SP - COL
The Rockies and LHP Kyle Freeland avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $5.025 million deal.
Freeland made 13 starts for Colorado last year, posting a 4.33 ERA with just 46 strikeouts in 70 2/3 innings. We don't expect him to carry much fantasy relevance entering 2021.
Kyle Freeland fell to 2-3 on Sunday against the Diamondbacks, giving up six runs on eight hits over 2 1/3 innings pitched.
Freeland struck out two and walked two as the Rockies lost 11-3. It's a disappointing performance for anyone who streamed him on the season's final day. Overall, Freeland bounced back from a disastrous 2019 campaign in which he was optioned to the minors. Still, it's not as if he can be counted on as a reliable fantasy starter heading into 2021.
Kyle Freeland threw yet another quality start in the Rockies' eventual loss to the Giants on Tuesday, allowing just two runs on five hits over six innings pitched.
Freeland isn't much of a bat-misser and recorded just one strikeout in this one. He has a very respectable 3.69 ERA for the season and will once again be on the streaming radar this weekend against Arizona.
Kyle Freeland fell to 2-2 on Thursday against the Dodgers, giving up four runs on six hits over 6 1/3 innings pitched.
Overall, it's been a somewhat serviceable year for Freeland, who now has a 3.75 ERA through 11 starts. It's certainly a bounce-back from a disastrous 2019 campaign in which he was sent to the minors for a stretch. Freeland gets the Giants on the road next week in what could be his final start of 2020.
Kyle Freeland received a no-decision in Saturday's start against the Angels, giving up two runs on four hits over six solid frames.
This makes two straight productive outings for Freeland, who has given up a combined two runs in his last 12 innings. Of course, the two starts before that didn't go to well, which is why it'll always be tough to trust a Rockies starter in fantasy. A tough matchup with the Dodgers is on deck.
