Freeland is finding out what it's like to scuffle as the homegrown star -- where the local fanbase has by no means turned on him, but is certainly concerned about the southpaw's output this season.

Friday Rockpile: Success on the mound still not found

Rockies news and links for May 24, 2019 Rockies Insider: The Rockies’ pitching rotation is a disaster -- minus German Marquez | Denver Post ($) With the exception of German Marquez, the Rockies’ rotation has been struggling. Kyle Freeland is missing that special factor he had last season when he was in contention for the Cy Young Award. Jon Gray, while improving from last year, hasn’t been very consistent, and neither has Antonio Senzatela. Tyler Anderson is likely going to have knee surgery, taking him out for this season. While we can’t say it’s entirely the fault of pitching,...

Colorado Rockies podcast: What’s with Kyle Freeland and the crowded infield?

Episode 4 of Affected by Altitude focuses on Kyle Freeland’s struggles and the playing time crunch around the infield What’s up with Kyle Freeland? The Cy Young contender from a year ago has looked nothing like the ace he has shown the capability of being. Is there anything from beyond the results that we can point to as a reason for his struggles? And with top prospect Brendan Rodgers called up, how will playing time be balanced around the right side of the infield? Sam Bradfield, Ben Kouchnerkavich, Eric Garcia McKinley and Adam Peterson are all on the case. AxA is a bimonthly...

Phillies 7, Rockies 5: Rockies out-homered in loss

The Rockies were unable to avoid the sweep In a back-and-forth affair at Citizens Bank Park, the Rockies ultimately were not victorious. The game included six home runs: Charlie Blackmon’s 33rd leadoff home run (third of the season), two by Ryan McMahon, and one by Trevor Story (as well as two-run shots by Bryce Harper and JT Realmuto for the Phillies). What’s bugging Kyle Freeland? Kyle Freeland only lasted 1 2⁄3 innings today — his shortest non-injury start of his career. Over the course of those 1 2⁄3 innings, he allowed three runs on four hits with three walks and two...

The Rockies look to avoid the sweep once again The Rockies continue their east coast road trip through Philadelphia before heading to Pittsburgh for a three game set on Tuesday. They’ve lost three in a row and are looking to avoid the sweep at the hands of the Phillies. Both teams are streaky right now, but the Phillies certainly have the better record at 26-19 to the Rockies 20-24. Kyle Freeland will take the mound for the Rockies against Jerad Eickhoff. The 28-year-old righty boasts a 2.65 ERA in six starts in 2019 with ten earned runs over 34 innings with 13 walks and 33 strikeouts....

Colorado Rockies: Here’s what’s wrong with Kyle Freeland

DENVER—In 2018 Kyle Freeland‘s fourth place NL Cy Young Award finish led the Colorado Rockies to the NLDS. In 2019, he’s had a rough start. Finishing with the best single-season ERA in Rockies history at 2.85, Freeland is already at 5.84 this year. He has allowed an NL-high 29 earned runs thus far which is 45 percent […] Colorado Rockies: Here’s what’s wrong with Kyle Freeland - Rox Pile - Rox Pile - A Colorado Rockies Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Rockies ace Kyle Freeland rebounds — somewhat — after worst outing of his career

The southpaw pitched five innings, giving up five runs (three earned) on four walks and four hits. It certainly wasn't Cy Young-caliber as Freeland was so often last season, but it showed promise of progression in certain aspects.

Rockies 12, Giants 11: Rox win wild one at Coors

Rockies 12, Giants 11: Rox win wild one at Coors

The Rockies lost a 7-0 lead at one point but held on to win A little snow never hurt anyone, right? Certainly didn’t hurt the Rockies offense on Thursday afternoon as they went on to beat the Giants 12-11 in a good ol’ fashioned Coors Slugfest. Home runs from Nolan Arenado (and one “foul ball” that went to the concourse), Mark Reynolds, and Ian Desmond carried the team to victory and Kyle Freeland recovered from his ugly start last Saturday against the Dbacks. The Rockies had a 12-9 lead heading into the ninth inning, but Wade Davis and the Giants made it more interesting than it...

Game no. 37 thread: Freeland vs. Holland

Start time, lineups, and discussion for what figures to be a cold game in Denver. The last time the Rockies (16-20) got rained out they...lost three straight. But then they turned around and won eight of ten. So, you know, maybe it’ll be a good thing? In case you missed it, yesterday’s game was postponed to July 15 as part of a split double-header. Today, Kyle Freeland tries to right his and the Rockies’ ship against Derek Holland of the Giants (16-20). A Rockies loss drops them into the NL West cellar. A win gives them a one-game cushion on the Giants with the Padres coming to town...
