SCOTTSDALE — Colorado Rockies left-hander Kyle Freeland is expected to miss at least a month with a strained pitching shoulder.

The Rockies were fearing even worse news after Freeland bent down following a pitch in an exhibition game and grabbed his shoulder.

But an MRI revealed nothing more than a strain.

He will start the season on the injured list.

The candidates to hold his place in the rotation are Chi Chi González, Dereck Rodríguez and Ryan Rolison.
