Rubby De La Rosa tossed six strong innings against the Pirates on Saturday night, striking out six and allowing just one run to pick up his second win of the year.

De La Rosa’s box score looked clean aside from the solo homer by Sean Rodriguez, but he did squirm out of a dangerous situation in the first. With runners at second and third with one out, he struck out Starling Marte and got Francisco Cervelli to harmlessly ground out to keep the game tied at zero. No Pirates hitter advanced past first base on the right-hander the rest of the night. He remains a shaky play in fantasy, due to his propensity to get blasted on any given night, but he’ll occasionally twirl a gem and remind fantasy owners what he could be. De La Rosa has a 5.94 ERA in 16 2/3 innings.
Apr 24 - 12:06 AM

Needed in relief again, Rubby De La Rosa picked up a win after throwing a scoreless 10th Monday against the Giants.

De La Rosa would have started today, except he was needed out of the pen in Saturday's game against the Padres. As a result, he was pushed back and Archie Bradley started in his place. It wasn't expected that De La Rosa would work in relief again, but he was available when the game went to extras. He still figures to slot back into the rotation later this week.
Apr 19 - 3:03 AM

Rubby De La Rosa yielded three runs -- two earned -- in 4 2/3 innings Wednesday in a loss to the Dodgers.

The Diamondbacks have very high expectations for themselves and are off to a pretty poor start, so it wouldn't be a surprise to see them get antsy if things don't turn around soon. In other words, De La Rosa needs a better outing next week. He's 0-2 with an 8.00 ERA right now.
Apr 14 - 1:32 AM

Rubby De La Rosa was dismantled by the Cubs in Thursday's loss, surrendering seven runs (six earned) on six hits over 3 1/3 innings.

De La Rosa ladled out three walks against two strikeouts. The Cubs scored their first two runs off the 27-year-old right-hander in the second inning courtesy of a two-run single off the bat of Addison Russell. They would add two more runs in the third inning (one unearned), then vanquish De La Rosa altogether in the fourth. In that frame, Russell led off with a double. One out later, Dexter Fowler drove him home with a triple. After walking the next batter (Jason Heyward), De La Rosa's evening was finished. With ERA's of 4.51 and 4.91 in each of the last two seasons, he makes for an unreliable fantasy option.
Apr 8 - 1:13 AM

Rubby De La Rosa gave up six earned runs on 11 hits Sunday in a loss to the Rockies.

Another rough-looking outing for the Arizona right-hander, who is sitting on a 7.45 spring training ERA. De La Rosa did strikeout three and he only walked one batter, but the Rockies racked up six doubles and five singles against him. He's not a great fantasy option heading into the 2016 regular season.
Mar 27 - 6:59 PM

Rubby De La Rosa struck out five over four scoreless innings in the Diamondbacks' 3-0 win over the Royals on Saturday.

It was a nice bounce-back effort after he allowed three runs in two innings in his last start. De La Rosa allowed just four hits, all singles, without walking a batter. He holds a 5.63 ERA through three spring appearances.
Mar 12 - 6:01 PM

Rubby De La Rosa was touched up for three runs over two innings of work in Monday's win over the Mariners.

De La Rosa yielded four hits and walked a pair while striking out one. The right-hander has struggled in each of his first two Cactus League outings, but it's hardly anything to get worked up about. De La Rosa showed flashes but ultimately had an inconsistent first season with Arizona in 2015.
Mar 7 - 7:13 PM

Rubby De La Rosa yielded two earned runs in two innings Wednesday in his Cactus League debut against the Rockies.

De La Rosa retired the first batter he faced in the bottom of the first inning, but DJ LeMahieu and Carlos Gonzalez both singled and then Nolan Arenado smacked an RBI double. Gerardo Parra drove in the second run off De La Rosa with a soft groundout to second base. De La Rosa was able to rally with a clean second frame. He is locked into a spot in the Diamondbacks' Opening Day rotation.
Mar 2 - 6:40 PM

Diamondbacks manager Chip Hale announced Saturday that Rubby De La Rosa has a spot secured in the Diamondbacks' Opening Day rotation.

He joins Zack Greinke, Patrick Corbin and Shelby Miller as the top four in the D'Backs rotation, leaving Robbie Ray, Zack Godley, Archie Bradley and a host of others to compete for the fifth and final spot. De La Rosa won 14 games in 2015 despite a 4.67 ERA and 1.36 WHIP in his 188 2/3 innings.
Feb 20 - 11:43 AM

Diamondbacks and RHP Rubby De La Rosa avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $2.35 million contract.

Financial terms of the deal have yet to be disclosed. He will head into spring camp competing for a spot in a crowded starting rotation, despite winning 14 games in 2015.
Jan 15 - 7:37 PM

Rubby De La Rosa surrendered six runs -- four earned -- in three innings Friday against the Astros.

De La Rosa ends the year 14-9, but it comes with a 4.67 ERA and 32 homers allowed in 188 2/3 innings. As a bottom-of-the-rotation guy, he might remain somewhat valuable. However, he might have more upside working out of the pen.
Sat, Oct 3, 2015 01:31:00 AM

Rubby De La Rosa limited the Giants to one hit over 5 2/3 innings in the Diamondbacks' 2-0 win Friday.

The Diamondbacks considered skipping De La Rosa this week in an effort to manage his innings, but it looks like they made a good call letting him face the Giants. He improved to 13-8 on the season, even though his ERA is still something of an eyesore at 4.60. De La Rosa will still likely be skipped once this month, since he's in uncharted territory as far as innings.
Sat, Sep 19, 2015 02:27:00 AM

Diamondbacks manager Chip Hale said Sunday that the team may skip Rubby De La Rosa's next scheduled start.

Hale also indicated that the rest of the rotation would remain intact for the remainder of the season. The 26-year-old has already logged a career-high 174 1/3 innings on the season, and may be showing signs of fatigue. Fantasy owners may want to avoid him if possible for the remainder of the season.
Sun, Sep 13, 2015 11:37:00 PM

Rubby De La Rosa was tagged for six runs in two-plus innings by the Dodgers on Saturday.

De La Rosa surrendered two homers, pushing his season total to 31 allowed in 174 1/3 innings. He's proven to be pretty good when he can avoid the home run ball, but the view from here still suggests that his upside is limited.
