After a decent 2010 campaign, the man started the year 5 – 2 – with a 3.51 ERA and a 1.186 WHIP in 2011 . The team also started the 1st month atop of the Division – with the man from Mexico starting the campaign 4 – 0.
2012 was a complete write off for De La Rosa as he recovered from his injury.
De La Rosa came into camp this year with a renewed sense of vigor. The organization was hopeful for some contributions from him, although anything would be a bonus. The Rockies did finish last in the NL West – with a 64 – 98 Record last season.
The effect of throwing at Coors Field has ruined many of Careers – although De La Rosa doesn’t really seem to mind throwing there.
In 49 Game Starts, the Right Handed Pitcher is 27 – 11 with a respectable 4.45 ERA and a 1.38 WHIP at Coors Field. Contrast to popular belief, you can be a decent Pitcher in this park, if you put up normal numbers.
De La Rosa was part of the club that came flying out of the gate at 13 – 3. The team has since dropped to 20 – 18, but it has nothing to do with De La Rosa’s pitching. He has been wicked. The man has a 2.98 ERA this season. If he keeps this up, the club will want to pick up the 2014 Team Option on the 32 Year Old.
Or if the club falls out of contention, De La Rosa could prove to be a great Trade Deadline Bargaining chip for a team in contention.
