Jorge De La Rosa Contract Details Released

The details and specifics around Rockies pitcher Jorge De La Rosa's contract  have now been released, giving us a look into the make up of the deal

The Rockies have also agreed in principle on a deal that secures Jorge De La Rosa's return, pending a physical. It is a two-year, $21.5 million contract with a player option that, if exercised, guarantees De La Rosa $32 million. If the left-hander forgoes free agency and exercises the option, the Rockies receive a fourth-year club option for $11 million.

The Rockies were able to get De La Rosa for three years as opposed to the 4 year deal that he was seeking by upping the yearly amount. Locking up De La Rosa provides Colorado with the final piece of their 2011 rotation, a unit that, if healthy, has the talent to take the club back to the postseason for the third time in five seasons.
