DENVER The latest update in an already frustrating season for pitcher Kyle Freeland lands the Denver native back on the IR.

The Rockies announced the move Thursday. Freeland is being sent back with a groin sprain. The Rockies also recalled Wes Parsons from Triple-A Albuquerque.

The Rockies opened a series in St. Louis Thursday night as well. They dropped game one to the Cardinals, 6-5.
