  • Rockies' Kyle Freeland: Picks up injury on basepaths

    Freeland suffered an apparent right shoulder injury on a play at the plate during Monday's game against the Phillies, Luke Zahlmann of The Denver Gazette reports.

    On a night when the Rockies were dealing with a short-handed bench, Freeland was called upon to pinch run in the top of the ninth inning and was involved in a collision at the plate with Philadelphia pitcher Jeff Hoffman. Freeland was in obvious pain walking off the field, though fortunately, he was holding his non-throwing shoulder as he headed for further evaluation. The southpaw will be considered day-to-day until more information on his injury is released. He had tentatively been in line to make his next start during this weekend's home series versus Seattle.

  • Rockies' Kyle Freeland: Ineffective versus Toronto

    Freeland (0-3) was tagged with the loss after he pitched five innings, giving up four runs on seven hits and two walks while striking three batters in Sunday's 5-0 defeat to the Blue Jays.

    Freeland ran into trouble early, giving up one run in the first inning and then two more in the third frame. The Blue Jays added one more run in the fifth inning before his day came to an end. The left-hander once again struggled to keep the opponent off the basepaths, allowing at least eight batters to reach for the fourth consecutive start to open the 2024 campaign. Freeland has yet to pitch into the sixth inning this season, something he'll look to accomplish in his next projected start Saturday at home versus the Mariners.

  • Rockies' Kyle Freeland: Throws five frames

    Freeland allowed four runs (two earned) on six hits and two walks over five innings in a no-decision Monday. He struck out two during the win over Arizona.

    Freeland worked three scoreless frames before the Diamondbacks plated four runs in the fourth inning. While it wasn't a very impressive performance, it was a dramatic improvement after he'd been tagged with 17 runs over his first 5.2 innings. However, he forced just four swinging strikes Monday, his lowest of 2024. Freeland is now sporting a 6:6 K:BB with a 16.03 ERA through three starts. He's projected to take the mound in Toronto this weekend.

  • Rockies' Kyle Freeland: Mauled by Cubbies

    Freeland (0-2) took the loss Tuesday, surrendering seven runs on nine hits and three walks over 3.1 innings as the Rockies were routed 12-2 by the Cubs. He struck out two.

    Chicago put at least one run on the board in every inning the southpaw pitched, starting with a two-run homer by Seiya Suzuki in the first inning. Freeland has had a brutal beginning to the season, coughing up 17 runs in only 5.2 innings -- and he hasn't even pitched at Coors Field yet. The 30-year-old lines up to make his first home start early next week against Arizona, the team that lit him up for 10 runs on Opening Day.

  • Rockies' Kyle Freeland: Gashed by Diamondbacks in opener

    Freeland (0-1) took the loss against Arizona on Thursday, allowing 10 runs on 10 hits and one walk while striking out two batters over 2.1 innings.

    Freeland scuffled from the outset, yielding a two-run homer to Lourdes Gurriel on his sixth pitch of the contest. He made it through the second inning without any further damage, but he allowed seven straight Arizona batters to reach base before recording an out in the third and was ultimately charged with eight earned runs in the frame. Though Freeland is as close as it gets to an ace for Colorado for the time being, he hasn't posted an ERA better than 4.33 since 2018 and has very little fantasy appeal given his home park and lack of strikeout potential.

  • Rockies' Kyle Freeland: Set for Opening Day start

    Freeland will start on Opening Day for the Rockies.

    He'll take the ball March 28 on the road against the Diamondbacks. Freeland has had a strong showing this spring, displaying increased velocity and posting a 3.21 ERA and 14:1 K:BB over 14 innings. He's not an advisable fantasy start at home but could be considered as a streaming option on the road.

  • Rockies' Kyle Freeland: Bump in velo

    Freeland has increased the velocity on all of his pitches this spring, Manny Randhawa of reports.

    Freeland made his second start of the spring Tuesday and allowed only one earned run across three innings while striking out five. More importantly, he averaged 92.6 mph with his fastball, nearly three ticks higher than his average mark in 2023. Freeland has been able to throw all of his pitches with more velocity, and he credits strengthening his shoulder during the offseason as well as working on his pitch grips for the improved performance.

  • Rockies' Kyle Freeland: Strong spring debut

    Freeland threw two perfect innings with one strikeout in Friday's Cactus League victory over Seattle.

    Friday marked Freeland's first start this spring after he spent the offseason recovering from an oblique injury that put an early end to his 2023 campaign. Though his strong outing Friday was encouraging from a health perspective, Freeland is unlikely to be a reliable fantasy option in 2024 after posting a 5.03 ERA and 1.47 WHIP last year alongside a poor 5.4 K/9.

  • Rockies' Kyle Freeland: Officially moves to injured list

    Freeland (oblique) was placed on the 15-day injured list Sunday.

    The move to the injured list was to be expected for the left-hander, who will miss the rest of the season with an oblique strain after leaving Game 2 of Saturday's doubleheader against the Giants. Freeland finishes the 2023 campaign with a 5.03 ERA, 1.47 WHIP and 94:42 K:BB across 155.2 innings. The 30-year-old inked an extension with Colorado in April of last year and is signed through at least 2026.

