|Dane De La Rosa sets up in Halos' win |
|by Al Melchior | Data Analyst|
(8/29/13) Dane De La Rosa held the Rays hitless in the eighth inning Thursday, as he earned his 13th hold in the Angels' 2-0 victory.
Just one day after getting his second save of the season, De La Rosa returned to a setup role. He allowed only a walk in the inning, but he induced a double play, enabling him to face the minimum three batters.

(8/28/13) Dane De La Rosa may have pitched the ninth inning for a save Tuesday, with Ernesto Frieri preceding him in the eighth, but I don't think it necessarily refutes manager Mike Scioscia's claim Saturday that Frieri would be the Angels' primary closer going forward.
Frieri hadn't pitched since Friday. He needed work. The Angels were trailing by a run in the eighth inning and, as the road team, wouldn't have taken the field in the ninth if the score held. If Scioscia wanted to make absolutely sure Frieri pitched Tuesday, he had to use him in the eighth.
Granted, it certainly doesn't prove Frieri is back to closing for the Angels, and the continued uncertainty keeps De La Rosa relevant in Fantasy, particularly in deeper Rotisserie leagues where saves are scarce on the waiver wire. I would expect his opportunities to be few and far between going forward, though.

(8/28/13) With Ernesto Frieri taking on the eighth inning, Dane De La Rosa had a chance to grab the save Tuesday against the Rays.
De La Rosa entered the game in the bottom of the ninth following a four-run rally over the final three innings of the game to put the Angels on top, 5-4. He set down the Rays with 15 pitches, though he threw just seven of them for strikes. He walked one batter but was able to retire the side without incident, recording his second save of the season.
This was De La Rosa's first save opportunity since manager Mike Scioscia told reporters he would be splitting duties with Frieri. De La Rosa has a 3.45 ERA and 1.23 WHIP in 60 innings on the season.

(8/18/13) Angels manager Mike Scioscia said Sunday that both Dane De La Rosa and Ernesto Frieri will share the closer's role, according to MLB.com.
Frieri threw two scoreless frames Saturday and has not surrendered a run in his last four innings of relief. He is 26 of 30 in save chances with a 4.41 ERA and a 1.35 WHIP. He has not converted a save since Aug. 2.
De La Rosa has converted one save and owns a 3.56 ERA and a 1.22 WHIP in 55 2/3 innings of relief.
"I think you'll see Dane [De La Rosa] get some opportunities and you'll see Ernie get some opportunities," Scioscia said. "We have to be able to get those last three to six outs, and if they're both available, great. If one's down, the other guy is certainly a guy that can fill in."

(8/9/13) Angels reliever Dane De La Rosa was summoned in the ninth inning of Friday's 5-2 win over the Indians. He collected his first career save.
The right-hander worked his way around a walk as he tossed a scoreless inning to preserve the lead and the win for the Angels. He owns a 3.74 ERA and a 1.23 WHIP in 53 innings pitched this season.
