BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2011 Converted outfielder Wilkin De La Rosa impressed the Yankees with 94-mph heat in a breakout 2009 season, but nosediving strikeout rates and skyrocketing walk rates rendered him ineffective in a repeat campaign in Double-A. Dropped from the 40-man, De La Rosa hooked on with the Dodgers, who hope he left his wildness and apparent fondness for injecting more promising prospects with B-12 in Trenton.
2010 Former outfielder De La Rosa has taken a right-fielder's arm and applied it to pitching, with a good low-to-mid-90s fastball. His story is the same as it ever was: his command and secondary pitches reflect his late conversion, and have yet to reach the same level as his fastball. Even though same-side hitters have found him difficult, he's still too wild to use as a spot reliever. He might be that unusual creature, a lefty long man. In yet another example of the wonderful things Trenton can do for a pitcher, De La Rosa had a 2.27 ERA at home, 5.14 on the road.
2009 Former outfielder Wilkin de la Rosa leveraged his powerful left arm into a pitching career, where a blazing fastball ensured success in his first full year on the mound; he’ll have to refine his secondary offerings to avoid the bullpen at higher levels.
