Red Sox shuffle rotation for final week
|by Al Melchior | Data Analyst|
|(9/21/14) WEEI.com reports that Brandon Workman and Rubby De La Rosa have been removed from the Red Sox's rotation for the final week of the season. Clay Buchholz, Anthony Ranaudo and Allen Webster are set to make starts against the Rays, and then Joe Kelly and Buchholz will start the last two games of the team's season-ending series against the Yankees.
Friday's starter in the series opener against the Yankees is still to be named, but Steven Wright is a candidate to get the nod. Wright has posted a 3.38 ERA in five relief appearances this season.
Rubby De La Rosa drops one Saturday

|(9/20/14) Red Sox starter Rubby De La Rosa turned in a rough start Saturday against the Orioles.
De La Rosa allowed four runs on six hits over four innings. He struck out four and walked two during the outing. De La Rosa was solid to open things up, tossing two scoreless frames to open the game, but got himself in trouble in the third. After a Delmon Young single, Adam Jones launched a two-run shot out to right center. Christian Walker struck the next inning, hitting a solo shot. Another run came in on a sac fly during the inning.
With the loss, De La Rosa dropped to 4-8. He’ll take on the Yankees in his next start.
Rubby De La Rosa gets rocked in loss to Royals

|(9/13/14) Red Sox pitcher Rubby De La Rosa got rocked Saturday night at Kansas City, dropping to 4-7 on the year. He was shelled for five runs on six hits and no walks while striking out two over four innings of a 7-1 defeat.|
Over his last four starts covering 18 innings of work, De La Rosa has allowed 14 earned runs. He owns a 4.31 ERA and a 1.47 WHIP over 17 starts (96 innings). His next start will come Saturday at Baltimore.
Long ball leads to early exit for Rubby De La Rosa
|by Al Melchior | Data Analyst|
|(9/7/14) After getting out of jams in the third and fourth inning, a three-run, no-out homer in the fifth inning was too much for Rubby De La Rosa, as he exited with a deficit that the Red Sox could not recover from. Jose Bautista's blast sent De La Rosa to the showers, and the Blue Jays prevailed, 3-1, on Sunday.
The three runs were all that De La Rosa allowed, but he yielded a total of seven hits and two walks in four-plus innings. He struck out two batters in the effort.
While the flurry of baserunners contributed to De La Rosa's early exit, so may have a pitch limit. Red Sox manager John Farrell told the Boston Herald he would be watching De La Rosa's workload, saying, "we are not going to just let him go to unrestricted or 100-plus pitches." The 25-year-old threw 81 pitches in the outing.
De La Rosa's record fell to 4-6, while his ERA rose to 4.01.
Rubby De La Rosa surrenders three runs vs. Rays
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(9/1/14) Red Sox pitcher Rubby De La Rosa didn't factor into Monday's decision after allowing three earned runs on six hits in 5 1/3 innings while striking out four in his team's 4-3, 10-inning loss to the Rays.
De La Rosa was touched up for all three runs in a third inning that featured three singles and a double, but he otherwise pitched well in the no-decision. He owns a 3.89 ERA and 62:31 K:BB ratio in 88 innings. De La Rosa is scheduled to face the Blue Jays Saturday.
|2014 summary: Upon joining the Red Sox's rotation in late May, Rubby De La Rosa made his first major league starts since undergoing Tommy John surgery in 2011. He was initially a welcome addition, posting a 2.64 ERA over his first seven turns in the rotation, but eventually, suspect control caught up with him. De La Rosa had a hard time getting strikeouts, and hitters frequently subjected him to hard contact. The final result was a 4-8 record and a 4.43 ERA.|
Playing time status: De La Rosa is not guaranteed a return to the rotation, but beyond Clay Buchholz and Joe Kelly, spots are up for grabs. Despite his struggles, De La Rosa had one of the more successful auditions among the Red Sox's young starters, so he stands at least a decent chance of winning a spot.
2015 outlook: Though De La Rosa was generally ineffective down the stretch, he did show improved control. If he can couple that with a higher strikeout rate, he could sustain the value for mixed league owners that he showed briefly upon his callup. In deeper mixed leagues, it's worth chasing that upside with a late-round pick, but owners in standard mixed leagues can ignore De La Rosa on draft day.
