D-Backs starting rotation features Chase Anderson, Trevor Cahill


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(3/30/2015) The Diamondbacks announced that Chase Anderson, Trevor Cahill, Josh Collmenter, Rubby De La Rosa and Jeremy Hellickson will fill out the five-man rotation to start the season

With Cahill and Anderson making the rotation, Daniel Hudson will move to the bullpen. According to MLB.com, a final decision on the order of the rotation has yet to be determined.

However, Collmenter is expected to start on Opening Day and De La Rosa is the most likely candidate to pitch the second game. Hellickson is slated to start the third, leaving the coaching staff a decision to make on which games Anderson and Cahill will start. 


Diamondbacks pitcher Rubby De La Rosa could be No. 2 starter


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(3/28/2015) Diamondbacks manager Chip Hale has named his Opening Day starter, Josh Collmenter, but has yet to unveil the rest of his starting rotation. Because Collmenter and another starter, Jeremy Hellickson, have similar styles, Hale is considering Rubby De La Rosa as the No. 2 when the season begins, reports MLB.com.

"We are in serious discussion about doing something like that," Hale said.

De La Rosa has a 3.75 ERA in four appearances this spring. He's recorded 11 strikeouts with five earned runs allowed in 12 innings pitched.


Diamondbacks' Rubby De La Rosa will be part of starting rotation


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(3/24/2015) Diamondbacks pitcher Rubby De La Rosa will be a part of the team's starting rotation when the season begins, manager Chip Hale confirmed Tuesday.

De La Rosa, who has allowed five earned runs over 12 innings this spring, was reported to have won a spot in the rotation after his start Sunday.

"I think he's one of our five starters, yes," Hale said. "I think Rubby's proven enough to us. Like I said, there's two weeks left. Right now, he's one of our five. He's a difference-maker, being a power guy in our rotation with Hellickson and Collmenter being more of the finesse-type pitchers. He's a nice mix in there, so I feel good about him starting for us."

De La Rosa posted a 4-8 record with a 4.43 ERA and 74 strikeouts in 101 2/3 innings in 2014 for the Red Sox.


Diamondbacks' Rubby De La Rosa likely headed for rotation


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/22/2015) Diamondbacks manager Chip Hale made it seem as if pitcher Rubby De La Rosa is in line to win a rotation spot Sunday, the Arizona Republic reports.

De La Rosa was acquired in a trade with the Red Sox this offseason and pegged as a potential rotation candidate for Arizona after the deal. He's allowed five earned runs in 12 innings this spring while striking out 11 and walking 10.


Diamondbacks' Rubby De La Rosa walks four Thursday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/20/2015) Diamondbacks pitcher Rubby De La Rosa allowed two earned runs on two hits and four walks in four innings while striking out five in Thursday's spring start against the Cubs.

"Today I threw a lot of breaking balls, 10 to 12," De La Rosa said after the start, per MLB.com. "I didn't do that the last couple of outings, but today I feel good about having that ability and control to throw it in any count."

De La Rosa put together five scoreless innings in his first two appearances this spring but has surrendered five runs in six innings in his last two games, walking seven batters during that stretch. He's competing for a role in the starting rotation this spring after coming over from the Red Sox this offseason.


Diamondbacks P Rubby De La Rosa struggles against Mariners


by Dave Peters | CBSSports.com
(3/14/2015) Diamondbacks pitcher Rubby De La Rosa struggled in his most recent appearance against the Mariners.

"I was rushing a little," De La Rosa said. "It's not a big deal. I tried to do too much, tried to throw perfect pitches. I think that's what made me rush a little bit."

After having a successful first inning, De La Rosa faltered in the second.

"The first inning he wasn't [rushing]," D-backs manager Chip Hale said. "After that he definitely was rushing or something was different about it because he didn't throw as many strikes. We're just seeing some chinks in the armor. We're going to have to fix it. It's our job."

De La Rosa, 26, began his career with the Dodgers, then spent time with the Red Sox, before joining the Diamondbacks.


Diamondbacks' Rubby De La Rosa gets off to strong start


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(3/4/2015) Diamondbacks pitcher Rubby De La Rosa got off to a strong start on Wednesday against the Rockies. 

De La Rosa allowed one hit over two scoreless innings. He struck out two during the outing. The 26-year-old was acquired by the club during the offseason, and is expected to compete for a role in the team's rotation this spring. 

De La Rosa posted a 4.43 ERA over 101 2/3 innings last season. 


Diamondbacks' Rubby De La Rosa gets the nod on Wednesday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(3/3/2015) Diamondbacks pitcher Rubby De La Rosa will start on Wednesday when the team takes on the Rockies, according to MLB.com.

