The Colorado Rockies have reinstated left-handed pitcher Kyle Freeland from the 10-day disabled list and have optioned fellow left-hander Zac Rosscup to Triple-A Albuquerque, the team announced Tuesday. Freeland was dealing with a left groin strain. The 24-year-old is in his first major league season. He has pitched in 22 games, making 21 starts. Over 121.2 innings of work, Freeland has gone 11-7 while pitching to the tune of a 3.70 ERA. He has allowed 125 hits while striking out 77 batters. Freeland, who played his college baseball at the University of Evansville, was originally selected by the Philadelphia Phillies in the 35th round of the 2011 MLB June Amateur Draft. However, he failed to sign, and three years later, he was chosen by the Rockies in the first round (eighth pick overall) of the draft.
