Diamondbacks' Rubby De La Rosa, Allen Webster tabbed to start
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(12/12/14) Diamondbacks general manager Dave Stewart indicated Friday that pitchers Rubby De La Rosa and Allen Webster are in line to pitch in the rotation in 2015, MLB.com reports. The two pitchers were acquired from the Red Sox in a trade that was announced Friday.
An earlier report stated that Stewart indicated that Josh Collmenter would start the regular-season opener, but he just happened to be the first name listed by the general manager when discussing the team's rotation plans. The team could still choose to bring in more starting pitching help, especially after clearing significant salary by trading away two veterans this week. Currently, Collmenter is lone holdover in the Diamondbacks rotation after the team acquired De La Rosa, Webster and Jeremy Hellickson to fill three spots.
Red Sox land Wade Miley in four-player deal with Diamondbacks
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(12/12/14) The Red Sox and Diamondbacks completed a trade Friday, with pitcher Wade Miley heading to Boston in exchange for pitchers Allen Webster and Rubby De La Rosa as well as infielder Raymel Flores .
The deal was one of two trades announced by the Diamondbacks between the two teams Friday. The Diamondbacks announced that pitcher Eury De La Rosa was designated for assignment in a related move.
Miley, 28, went 8-12 with a 4.34 ERA and 183:75 K:BB ratio in 201 1/3 innings in 2014. He's set to reach free agency after the 2017 season but will slide into Boston's new-look rotation for 2015.
Webster went 5-3 with a 5.03 ERA and 36:28 K:BB ratio in 59 innings over 11 starts with the Red Sox in 2014 while delivering a 3.10 ERA and 100:44 K:BB ratio in 122 innings with Triple-A Pawtucket. Webster was the No. 88 prospect in baseball before the 2014 season, according to Baseball America, and landed in the top 50 of the same list prior to the 2013 season.
De La Rosa made 18 starts and one relief appearance with the Red Sox in 2014, going 4-8 with a 4.43 ERA and 74:35 K:BB ratio in 101 2/3 innings. He also made 12 starts in Triple-A last season, posting a 3.45 ERA and 57:25 K:BB ratio in 60 innings.
Flores turned 20 years old in September and has spent three seasons in the Red Sox minor-league system. He hit .282/.344/.354 with one home run, 12 RBI and 14 stolen bases in 206 at-bats with low Class A Lowell in 2014.
Boston to acquire Wade Miley from Diamondbacks
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
|(12/10/14) The Red Sox Sox are set to acquire Diamondbacks pitcher Wade Miley, CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman confirms. The trade was first reported by FoxSports.com.
The two sides had been rumored to have been in contact about Miley throughout the day, but it was starting to look as though Boston was no longer the front-runner. The 28-year-old Miley posted a 4.34 ERA over 201 1/3 innings last season. Miley is under team control through 2017.
In exchange for Miley, Boston is giving up pitchers Allen Webster and Rubby De La Rosa. De La Rosa posted a 4.43 ERA over 101 2/3 innings last year. He's not set to become a free-agent until 2019. The 24-year-old Webster received 11 starts in the majors last year, posting a 5.03 ERA. Boston will also send make a minor-leaguer in the deal.
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
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
|(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.
|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.
