Jorge De La Rosa held the Orioles to two runs -- one earned -- over 6 1/3 innings Monday but took a no-decision.
De La Rosa walked three, but he managed to hold the O's to just four hits. He departed with a 2-1 lead but Adam Ottavino allowed an RBI groundout to the first batter he faced. De La Rosa was knocked around in his previous outing but has mostly been very good since rejoining the rotation. He'll face the Mets on the road this weekend. Jul 25 - 10:40 PM

Jorge De La Rosa was horrendous in Wednesday's loss to the Rays, yielding nine runs (seven earned) on 11 hits over four innings.

De La Rosa held a 2-1 lead entering the third inning, but the Rays would erase that with three runs in the frame before jumping De La Rosa for five more in the fourth. He struck out just one on the afternoon. The ugly performance jumped his ERA from an already-tough 5.50 to a downright sad 6.07. The veteran southpaw also holds a 1.67 WHIP. He will try to rebound from this disaster when he hits the road for a date with the Orioles next time out.

Jorge De La Rosa held the Braves to two runs in six innings in the Rockies' 11-2 victory on Friday night.

He gave up eight hits, walked three and struck out only two. The win evened his record at 6-6 with a 5.50 ERA. The 13-year veteran has a history of pitching about as well as can be expected from a guy playing half his games at Coors Field. This year he has been worse than usual but it is reasonable to expect some degree of a return to form in the second half. If you are desperate for pitching in an NL-only league you could probably do worse.

Jorge De La Rosa took a tough loss after allowing two runs in seven innings Friday against the Dodgers.

De La Rosa had won all three of his starts since being moved back into the rotation (he also earned a win in his final relief appearance). He could have won tonight, too, but the Rockies just didn't get anything going against Bud Norris.
Jul 2 - 1:53 AM

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.

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.
Jun 20 - 10:52 PM

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.
Jun 15 - 12:30 AM

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.

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.
