Rockies' Kyle Freeland: Seven strong innings Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Freeland allowed two runs on seven hits and walk and struck out two over seven innings in a no-decision Tuesday versus the Diamondbacks.

Freeland dueled with Diamondbacks starter Zac Gallen effectively across seven innings before both bullpens had some dodgy moments. The only damage on Freeland's line came in the form of solo home runs by Christian Walker and Carson Kelly. The 27-year-old Freeland has a 2.45 ERA, 1.09 WHIP and 13 strikeouts across 25.2 innings this season. He's expected to make his next start at home Sunday versus the Rangers.

Rockies' Kyle Freeland: Escapes with effective start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Freeland allowed three earned runs on eight hits and two walks while striking out two across 6.2 innings Thursday against the Giants. He did not factor into the decision.

Freeland pitched six scoreless innings despite allowing at least one runner to reach base in five of those frames. However, he ran into trouble when he was put back on the mound in the seventh inning, as he allowed three consecutive hits with two outs -- the final one being a three-run home run by Mauricio Dubon. Despite the rough ending to his outing, Freeland largely continued his effective work on the mound this season, as he now has a 2.41 ERA across 18.2 innings. He's scheduled to make his next start Tuesday against Arizona.

Rockies' Kyle Freeland: Spins gem Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Freeland (2-0) earned the win versus the Padres on Saturday, pitching six scoreless innings. He allowed just two hits and a walk while striking four.

It was a masterful performance for Freeland, and plenty of run support from the Rockies allowed him to cruise to the win. The southpaw has a 1.50 ERA and 0.83 WHIP with nine strikeouts in 12 innings to start the year. It's still tough to trust Rockies starters in general at home, but Freeland's been strong in his first two turns through the rotation. A home start versus the Giants awaits Freeland on Thursday.

Rockies' Kyle Freeland: Goes six innings in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Freeland (1-0) tossed six innings Sunday, allowing two runs on four hits and earning a win over the Rangers. He struck out five batters and walked three.

Freeland served up a homer to Joey Gallo in the second inning and allowed another run in the third but was able to settle in after that. After a disastrous 2019 campaign, it was a promising start to 2020 for the 6-foot-4 southpaw. Expect to see Freeland take the mound again at home against San Diego next weekend.

Rockies' Kyle Freeland: Opens season as No. 3 starter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rockies manager Bud Black confirmed Freeland will start the team's third game of the season Friday in Texas, Nick Groke of The Athletic reports.

After turning in a 2.85 ERA over 33 starts in 2018, Freeland regressed in a major way in 2019, submitting a 6.73 ERA and 1.58 WHIP across 22 outings. The massive decline in performance wasn't enough to prevent Freeland from breaking summer camp with a spot in the middle of the rotation, which speaks to the Rockies' lack of attractive alternative starting options more than anything. In deeper leagues, Freeland may be a more reliable fantasy option in favorable road matchups, and at least for his first start, he should benefit from the Rangers' new ballpark (Globe Life Field) likely playing more pitcher-friendly than its predecessor. Like most starters, Freeland is best left avoided when he takes the hill at Coors Field, where he sports a 4.34 ERA, 1.39 WHIP and 7.2 K/9 in 228.1 career innings.

Rockies' Kyle Freeland: Starting Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

March 5, 2020 01:40 PM
Rockies' Kyle Freeland: Should return Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Rockies' Kyle Freeland: Likely missing next spring start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Rockies' Kyle Freeland: Exits with back spasms
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Rockies' Kyle Freeland: Signs without arbitrator
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Rockies' Kyle Freeland: Struggles in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Rockies' Kyle Freeland: Final outing coming Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Rockies' Kyle Freeland: Two scoreless innings in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Rockies' Kyle Freeland: Reinstated and starting
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Rockies' Kyle Freeland: Tosses sim game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Rockies' Kyle Freeland: Tosses bullpen session
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Freeland (groin) threw a bullpen session Saturday, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports.

Freeland has been out with a groin strain since Aug. 20. He's expected to throw live batting practice soon and should still have time to get back into game action prior to the end of the season.

September 11, 2019 06:40 PM
Rockies' Kyle Freeland: Could return next week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Freeland (groin) will likely throw one more bullpen session before coming off the 10-day injured list, Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post reports.

He has now thrown a couple bullpen sessions and could return sometime next week, although he likely won't be fully built back up as a starter. Freeland had a 6.75 ERA in eight second-half starts before landing on the shelf.

September 7, 2019 11:44 PM
Rockies' Kyle Freeland: Completes bullpen session
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

September 3, 2019 12:52 PM
Rockies' Kyle Freeland: Should pitch again in 2019
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

August 26, 2019 05:32 PM
Rockies' Kyle Freeland: Cleared to throw
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.
