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.
Jun 9 - 12:57 AM

Rubby De La Rosa was battered by the Braves on Wednesday, allowing seven runs over five innings but escaping with a no-decision.

The Diamondbacks offense bailed out the right-hander, who gave up two home runs among his nine hits allowed. On the bright side, De La Rosa struck out eight in the effort. He's now failed to factor in the decision in each of his last four starts, watching his ERA rise to 5.09 with Wednesday's outing. He throws hard but is prone to some hard contact as well, and it won't get any easier for De La Rosa when he takes on the Dodgers in Los Angeles on Monday.
Jun 3 - 7:03 PM

Rubby De La Rosa gave up four runs over five innings in a no-decision against the Brewers on Friday.

Most of the damage came on the home run ball, as De La Rosa served up a leadoff blast to Carlos Gomez in the first before Adam Lind connected for a two-run shot in the third. De La Rosa struck out four and walked a pair in the no-decision and now has a 4.50 ERA through 10 starts. He's been prone to the home run ball, giving up 10 of them in 64 innings, but his 59/16 K/BB ratio hints at some upside.
May 30 - 12:14 AM

Rubby De La Rosa allowed four earned runs over six innings Saturday in the Diamondbacks' loss to the Cubs.

De La Rosa appeared headed for another good outing before the top of the fifth inning, when he hit Kris Bryant with the bases loaded and then Anthony Rizzo followed with a bases-clearing three-run double. De La Rosa yielded just four hits in all and struck out eight. The 26-year-old right-hander has emerged as a solid mixed-league starter and has a favorable matchup next week in Milwaukee.
May 24 - 1:29 AM

Rubby De La Rosa limited the Marlins to two runs over nine innings but got a no-decision as the D'Backs needed 13 innings to dispose of the opposition.

De La Rosa was working on a shutout until he hung a breaking ball to J.T. Realmuto in the seventh inning, resulting in a game-tying two-run home run. It was one of only six hits the right-hander allowed while walking none and striking out five. Aside from his mediocre start to open the season, De La Rosa has been rather effective. He currently carries a 4.08 ERA, a 1.11 WHIP, and a 47/12 K/BB ratio in 53 innings. His next outing will come at Wrigley Field against the Cubs.
May 18 - 10:40 PM

Rubby De La Rosa allowed four runs in seven innings, earning the win as the Diamondbacks routed the Nationals 14-6 on Tuesday.

The Diamondbacks' offense staked De La Rosa to an 8-2 lead after four innings and continued to pour on the runs, all but guaranteeing him the win. The right-hander allowed eight hits and a pair of walks while striking out four. De La Rosa has shown good stuff at times, but hasn't put it together in back-to-back starts yet. He has a 4.50 ERA with a 1.20 WHIP and a 42/12 K/BB ratio in 44 innings. He'll face the Marlins in Miami next.
May 13 - 12:55 AM

Rubby De La Rosa tossed seven shutout innings, striking out seven, in Thursday's blowout victory over the Padres.

He sprinkled three hits and walked two. His season can be summed up quickly: Two gems, four crummy showings. It adds up to a 4.38 ERA and 1.16 WHIP, and there's plenty of hope in that 38/10 K/BB rate that the ERA is about to go on the Paleo diet.
May 8 - 12:36 AM

Rubby De La Rosa gave up five runs in five innings Friday in a loss to the Dodgers.

De La Rosa gave up two homers tonight, bringing his season total to six surrendered in 30 innings. He has struck out 31 batters and walked just eight, but as long as he keeps giving up the long ball, his ERA will remain high.
May 2 - 2:29 AM

Rubby De La Rosa struck out eight and allowed just one run over seven innings in Saturday's 2-1 loss to the Pirates.

De La Rosa and A.J. Burnett were locked in an old school pitcher's duel, with both pitchers hurling seven innings of one-run ball and neither factoring into the decision. De La Rosa's struck out eight and did not walk a batter in the game. He allowed just four hits, with only an RBI double by Pedro Alvarez doing any damage. De La Rosa will take his 4.68 ERA and 25/5 K/BB ratio on the road against the Dodgers in his next start.
Apr 25 - 11:18 PM

Rubby De La Rosa yielded four runs -- three earned -- in 6 2/3 innings Saturday in a loss to the Giants.

De La Rosa probably pitched better tonight that he did in either of his two wins to open the season, but the run support wasn't as much in abundance. He's given up four homers through 18 innings, and until he stops doing serving up the long ball, he's not going to be an option in NL-only leagues.
Apr 19 - 1:07 AM

Rubby De La Rosa earned his second win, yielding three runs in six innings as the Diamondbacks defeated the Padres 8-4 on Monday.

De La Rosa allowed six hits and a walk while striking out five. The Padres struck for one run in each of the second, third, and fifth innings, but De La Rosa was mostly in control. He won on Tuesday despite struggling, so he's now 2-0 to start the season. If he wants to improve to 3-0, he can do so over the weekend at AT&T Park against the Giants.
