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.

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.

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.
Apr 14 - 1:47 AM

Rubby De La Rosa was able to narrowly escape with the win despite allowing six runs in 5 1/3 innings, as the Diamondbacks held off the Giants for a 7-6 win on Tuesday.

The Giants were squaring De La Rosa up regularly as five of the eight hits he allowed were of the extra-base variety. Buster Posey and Brandon Crawford both registered home runs off of the right-hander. De La Rosa also walked two and struck out five on the evening. He'll try to improve in his next start at Petco Park against the Padres.
Apr 8 - 1:05 AM

Rubby De La Rosa threw well in his final Cactus League start on Thursday, limiting the White Sox to one run over six innings.

De La Rosa learned he had secured a rotation spot last week on the heels of a productive spring. He held the White Sox to four hits and a walk while striking out four. He concludes the spring with a 3.15 ERA and an 18/12 K/BB ratio in 20 innings. De La Rosa should have some NL-only appeal to start the season.
Apr 2 - 6:41 PM

Diamondbacks manger Chip Hale confirmed Tuesday that Rubby De La Rosa has secured a spot in the team's Opening Day rotation.

The 26-year-old right-hander has pitched decently in Cactus League play, though his 10 walks in 12 innings have led to a 1.42 WHIP. De La Rosa's strikeout ability makes him an interesting option in the later rounds of NL-only and deeper mixed league drafts.
Mar 24 - 9:36 PM

Diamondbacks manager Chip Hale admitted Sunday that Rubby De La Rosa was in good shape to secure a spot in the team's Opening Day rotation.

The 26-year-old has pitched well in Cactus League play, posting a 3.75 ERA, 1.42 WHIP and 11/10 K/BB ratio in 12 innings. While his inconsistent command could lead to a high WHIP, his ability to rack up strikeouts makes him mixed league relevant if he indeed wins a spot in the rotation.
Mar 22 - 5:17 PM

Rubby De La Rosa allowed two runs over four innings of work on Thursday versus the Cubs.

De La Rosa yielded just two hits and struck out five, but he issued four walks and needed 72 pitches to cover four innings. He's now walked 10 over 12 frames so far during Cactus League play. De La Rosa has arguably the best upside of those competing for a spot in the Arizona rotation, but he's going to have to start throwing strikes.
Mar 19 - 11:38 PM

Rubby De La Rosa had control issues in Saturday's loss to the Mariners, walking four and allowing three runs over three innings of work.

De La Rosa cruised through the first inning but ran into trouble in the second, walking four batters and hitting another. In the third inning, his control was fine but the Mariners hit him for two more runs. It was a bump in the road for the 26-year-old, who had thrown five scoreless innings this spring prior to Saturday, as he tries to win a starting job in Arizona.
Mar 14 - 7:16 PM

Rubby De La Rosa struck out two over two scoreless innings of work in his Cactus League debut against the Rockies Wednesday.

De La Rosa allowed a lone hit and didn't walk anyone. It will be a big spring for the 26-year-old, who came over from the Red Sox in the Wade Miley trade. De La Rosa throws smoke and should have a shot at winning a rotation spot with a good showing. Wednesday was a good start.
