|2013 Regular Season|
De La Rosa pitched six scoreless innings, yielding three hits to a lineup full of has-beens and never-will-bes. Don't assume any fantasy success in the future based on this outing since the Yanks are a shell of themselves at this time.
De La Rosa (2-3, 4.18 ERA) had a 2.86 ERA in his first five starts this season and a 1.88 ERA over his previous four outings.
De La Rosa hasn't given up a run over his last 12 innings while winning his last two starts.
Jeff Manship started in place of De La Rosa, who is Colorado's highest-paid player at $11 million for the 2013 season. De La Rosa may be able to pitch as soon as Sunday against the Milwaukee Brewers in Maryvale. It's the second time in two days that a key member of Colorado's rotation missed a start with a minor injury. Opening Day starter Jhoulys Chacin missed his start Friday after tweaking his back during a workout a day earlier.
Making a comeback from Tommy John surgery, De La Rosa allowed one hit over three innings in 48-degree weather. The left-hander mixed his pitches effectively, using a slider and changeup with his fastball. He retired nine of the 11 hitters he faced. De La Rosa, who turns 32 next month, struggled in three late September starts last season following surgery and again in his first two outings this spring.
