERA over the stretch and will look to get back in the win column against San Diego next week.
Freeland (1-4) allowed three earned runs on six hits while striking out four across six innings, taking the loss to the Dodgers on Saturday.
Freeland provided a quality start, but the Rockies could not support him with enough runs to win. He allowed two doubles and a home run to Mookie Betts, which led to most of the runs scored against him. After a rough start, he's allowed just six runs over his last 28 innings pitched. The 28-year-old has a 5.36 ERA and a 1.58 WHIP in 48.2 innings.
Freeland (finger) is listed as the Rockies' probable starting pitcher for Sunday's game against the Dodgers.
Freeland's final start of the first half July 9 against the Padres ended early due to a blister on his pitching hand, but the All-Star break will afford the southpaw plenty of time to recover. Assuming he's able to complete a bullpen session later this week without incident, he'll take the hill for the third game of the Rockies' series with the Dodgers.
Freeland exited Friday's game after five innings due to a blister on his left middle finger, Daniel Guerrero of MLB.com reports.
The lefty certainly had more in the tank after throwing just 64 pitches but could not continue pitching with the blister. It's unclear how severe the blister is, but the looming All-Star break gives Freeland some additional recovery time before his next scheduled start.
Freeland (1-3) lost Friday's 4-2 game against San Diego, allowing three runs on six hits and two walks with three strikeouts in five innings.
Freeland had allowed just a single run through five innings but was removed after permitting the first two batters in the sixth to reach base, at which point reliever Tyler Kinley allowed both to score to saddle Freeland with the loss. The lefty only threw 64 pitches in the short appearance and surrendered three runs or less for the fourth straight start.
Freeland fired six scoreless innings, giving up three hits and three walks while striking out three against the Cardinals on Saturday. He did not factor into the decision.
Freeland has not allowed a run in his last two starts. He has a 0.53 ERA and 17 strikeouts in his last 17 innings pitched. However, the 28-year-old still has a 5.50 ERA and 1.67 WHIP with just a 6.9 K/9 over 37.2 innings this season. His successful start shows that his hamstring injury isn't much of an issue.
Freeland (hamstring) will stay on turn in the Colorado rotation to start Saturday's game against the Cardinals at Coors Field, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports.
The Rockies will have Triple-A Albuquerque pitcher Jose Mujica on standby as a member of the taxi squad to make a spot start if Freeland incurs a setback leading up to the 9:10 pm ET opening pitch, but the team's medical staff appears confident in the health of the southpaw's left hamstring. Freeland, who exited his last start Monday against the Pirates due to hamstring cramping, was able to complete a bullpen session Thursday without incident.
Freeland (hamstring) will throw a bullpen session Thursday, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports.
Freeland left Monday's start with hamstring cramping, but he played catch from 120 feet Wednesday and was able to continue his normal progression between starts. Assuming he feels good after the bullpen session, the southpaw will likely be ready to start against the Cardinals on Saturday.
Freeland (hamstring) was spotted playing catch from about 120 feet Wednesday, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports.
After cruising through five scoreless innings Monday against the Pirates, Freeland's start ended early when he experienced cramping in his left hamstring. The fact that Freeland was able to throw two days later suggests the hamstring won't be much of a concern moving forward, so the lefty looks like he'll be ready to pitch by the time his next turn in the rotation comes up Saturday against the Cardinals. He'll likely throw a bullpen session Thursday before the Rockies sign off on him starting this weekend.
Freeland left Monday's start against the Pirates due to cramping, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports.
Initial reports are positive for the southpaw after exiting early Monday, and the team is optimistic this won't be a long-term injury, per Harding. He'll be considered day-to-day moving forward.
Freeland exited Monday's start against the Pirates with an apparent left hamstring injury, Kyle Newman of The Denver Post reports.
The left-hander helped himself by reaching twice on bunt attempts, but he appeared to tweak his hamstring running from first to third base during the bottom of the fifth inning. Freeland was working on a shutout prior to the injury with three hits and a walk allowed while striking out seven over five frames. It's unclear if the injury will affect his next turn through the rotation, which lines up for this weekend versus the Cardinals.
