Jorge De La Rosa Injury Update: Rockies Recall Pitcher From Rehab Assignment

The return of Jorge De La Rosa to a shaky starting rotation is something the Colorado Rockies have been hoping for since his injury last season. However, after experiencing some stiffness in his forearm during a rehab start last week, these are certainly some nervous times for the organization. These worries only intensified today, as Thomas Harding of MLB.com revealed that De La Rosa has been recalled because of the forearm pain and will have a new rehab window:

@harding_at_mlb: have recalled LHP Jorge De La Rosa from rehab assignment because of left forearm tightness.

@harding_at_mlb: After 7 days, LHP Jorge De La Rosa will be placed back on the DL for firearm tightness and will get a new 30-day injury rehab window

@harding_at_mlb: Explanation: De La Rosa was not going to be ready when his rehab window for elbow surgery was set to 5/27, to return to Majors 6/2

De La Rosa began the 2011 season in strong fashion, jumping out to a 5-2 start. However, he was forced to undergo Tommy John surgery following an injury to his elbow. De La Rosa has been rehabbing with the hopes of returning to the Rockies rotation by this Summer.
