Rubby De La Rosa went eight scoreless innings Saturday in the Diamondbacks' 2-0 blanking of the Brewers.

Diamondbacks closer Brad Ziegler finished out the combined shutout with a scoreless ninth to earn his 16th save of the season. De La Rosa was spectacular, allowing only four hits and two walks while whiffing six. He was also sharp Monday against the Marlins and remains a decent fantasy streamer for mixed leaguers. A meeting with the Astros is next.

Rubby De La Rosa delivered seven innings of one-run ball to beat the Marlins on Monday.

It wasn't without difficulty, as De La Rosa walked five along with allowing five hits while only striking out one. But the Marlins just weren't able to capitalize against the right-hander, who badly needed a strong outing. He carries a 4.83 ERA, a 1.32 WHIP, and a 100/34 K/BB ratio in 117 1/3 innings. De La Rosa will face the Brewers at home the next time he takes the mound.
Jul 21 - 12:41 AM

Rubby De La Rosa lasted only 3 2/3 innings, allowing four runs en route to a loss versus the Mets on Sunday.

The right-hander allowed 10 base runners: eight on hits and two on walks while striking out two. Three of the hits were home runs, two of which were hit by Kirk Nieuwenhuis. Daniel Murphy had the other. De La Rosa heads into the All-Star break with a disappointing 5.06 ERA, 1.31 WHIP, and 99/29 K/BB ratio in 110 1/3 innings. He'll face the Marlins at home in his next start.
Jul 12 - 4:11 PM

Rubby De La Rosa struggled in Sunday's loss to the Rockies, allowing six runs on eight hits over five-plus innings.

De La Rosa was bit by the home run bug, serving up a three-run shot to Troy Tulowitzki in the first inning and a two-run bomb to Carlos Gonzalez in the sixth. The rough start pushed an already lackluster ERA from 4.60 to 4.89. In addition, De La Rosa holds a 1.27 WHIP and 97/27 K/BB ratio over 106 2/3 innings. The strikeouts are there, and De La Rosa had pitched well in his previous four starts, but these kinds of big letdowns are ERA killers. He'll try to get back on the right track when he takes on the Mets at Citi Field in the Diamondbacks' final game before the All-Star Break.
Jul 5 - 7:52 PM

Rubby De La Rosa scattered two runs in 5 2/3 innings, but got a no-decision in Tuesday's 10-inning loss versus the Dodgers.

Both runs scored on a Yasmany Tomas home run in the second inning. De La Rosa allowed six hits and a walk overall while striking out seven. He's put together four terrific starts in a row now but still has a mediocre 4.60 ERA with a 1.24 WHIP and a 94/26 K/BB ratio in 101 2/3 innings. De La Rosa will look to keep it going when he faces the Rockies at home in his next start.
Jul 1 - 1:58 AM

Rubby De La Rosa spun seven innings of one-run ball Thursday in a no-decision against the Rockies.

De La Rosa left with the lead, but the Diamondbacks' bullpen quickly coughed it up in the eighth inning. Still, it was a very impressive outing at a tough place to pitch. De La Rosa gave up just five hits and one walk while striking out five, with the only damage coming on a solo homer from Nolan Arenado in the sixth. The 26-year-old has allowed just two earned runs in 22 innings over his last three starts, improving his ERA from 5.84 to 4.69 in the process. He'll try to keep it going against the Dodgers next week at home.
Jun 25 - 7:02 PM

Rubby De La Rosa yielded two runs (one earned) over seven-plus innings Friday in a 4-2 win over the Padres.

De La Rosa had a bases-loaded walk in the fifth inning and the second run scored after Daniel Hudson replaced him following back-to-back errors. He fanned six and walked three for his sixth win of the season. After back-to-back awful starts, De La Rosa has now turned in consecutive strong effort to bring his ERA down to 4.96 for the year. He faces a challenging matchup next time out against the Rockies on the road.
Jun 20 - 2:59 PM

Rubby De La Rosa put in a nice rebound start in Sunday's 4-0 win over the Giants, tossing eight innings of shutout ball.

