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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
Jul 12 - 4:11 PM

Rubby De La Rosa struggled in Sunday's loss to the Rockies, allowing six runs on eight hits over five-plus innings.

De La Rosa was bit by the home run bug, serving up a three-run shot to Troy Tulowitzki in the first inning and a two-run bomb to Carlos Gonzalez in the sixth. The rough start pushed an already lackluster ERA from 4.60 to 4.89. In addition, De La Rosa holds a 1.27 WHIP and 97/27 K/BB ratio over 106 2/3 innings. The strikeouts are there, and De La Rosa had pitched well in his previous four starts, but these kinds of big letdowns are ERA killers. He'll try to get back on the right track when he takes on the Mets at Citi Field in the Diamondbacks' final game before the All-Star Break.
Jul 5 - 7:52 PM

Rubby De La Rosa scattered two runs in 5 2/3 innings, but got a no-decision in Tuesday's 10-inning loss versus the Dodgers.

Both runs scored on a Yasmany Tomas home run in the second inning. De La Rosa allowed six hits and a walk overall while striking out seven. He's put together four terrific starts in a row now but still has a mediocre 4.60 ERA with a 1.24 WHIP and a 94/26 K/BB ratio in 101 2/3 innings. De La Rosa will look to keep it going when he faces the Rockies at home in his next start.
Jul 1 - 1:58 AM

Rubby De La Rosa spun seven innings of one-run ball Thursday in a no-decision against the Rockies.

De La Rosa left with the lead, but the Diamondbacks' bullpen quickly coughed it up in the eighth inning. Still, it was a very impressive outing at a tough place to pitch. De La Rosa gave up just five hits and one walk while striking out five, with the only damage coming on a solo homer from Nolan Arenado in the sixth. The 26-year-old has allowed just two earned runs in 22 innings over his last three starts, improving his ERA from 5.84 to 4.69 in the process. He'll try to keep it going against the Dodgers next week at home.

Rubby De La Rosa yielded two runs (one earned) over seven-plus innings Friday in a 4-2 win over the Padres.

De La Rosa had a bases-loaded walk in the fifth inning and the second run scored after Daniel Hudson replaced him following back-to-back errors. He fanned six and walked three for his sixth win of the season. After back-to-back awful starts, De La Rosa has now turned in consecutive strong effort to bring his ERA down to 4.96 for the year. He faces a challenging matchup next time out against the Rockies on the road.
Jun 20 - 2:59 PM

Rubby De La Rosa put in a nice rebound start in Sunday's 4-0 win over the Giants, tossing eight innings of shutout ball.

De La Rosa struck out six and walked two. He had allowed 16 runs in his last 10 innings, but showed a mental toughness to keep the rough patch from turning into a downward spiral of doom. Still, the poor stretch has taken its toll on his numbers. He'll bring a 5.27 ERA, 1.28 WHIP and 77/21 K/BB ratio over 82 innings into a home start against the Padres next time he toes the rubber.
Jun 14 - 7:29 PM

Rubby De La Rosa took a beating against the Dodgers in Monday's loss, yielding nine runs in five innings of work.

Six of the runs came on two three-run home runs: by Jimmy Rollins in the fourth inning and Andre Ethier in the fifth. The right-hander allowed 10 hits overall along with a walk while striking out four. It's just the latest shellacking in a very disappointing season for De La Rosa, now sitting on a 5.84 ERA with a 1.28 WHIP and a 71/19 K/BB ratio over 74 innings. He will try to get back on track over the weekend against the Giants in San Francisco.
