Latest Update Jorge De La Rosa improved to 14-11 after giving up no runs on two hits and two walks with three strikeouts over six innings in a lopsided victory against the Dodgers on Wednesday. Wed Sep, 17, 07:28 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.
De La Rosa lowered his season era to 4.14 to go with a 1.22 WHIP. Unlike most starters for the Rockies, De La Rosa has pitched drastically better at home this season going 9-2 with a 3.30 ERA against 4-9 with a 5.24 ERA on the road. His next start will be on the road against the Padres.Analyst: Jonathan Impemba
We can only wonder how good De La Rosa would be in a different home ballpark with a better team behind him. He has a rough matchup at home against the Dodgers next week. Analyst: Steve Pimental
De La Rosa has been toeing the line of mediocrity for some time now and it's getting a little tough to even consider using him for streaming starts. His K:BB has dropped significantly over these last four starts and he's failed to pitch out of the sixth in two of them. He's got a tough match-upon the road in St. Louis next week so you are probably going to want to keep him on the bench.Analyst: Howard Bender
De La Rosa has the potential to be a good pitcher in both reality, and in fantasy baseball. He is a pitcher you would want to target in drafts next year towards the end of the draft.Analyst: Colby Conway
