Aug 24 - 10:16 PM

Jorge De La Rosa pitched decently in a no-decision against the Nationals on Friday, surrendering four runs (three earned) on six hits over his six frames.

The veteran southpaw walked two and struck out one on the night. It has been a rough season for De La Rosa, who will look to improve upon a troublesome 4.85 ERA and 1.40 WHIP when he takes on the Mets in New York on Wednesday.
Aug 7 - 10:33 PM

Jorge De La Rosa pitched well in Saturday's win over the Cardinals, yielding two runs on seven hits over 6 2/3 innings.

He needed a start like this, as he had allowed six runs in each of his last two outings. De La Rosa holds a 4.87 ERA, 1.41 WHIP and 92/46 K/BB ratio in 97 innings. Up next on the docket, a road start against the Nationals.

Jorge De La Rosa allowed six runs in 3 2/3 innings in a no-decision as the Rockies were defeated by the Cubs on Monday.

All six runs came across in the fourth inning on two walks, four singles, and a double. They accounted for all seven base runners De La Rosa allowed while striking out two. He started to pitch better in late June through mid-July, but has allowed six runs in back-to-back outings. He has a 5.03 ERA on the year with a 1.43 WHIP and an 88/46 K/BB ratio over 90 1/3 innings. De La Rosa has a tough matchup ahead of him, as he'll face the Cardinals in St. Louis over the weekend.
Jul 27 - 11:51 PM

Jorge De La Rosa was crushed by the Rangers on Wednesday afternoon, allowing six runs on five hits over six innings.

The Rangers put up five runs in the first two innings on De La Rosa, but he settled in after the rough start, allowing only one more run for the remainder of his time on the mound. He struck out eight and walked two in the contest. While he's striking out batters at a nice clip, the consistency simply hasn't been there on other fronts. De La Rosa will take a 4.62 ERA, 1.41 WHIP and 86/44 K/BB ratio (over 87 2/3 innings) into his next start, a road outing against the Cubs.
Jul 22 - 7:02 PM

Jorge De La Rosa pitched well in earning a no-decision against the Braves on Saturday, allowing just two runs over six innings.

De La Rosa made two big mistakes on the day to cost himself a possible win. Both left the yard. Juan Uribe took him for a ride with one out in the second inning and Ryan Lavarnway did likewise to lead off the third. De La Rosa's has had his moments this season, but overall is pitching to a somewhat lackluster 4.34 ERA and 1.42 WHIP. He's posting decent strikeout rates, at least, and holds a 73/39 K/BB ratio in 76 2/3 innings. That walk rate, not so hot.
Jul 11 - 8:30 PM

Jorge De La Rosa posted a quality start in Sunday's win over the Diamondbacks, allowing two runs on five hits over six innings.

De La Rosa was facing off with Diamondback starter Rubby De La Rosa. The Rockies' species of De La Rosa far out-pitched the Diamondback species, holding the home team down for just a pair of runs over six innings. Yasmany Tomas accounted for both runs on his line with a solo home run in the second inning and a sacrifice fly in the sixth. For the season, De La Rosa is pitching to a 4.46 ERA, 1.46 WHIP and 66/37 K/BB ratio in 70 2/3 innings. A home start against the Braves finishes out his schedule before the All-Star Break.
Jul 5 - 7:54 PM

Jorge De La Rosa kept the Athletics off the board over seven innings en route to a win on Tuesday.

De La Rosa worked his way around four hits and four walks to keep the A's scoreless. Aside from one poor start against the Brewers, the lefty had a great June, ending the month with a 3.16 ERA across six starts. On the season, he has a 4.59 ERA with a 1.48 WHIP and a 60/35 K/BB ratio in 64 2/3 innings. De La Rosa will start on the road against the Diamondbacks next.
Jul 1 - 1:13 AM

Jun 25 - 4:57 PM

Jorge De La Rosa was tagged for six runs in five innings Friday in a loss to the Brewers.

De La Rosa gave up home runs to Ryan Braun and Aramis Ramirez in the first inning, which set the tone for the night. He allowed a season-high 11 hits in the loss. 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. It's hard to survive in Coors Field that way.
Jun 20 - 12:50 AM

Jorge De La Rosa tossed seven effective innings, giving up just one run, in a win against the Marlins on Sunday.

The run came around in the lefty's final inning on Ichiro Suzuki's pinch-hit RBI single. De La Rosa walked four, but allowed only four hits while striking out four. He has pitched well as of late but has been bothered by a cut on his pitching hand. On the season, De La Rosa has a 4.91 ERA with a 1.41 WHIP, and a 49/25 K/BB ratio over 47 2/3 innings. He'll get the Brewers at home in his next outing.
Jun 14 - 4:41 PM

Jorge De La Rosa pitched well, limiting the Cardinals to two runs over seven innings, but took a no-decision as the Rockies won on Tuesday.

De La Rosa held the Cardinals to three hits and a pair of walks while striking out eight. The Cardinals made those three hits count, though. A leadoff single, a wild pitch, and a one-out single led to a fifth-inning run. In the sixth, the lefty served up a solo home run to Jhonny Peralta. 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.
Jun 10 - 1:04 AM

Jorge De La Rosa's next scheduled start has been pushed back to Tuesday versus the Cardinals.
