kyle freeland leading rookie trio carrying rockies on the road


san diego — with the power to prompt a bundle of groundballs, rockies rookie kyle freeland often leaves hitters sprinting for a base they will never reach. the 23-year-old left-hander has forced more earth-based hits this season than any other pitcher.and on thursday, freeland capped a six-game, two-stop road trip — a swing dominated by colorado’s rookie arms — with a commanding performance in the rockies’ 3-2 victory over the padres in 11 innings.colorado finished three-game series at arizona and san diego with a 4-2 record, with three of those victories coming in games started by a rookie pitcher. two of those victories came in freeland’s games.“three guys who are rookies — and i mean legit rookies — i’m very proud of these guys,” colorado manager bud black said. “how they’re going about

there is an art to the mound visit. the pitcher’s circle is his preserve, an invitation-only island of focus and calculation. any other player trying to broach that area had better come correct.“pitchers are a little different,” rockies third baseman nolan arenado said. “they like to be quiet and mind their own business. sometimes you don’t want to cross a line with them or get in the way of their zone when they’re locked in.”when kyle freeland, the rockies’ 23-year-old left-hander who debuted friday at coors field, scuffled through the first inning and loaded the bases, arenado made a pass and walked toward the mound. arenado will never visit tyler chatwood or tyler anderson. those pitchers would look right through an infielder. freeland needed some attention.“he’s a young buck. i think h






kyle freeland is living by the groundball. the rockies, at homer-heavy coors fie


kyle freeland’s loudest out saturday was a punch. two on, two out in the sixth in a one-run game. the 23-year-old left-hander, an anchor in the rockies’ rookie-heavy rotation, threw a sinkerball to strike out a giants threat, whiffing pinch-hitter brandon belt.“big at-bat, he got him,” colorado manager bud black said. “thing about the strikeout is, the ball doesn’t leave the field.”but neither do groundballs. freeland forced 15 groundballs among the 22 the giants put in play saturday in the rockies’ 5-1 victory, a rate by which the denver native is conquering coors field. his 58.7 percent groundball rate this season is the best in the national league, followed closely by colorado veteran tyler chatwood (58.4 percent) and san diego’s clayton richard (58.3).freeland, by extension, is transla

the rockies are leaning on rookie pitchers. but how long can they last?


los angeles — kyle freeland sat alone friday with one leg draped off a dugout railing at dodger stadium, watching with some intent the batting practice of clayton kershaw. the best and most sturdy pitcher of this era is worth emulating, even his swings. freeland wanted only the sun.“i just came outside to get warm,” freeland said. “the clubhouse was a little cold.”in the snap of back-to-back blowout losses last week, the rockies turned a luxury of youthful pitching depth into a shouted reminder of the ledge they are navigating with rookies. no other team in the majors is pitching more rookies over more games than the rockies. and no other team in at least a decade has done it so well.but a chill has overcome the rockies’ progress. not because of the losses, exactly, but the potential for w
