BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2014 Due to publishing agreements, the 2014 player comments and team essays are only available in the Baseball Prospectus 2014 book (available in hardcopy, e-book, and Kindle).
2013 After undergoing Tommy John surgery in June 2011, De La Rosa had a long road back to the big leagues. He made a few rehab starts in May and June but was shut down as a precautionary measure because of “forearm tightness.” In September, he reached 94 mph with his fastball during a rehab start and said, “I am throwing normal, throwing all my pitches. I am feeling strong with no pain. I am ready.” De La Rosa's three starts for the big club were horrible, but at least he was out there. He has given the Rockies 13 starts and a 4.39 ERA for $19.5 million during the first two years of a contract that culminates in an $11 million player option for 2013.
2012 De la Rosa's season lasted 50 pitches into his 10th start, at which point he blew out his left elbow. De la Rosa, who has worked more than 130 innings just once over parts of eight seasons, isn't expected back until June at the earliest. It has become trendy in recent years to believe that Tommy John surgery is a miracle cure for ailing pitchers, but no procedure is without risk. Even if it works, command (never de la Rosa's strong suit) is often the last thing to return. Still, the odds are on his side, although that's easier to say when you aren't the one doing the rehab.
2011 A torn flexor band on his left middle finger cost De La Rosa May and June, but otherwise, he did a fine job of following up his 2009 breakout campaign, posting a 3.56 ERA over his last 14 starts and increasing his ground-ball rate. The secret to his success in Colorado has been backing off his curveball in favor of more sliders and changups, the latter of which is roughly 10 mph slower than his mid-90s heater (he was just one of five left-handed starters to average more than 93 mph with his fastball in 2010), and both of which result in his helpful mix of strikeouts and grounders. The wishful thinking department would have De La Rosa reduce his walk rate (an average of 4.0 per nine innings over the last four seasons) and also asks for health—his new contract represents a considerable gamble given that he has only made more than 23 starts in a season or thrown more than 130 innings once in the majors.
2010 A former baseball vagabond, De La Rosa has floated through five, six, or seven organizations, depending on whether you count Mexican League outfits, and whether being acquired by "Grover Cleveland" Garagiola on two non-consecutive occasions makes Arizona count as one or two. Through it all he’s consistently flashed swing-and-miss stuff, with mid-90s lefty heat and three solid off-speed offerings, but something’s clicked for him in Colorado. Projected to help out at the back of the rotation, De La Rosa had a breakout year, striking out more than a batter per inning, lowering his walk rate, and going 4-0 with a 2.97 ERA during the Rockies’ stretch run. While not a devoted worm-killer like the other Rockies starters, De La Rosa gets more ground balls than some, and the Rockies have wisely protected his arm with low inning and pitch counts in his first full season in the rotation. It looks like his talent has finally translated to production, and his wanderin’ days are through.
2009 Acquired from the Royals at the end of April, it was hoped de la Rosa would shore up the back of the rotation. He did, but it took a while; he was downright awful initially, allowing 25 runs over 23 innings in his first five starts. From there he moved back and forth from the bullpen to the rotation and slowly came around, finishing the year back in a starting role and going 5-2 with a 2.61 ERA in his last eight outings. It's not like the guy is without stuff—he can get his fastball up to 96 mph at times—but he's found more success using a low-90s cutter to complement his slider in his quiver of off-speed offerings. The Rockies are optimistic that they might be onto something here, and de la Rosa will compete for the fifth starter's job this spring.
2008 Nine starts into the 2007 season, de la Rosa looked like he had swapped arms with David Wells, pitching to contact (just 12 walks and 30 Ks in 58 innings) and generally getting guys out (3.59 ERA). He reverted to form after that, surrendering 42 walks and 15 homers in 72 innings the rest of the way, posting an ERA a staggering four runs higher. As we wrote last year, de la Rosa's future is likely as a power reliever. As such, even a slight uptick in his velocity and command could pay huge dividends.
2007 De la Rosa is a hard-throwing Mexican lefty; arms like this don`t grow on trees. He was a worthwhile flyer to take in exchange for three months of Tony Graffanino`s career. He simply doesn`t throw enough strikes to survive in a starting rotation. The Royals seem committed to proving that point experimentally; the sooner they accept the inevitable and give him a shot at being a power lefty out of the pen, the better.
2006 He was out of options coming into 2005, which put him on the staff despite obvious questions of whether he could handle it. He didn`t, as the subtleties of a situational role seemed lost on him as he failed to torch lefty hitters with his mid-90s heat. Certain truths about life on this planet involve bilateral symmetry, reproduction (sex not required), and the constant demand for lefty relief help. Mr. de la Rosa racks up enough strikeouts to keep the Brewers interested, at least until they`ve decided what Dana Eveland`s role will be.
2005 Once labeled the "Mexican John Rocker" by former Red Sox GM Dan Duquette, who had signed de la Rosa out of the Mexican League at age 19. He was one of the main pieces of the Curt Schilling and Richie Sexson trades. His bad boy persona has faded the past two seasons as he focused on getting his mid-90s fastball to the major leagues. He spent the majority of 2004 pitching at Triple-A, posting a solid strikeout rate but a mediocre ERA, thanks to inconsistent control and a propensity to give up the long ball. He managed to get a big league call-up, but the 14 walks and only five strikeouts wasn't the first impression he was hoping for. The Brewers still like his arm, and he'll be given a chance to win a spot in the bullpen during spring training.

BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2013-04-23 13:00:00 (link to chat)This deal just went down in our 12 team mixed keeper league. Team 1 is the commishiner, team 2 a new team. Team 1 Josh Johnson and Ian Kinsler Team 2 David Price, Jorge De La Rosa and Matt Carpenter Fair?
(Dave from Miami)
Not a fantasy guy, but I'm not outraged by either side. Please ask again in one of our fantasy chats, though.

By the way, on things I actually do write, a quick plug for today's article on my favorite names discovered on the rosters of the independent Atlantic League. Ian Snell, Hayden Penn, Vladimir Guerrero, Adam Greenberg and many more.

http://www.baseballprospectus.com/article.php?articleid=20323 (Zachary Levine)
2010-10-20 13:00:00 (link to chat)Typing this lefty (but not as well as Clif Lee!) -- Do you see the Mariners going after Jorge De La Rosa this offseason, they need another good pitcher even with the putrid offense.
(broken wrist from right arm)
Man, I did a similar thing when I was 16, broke my left thumb playing baseball and had a cast on up to my elbow for forever. There was one upside, which is that I got very good at unsnapping bras with one hand, a skill that has not deserted me to this day. Is that TMI? As for the Mariners, you can't fix their problems with one hand, or two hands and a shovel. I've always liked de la Rosa, but I'm not sure that his wildness will play real well in the DH league. The M's could be signing on for Daisuke Matsuzaka-West, and in any case until they fix their historically-miserable offense, I'm not sure that any pitcher can help them. They have a long, long road ahead. (Steven Goldman)
2010-10-25 13:00:00 (link to chat)What do you do if you are Doug Melvin??? Fielder isn't going to bring back much, but you are still 1 guy short in that Rotation with Wolf and Gallardo...Who do you sign, outside of Lee who will probably headed to the Yankees?
(JT from MKE)
I think you have to invest in at least one of the upside risk kids--Harden or Vazquez and the like--and Jorge De La Rosa as well. Because speaking of defense-minded choices, while I think getting Rickie Weeks off second base would be a favor this or any pitching staff would appreciate, you may as well adapt to that awful right-side infield defense by gunning for strikeout guys in the rotation. (Christina Kahrl)
2009-10-13 14:00:00 (link to chat)Let's assume for arguments sake that O'Down lets Marquis walk, trades Hawpe for a prospect and non tenders Atkins. That would free up nearly $20MM for 2010. Where would you spend that money? I guess 2B is an obvious upgrade spot, but beyond that, I'm not sure O'Dowd could spend that amount money effectively in free agency. Maybe they could allocate it to the draft and Venezuala?
(Dan from Denver)
It's never that simple. Betancourt's on the books for next season if they pick up his option, so that's a big chunk of change ($5+ million). Huston Street's arb-eligible, so is Jorge De La Rosa and Chris Iannetta and Ryan Spilborghs; all will get raises. Tulo's salary goes up a couple of million; so does Jeff Francis' and Manny Corpas'. I wouldn't be surprised if they don't go big-game hunting, beyond seeing what they might get out of a Hawpe deal, whether win-now help or a prospect with near-term value on the big-league team. (Christina Kahrl)
2009-08-04 14:00:00 (link to chat)But don't you want a home-heavy second half? I know it might chew up your arms a bit, but home field advantage is still pretty huge, innit?
(Ari Collins from Boston)
Traditionally, yes, but winning at home hasn't been a stumbling block to Rockies' success. So much of their early success this season is from their having gotten extraordinary work out of Jason Marquis and Jason Hammel; Hammel's lost steam, but Jorge De La Rosa's rattled off six straight quality starts (getting back up off the floor typing that), and Marquis has a six-pack of his own in his last half-dozen starts. If Marquis doesn't wilt, not only will he have people wondering if putting him in the ASG wasn't earned after all, it'll put the Rockies into October. (Christina Kahrl)
