Rubby De La Rosa (elbow) will visit with Dr. James Andrews on Monday.

De La Rosa has tried to pitch through a sprained ulnar collateral ligament but is still feeling soreness and tightness in his elbow. He's already had one Tommy John surgery and it's possible he'll require another. De La Rosa is arbitration-eligible for a second time this winter.
Sep 25 - 12:39 PM

Diamondbacks manager Chip Hale conceded that Rubby De La Rosa (elbow) is unlikely to return this season.

Momentum was building for a comeback in late September but De La Rosa simply ran out of time. Originally slated for Tommy John surgery after tearing his UCL, De La Rosa chose the rehab route instead. It looks like he'll be fine for spring training next season.
Sep 24 - 6:41 PM

Diamondbacks manager Chip Hale said Saturday that Rubby De La Rosa (elbow) might pitch again this season after all.

The D'Backs announced Thursday that De La Rosa would be shut down, but Hale reversed course Saturday, saying the righty could pitch again if he shows improved command in bullpen sessions and in a simulated game. De La Rosa missed 3 1/2 months due to a sprained UCL and looked off in two appearances this month, but the club thinks his issues are more mental than physical.
Sep 18 - 9:47 AM

Due to lingering health concerns, Rubby De La Rosa will not pitch again this season.

De La Rosa was just activated from the 60-day disabled list on September 9. He had previously been sidelined by a sprained UCL in his right elbow. While he did make two appearances after being activated, manager Chip Hale did not like what he saw in those outings and the Diamondbacks have decided it would be best not to risk further injury. De La Rosa will continue to throw, but his 2016 season has been put to rest. He finished the abbreviated campaign holding a 4.26 ERA, 1.24 WHIP and 54/20 K/BB ratio over 50 2/3 innings.
Sep 16 - 12:36 AM

Diamondbacks manager Chip Hale said the team will reevaluate Rubby De La Rosa's health.

De La Rosa was lifted after throwing 45 pitches over one-plus innings Wednesday night against the Rockies. He's trying to work through a sprained UCL in his right elbow without going under the knife. "We’re going to look at his health," said Hale. "He didn’t seem to have the same kind of stuff coming out. Again the command was not good."
Sep 15 - 1:55 AM

Rubby De La Rosa was taken out after allowing one run in one-plus innings Wednesday in his start against the Rockies.

The Diamondbacks probably shouldn't have brought De La Rosa back at all, but they wanted to see if he could work his way back from his sprained UCL without surgery. The plan was for him to throw another two or three innings tonight (he threw two in his first start back from the DL last week), but with his pitch count up to 45 with no outs in the second, he had to be lifted.
Sep 15 - 1:40 AM

Back from the disabled list, Rubby De La Rosa allowed one run in two innings Friday in his start against the Giants.

The Diamondbacks put De La Rosa back into the rotation following his long absence, but they weren't expecting more than two or three innings from him. They ended up using 12 pitchers in the 12-inning game.
Sep 10 - 3:33 AM

Diamondbacks activated RHP Rubby De La Rosa from the 60-day disabled list.

De La Rosa will start Friday against the Giants after missing over three months with a sprained ulnar collateral ligament. He'll be on a very limited pitch count and needs to be avoided in fantasy leagues.
Sep 9 - 5:52 PM

Rubby De La Rosa (elbow) will start on Friday versus the Giants.

The feeling had been that De La Rosa would return as a reliever, but the D'Backs have decided to give him an abbreviated start instead. Braden Shipley had been slated for the start but now will likely follow De La Rosa out of the bullpen. De La Rosa is trying to pitch through a sprained ulnar collateral ligament and hasn't appeared in the majors since late May.
Sep 8 - 5:28 PM

Diamondbacks manager Chip Hale said Rubby De La Rosa (elbow) should be activated this weekend.

De La Rosa struck out four batters over two scoreless innings in his final rehab appearance Monday with High-A Visalia. He joined up with the Diamondbacks in Los Angeles ahead of Tuesday night's game but will take a few days of rest before officially joining the bullpen. The right-hander is making his way back from a sprained ulnar collateral ligament, an injury that can sometimes lead to Tommy John surgery.
Sep 6 - 9:17 PM

Rubby De La Rosa (elbow) will be activated from the disabled list following a final rehab appearance with High-A Visalia on Monday.

De La Rosa struck out two in a perfect inning in his first rehab appearance last Thursday. The right-hander will be used as a reliever down the stretch as he attempts to pitch with a sprained ulnar collateral ligament. The D'Backs will also get fellow rehabbers Chris Herrmann (hamstring) and Andrew Chafin (shoulder, groin) back shortly.
Sep 4 - 9:32 AM

Rubby De La Rosa (elbow) will throw a simulated game on Monday.

If that goes well, he'll then report to High-A Visalia where he'll begin a minor league rehab assignment. It's taken De La Rosa three months to recover from a sprained UCL. He opted for rehab instead of Tommy John surgery after consulting with Dr. James Andrews. The right-hander should be back for the final few weeks of the regular season.
Aug 25 - 7:49 PM

Rubby De La Rosa (elbow) is expected to begin a rehab assignment early next week.

De La Rosa came out of a side session Monday feeling good and will throw another one in a couple days. His elbow MRI was sent to Dr. James Andrews last week and the famous surgeon recommended a rehab program rather than surgery. The right-hander is aiming to return to the Diamondbacks at some point in September, even if it's in a bullpen role. He's had to scrap his changeup for now because that pitch causes him the most discomfort.

Rubby De La Rosa will attempt to rehabilitate his right elbow injury.

De La Rosa's elbow MRI was sent to Dr. James Andrews this week and the famous surgeon recommended a rehab program rather than a surgical procedure. De La Rosa will attempt to throw a bullpen session this weekend and is aiming to rejoin the Diamondbacks in September, though it will probably be in a relief role. He's going to scrap his changeup because throwing that pitch causes his elbow the most discomfort.