Freeland didn't factor into the decision Tuesday against the Mariners after tossing six innings of one-run ball, giving up five hits and a walk while fanning seven.
Freeland has been struggling mightily during most of the season, but he delivered an improved effort this time around and delivered his first quality start of the campaign. This was just the second time Freeland allowed less than three runs in an outing, but he still owns an inflated 7.76 ERA across six outings (26.2 innings). He's scheduled to take the ball again during the weekend series at the Brewers.
Freeland allowed five runs on nine hits and two walks with three strikeouts in 3.2 innings versus San Diego on Wednesday. He did not factor in the decision.
Freeland turned in another lackluster outing, which saw him allow home runs to Fernando Tatis and Trent Grisham in the third inning. Across his last three starts, Freeland has given up 19 runs (18 earned) in 12.2 innings. The southpaw has a 9.58 ERA, 2.27 WHIP and 12:11 K:BB in 20.2 innings overall after missing almost all of the first two months of the season with a shoulder injury. His next turn in the rotation is projected to be a decent road matchup in Seattle.
Freeland (0-2) allowed nine runs (eight earned) on eight hits and a walk with two strikeouts in four-plus innings, taking the loss versus Cincinnati on Friday.
Freeland allowed one home run in each of the first five innings -- he was relieved by Yency Almonte after Tyler Stephenson's solo shot led off the fifth inning. Friday was by far the worst of Freeland's four starts this year. The southpaw has struggled to a 9.00 ERA, 2.12 WHIP and 9:9 K:BB across 17 innings. A lack of better starting options on the major-league roster keeps Freeland in the rotation. He is projected for an unfavorable home start versus San Diego next week.
Freeland (0-1) took the loss against Oakland on Saturday, tossing five innings and allowing five runs on 10 hits and one walk. He struck out one.
Freeland fell behind early, giving up a two-run homer to Matt Olson in the first inning. The southpaw gave up another homer and two total runs in the third, then surrendered another run in the fifth before departing. Freeland did pitch a season-high five frames, but he drove his ERA up to 6.23 with the rough outing. His next start is tentatively scheduled for Friday at Cincinnati.
Freeland allowed three runs on five hits and four walks while striking out one in four innings during Sunday's win over the Pirates. He didn't factor into the decision.
Freeland gave up just one run in his season debut Tuesday, but he was slightly less effective against Pittsburgh. The southpaw tossed two scoreless innings to begin Sunday's game, but the Pirates were able to manufacture runs in the third and fourth innings prior to Freeland's removal. Freeland hasn't lasted more than two innings in either of his first two starts of the year and has had to settle for no-decisions in each appearance. He tentatively lines up to make his next start at home against the Athletics on Saturday.
Freeland did not factor into the decision during Tuesday's loss to the Mets after allowing one run on four hits and three walks while striking out five through four innings.
Making his 2021 debut after getting sidelined by a left shoulder strain during spring training, Freeland turned in a solid outing. Although he was pitching against an injury-riddled Mets lineup, the left-hander coughed up just one run in the first frame, allowing a leadoff single and a walk that led to an RBI groundout by James McCann. Overall, he threw 74 pitches, including 38 strikes. The 28-year-old is projected to make his second start of the season Sunday at Pittsburgh.
The Rockies reinstated Freeland (shoulder) from the 10-day injured list prior to his start Tuesday against the Mets.
Colorado optioned reliever Lucas Gilbreath to Triple-A Albuquerque following Monday's series opener to clear room on the 26-man active roster for Freeland. The 28-year-old southpaw will be making his 2021 debut in Flushing after he required nearly two months of rehab for a left shoulder strain sustained late in spring training. Freeland built up to 79 pitches and six innings in his final rehab start with Albuquerque on Thursday, so he shouldn't face any major restrictions in Tuesday's outing.
Freeland (shoulder) is on track to start Tuesday against the Mets, Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post reports.
The 28-year-old covered six innings during a rehab start with Triple-A Albuquerque on Thursday, and he should remain on a five-day schedule to start Tuesday. Freeland has been sidelined by the shoulder strain since late March and will have a tough time securing the win in his season debut with Jacob deGrom (side) also poised to return from the injured list for the Mets.
