Rockies’ Freeland looks to regain ace form of last season

DENVER (AP) — On the eve of his next start, Rockies left-hander Kyle Freeland was looking to regain his past form.

Freeland (2-5) was slated to start for Colorado on Thursday against the San Francisco Giants after coming off a tough outing last Saturday in which he went six innings against Arizona. He allowed a career-high eight runs on nine hits, including three home runs, the most he had allowed in a game. He has lost five of six outings since winning the team’s season opener in Miami.

The rough start is in sharp contrast to the year he fashioned last season, when he went 17-7 with a 2.85 ERA.

Rockies manager Bud Black said before Wednesday’s rainout of Game 2 in the Giants-Rockies series that Freeland’s problems this season stem primarily from location issues and difficulty finding the proper release point to keep his pitches in the low zone.

So, any guesses as for what could be the issue, or if there are any actual issues in play?
