  • Rockies' Kyle Freeland: Transferred to 60-day IL

    Freeland (elbow) was moved to the 60-day injured list Friday.

    Freeland was placed on the 15-day injured list back in the middle of April, but despite throwing a bullpen session Wednesday, he has been shifted to the 60-day IL. He'll be eligible for activation in mid-June.

  • Rockies' Kyle Freeland: Resumes mound work

    Freeland (elbow) threw a bullpen session Wednesday, Thomas Harding of reports.

    It's a significant step in Freeland's rehab program, as it's the first time he's thrown off a mound since he landed on the injured list in mid-April with an elbow strain. The left-hander now needs to build up his arm strength before facing live batters and embarking on a rehab assignment, so he's likely still about a month away from rejoining Colorado's rotation.

  • Rockies' Kyle Freeland: Still limited to playing catch

    Freeland (elbow) threw from about 50 feet Sunday, reports.

    Freeland has been able to play catch for around the last 10 days, and he threw his fastball with a regular pitching motion Sunday. He still doesn't have a date to return throwing from a mound and will need to progress to bullpens and live batting practice sessions before engaging in a rehab assignment. The Rockies have projected Freeland will return in mid-June, though his current pace in recovery suggests that's an optimistic timeline.

  • Rockies' Kyle Freeland: Not considered close to return

    Manager Bud Black said Saturday that Freeland (elbow) is "a week or 10 days away from getting on the mound," reports.

    Freeland played catch Thursday, Friday and Saturday and seems to have responded well to the workouts, but the Rockies aren't yet ready to have him advance to the next phase of his rehab program for his strained left elbow. While Freeland might join the Rockies for their upcoming road trip that begins Monday, the veteran southpaw will still be limited to playing catch and doesn't yet appear to be close to a return from the 15-day injured list. Given that he'll still need to complete a minor-league rehab assignment after he resumes throwing off a mound and facing hitters, Freeland doesn't look like he'll be an option for Colorado's rotation until around mid-June.

  • Rockies' Kyle Freeland: Plays catch Wednesday

    Freeland (elbow) played catch Thursday, Patrick Lyons of reports.

    It's the first time the left-hander has done any throwing since he landed on the 15-day injured list in mid-April with a left elbow strain. Freeland will continue with a throwing progression as tolerated but it's too soon to say when he might be ready to re-enter the Rockies' rotation.

  • Rockies' Kyle Freeland: Ready to resume throwing

    Freeland (elbow) will resume throwing in the first week of May, reports.

    Freeland has been shut down since mid-April, but manager Bud Black relayed that Freeland is responding well to treatment and will begin ramping up his activity. If things go smoothly in his recovery, he could return in late May.

  • Rockies' Kyle Freeland: Won't need surgery

    Freeland (elbow) won't need surgery but is expected to miss about 4-to-6 weeks, reports.

    Freeland is still resting the injury and could be out until late June, though it's a positive that he'll avoid surgery. He struggled mightily until being sidelined, as he posted a 13.21 ERA and 2.55 WHIP across 15.2 innings. Peter Lambert has entered the rotation in Freeland's place.

  • Rockies' Kyle Freeland: Heads to IL with strained elbow

    Freeland was placed on the 15-day injured list by the Rockies on Friday, retroactive to April 16, with a left elbow strain.

    Freeland had been slated to start Saturday in spite of an injury to his right (non-throwing) shoulder that he suffered while pinch running. However, he now has a different, more serious injury to deal with. It's not clear at this point how much time Freeland might miss. Noah Davis has taken Freeland's spot on the roster, though Peter Lambert will take his spot in the rotation.

  • Rockies' Kyle Freeland: Ready for next start

    Freeland (shoulder) feels fine Tuesday and will have his usual throwing session before his next turn through the rotation, Luke Zahlmann of The Denver Gazette reports.

    The left-hander was used as a pinch runner Monday since the Rockies have a short-handed bench, and he suffered an injury to his non-throwing shoulder on a play at the plate. Thankfully it's a minor issue and won't affect Freeland's preparation for his next start, which lines up for this weekend versus Seattle.

  • 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.