De La Rosa was acquired by the team during the offseason, and is expected to compete for a role in the starting rotation. The 25-year-old posted a 4.43 ERA over 101 2/3 innings last season. It's unclear how long De La Rosa will pitch on Wednesday.


Diamondbacks' Rubby De La Rosa, Allen Webster tabbed to start


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(12/12/2014) 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
(12/12/2014) 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
(12/10/2014) 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
(9/21/2014) 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
(9/20/2014) 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


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Long ball leads to early exit for Rubby De La Rosa


by Al Melchior | Data Analyst
(9/7/2014) 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.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Value hard to find among Red Sox rotation candidates


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(8/1/2014) The Red Sox have decided to go all-in on next season, turning the rotation over to a slew of young guys after the trades of Jon Lester and John Lackey prior to the deadline. With so many innings up for grabs, Fantasy owners will want to keep a close eye on how things shake out, especially given the team's abundance of seemingly capable young starters.

Among the group of pitchers expected to get a shot at some point down the stretch are Anthony Ranaudo, Allen Webster, Rubby De La Rosa, Brandon Workman and Joe Kelly. The latter four all have at least some major-league experience, though Ranaudo will get at least a taste of the majors when he debuts Friday against the Yankees. Of these five pitchers, who, if anyone, should Fantasy owners have their eyes on?

For now, it looks like De La Rosa, Ranaudo, Webster, Workman and Clay Buchholz have the next five spots in the rotation locked up, though a spot might open up for Kelly at some point once he reports to the team. De La Rosa, Buchholz and Kelly all have some measure of major-league success under their belts, though none profiles as a high-upside Fantasy option, given their middling track records so far. If upside is to be found, it is likely to come in the form of one of the other options. 

Webster has the best prospect pedigree among the group, and he and Ranaudo probably have the highest ceilings for now. Of course, the obvious caveats about young pitching apply. Though their upside is tantalizing, we simply don't have any record of success at the major-league level to depend on.

The Red Sox don't have a lot of sure things for their long-term rotation, and they will need to use these last few months get an idea of who they can count on next season. The question for Fantasy owners is whether they want their roster to be the team's laboratory during the most important months of the season. 

The young guys in Boston will all get their turns, but there isn't anyone in the rotation right now that screams "must-add," either due to a lack of upside or proven track record. AL-only owners might be smart to take a flier on anyone currently in the team's rotation, but it doesn't look like anyone here is worth consideration in mixed-leagues at this time. 


Rubby De La Rosa takes loss in quality start Tuesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/29/2014) Red Sox pitcher Rubby De La Rosa was stuck with a loss Tuesday, giving up three earned runs on nine hits and two walks in six innings and striking out just one in his team's 4-2 defeat against the Blue Jays.

De La Rosa (3-4) bounced back from an ugly effort in his last start, but he still took his second straight loss after giving up a solo home run in the second inning and a two-run double in the fourth. He owns a 3.64 ERA and 37:16 K:BB ratio in 54 1/3 innings. De La Rosa is scheduled to face the Cardinals next Tuesday.


Rubby De La Rosa chased early


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/24/2014) Red Sox pitcher Rubby De La Rosa entered Thursday's start at Toronto with a 2.64 ERA in seven major-league starts, but he was unable to keep it going. The Blue Jays knocked him around for nine hits and seven runs (six earned) in four innings, though they also benefitted from shoddy defense.

De La Rosa walked two batters and struck out one in what was easily his worst start this year. He'll get another crack at Toronto on Tuesday at Fenway Park.


Rubby De La Rosa not getting enough love


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/21/2014) Maybe it's because the Red Sox wouldn't commit to either him and Brandon Workman for their final rotation spot in the weeks leading up to the All-Star break, but for some reason, Rubby De La Rosa is owned in 38 percent of Fantasy leagues. On talent alone, he deserves better than that.

And now that he's likely secured his rotation spot with seven strong innings against the Royals Saturday, he deserves better on merit as well.

In seven major-league starts this season, he has a 2.64 ERA, 1.08 WHIP and 7.1 strikeouts per nine innings. What more do you need to know than that? True, the strikeout rate could be higher for a player with his skill set, but simply knowing he has that skill set should only accentuate his performance so far.

Not every start has been a gem, but he's pitched seven innings or more in four of them and has mostly avoided the control problems that popped up from time to time in the minors. Plus, he's eligible at relief pitcher if that matters in your format.

Jeff Locke, Tom Koehler, Francisco Liriano and Chris Young are just a few of the starting pitchers owned in more leagues than De La Rosa who aren't as valuable as him in my eyes.
