Rockies Select Denver Native Freeland In The MLB Draft

DENVER (CBS/AP) – Colorado selected LHP Kyle Freeland with the No. 8 pick on Thursday in the Major League Baseball draft.

Freeland grew up in Denver.

Position: LHP
School: Evansville
Height: 6-3
Weight: 185
College class: junior

He was was Missouri Valley Conference pitcher of year and had eye-popping season going 10-2 with 1.90 ERA and 128 Ks and just 13 BBs in breakout season for Purple Aces.

Other stats:

– Had elbow surgery as HS freshman — and questions arose again during draft process.

– Fastball sits in low- to mid-90s and has hard slider that can make hitters look silly at times.

– Low arm angle and some kinks in delivery, but should remain starter rather than reliever.
