Jorge De La Rosa (Achilles) is expected to be cleared to throw a bullpen session soon.

De La Rosa was just placed on the disabled list over the weekend with a right Achilles tendon bursitis, but obviously the ailment wasn't serious. It would appear he'd have a shot to return when eligible.

Diamondbacks placed LHP Jorge De La Rosa on the 10-day disabled list with a right Achilles tendon bursitis.

De La Rosa tweaked his Achilles in the ninth inning of Friday's game, precipitating his exit and Saturday's move. He's been OK in relief for the D'backs this year, posting a 3.54 ERA over 27 games. Jake Barrett was recalled to take his spot in the bullpen.
Jun 2 - 6:24 PM

Diamondbacks purchased the contract of LHP Jorge De La Rosa.

The veteran southpaw signed a minor league deal over the winter and showed enough in Cactus League play to secure a spot in the Opening Day bullpen. He'll function in middle relief.
Mar 25 - 6:59 PM

Diamondbacks re-signed LHP Jorge De La Rosa to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

De La Rosa held a 4.21 ERA and 45/21 K/BB ratio over 51 1/3 innings for the Diamondbacks last season in his first year as a full-time reliever. The 36-year-old had to settle for a minor league deal for the second straight winter but should again have a good shot to break camp with the big club.
Feb 16 - 10:20 AM

Jorge De La Rosa has made the Diamondbacks' Opening Day roster.

De La Rosa didn't have a particularly strong spring (5.63 ERA in eight Cactus League outings) but the D'Backs are hoping he still has some juice left as a middle reliever/lefty specialist. Chase Field isn't a pitcher's park by any stretch, but it's certainly a step up from Coors Field, where De La Rosa spent his previous nine seasons.

Diamondbacks signed LHP Jorge De La Rosa to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic says that De La Rosa will make $2.25 million if in the majors and will compete for a spot in the D'Backs Opening Day bullpen. Just 12 of the left-hander's 235 appearances since 2007 have come as a reliever, but it's probably De La Rosa's best role at this point. The southpaw put up a 5.51 ERA across 134 innings for the Rockies last season and will turn 36 in April.

Jorge De La Rosa is likely to decide on a new club early next week, per Chris Cotillo of SB Nation.

De La Rosa was said to be drawing free agent interest from the Pirates back in early December, but his market has been very quiet since then. The veteran left-hander posted an ugly 5.51 ERA and 108/63 K/BB ratio across 134 innings with the Rockies in 2016. He has stated that he is open to working as a multi-inning reliever.
Thu, Feb 9, 2017 11:23:00 AM

Rob Biertempfel of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports that the Pirates have checked on free agents Jorge De La Rosa and Doug Fister.

Biertempfel writes that the Pirates were simply doing their due diligence and nothing appears to be imminent with either pitcher. De La Rosa posted a 5.51 ERA and 108/63 K/BB ratio over 134 innings with the Rockies in 2016 and has expressed a willingness to potentially work as a multi-inning reliever. Fister, who turns 33 in February, is coming off a 4.64 ERA over 32 starts with the Astros.

According to Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports, Jorge De La Rosa has been informing interested teams that he's willing to work out of the bullpen as a multi-inning reliever.

De La Rosa hasn't been a popular name in the early free agent market, but could prove to be useful in a swing role with the ability to work multiple innings or get left-handers out. The 35-year-old registered a 5.51 ERA, 1.64 WHIP and 108/63 K/BB ratio across 134 frames with the Rockies in 2016.

Jorge De La Rosa yielded eight runs -- seven earned -- over 4 2/3 innings in Tuesday's loss to the Cardinals.

A pair of homers were among the Cardinals' seven hits, and the southpaw also walked three. On the plus side, he struck out eight batters, tying a season high. But that's where the good news stops for the 35-year-old, who has now allowed five or more runs in three straight starts. He'll carry a 5.51 ERA and 1.64 WHIP into Sunday's start at the Dodgers.

Rockies manager Walt Weiss said Jorge De La Rosa will be making his final start of the season on Tuesday night against the visiting Cardinals.

There's no injury-related reasoning behind the early shutdown, but it's notable because De La Rosa is scheduled to become a free agent this fall. He is likely making his final appearance in a Rockies uniform after a nine-year run with the club. The veteran left-hander will turn 36 years old next April and will likely have to settle for a one-year deal on the open market. He's sporting a 5.22 ERA through 129 1/3 innings in 2016.

Jorge De La Rosa proved ineffective in Tuesday's loss to the Diamondbacks, yielding six runs (five earned) on eight hits over 3 1/3 innings.

The Rockies handed De La Rosa a 3-0 lead in the top of the first inning, but he would blow that almost immediately, surrendering four runs in the bottom of the frame. Two more runs in the fourth spelled his exit. The veteran southpaw will carry a rough 5.22 ERA and 1.62 WHIP into a home start against the Cardinals next time he toes the rubber. Look elsewhere for fantasy glory.

Jorge De La Rosa racked up eight strikeouts over five innings of three-run ball in a no-decision against the Nationals on Saturday.

De La Rosa gave up eight hits on the afternoon while walking one. He also contributed with his bat, delivering an RBI single in the fourth inning that increased the Rockies' lead to 3-0. The veteran southpaw has struggled for most of the season, compiling a 5.09 ERA, 1.54 WHIP and 90/51 K/BB ratio over 115 frames. He'll do battle against the Diamondbacks his next time out at home on Friday.

Jorge De La Rosa held the Cubs to two earned runs over eight innings Sunday for his eighth win.

De La Rosa gave up two Addison Russell homers, but they were both solo shots. He yielded only two other hits and one walk while striking out six. De La Rosa will carry an 8-7 record and 5.07 ERA into his next start on the road against the Nationals.
