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

Date:

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.
Apr 10 - 8:46 AM

Jorge De La Rosa (groin) is set to make a minor league rehab start Thursday at Triple-A Albuquerque.

De La Rosa will throw 65-75 pitches in the outing. There's a chance he could make his 2015 regular-season debut on April 14 against the Giants, but the Rockies might want to stretch him out a little further with a second rehab game. De La Rosa was bothered by groin discomfort throughout spring training.
Apr 6 - 11:23 AM

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

De La Rosa faced live hitters this weekend for the first time since his latest setback and appears to be on track to join the Rockies' rotation near the end of April. Kyle Kendrick is starting on Opening Day.
Apr 5 - 6:30 PM

Jorge De La Rosa (groin) will throw live batting practice on Sunday.

It will be his first time facing hitters since he suffered a setback with his groin injury on March 20. De La Rosa is coming along nicely in his recovery but isn't expected to be ready on April 14 as previously hoped. He seems likely to return before the end of the month, though.
Apr 5 - 2:36 PM

Jorge De La Rosa (groin) has yet to pitch off a mound and will still need to pitch in extended spring training games before returning to the rotation.

Rockies manager Walt Weiss said Friday that he was "encouraged" by the veteran left-hander's progress, but it's difficult to envision him returning to start on April 14 as currently scheduled. A late-April return seems like the most likely scenario at this point. Christian Bergman is likely to fill in as the fifth starter until De La Rosa is ready.
Apr 3 - 9:53 PM

Jorge De La Rosa (groin) threw a 30-pitch bullpen session on Wednesday.

De La Rosa had been shut down after aggravating a left groin injury two weeks ago. The left-hander is currently on pace to make his season debut on April 14, but he'll have to continue to progress without any setbacks. De La Rosa would have opened the season as the Rockies' No. 1 starter had he been healthy.
Apr 2 - 9:26 PM

Rockies manager Walt Weiss said Tuesday that Jorge De La Rosa (groin) is "pretty much shut down."

De La Rosa left a start last Friday after aggravating his left groin injury and is limited to playing catch right now. The Rockies were hopeful that the southpaw would be able to start the home opener on April 10, but it's now likely that he'll begin the season on the disabled list.

An MRI taken Monday on Jorge De La Rosa's groin showed no major structural damage.

De La Rosa will play catch Monday and may pitch in a game Wednesday. The veteran left-hander is penciled in for the Rockies' home opener, but this groin tightness is threatening to derail that schedule.
Mar 23 - 12:20 PM

The Rockies will wait until Monday to decide if Jorge De La Rosa (groin) will make his next Cactus League start.

The team is much more concerned with having the veteran southpaw healthy and ready for the start of the regular season than they are about lining him up for the home opener. They'll take every necessary precaution to ensure he's ready.
Mar 21 - 12:14 PM

Jorge De La Rosa left Friday's appearance with an aggravation of his left groin injury.

The Rockies are only calling it tightness for now, but De La Rosa seems likely to be sent for an exam. The 2 1/3 innings the left-hander threw Friday are his only official frames this spring, so it seems unlikely that he'll be ready for his first start of the season. De La Rosa had been scheduled to get the ball in the Rockies' home opener on April 10.
