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.

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.

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.
May 4 - 10:32 PM

Rubby De La Rosa was clutch in Thursday's 3-0 win over the Cardinals, striking out 10 over seven shutout innings.

De La Rosa allowed just two hits on the evening. He walked two and exited having thrown a tidy 94 pitches (65 strikes). It was a sparkling outing any way you cut it. Through four starts (seven appearances), the 27-year-old right-hander holds a 4.18 ERA, 1.10 WHIP and 28/8 K/BB ratio. A road date with the Marlins shows next on his schedule as he tries to build on Thursday's fantastic start.
Apr 29 - 12:10 AM

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.
