The veteran southpaw came into Friday's outing with three straight solid starts, but control has been an issue for him throughout the season. He has walked 28 batters in just 52 2/3 innings.

De La Rosa has been solid in two starts since suffering a cut on his pitching hand, but those are the only two starts he has made since May 21. If he manages to stay on schedule, he'll face the Marlins in Miami next.
