The Colorado Rockies placed left-hander Kyle Freeland on the 10-day injured list Thursday, marking the second straight day that the team shuffled a starting pitcher to the sideline.

Right-hander Jon Gray was placed on the 60-day injured list Wednesday with a fractured left foot. He is expected to miss the rest of the season.

Freeland, 26, landed on the IL with a left groin strain, retroactive to Wednesday.

Freeland is 3-11 with a 6.98 ERA in 20 starts this season. The Denver native owns a 31-29 mark with a 4.17 ERA in 86 career appearances (81 starts), all with the Rockies.

In a corresponding move, the Rockies recalled right-hander Wes Parsons from Triple-A Albuquerque. The team claimed Parsons on waivers earlier in the week after the Atlanta Braves designated him for assignment.

Parsons, 26, posted a 1-2 record with a 3.52 ERA in 17 relief appearances with the Braves this season.
