The Colorado Rockies defeated the San Francisco Giants yesterday, but they lost left-handed starting pitcher Jorge De La Rosa in the process. The southpaw was forced to exit the contest in the seventh inning due to a bruised thumb on his left hand, according to Thomas Harding of MLB.com. Harding notes that the thumb issue has been lingering for De La Rosa, as it’s impacted him during his last three starts. It would be hard to tell that he was having any problems, considering the impressive results he’s turned in over that span. De La Rosa continued this success yesterday, as he held the Giants to one run on six hits and one walk with four strikeouts. Still, the thumb was giving him enough trouble that he was lifted from the game after being examined by Colorado’s training staff prior to the start of the seventh frame. The injury occurred on June 17 during a contest against the Toronto Blue Jays. De La Rosa later said the pain intensified during yesterday’s start, specifically in the second inning when he bunted against Giants’ Matt Cain. During that sequence his thumb was bent back. Colorado can only hope that De La Rosa won’t be required to miss an extended period as a result of the injury. More will come out regarding his status in the coming days. On the season, the 32-year-old has posted an ERA and WHIP of 3.09 and 1.283 over 17 starts. Follow @mlbinjurynews Looking for fantasy baseball advice?
