RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2018

Subscribe now to see our 2018 outlook.

2017

Freeland has not quite lived up to expectations as a first-round pick in 2014, but he still may end up being a serviceable big-league hurler. The lefty is a groundball pitcher, which is particularly important since he will play his future home games in the thin air of Colorado. His control is also above-average, and he got stronger in that department as the season progressed; Freeland walked just 19 batters in 73.2 innings at Triple-A to finish the season. The limiting factor is his lack of strikeouts. Freeland managed just 108 strikeouts in 162 combined innings in 2016, and his strikeout rate was no better the season before at High-A. He may be given a chance to compete for a rotation spot in spring training, but Freeland will likely end up back at Triple-A to begin the campaign with the chance to appear in the big leagues as a reliever later in the season.

2016

Freeland may have been out of sight and out of the minds of many for most of 2015, but there are reasons not to forget about the No. 8 pick in the 2014 draft. He has been sidelined for much of his professional career, first with shoulder fatigue, then following a procedure to remove bone chips in his elbow. However, he returned to the mound in late July, first for two starts at rookie ball, and then finishing with seven starts for High-A Modesto. A 4.05 ERA, 1.29 WHIP, and 28:10 K:BB over 46.2 innings across both stops probably won’t excite dynasty league owners, and the lack of strikeouts are particularly concerning, but he gets a bit of pass considering it was his first game action in almost a year. Good size and athleticism should aid him in the upper levels, and if his stuff returns to where it was two years ago, Freeland could still reach his potential as a No. 3 starter.

2015

Following a dazzling junior year at the University of Evansville, Freeland was selected eighth overall by the Rockies in the 2014 first-year player draft. The Rockies made quick work in signing the left-hander, who debuted with their rookie club in July before finishing the season with five starts at Low-A Asheville, where he gave up just two runs and struck out 18 batters over 21.2 innings. The Rockies intentionally capped his pitch counts due to the high number of innings he had thrown for Evansville in the spring, but he’ll be on tap for a full workload in 2015, perhaps opening the season a level up in the California League. The 21-year-old doesn’t have overpowering stuff, but does an excellent job of painting the strike zone with his low-90s fastball, low-80s slider and an improving changeup. His early success has been encouraging and could allow him to rise through the Rockies’ system quickly, but he’ll first need to prove himself against the competition in the upper minors before receiving a big-league shot.
