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. Oct 3 - 1:31 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.

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.

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.
Sep 13 - 1:31 AM

Rubby De La Rosa surrendered three runs on five hits over five-plus innings in Sunday's loss to the Cubs.

De La Rosa fanned six and walked two while allowing a run in the fifth and two more in the sixth. This season, he's pitched to a 4.49 ERA and 1.31 WHIP while compiling a 12-7 record. He'll face the Dodgers in a home start next time he toes the rubber.
Sep 6 - 5:49 PM

Rubby De La Rosa allowed three runs over six innings to earn the win in the second game of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Rockies.

De La Rosa gave up six hits, including a Nolan Arenado home run, without walking a batter in the start. The win was his sixth in his last seven decisions and moved him to 12-6 through 27 starts. De La Rosa will look to improve on his 4.46 ERA and 1.30 WHIP while adding to his win collection next week against the Giants.
Sep 2 - 1:31 AM

Jorge De La Rosa struggled in Thursday's loss to the Cardinals, allowing five runs on five hits over five innings.

In what was a sub-par start, De La Rosa walked four and allowed two home runs over just five innings. Tony Cruz took the 26-year-old right-hander yard for a solo shot in the second inning, while Brandon Moss cranked a two-run bomb in the fifth inning. The loss was De La Rosa's first since the All-Star Break. He'll look to rebound from this start when he takes his 4.46 ERA and 1.31 WHIP into a Tuesday afternoon road showdown with the Rockies.
Aug 28 - 1:07 AM

Rubby De La Rosa held the Reds to two runs over seven innings in a 6-3 win on Friday.

De La Rosa scattered seven hits while walking one and striking out six. He now holds a 2.54 ERA in seven starts since the All-Star break and has gone a perfect 5-0 along the way. He's still widely available in most fantasy leagues, but it's about time that changes. He'll try to keep the good vibes going when he faces the Cardinals next week at home.
Aug 22 - 12:36 AM

Rubby De La Rosa yielded one run in seven innings, but left with a no-decision in Sunday's 10-inning loss to the Braves.

The Braves pushed across their only run against him in the fifth inning, helped by a Nick Ahmed fielding error. De La Rosa worked around seven hits and four walks, striking out three on the afternoon. The right-hander has pitched quite well in the second half, owning a 2.54 ERA in his last six starts. On the season, he carries a 4.40 ERA with a 1.31 WHIP and a 119/45 K/BB ratio over 149 1/3 innings. De La Rosa matches up with the Reds in Cincinnati next.
Aug 16 - 5:10 PM

Rubby De La Rosa got his 10th win of the season, allowing three runs in six innings, as the Diamondbacks rolled over the Phillies 13-3 on Monday.

De La Rosa served up a monster home run to Maikel Franco in the sixth inning, but he was otherwise solid. He gave up eight hits, walked one, and struck out three. He hasn't lost since July 12, going 4-0 over his most recent five starts. On the season, De La Rosa has a 4.55 ERA, a 1.29 WHIP, and a 116/41 K/BB ratio over 142 1/3 innings. He'll take the hill in Atlanta against the Braves in his next outing.
Aug 11 - 12:57 AM

Rubby De La Rosa picked up his ninth win, allowing two runs in five innings as the Diamondbacks beat the Nationals 11-4 on Wednesday.

De La Rosa gave up only two hits and three walks while striking out three. Both runs came around in the first inning on sacrifice flies. The right-hander has been more good than bad since summer began, but still has an unimpressive 4.56 ERA with a 1.28 WHIP and a 113/40 K/BB ratio over 136 1/3 innings. De La Rosa will go for his fourth win in as many decisions when the Phillies visit Arizona next week.
Aug 5 - 11:20 PM

Rubby De La Rosa struggled in a no-decision against the Astros on Friday, allowing four runs on eight hits over his six frames.

De La Rosa punched out four on the night while walking only one. All of the damage against him came in the fifth inning, highlighted by a three-run blast off the bat of catcher Jason Castro. He'll look to improve upon a 4.59 ERA and 1.29 WHIP when he takes the hill against the Nationals in Washington on Wednesday.
Aug 1 - 12:00 AM

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.
Jul 25 - 11:09 PM

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.
