Red Sox optioned RHP Rubby De La Rosa to Triple-A Pawtucket.
De La Rosa had a 7.36 ERA in four appearances this spring in the Grapefruit League. The former Dodgers prospect will presumably be in the starting rotation at Triple-A Pawtucket and could become an emergency option for the Red Sox at some point this summer. Mar 20 - 4:03 PM

Rubby De La Rosa pitched a pair of scoreless frames Thursday as a Red Sox split-squad topped Boston College 5-2 in seven innings.

De La Rosa has a lot to prove this season after struggling last year in his first full year back from Tommy John surgery. He still has the potential to pitch in a major league rotation, but if he doesn't take a step forward, a permanent switch to the pen could be in the offing. He'll almost certainly open up at Triple-A Pawtucket.

Rubby De La Rosa decreased his body fat from 20 percent to 13 percent over the offseason.

"I worked hard. I feel better. I feel different," the right-hander said Thursday in Red Sox camp. "I feel like right with my mechanics, my delivery. This year to last year, I feel from 1-10, 10 better." De La Rosa will either open the 2014 season in the Boston bullpen or in the starting rotation at Triple-A Pawtucket.

Red Sox recalled RHP Rubby De La Rosa from Triple-A Pawtucket.

The 24-year-old righty has appeared in five games with the Red Sox this season, posting a 4.76 ERA, 1.24 WHIP and 3/1 K/BB ratio over 5 2/3 innings. One of the key pieces acquired in last season's blockbuster deal with the Dodgers, De La Rosa won't be relevant in fantasy leagues until he cracks the Red Sox starting rotation.

Red Sox recalled RHP Rubby De La Rosa from Triple-A Pawtucket.

De La Rosa, 24, has registered a 4.23 ERA, 1.36 WHIP and 74/42 K/BB ratio in 76 2/3 innings this season at the Triple-A level. He possesses good raw stuff but hasn't quite put it all together yet and will pitch for now in middle relief. There's no fantasy relevance here.

Red Sox optioned RHP Rubby De La Rosa to Triple-A Pawtucket.

De La Rosa didn't make an appearance in his couple days with the big club. The Red Sox have opted to have Pedro Beato as part of their bullpen instead. De La Rosa will return to the Pawtucket rotation.

Red Sox recalled RHP Rubby De La Rosa from Triple-A Pawtucket.

De La Rosa will provide a fresh arm in the bullpen after Thursday's 13-inning contest. The hard-throwing right-hander holds a 3.29 ERA and 38/20 K/BB ratio over 38 frames this season at Triple-A. He has a bright future as a starter and could get a chance in the rotation at some point this season, but he's needed in relief now.

Red Sox manager John Farrell said on SiriusXM's MLB Network Radio on Tuesday that Rubby De La Rosa is an option to start Wednesday against the Rays.

Franklin Morales was originally expected to make the start, but he was needed in Monday's extra-inning win. De La Rosa would be on three days' rest if he pitches Wednesday, which would obviously be less than ideal. Allen Webster and Alfredo Aceves are also in the mix for the assignment.

Rubby De La Rosa (intercostal) has resumed a throwing program.

De La Rosa was scratched from his start Tuesday with an intercostal strain but is expected to make a quick return to the Triple-A Pawtucket rotation. The 23-year-old right-hander has a 3.65 ERA and 29/14 K/BB ratio over eight starts (25 innings) this season.

Red Sox prospect right-hander Rubby De La Rosa was scratched from Tuesday's start with Triple-A Pawtucket for precautionary reasons after he tweaked a muscle in his side.

It's evidently not a major concern, but the Red Sox didn't want to risk him making things worse. De La Rosa has a 3.65 ERA and 29/14 K/BB ratio in 24 2/3 innings across eight starts this season in Triple-A and should make an impact with the big club before long.

Red Sox optioned RHP Rubby De La Rosa to Triple-A Pawtucket.

Perhaps the most exciting name acquired in the mid-season trade with the Dodgers last year, De La Rosa had virtually no chance of making the team out of spring training. The organization will play it very cautiously with their prized right-hander, who is currently working his way back from Tommy John surgery. Fantasy owners should still keep a close eye on him however, as he should make his way to Boston at some point in 2013.

Despite impressive results early in spring training, Red Sox manager John Farrell has indicated that Rubby De La Rosa will not make the team out of spring training.

Furthermore, he went as far to say that he could begin the year at Double-A Portland. The organization is being rightfully cautious with De La Rosa in his first season back from Tommy John surgery, but his stuff is too good to remain in the minor leagues for long. Expect to see him in Boston at some point during the 2013 campaign.

Rubby De La Rosa topped out at 100 mph in Sunday's Grapefruit League appearance.

The Red Sox are being cautious with De La Rosa in his first season back from Tommy John surgery, but the 23-year-old should contribute at some point in 2013. "Three pitches for strikes, confidence on the mound, a lot of good things out of him," said manager John Farrell. "When you profile that out, he's a starter. Time will tell what role he settles into."

Red Sox manager John Farrell said Rubby De La Rosa has "been impressive" early in spring training.

"He’s been impressive, not just in terms of the sheer stuff, but his ability to manipulate the baseball," Farrell said. "We’ll be a little bit more slow-paced with him early on." De La Rosa has been the talk of spring training and there's a lot of excitement about him right now. The Red Sox are expected to put him on an innings-limit in his first season back from Tommy John surgery, but he could force his way into the majors at some point in 2013.
