Rockies starter goes down in agony with injury
Colorado Rockies trainers attend to injured starter Kyle Freeland Robert Edwards-USA TODAY Sports

Kyle Freeland had to be helped off the field after suffering a shoulder injury during Sunday’s game between his Colorado Rockies and the San Francisco Giants at Oracle Park.

Freeland was pitching well and had only allowed one run as of the seventh inning. His Rockies were down 1-0 in the bottom of the frame with one out, a runner on first and Brett Wisely at the plate. Wisely bunted between first and second and Freeland went to field the ball. He went to the ground to for the play and after grabbing the ball, he tried to push himself up before experiencing serious pain in his right shoulder.

Wisely was able to reach base as Freeland struggled with what appeared to be a shoulder injury.

The southpaw was helped off the field by team trainers.

Freeland was subsequently relieved by Justin Lawrence, who finished out the 1-0 defeat.

Adding insult to the injury, Freeland took the loss and dropped to 4-10 with a 4.72 ERA. Rockies fans are awaiting further news regarding the pitcher’s status.