  • Rockies' Kyle Freeland: Likely done for season

    Freeland injured his oblique during Saturday's start in Game 2 of a doubleheader against San Francisco and is unlikely to pitch again in 2023, per

    Freeland initially felt pain in the second inning but finished out that frame and one more before exiting. He allowed a run on four hits and one walk while striking out one batter prior to his departure. The veteran hurler acknowledged after the contest that his season is likely over, saying, "It's the right move to get me out and get healthy through the rest of the season, and go into the offseason healthy." If Freeland has indeed thrown his last pitch of 2023, he'll finish with a 6-14 record, 5.03 ERA, 1.47 WHIP and 94:42 K:BB over 155.2 innings. He's signed with Colorado through 2026.

  • Rockies' Kyle Freeland: Posts quality start Monday

    Freeland allowed three runs on eight hits and no walks while striking out two batters over six innings in a no-decision versus the Cubs on Monday.

    Freeland allowed just one run through four frames before fading a bit and yielding a single score in each of the fifth and sixth innings. That was still enough to earn him his second straight quality start, the first time he has accomplished back-to-back quality starts since mid-May. Freeland isn't really on the fantasy radar outside of deeper leagues, however, as he has posted a poor 5.07 ERA, 1.47 WHIP and 93:41 K:BB over 152.2 innings on the campaign.

  • Rockies' Kyle Freeland: Bounces back with quality start

    Freeland (6-14) allowed two runs on six hits and three walks while striking out two over six innings to earn the win Tuesday over the Diamondbacks.

    Freeland was hit hard at home versus Atlanta in his last start, but he was able to bounce back in this outing. This was the first time he'd walked multiple batters in a start since July 9. The southpaw is now at a 5.09 ERA, 1.47 WHIP and 91:41 K:BB through 146.2 innings over 27 starts this season. Freeland is projected for a home start versus the Cubs next week.

  • Rockies' Kyle Freeland: Downed by Atlanta

    Freeland dropped to 5-14 while allowing seven runs (six earned) on eight hits and a walk while striking out three over 5.2 innings in Wednesday's 7-3 loss to Atlanta.

    Facing baseball's most powerful offense at Coors Field was always going to be tricky for Freeland. He ended up with a sour end to a mediocre August in which he went 1-3 while allowing 25 runs (24 earned) over 33.2 innings across six starts. The poor month elevated his ERA from 4.79 to 5.18, and he has a 1.47 WHIP and 89:38 K:BB over 140.2 innings this season. Freeland is projected to make his next start on the road in Arizona.

  • Rockies' Kyle Freeland: Hurls quality start

    Freeland did not factor into the decision Friday, allowing three runs on eight hits and zero walks over six innings against the Orioles. He struck out three.

    It was the 10th time in his past 11 starts that Freeland has allowed three or more earned runs. However, despite allowing eight hits including a couple of homers, Freeland limited the damage and left with the lead after six innings, although his bullpen couldn't make it hold up. He will take a season ERA of 5.00 into his next start, currently slated to take place at home next week against Atlanta.

  • Rockies' Kyle Freeland: Does enough to win

    Freeland (5-13) earned the win over the White Sox on Saturday, allowing four runs on eight hits and one walk while striking out six batters over five innings.

    Freeland needed 95 pitches to get through five frames, but he capitalized on a barrage of run support to pick up his first victory since May 14. The veteran struggled over 14 starts between victories, posting a 6.19 ERA, 1.71 WHIP and 39:24 K:BB over 72.2 innings while going 0-9. Despite getting into the win column Saturday, Freeland allowed four runs for the third time in his past four outings.

  • Rockies' Kyle Freeland: Gives up four runs in loss

    Freeland (4-13) allowed four runs on six hits and a walk while striking out one over five innings to take the loss Sunday versus the Dodgers.

    Freeland has lost five of his last six starts, and he's given up at least four runs four times in that span. The southpaw has given up six home runs over three starts in August, with the light-hitting Miguel Rojas the latest to take him deep with a solo shot Sunday. Freeland is at a 4.94 ERA, 1.46 WHIP and 77:36 K:BB through 124 innings over 23 starts this season. He's lined up to make his next start at home versus the White Sox.

  • Rockies' Kyle Freeland: Tosses quality start

    Freeland did not factor into the decision Tuesday, allowing three runs on eight hits and zero walks over six innings against the Brewers. He struck out four.

    Although he allowed eight of Milwaukee's nine hits Tuesday, Freeland's refusal to issue free passes helped him break his streak of four consecutive starts with a loss. However, the 30-year-old lefty was given a lead to work with twice but gave them both up immediately courtesy of home runs from William Contreras in the third inning and Andruw Monasterio in the seventh. Freeland was pulled shortly after Monasterio's homer and remains in search of his first win since May 14 against Philadelphia.

  • Rockies' Kyle Freeland: Falls to San Diego

    Freeland (4-12) took the loss Wednesday, allowing four runs on seven hits and a walk over six innings against the Padres. He struck out six.

    Freeland was done in by the long ball Wednesday -- all four runs against him came via home runs. The 30-year-old southpaw is still looking for his first win since May 14. Freeland's now 0-8 with a 6.28 ERA over his last 12 starts (61.2 innings). Overall, his ERA is up to 4.86 with a 1.47 WHIP and 72:35 K:BB across 21 starts (113 innings) this season.

  • Rockies' Kyle Freeland: Yields five runs in return

    Freeland (4-11) allowed five runs (three earned) on nine hits over four innings Friday, striking out three and taking a loss against Oakland.

    Making his first start since July 9 after a stint on the injured list, Freeland stumbled out of the gate; all five runs that scored against him came during the first three innings. While only three runs were earned, Freeland's ERA still rose to 4.79 through 107 innings. He threw 70 pitches Friday and should be fine for a full workload in his next outing, which is currently projected to be at home against San Diego.