De La Rosa struck out six and walked two. He had allowed 16 runs in his last 10 innings, but showed a mental toughness to keep the rough patch from turning into a downward spiral of doom. Still, the poor stretch has taken its toll on his numbers. He'll bring a 5.27 ERA, 1.28 WHIP and 77/21 K/BB ratio over 82 innings into a home start against the Padres next time he toes the rubber.
Jun 14 - 7:29 PM

Rubby De La Rosa took a beating against the Dodgers in Monday's loss, yielding nine runs in five innings of work.

Six of the runs came on two three-run home runs: by Jimmy Rollins in the fourth inning and Andre Ethier in the fifth. The right-hander allowed 10 hits overall along with a walk while striking out four. It's just the latest shellacking in a very disappointing season for De La Rosa, now sitting on a 5.84 ERA with a 1.28 WHIP and a 71/19 K/BB ratio over 74 innings. He will try to get back on track over the weekend against the Giants in San Francisco.
Jun 9 - 12:57 AM

Rubby De La Rosa was battered by the Braves on Wednesday, allowing seven runs over five innings but escaping with a no-decision.

The Diamondbacks offense bailed out the right-hander, who gave up two home runs among his nine hits allowed. On the bright side, De La Rosa struck out eight in the effort. He's now failed to factor in the decision in each of his last four starts, watching his ERA rise to 5.09 with Wednesday's outing. He throws hard but is prone to some hard contact as well, and it won't get any easier for De La Rosa when he takes on the Dodgers in Los Angeles on Monday.
Jun 3 - 7:03 PM

Rubby De La Rosa gave up four runs over five innings in a no-decision against the Brewers on Friday.

Most of the damage came on the home run ball, as De La Rosa served up a leadoff blast to Carlos Gomez in the first before Adam Lind connected for a two-run shot in the third. De La Rosa struck out four and walked a pair in the no-decision and now has a 4.50 ERA through 10 starts. He's been prone to the home run ball, giving up 10 of them in 64 innings, but his 59/16 K/BB ratio hints at some upside.
May 30 - 12:14 AM

Rubby De La Rosa allowed four earned runs over six innings Saturday in the Diamondbacks' loss to the Cubs.

De La Rosa appeared headed for another good outing before the top of the fifth inning, when he hit Kris Bryant with the bases loaded and then Anthony Rizzo followed with a bases-clearing three-run double. De La Rosa yielded just four hits in all and struck out eight. The 26-year-old right-hander has emerged as a solid mixed-league starter and has a favorable matchup next week in Milwaukee.
May 24 - 1:29 AM

Rubby De La Rosa limited the Marlins to two runs over nine innings but got a no-decision as the D'Backs needed 13 innings to dispose of the opposition.

De La Rosa was working on a shutout until he hung a breaking ball to J.T. Realmuto in the seventh inning, resulting in a game-tying two-run home run. It was one of only six hits the right-hander allowed while walking none and striking out five. Aside from his mediocre start to open the season, De La Rosa has been rather effective. He currently carries a 4.08 ERA, a 1.11 WHIP, and a 47/12 K/BB ratio in 53 innings. His next outing will come at Wrigley Field against the Cubs.
May 18 - 10:40 PM

Rubby De La Rosa allowed four runs in seven innings, earning the win as the Diamondbacks routed the Nationals 14-6 on Tuesday.

The Diamondbacks' offense staked De La Rosa to an 8-2 lead after four innings and continued to pour on the runs, all but guaranteeing him the win. The right-hander allowed eight hits and a pair of walks while striking out four. De La Rosa has shown good stuff at times, but hasn't put it together in back-to-back starts yet. He has a 4.50 ERA with a 1.20 WHIP and a 42/12 K/BB ratio in 44 innings. He'll face the Marlins in Miami next.
