Rockies SP Jorge De La Rosa becomes team's all-time K leader
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(5/21/15) Rockies starter Jorge De La Rosa made a bit of history in the team's 7-3 win over the Phillies on Thursday. The left-hander pitched 4 1/3 innings, allowing three runs on five hits. He walked three and struck out five, and became the Rockies' all-time leader in strikeouts. He passed Ubaldo Jimenez with his 774th career punchout.
"You look at his career and how he stacks up against Rockies pitchers in this franchise's history," manager Walt Weiss said, per MLB.com. "He's right there at the top. This is just another number we have to prove that."
De La Rosa labored in this one, throwing 108 pitches (63 strikes) in the no-decision, as he couldn't make it out of the fifth. He allowed an RBI single in the third, and then he surrendered a solo home run to Ryan Howard as part of a two-run fifth inning.
"De La started the game with a tear in his finger," catcher Michael McKenry said. "He was bleeding on the ball in the bullpen, and it was tough for him today. And he battled."
This was a step backwards for the veteran left-hander, after he twirled 7 1/3 shutout innings in his last start. His ERA sits at a hefty 6.51 mark as he is scheduled to make his next start Monday in Cincinnati.
Rockies SP Jorge De La Rosa will start against Phillies
|(5/21/15) Rockies starting pitcher Jorge De La Rosa will start against the Phillies on Thursday, after a groin injury forced him out of his last appearance.
De La Rosa, who struggled in his first four starts, pitched 7 1/3 scoreless innings against the Dodgers on May 16th before being injured during a fielding play.
The impressive performance lowered his ERA to 6.56 in 23 1/3 innings.
Rockies' Jorge De La Rosa downplays groin issue
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(5/17/15) Rockies pitcher Jorge De La Rosa delivered a gem Saturday but had to come out of the start with pain in his left groin on an injury suffered during a fielding play in the eighth inning, MLB.com reports.
De La Rosa caught the spike of his left shoe in the grass, causing the injury. He left after 7 1/3 scoreless innings having allowed just two hits and no walks while striking out three in 95 pitches. He downplayed the issue after the game.
"When I hurt something, I feel I don't try to do too much," De La Rosa said. "I'll just fix this thing and get ready for my next start."
The pitcher had struggled in his first four starts before delivering an excellent performance Saturday and lowering his ERA to 6.56 in 23 1/3 innings.
"I've been pitching in this game for a long time," De La Rosa said. "I know what I need to have success. I know I wasn't pitching good. I know a lot of people were worried about it. But I don't worry about it, at all. I know I'm a better pitcher than I was, and I proved that tonight."
Manager Walt Weiss was "hopeful" that De La Rosa would be able to make his next start.
Rockies SP Jorge De La Rosa shuts down Dodgers lineup
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(5/17/15) Rockies starter Jorge De La Rosa was absolutely dominant against the Dodgers on Saturday. The veteran left-hander allowed just two hits in 7 1/3 scoreless innings, as the Rockies picked up the 7-1 victory. He threw 62 of his 95 pitches for strikes as he kept a dangerous Dodgers lineup quiet.
De La Rosa (1-2) gave up a double and a single, struck out three and walked none as he dropped his ERA to 6.56. He will try to keep the momentum on his side when he takes the mound Thursday against the Phillies.
Rockies starting pitcher Jorge De La Rosa roughed up in no-decision
|by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer|
|(5/10/15) Rockies starting pitcher Jorge De La Rosa was touched for five runs on five hits in four innings Sunday for a no-decision against the Dodgers.
The Rockies took a 5-2 lead after four innings but De La Rosa walked the bases loaded in the fifth to set up Adrian Gonzalez's three-run double that tied the game and ended the right-hander's night.
De La Rosa is now winless in four starts with an ERA of 9.56.
De La Rosa's next scheduled start is set for Friday in Los Angeles against the Dodgers.
|2014 Summary: In his second full season back from Tommy John surgery, Jorge De La Rosa restored his fastball velocity nearly back to its previous levels. The 11-year veteran had little problem getting swings-and-misses, coaxing them at a 10.5 percent rate, but a lack of called strikes limited his strikeout rate. With a 6.8 K/9 ratio, De La Rosa is still not the strikeout pitcher he was prior to his surgery, But he pitched well enough to be the Rockies' nominal ace, going 14-11 with a 4.10 ERA in 32 starts.|
Playing time status: De La Rosa signed a two-year extension last September, so he is primed to be a central part of the Rockies rotation again this season.
2015 Outlook: With increased velocity and a double-digit whiff rate, De La Rosa showed some strikeout potential, and he will need to realize it to have mixed league value. Owners are best off leaving the lefty for their NL-only leagues for now.
