D'backs pitcher Rubby De La Rosa strikes out seven in losing effort
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(4/18/15) Diamondbacks pitcher Rubby De La Rosa allowed four runs, three earned, on nine hits in Arizona's 4-1 loss to the Giants Saturday.
De La Rosa ran into trouble in the first, when he gave up a leadoff double to Nori Aoki, who was driven in by Joe Panik on a single. He gave up another run in the third inning on a Buster Posey RBI single, driving in Joe Panik.
"He just left too many pitches up," D-backs manager Chip Hale said. "Once he started pitching down, he had some success. He battled. He gave up four runs -- tonight it wasn't good enough, but he's getting better each time out. It's improvement."
De La Rosa then gave up a two-run homer to Brandon Crawford in the fourth before settling down. De La Rosa, now 2-1, boasts a 6.00 ERA on the year. He will look to get back on track Saturday against the Pirates.

Rubby De La Rosa escapes rough outing with first win of season
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(4/8/15) Diamondbacks pitcher Rubby De La Rosa served up home runs to Buster Posey and Brandon Crawford, but still managed to escape with a win despite a rough outing against the Giants on Tuesday.
De La Rosa, who made his season debut, was shelled for six runs on eight hits and two walks while striking out five over 5 1/3 innings of a 7-6 victory. Of his 92 pitches, 56 were strikes. He starts the year with a 10.13 ERA.
De La Rosa will make his second start of the year Monday at San Diego. He went 1-5 with a 5.40 ERA last season away from home as a member of the Red Sox.
D-Backs' Hale says Archie Bradley still in mix for rotation spot
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(4/2/15) Diamondbacks manager Chip Hale acknowledged again Thursday the team is still considering Archie Bradley for the rotation, even after announcing its rotation plans earlier this week, per The Arizona Republic. The Diamondbacks' Opening Day rotation consists of Josh Collmenter, Jeremy Hellickson, Rubby De La Rosa, Trevor Cahill and Chase Anderson.
Hale said Bradley has "really made the decision tough on us" following a strong spring campaign. Bradley went 3-2 with a 1.61 ERA in six spring outings (four starts). He had 14 strikeouts in 22 1/3 innings.
Hale added the team has not talked about a six-man rotation. Also, putting Bradley in the bullpen as a long reliever remains an option as well.
Bradley was a consensus top-10 prospect heading into 2014, but struggled last season and has taken a slight tumble down the rankings this season. Baseball America has him ranked as the 25th-best prospect and MLB.com has him at No. 15 heading into the season.
|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.
