Rockies SP Jorge De La Rosa becomes team's all-time K leader


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5/21/2015) 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


(5/21/2015) 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
(5/17/2015) 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
(5/17/2015) 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
(5/10/2015) 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.


Dodgers-Rockies game postponed for Saturday


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(5/9/2015) The Dodgers and Rockies game Saturday in Colorado has been postponed with no make up date set, the teams announced.

With poor weather conditions in the area throughout the weekend, the two teams were only able to complete six innings of Friday's game, which became an official final. Los Angeles' scheduled starter Clayton Kershaw will start Sunday's game and Colorado's starter Jorge De La Rosa will also throw on Sunday.


Rockies pitcher Jorge De La Rosa tagged for three runs in loss


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(5/2/2015) Rockies pitcher Jorge De La Rosa allowed three runs on five hits in five innings of work in Colorado's 4-2 loss to the Padres on Saturday.

De La Rosa allowed a run in the first inning when the first three batters reached safely. Then in the fifth, De La Rosa found more issues after putting two men on with one out. Justin Upton ripped an RBI single to center, plating two more runs.

"He looked like himself, threw the ball real well, mixed in some curveballs for strikes to change their eye level and had the rest of his arsenal working," Rockies manager Walt Weiss said to MLB.com.

De La Rosa, now 0-2, ballooned his ERA to 9.00 in 12 innings of work. He will look to get back on track Friday against the Dodgers.


Rockies LHP Jorge De La Rosa has encouraging Saturday start


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/26/2015) Rockies southpaw Jorge De La Rosa certainly made progress Saturday night despite being limited to five innings.

De La Rosa, who was clobbered for seven runs on nine hits in two innings in his 2015 debut Monday after coming off a groin injury, worked his way through give against the Giants. He yielded two runs on four hits with two walks and seven strikeouts. His current 11.57 ERA looks mighty fine compared to the 31.50 with which he entered the game.

"I thought he looked like himself," manager Walt Weiss said after the game, per MLB.com. "He hadn't really been built up all that much, so we were thinking about 90 pitches would be about his max."

The lefty settled down after allowing a run-scoring double to Buster Posey in the first. He yielded one hit in the next two innings and a home run to Andrew Susac in the fourth before escaping a jam in the fifth.

"I feel much better, I was mixing all my pitches pretty good," De La Rosa said. "I stayed in control. More calm and made better pitches today. Kept the ball down. I think that was the key today."

De La Rosa will make his third start of the year Friday against San Diego.


Rockies P Jorge De La Rosa looks to rebound after disastrous first star


by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(4/24/2015) Rockies starting pitcher Jorge De La Rosa got knock around in his first start of the season Monday but says it was just a matter of adjusting his pitch location, reports the Denver Post.

"I left the ball up. I got hit hard. I have to do better," De La Rosa said.

The left hander, who began the season on the disabled list with a groin injury, was tagged for nine runs (seven earned) on nine hits in just two innings in his 2015 debut.

"He was almost too strong," Rockies manager Walt Weiss said. "The velocity was up. He was trying to go harder and harder and the ball kept getting elevated."

Rockies' De La Rosa pins poor season debut on being 'really excited'


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/21/2015) Rockies starting pitcher Jorge De La Rosa made his season debut Monday against the Padres after missing the start of the season due to a groin injury. Unfortunately, it was a forgettable evening for the veteran left-handed pitcher.

De La Rosa was roughed up for nine runs (seven) earned on nine hits and one walk in two innings. 

"He got ambushed there, and I think it made it tougher to find a rhythm, especially after being out for so long," manager Walt Weiss said, per MLB.com.

De La Rosa blames his struggles on perhaps being a little too antsy to finally make his season debut.

"It's my first start," De La Rosa said. "Been pitching in Triple-A, but it's not the same. I was really excited. Hope I can be more calm next time and get better.

"I was overthrowing a lot. Got excited and was trying to throw as hard as I can. You can't make outs if you don't have command. It happened today. My command wasn't good.

"When I tried to throw in, the ball was in the middle. When I tried to throw away, it ran to the middle, too. I think I can fix it. My command wasn't there. I made really bad pitches today, and they hit it really good."

by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com

"Be good to get De La back in the mix at home, where he's done really well," manager Walt Weiss said. "It will add some normalcy to things, especially to our pitching. He's been one of the best pitchers in Rockies history. It'll be good to have him back out there every five days."

De La Rosa will square off against injury fill-in Odrisamer Despaigne, who is 1-0 with a 0.77 ERA in 11 2/3 innings. The Rockies are favorites (-130) in De La Rosa's scheduled debut.

"Physically, I feel good and pitching-wise in the fifth inning I missed my location a little bit, but the homer was a good pitch but the guy was strong," De La Rosa said. "The thing I wanted to work on was my fastball command, and it was good. I mixed that with some cutters and some changeups."
