Freeland put in a sub-par performance in his last outing as he was tagged with his sixth loss of the season to the Arizona Diamondbacks. He went six innings giving up four hits, four earned runs and one home run while striking out eight and walking four.
The numbers look solid for Freeland who owns an 8.04 K/9, 2.99 BB/9, 1.15 HR/9, 3.68 ERA and 3.99 FIP. His 48.4% GB% is down from his career average of 52.2%, which is an avenue that can help any pitcher pitching in Colorado, but despite the drop, he has increased his K/9 from his career average of 6.80 K/9.
Colorado has been slumping hard in the past week only winning one of their six contests. During that span their lineup is slashing .255/.299/.412 to go with 18 extra-base hits and 28 RBI.
Minor put in a quality start in his last outing, but received the no-decision in a 3-4 loss to the Houston Astros. He went six innings giving up six hits, three earned runs, and one home run while striking out four and walking one.
In 12 starts Minor has an okay strikeout (7.71 K/9) to walk (2.07 BB/9) rate, but he has struggled with the long ball owning a 1.65 HR/9. The end result has been a high 5.65 ERA, but if he can improve his 66.9% LOB%, then the lefty could see he ERA drop to around his 4.73 FIP.
Texas continues their losing ways as they have gone 0-5 in the last week. During that span their lineup is slashing .239/.357/.318 to go with 10 extra-base hits and 18 RBI.

Free Colorado Rockies vs. Texas Rangers MLB Prediction: Colorado edges out Texas on the road
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Rockies OVER Team Total
Freeland owns a 4.97 ERA in the month of June, so its hard to trust him on the road. Colorado also doesn’t hit well on the road, but they will be in a hitter-friendly ball park while their lineup hits way better against lefties. I’ll be backing Colorado to eclipse their team run total for the game.
