Jorge De La Rosa pitches five one-run innings in win Monday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/21/2014) Rockies pitcher Jorge De La Rosa earned a win Monday by giving up just one earned run on five hits and three walks in five innings while striking out five in his team's 8-2 win over the Giants.

De La Rosa (1-3) needed 105 pitches to complete five innings Monday, and it was just the second time this season he made it through five innings. He owns a 6.38 ERA and 25:11 K:BB ratio in 24 innings. De La Rosa is slated to play the Dodgers in Los Angeles Sunday.


Jorge De La Rosa improved, still loses


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(4/17/2014) Rockies pitcher Jorge De La Rosa twirled his best start of the season Wednesday against the Padres, but still came out on the losing side in a 4-2 loss.  

De La Rosa tossed his first quality start in four trips to the mound, allowing three runs -- two earned -- in six innings of work. He scattered seven hits and a walk and struck out four, but still left the game in line for the loss, as the offense had trouble getting going.

De La Rosa is now 0-3 with a 7.58 ERA, after failing to finish five innings in any of his first three starts. He will try to get on the right side of the ledger in his next start, scheduled for Monday against the Giants. 


Jorge De La Rosa gives up big blast in another loss


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(4/12/2014) Rockies starting pitcher Jorge De La Rosa was ultimately undone by his opposing counterpart Friday, in a 6-5 loss to the Giants.

De La Rosa was mostly cruising for the first three innings of his start, allowing just one run and holding on to a 3-1 lead. Unfortunatley, things completely came undone in the fourth, as he was tagged for five runs on two hits, two walks and a hit-by-pitch. The big play came off the bat of Giants starting pitcher Madison Bumgarner, who clubbed a two-out grand slam to essentially end De La Rosa's evening.

De La Rosa was ultimately tagged for six runs on four hits and two walks in 4 1/3 innings of work, while striking out six. He took the loss in the 6-5 final, dropping his record to 0-2.

De La Rosa has lasted just 4 1/3 innings in each of his first three starts, posting a 9.69 ERA in 13 innings of work. He will try to get back on track in his next start, set for Wednesday against the Padres.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Jorge De La Rosa learned to pitch to contact in 2013


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/10/2014) 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."


Jorge De La Rosa brimming with confidence


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/9/2014) Rockies starting pitcher Jorge De La Rosa had a successful return from Tommy John surgery in 2013, going 16-6 with a 3.49 ERA in 30 starts. It was a career year for the veteran left-hander, who feels he could be even better in 2014, according to The Denver Post.

"I have a lot more confidence right now than this time a year ago. I don't feel pain anywhere. It's huge. I am stronger," De La Rosa said. "I plan on being even better and getting us to the playoffs. We have more talent than we did in 2009. I believe in this team."

De La Rosa is entering the final season of a four-year, $42.5 million contract. While he is entering a contract year, De La Rosa said his focus will be on the baseball field.

"I will stay focused, I promise you that. I won't think about it. If they want to talk about contract, OK. If not, that's OK too," De La Rosa said. "I will do my job and win the most games I can. You know how much I love this team. They have been good to me, and my goal is help them win again."
