Left-hander Jorge De La Rosa
has a “strong chance” of making
his season debut for the Colorado Rockies this week, reports Troy Renck
“There’s a strong chance he
will start for us, but I don’t know when until I hear from the training staff,”
manager Jim Tracy said Sunday.
De La Rosa last appeared for the Rockies on May 24 of
2011. His season ended after he
underwent elbow surgery.
The 31-year-old has been rehabbing in the minors, as he’s
made seven starts between four levels of the Rockies’ farm system. Over 20 1/3 innings pitched, De La Rosa has
maintained an ERA and WHIP of 6.64 and 1.770.
De La Rosa is making $10 million this season and his
contract includes an $11 million player option for 2013. His health and productivity could play a
large role in determining the Rockies’ success next year. Over four seasons with the Rockies he’s
maintained an ERA and WHIP of 4.38 and 1.362.
