Latest Update Yankees are in discussions with Rockies involving Jorge De La Rosa Thu Jul, 24, 11:29 PM
Pounds hitters inside with his fastball, and then throws them off-balance with a strong curveball. He's especially tough against left-handed hitters. Can rack up strikeouts.
Flaws: : He's prone to bouts of wildness and needs to develop greater control in order to thrive as a starter. Also needs to continue working on his stamina and avoid injuries.
This is kind of scary, but De La Rosa could fall into that Brandon McCarthy category. The Yankees are making a playoff push and could use some starting pitching help, so De La Rosa makes a lot of sense. He is just one of the many names that could be on the move in the next week.Analyst: David Kerr
Make that three straight starts where De La Rosa has held his opponent to one earned run. The clear cut leader of the Rockies rotation De La Rosa is now 11-6 with a 4.19 ERA. Jorge will hope to improve upon his stellar July in his next start when the Rockies are in Chicago to face the Cubs.Analyst: Jonathan Impemba
De La Rosa hasn't lost in his last five starts (4-0) following Friday's no-decision. JDLR has limited his opponents to two or fewer runs in each of his last three outings, but with little to no strikeout upside he is more of an NL-only own at this point. His next start will be at home on Wednesday against Stephen Strasburg and the Nationals.Analyst: Michael Pichan
Boy, that's quite a fearsome trio, right? Fearsome if you own them, that is. While JDLR has 10 wins on the season, his 4.56 ERA and 1.31 WHIP pretty much say it all. And he's probably considered the best option off the three. Doh!Analyst: Howard Bender
