It's the first time he's thrown from the bump since being diagnosed with a sprained ulnar collateral ligament. The Diamondbacks are hoping De La Rosa can rejoin their rotation at some point in the second half, but he's still got some work to do. Jul 24 - 9:16 AM

Rubby De La Rosa (elbow) is at least two weeks away from resuming throwing off a mound.

De La Rosa has been playing catch this week, but it will be a little while before he's allowed on the bump. The Diamondbacks are hoping to get him back sometime in August.
Jul 1 - 5:24 PM

Rubby De La Rosa (elbow) will play catch every other day for another week before hopefully beginning a throwing program.

He played catch Wednesday for the second time since being placed on the disabled list. "I feel good," he said. "I feel pretty much normal." It's a nice first step for De La Rosa, who is battling a stretched ulnar collateral ligament, but he's a ways away. "When he starts to get off the mound, that will be the tell-tale sign of when he starts to go out and throw a couple (bullpens)," Diamondbacks manager Chip Hale said. "It’s back to spring-training mode for him."

Rubby De La Rosa (elbow) was scheduled to play catch Monday for the first time since being placed on the disabled list.

De La Rosa was diagnosed with a stretched ulnar collateral ligament in his elbow earlier this month, which Dr. James Andrews determined did not require Tommy John surgery. The Diamondbacks are hopeful that he'll return at some point in the second half.

Dr. James Andrews has determined that Rubby De La Rosa does not need another Tommy John surgery.

Andrews performed De La Rosa's first Tommy John surgery back in 2011 and took a look at his recent MRI results. He found a "stretched" ulnar collateral ligament, but no tear. De La Rosa is hopeful that rehab will get him back in the majors sometime in August.
Jun 7 - 6:01 PM

Diamondbacks manager Chip Hale announced Friday that Rubby De La Rosa has been diagnosed with a sprained UCL.

The D'Backs plan to consult with Dr. James Andrews, who performed De La Rosa's Tommy John surgery in 2011, before determining how to proceed. He should be considered out indefinitely.

Diamondbacks placed RHP Rubby De La Rosa on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to May 26, with a right elbow inflammation.

The club skipped De La Rosa's start last week due to some triceps soreness, among other things. He returned to take the ball on Wednesday in Pittsburgh and struggled and is now on the DL with what the D'Backs are calling an elbow injury. De La Rosa is expected to miss a month of action.
May 27 - 5:40 PM

Rubby De La Rosa allowed five runs over just 4 1/3 innings in Wednesday’s loss to the Pirates.

De La Rosa may not be walking as many batters as he has in previous seasons, but the right-hander still lacks quality command. He remains ripe for a blow-up inning, which is what occurred in Wednesday's four-run fifth. The Pirates homered twice, too, which continues to be a big problem for the 27-year-old. In the end, De La Rosa is what he is, a guy with some juice in his fastball, with an attractive strikeout rate, and a propensity to give up runs by the bushel-load. He now has a 4.15 ERA with 49 strikeouts in 47 2/3 innings.
May 25 - 10:38 PM

Diamondbacks manager Chip Hale revealed Saturday that Rubby De La Rosa has dealt with a tight triceps, a tight groin and a blister recently.

The decision to skip De La Rosa's start this past week makes more sense now. De La Rosa said Saturday that the additional rest has been beneficial. The right-hander is expected to rejoin the rotation on Wednesday in Pittsburgh.
May 22 - 8:41 AM

Rubby De La Rosa will be skipped on his next turn through the Diamondbacks rotation due to nagging injuries, manager Chip Hale announced Tuesday.

De La Rosa has been Arizona's most reliable starting pitcher to date, boasting a 3.53 ERA, 1.06 WHIP, and 45/15 K/BB ratio through 43 1/3 innings. Hale said the injuries are minor and De La Rosa should only miss one turn, but this is obviously something to monitor.
May 17 - 6:03 PM

Rubby De La Rosa pitched well in a no-decision against the Giants on Sunday, allowing just one run on one hit and four walks over his 6 2/3 frames.

De La Rosa punched out seven in the impressive outing. The only run, and hit, he allowed came on a solo home run off the bat of Trevor Brown in the third inning. The right-hander heads into Saturday's matchup against the Cardinals in St. Louis with an impressive 3.53 ERA, 1.06 WHIP and 45/15 K/BB ratio through his first 43 1/3 innings.
May 15 - 8:21 PM

Rubby De La Rosa felt no ill effects of Coors Field in Tuesday's 5-1 win over the Rockies, limiting the home side to one run over 7 1/3 innings.

De La Rosa yielded just four hits and a walk while striking out six in the outing. The start was a promising bounce-back after a clunker his last time out, and it was made even more impressive by the fact that it happened in the notoriously pitcher-unfriendly park. The win moved him to 4-4 with a 3.93 ERA, 1.12 WHIP and 38/11 K/BB ratio in 36 2/3 innings on the year. He'll try to replicate his success Sunday against the Giants.
May 11 - 1:06 AM

Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic reports that Rubby De La Rosa's next start has been pushed back from Monday to Tuesday.

It looks like Archie Bradley will take the ball Monday in Colorado. Robbie Ray had been scheduled to go Tuesday but will presumably be pushed back to Wednesday.
May 8 - 11:45 AM

Diamondbacks manager Chip Hale indicated Sunday that Rubby De La Rosa might not make his scheduled start Monday.

"We'll see," Hale responded when asked whether De La Rosa would take the ball Monday. The righty isn't injured, but it appears the D'Backs are considering a shakeup in their rotation. De La Rosa has been up and down this season, posting a 4.60 ERA but also a 32/10 K/BB ratio over 29 1/3 innings. Archie Bradley would seem to be a likely candidate to take De La Rosa's spot.
May 8 - 11:35 AM

Rubby De La Rosa couldn’t escape the sixth inning in Wednesday’s loss to the Marlins, serving up four runs on eight hits in 5 2/3 innings.

De La Rosa missed middle-middle on a 94 mph fastball to Giancarlo Stanton, something that rarely results in anything other than pain. His two-run blast capped the Marlins’ three-run third inning and ultimately ensured that the right-hander wouldn’t have a chance to pick up his fourth win of the season. De La Rosa continues to have a massive home-run problem -- he has his whole career -- and unless that’s somehow magically solved, the 27-year-old will always have issues with run prevention. He owns a 4.60 ERA in 29 1/3 innings this year.
