Jorge De La Rosa earned his fourth consecutive win Saturday, holding the Diamondbacks to one run over six innings.
It wasn't De La Rosa's most dominant start, as he gave up six hits while walking five, but he minimized the damage en route to his fifth win of the year. He hasn't lost a decision since May 24, and the southpaw now has a 1.80 ERA since that last loss. De La Rosa will try to keep the winning streak going Friday against the Dodgers. Jun 25 - 10:12 PM

Jorge De La Rosa allowed three runs over six innings in a win over the Marlins on Monday.

De La Rosa gave up five hits, including three home runs, while walking two on the evening. The win was his third straight, pulling his record even at 4-4 on the year. The southpaw owns an unsightly 7.17 ERA colored by some early struggles, and he'll continue working on that earned run average Saturday against the Diamondbacks.

Jorge De La Rosa pitched five scoreless innings in Tuesday's win over the Yankees.

It's hard to believe that the game ended 13-10, as De La Rosa stifled the Yankees' offense for five innings before they got to the bullpen in the late innings. The southpaw yielded just three hits and two walks while throwing 90 pitches. The win moved him to 3-4 with a 7.61 ERA and 1.69 WHIP through 36 2/3 innings. Now that he's back in the Rockies' rotation, De La Rosa will next square off with the Marlins on Monday.

Jorge De La Rosa will rejoin the Rockies' rotation on Tuesday against the Yankees.

De La Rosa was demoted to the bullpen after putting up an 11.41 ERA through six starts. He got it together in relief with eight frames of one-run ball, including four perfect innings in his last appearance. De La Rosa shouldn't be on fantasy teams.

Rockies manager Walt Weiss said that Jorge De La Rosa will be moved to the bullpen for the time being.

This shouldn't be considered a huge surprise. De La Rosa was rocked for seven runs over 3 1/3 innings against the Red Sox on Tuesday and now holds an 11.41 ERA through six starts this season. He missed almost a month with a strained left groin suffered in late April, but was struggling even before the injury. With De La Rosa shifting to the bullpen, Chris Rusin will join the rotation.
May 25 - 5:18 PM

Jorge De La Rosa was knocked around for seven runs over just 3 1/3 innings against the Red Sox on Tuesday.

It's not exactly the return from the disabled list that De La Rosa pictured, but unfortunately it was a pretty predictable outcome. The veteran left-hander yielded nine hits, walked three and hit a batter. De La Rosa's ERA in six starts sits at 11.41, and he's pitched five innings in just one of those outings. We'll see how many more times the Rockies run him out there, but for now he's in line to face the Giants this weekend at Coors.
May 24 - 11:23 PM

Rockies activated LHP Jorge De La Rosa from the 15-day disabled list.

De La Rosa will return to the Rockies' starting rotation Tuesday night at Fenway Park after missing the last four weeks with a strained left groin. The veteran southpaw had a 10.18 ERA and 2.07 WHIP over his first five appearances this season and makes for an awful fantasy streaming option against the dangerous Boston offense.
May 24 - 4:37 PM

Jorge De La Rosa will be activated from the disabled list and rejoin the Rockies starting rotation on Tuesday.

The Rockies have been without their ace since a left groin strain sidelined the veteran southpaw last month. Before he went on the shelf, he posted a 10.18 ERA, 2.07 WHIP and 28/12 K/BB ratio over 20 1/3 innings in his five starts.
May 21 - 2:21 PM

Jorge De La Rosa (groin) allowed two runs over four innings Monday in a minor league rehab start with Triple-A Albuquerque.

De La Rosa, who landed on the DL with a left groin strain late last month, allowed three hits and walked three while striking out three. He threw 43 out of 74 pitches for strikes. The southpaw is expected to make one more rehab start before coming off the DL.
May 9 - 7:14 PM

Jorge De La Rosa (groin) will throw a bullpen Friday at the team's spring training facility in Scottsdale, Arizona.

If that goes well, he'll begin a rehab assignment on Monday. In addition to his groin issue, De La Rosa has also struggled with his velocity. He's averaged just 90.1 mph on his fastball this season. The left-hander is 1-3 this year with a miserable 10.18 ERA.
May 5 - 11:26 PM

Rockies placed LHP Jorge De La Rosa on the 15-day disabled list with a left groin strain.

De La Rosa was lifted after three innings in Tuesday's contest with the Pirates. Manager Walt Weiss indicated that the southpaw strained his groin while running out a ground ball. 2016 has been a struggle for De La Rosa in the early going. He has failed to pitch more than five innings in four of his first five starts and holds a bloated 10.18 ERA. Eddie Butler will fill his place in the rotation until he is healthy enough to return.

Jorge De La Rosa is likely to be placed on the 15-day disabled list with a left groin strain.

The injury forced him from his start Tuesday night against the Pirates, after he had allowed four runs on three homers in just three innings. De La Rosa is sitting on a 1-3 record and 10.18 ERA through five starts this season, four of them shorter than five innings. Eddie Butler is expected to join the Rockies' rotation in his place and figures to get an extended look.
Apr 27 - 1:42 PM

Jorge De La Rosa was removed after three innings Tuesday, having allowed four runs -- including three homers -- in a loss to the Pirates.

During an in-game interview, Rockies manager Walt Weiss said De La Rosa tweaked his groin running out a ground ball, leading to his exit. It certainly could have been blamed on ineffectiveness as well, as three of the five Pirates hits against him left the yard. De La Rosa also walked three while striking out five. His 10.18 ERA and 2.07 WHIP tell the story of what has been a miserable April for the southpaw. It may not get much better Sunday when De La Rosa and the Rox travel to Arizona to take on the Diamondbacks.
Apr 27 - 12:19 AM

Jorge De La Rosa could be scratched from Monday's scheduled start against the Pirates due to illness.

De La Rosa has been under the weather, although he was able to throw a bullpen session over the weekend. If he's unable to go Monday, Chris Rusin will get the ball.
Apr 24 - 1:53 PM

Jorge De La Rosa was removed after allowing four runs on six hits over two-plus innings in Tuesday's loss to the Reds.

De La Rosa was singled to death in a four-run second inning, with only Billy Hamilton's two-run double going for extra bases. He came back out for the third but a double and a walk ended his evening. He did strike out five, but it just wasn't his night. It hasn't necessarily been his year to this point, either, as the southpaw now owns a 9.87 ERA and 1.96 WHIP through four starts. He'll try to right the ship Monday against guys who know a thing or two about ships, the Pirates.
