Diamondbacks acquired RHP Rubby De La Rosa, RHP Allen Webster and INF Raymel Flores from the Red Sox for LHP Wade Miley.
The hard-throwing 25-year-old is the headliner of the deal for the Diamondbacks. While he had mixed results in 18 starts for the Red Sox in 2014, De La Rosa has top of the rotation potential and should be able to secure a spot in the Diamondbacks Opening Day rotation. With his ability to miss bats and a move to the pitcher-friendly league, he represents a very intriguing option in the later rounds of fantasy drafts. Fri, Dec 12, 2014 07:57:00 PM

Rubby De La Rosa will not make another start this season.

It's possible he'll appear in relief, but knuckleballer Steven Wright is expected to start on Friday in De La Rosa's place. The Red Sox are just keeping the youngster's innings in check, as De La Rosa has easily reached his career high with 160 frames this season between the minors and majors.

Rubby De La Rosa gave up six runs (four earned) on six hits in Saturday's loss to the Orioles.

Three of the six runs came via the long ball, as De La Rosa saw taters from Adam Jones and Christian Walker leave the park in the third and fourth innings, respectively. De La Rosa struck out four and walked two over four innings while picking up the loss. So far this season, De La Rosa's numbers, like his team, have split the nexus of mediocrity. A 4.50 ERA, a 1.49 WHIP and a .292 BAA in 100 innings pitched for a 67-87 Red Sox club.

Rubby De La Rosa was shelled for five earned runs in four innings Saturday in a loss to the Royals.

Kansas City jumped on De La Rosa early, pouring in two runs in the bottom of the first inning and another three in the fourth. The 25-year-old right-hander is now 4-7 with a 4.31 ERA and 1.37 WHIP in 96 innings this season. He could be shut down next week.

Red Sox manager John Farrell said Saturday that the club has "got a number in mind" as far as Rubby De La Rosa's innings limit this season.

He wouldn't reveal the exact number, but it's fair to guess that it's fast approaching given that De La Rosa's 148 frames this season is nearly 40 more than his previous career high. De La Rosa will start against the Blue Jays Sunday and it doesn't sound like he'll go deep into the game. "We’ve got a threshold in mind," Farrell said. "We cut him fairly short last time even though I thought he was throwing the ball very well. We are probably going to be a little bit shorter. We are not going to just let him go to unrestricted or 100-plus pitches."

Rubby De La Rosa was charged with three runs over 5 1/3 innings in Monday's loss to the Rays.

De La Rosa permitted six hits, didn't walk anyone and recorded four punchouts. He needed 95 pitches to cover the 5 1/3 frames and has now failed to go six innings in three of his last four starts. He'll try to get back on track this weekend against the Blue Jays.

Rubby De La Rosa got a no-decision, allowing three runs in 4 2/3 innings as the Red Sox earned an 11-inning victory against the Blue Jays on Tuesday.

De La Rosa failed to make it out of the fifth inning for the second time in his last three starts. The right-hander gave up seven hits and walked two without recording a strikeout. Now with a 3.81 ERA, a 1.45 WHIP, and a 58/31 K/BB ratio, the 25-year-old will open the month of September with a road start against the Rays.

Rubby De La Rosa was solid, allowing two runs over 6 2/3 innings, but took a loss on Thursday against the Angels.

The Angels had base runners, scratching out eight hits and drawing three walks, but De La Rosa was able to limit the damage, striking out eight batters in the process. Angels starter Matt Shoemaker, however, was not to be trifled with on this evening, saddling De La Rosa with a loss. The right-hander has a 3.69 ERA, 1.42 WHIP, and a 58/29 K/BB ratio in 12 starts this season. De La Rosa's next start will come on Tuesday in Toronto against the Blue Jays.

Rubby De La Rosa was tagged for six runs and nine hits in four innings by the Astros on Saturday.

This is the second time since the All-Star break that De La Rosa has given up six earned runs in four innings. However, he's allowed a total of six runs over 26 innings in his other four starts. Coming into this one, he had allowed two runs in 13 innings this month. He's due to face the Angels next time out, so mixed leaguers won't want him active.

Rubby De La Rosa struck out eight while allowing just one run over seven innings in Sunday's win over the Angels.

De La Rosa and Hector Santiago were locked in a scoreless draw for much of the game, but De La Rosa prevailed for his fourth victory. The only damage against him was a Mike Trout solo home run in the eighth, ending De La Rosa's afternoon. The right-hander has a 3.21 ERA through 11 starts this year, and he's rattled off three consecutive quality starts. He'll look to make it four against the Astros on Saturday.

Rubby De La Rosa held the Cardinals to one run over six innings but settled for a no-decision on Tuesday.

De La Rosa worked around baserunners all night, scattering six hits and three walks in the start. De La Rosa also struck out three. He left with the lead, but the bullpen couldn't hold on to give De La Rosa his fourth victory. Even so, the right-hander owns a 3.43 ERA through 10 starts this year, and he'll look for that fourth win when he faces the Angels on Sunday.

Rubby De La Rosa notched a quality start on Tuesday, allowing three runs over six innings, but took a loss against the Blue Jays.

It could have been a lot worse for De La Rosa, as the lefty allowed nine hits and walked two while only striking out one batter. The 25-year-old has a 3.64 ERA, a 1.29 WHIP, and a 37/16 K/BB ratio. De La Rosa will begin an eight-game road trip when he takes on the Cardinals on Tuesday.

Rubby De La Rosa gave up seven runs -- six earned -- in four-plus innings Thursday in a loss to the Blue Jays.

The first-inning run scored on a passed ball and the two-run second probably never would have gotten started had Jackie Bradley Jr. been able to hold on to Juan Francisco's inning-opening triple. Still, it wasn't likely to be a very good outing for De La Rosa regardless. It's the first time in eight starts this season that he's allowed more than four runs, and his ERA jumped from 2.64 to 3.54.

Rubby De La Rosa tossed seven innings of one-run ball Saturday as the Red Sox beat the Royals 2-1.

De La Rosa walked four but gave up only five hits to the struggling Kansas City offense. He has a fantastic 2.64 ERA and 1.08 WHIP over 44 1/3 innings (seven starts) this season for Boston and looks to be a strong fantasy option for the second half. The young right-hander will face the Blue Jays in Toronto next week.

Rubby De La Rosa yielded three runs and two homers in five innings Wednesday against the White Sox.

Homers from Jose Abreu and Conor Gillaspie scored the first two runs. The third came on a Mike Napoli error, but the run was declared earned because of a triple afterwards. De La Rosa could be sent right back down to Triple-A now because the Red Sox won't need him again until after the break, but he should be the team's fifth starter in the second half. Assuming that happens, he'll be worth playing in AL-only leagues and deeper mixed leagues.
