Make no mistake about it, Kyle Freeland’s return to his 2018 levels (or even close to them) will be a huge boost for the Rockies. A change in his delivery is expected to bring good results, and Freeland has the confidence in better things in 2020.
Freeland said that he turned the page on his disappointing 2019 season quickly but isn’t forgetting about it.
"“It’s something that I think should stick with me for the rest of my career,” Freeland said. “It should stick with me and I should be aware of it just because it was a serious rut that I was in and one of the lowest lows I’ve ever been in my life. And it’s something that I came out on the other side.”"
And that “other side” is where Freeland is now and where Black expects him to be in 2020.
"“The talent. His stuff. How he’s wired and his desire,” Black said when asked about what will help Freeland rebound this season. “This past season was a learning experience for him. I think it’s just lined up for him to bounce back.”"
