The Rockies could have a few other pitchers on the All-Star team.
2018 was Kyle Freeland’s best season but he was a snub for the 2018 All-Star team. In the first half of the season, he went 8-6 with an ERA of 3.11 with an opponent slash-line of .238/.302/.385 in 19 starts.
He was even better in the second half, though, as he went 9-1 with a 2.49 ERA in 14 starts, which was enough to earn the start for the Rockies in the Wild Card Game against the Cubs. He also ended up coming in 4th in the NL Cy Young Award voting.
He took a giant leap backwards in 2019 and 2020, he rebounded but wasn’t quite as good as he was in 2018. If he can get closer to what he was in 2018, he could very easily be an All-Star.
Antonio Senzatela also had his best season in 2020, as he had a 5-3 record with a 3.44 ERA. He also dropped his walk rate by nearly 50 percent.
If he can have that type of season for the Rockies again in 2021, he could also be an All-Star.
