|Jorge De La Rosa pitches three scoreless innings vs. Cubs |
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(7:42 pm ET) Rockies pitcher Jorge De La Rosa gave up just two hits and one walks in three scoreless innings and struck out one in his team's 13-0 win over the Cubs Tuesday.
De La Rosa surrendered four earned runs in 1 2/3 innings in his spring debut but has performed much better since, giving up just one earned run in six innings over his last two games. He'll continue to serve as the team's ace this season.
|Jorge De La Rosa expected to be named opening day starter |

(3/9/14) Rockies starter Jorge De La Rosa is expected to be named the team's opening day starter, according to the Denver Post.
With Jhoulys Chacin sidelined by an injury, De La Rosa is the starter with the most experience. Based on his current pitching schedule, De La Rosa is in line for the start. Last season, De La Rosa posted a 3.49 ERA in 167 2/3 innings.
|Jorge De La Rosa surrenders one run in three innings Friday |
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(3/7/14) Rockies pitcher Jorge De La Rosa gave up just one earned run on three hits and one walk while striking out two in three innings in his team's 7-2 win over the Angels Friday.
De La Rosa rebounded from a poor effort in his spring debut in which he surrendered four earned runs while getting just five outs. While his five earned runs to date represent a higher total than the four he allowed through 12 2/3 innings last spring, he has generally been knocked around in spring training during his career, posting a 5.12 ERA in 117 2/3 career spring innings.
|Jorge De La Rosa shows rust in spring debut |
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
(3/2/14) Rockies starting pitcher Jorge De La Rosa showed some signs of rust on Sunday, lasting less than two innings in his spring training debut against the Brewers.
De La Rosa served up a leadoff home run to Rickie Weeks in the opening inning, and three more runs in the second frame. He allowed four runs on four hits and two walks over 1 2/3 innings of work.
|Jorge De La Rosa learned to pitch to contact in 2013 |
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(2/10/14) Rockies starting pitcher Jorge De La Rosa said a change in the way he attacked hitters led to his career season in 2013 -- his first full season back from Tommy John surgery. A slight drop in velocity returning from elbow surgery led the veteran left-hander to get creative in his approach, according to The Denver Post.
"I learned more from the hitters than ever before," he said. "That was the biggest key for me. I worked harder in trying to see what the hitters' holes were and I tried to pitch for more contact.
"When I had that hard fastball (in the past), I didn’t think about anything. I'd just throw the ball. I watched video on how Andy Pettitte and Cliff Lee pitched. They pitch a lot more to contact and I see how they pitch to the hitters, and that’s where I was. I will still do that, and I hope to be even better because I believe my fastball will be stronger this year."
|You could argue veteran pitcher Jorge De La Rosa is a Tommy John success story. After undergoing the elbow operation in 2011 and struggling to get back in 2012, De La Rosa had no elbow issues in 2013 on his way to netting a team-high 16 wins for the Rockies. De La Rosa also posted a career-best 3.49 ERA in 30 starts, though it was an uneven season for the left -hander, as he also had a 1.38 WHIP and his strikeout rate slumped to 6.0 K/9. Despite going 6-0 in his last seven starts, De La Rosa posted a 4.10 ERA and 1.55 WHIP in that span. Shockingly, De La Rosa's struggles last season came away from hitter-friendly Coors Field. De La Rosa went 10-1 with a 2.76 ERA in 14 home starts, as opposed to 6-5 with a 4.19 ERA in 16 road starts. De La Rosa has already figured out how to pitch in the thin air in Colorado, so if he can correct his road woes, then he might be more than just a back-of-the-rotation arm in deeper mixed Fantasy leagues.
