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


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10:16 am ET) 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."

He struck out three batters and walked one. De La Rosa's ERA following his first game of the year is now 36.00.

"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.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Christian Bergman will get the call for Tuesday's start against the Giants in San Francisco. De La Rosa's return could come April 20 against the Padres in Colorado.
