Jorge De La Rosa was scratched from Tuesday's start against the Reds after suffering a cut on his pitching hand.

Thomas Harding of MLB.com writes that the cut developed before his most recent start. No word on how long he'll be sidelined. The Rockies have called up Chris Rusin to start in his place.
May 26 - 3:25 PM

Jorge De La Rosa yielded three runs over 4 1/3 innings in a no-decision against the Phillies on Thursday.

De La Rosa had his best start of the season last time out before leaving with a minor groin injury, but he followed it up with yet another poor outing. The veteran southpaw surrendered five hits and three walks, including a solo homer to Ryan Howard. He has thrown five innings or fewer in five out of his six starts this season and now owns a brutal 6.51 ERA. He'll get the Reds in Cincinnati next time out.
May 21 - 6:43 PM

Jorge De La Rosa (groin) has been cleared to make his scheduled start on Thursday versus the Phillies.

De La Rosa had to leave his last outing after tweaking his left groin, but he threw on Tuesday with no issues. The lefty shut the Dodgers out over 7 1/3 innings in his last start before exiting.
May 19 - 10:33 PM

Jorge De La Rosa (groin) did some jogging prior to Sunday's game.

De La Rosa tweaking his nagging left groin injury during Saturday's start. It sounds like he'll be fine for his next outing, but check back later in the week just to be safe.
May 17 - 2:31 PM

Jorge De La Rosa fired 7 1/3 shutout innings Saturday in the Rockies' 7-1 victory over the Dodgers.

It was a surprising performance from De La Rosa, who entered the outing with a brutal 9.56 ERA and 2.19 WHIP but carved his way through a dangerous Dodgers lineup with ease. The left-hander allowed only two hits, struck out three, and didn't walk a batter. He'll try to keep it rolling next week in a start at Coors Field against the Phillies.
May 17 - 12:19 AM

Jorge De La Rosa couldn't find the strike zone on Sunday, walking six and allowing five runs in just four innings against the Dodgers.

De La Rosa threw just 43 of his 80 pitches for strikes. He struck out four and allowed five hits. The big inning came in the fifth, when De La Rosa walked three straight before allowing a bases-loaded double to Adrian Gonzalez that cleared the bases. De La Rosa was pulled after the Gonzalez hit. This season, he has a cringe-inducing 9.56 ERA and a 2.19 WHIP. Avoid at all costs. Unfortunately for De La Rosa, he's set to face the Dodgers again in his next start.
May 10 - 8:12 PM

Tuesday's contest between the Rockies and Diamondbacks has been postponed due to rain.

This is the second game in a row that's been washed out in the series. The two teams will attempt to make up the contest on Wednesday as part of a double-header, with the first game scheduled for 3:10 ET and the second to follow 20-30 minutes after its conclusion.
May 5 - 7:49 PM

Jorge De La Rosa allowed three earned runs over five innings Saturday in a loss to the Padres.

De La Rosa struck out nine San Diego batters, but he walked three and gave up five hits -- two of which were doubles. The left-hander has now had two bad starts and one good start since debuting on April 20. He'll carry an 0-2 record, 9.00 ERA, and 2.00 WHIP into his next scheduled outing at home against the Dodgers.
May 3 - 12:54 AM

Jorge De La Rosa struck out seven Giants on Saturday, allowing two runs on four hits.

De La Rosa missed most of April with a groin injury. His first start, on April 20th against the Padres, was a nine-run disaster, but the pitcher showed improvement on Saturday. De La Rosa put up respectable numbers for the Rockies last season, posting a 4.10 ERA and a 1.24 WHIP over 184 1/3 innings. He'll try to give up fewer than nine runs when he faces the Padres again in his next start.
Apr 26 - 12:09 AM

Jorge De La Rosa's season debut didn't go well, as the lefty was hammered for nine runs (seven earned) in two innings in a loss to the Padres on Monday.

De La Rosa missed the first two weeks of the season with a groin injury. The Padres had no issues squaring him up, as the lefty yielded nine hits and a walk while striking out three. The nine runs were split up with five in the first inning and four in the second. De La Rosa will try to bounce back in his next start at home against the Giants.
Apr 20 - 11:57 PM

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

He'll make his season debut on Monday against the Padres after getting a late start to the season due to a groin ailment. De La Rosa has fared pretty well in his career at Coors Field (3.98 ERA), but he's a risky play in this one against a good Padres lineup.
Apr 20 - 5:48 PM

Jorge De La Rosa (groin) will make his 2015 season debut on Monday night versus the Padres.

De La Rosa missed the first two weeks of the regular season with a groin injury that bothered him throughout spring training. The 34-year-old left-hander pitched pretty well in a pair of minor league rehab starts, but he's not a great fantasy bet against a good Padres offense Monday at Coors Field. De La Rosa posted a 4.10 ERA, 1.24 WHIP, and 139/67 K/BB ratio in 184 1/3 innings last season for Colorado.

Jorge De La Rosa (groin) will make another rehab start Tuesday for Triple-A Albuquerque.

De La Rosa only made it four innings in his rehab debut Thursday at Albuquerque and the Rockies want him to get stretched out a little further before they ask him to face major league hitters. "They want to make sure I'm good," the left-hander said Saturday. "I didn't pitch very much in spring."

Jorge De La Rosa (groin) allowed one run over four innings in a rehab start with Triple-A Albuquerque on Thursday.

He yielded four hits -- including a home run -- while walking three and striking out a pair. The most important thing to note was De La Rosa's pitch count, which only got up to 57. There's a chance the Rockies might think that's enough that they'll start the lefty on April 14 against the Giants, but they could also decide to stretch him out more.
