Rockies Vs. Giants: Jorge De La Rosa Roughed Up In First Start Since 2011

Pitcher Jorge De La Rosa got his first major league start for the Colorado Rockies since 2011, against the San Francisco Giants on Thursday, and as expected, looked extremely rusty. After Tommy John surgery, De La Rosa was held out by the team for most of 2011 and a good chunk of 2012, finally being removed from the disabled list after a couple of rehab starts at the lower levels.

He wasn't expected to light AT&T Park up on Thursday afternoon, but got pretty roughed up before Jim Tracy finally pulled him out of the game.

De La Rosa's final stat line had him throwing 70 pitches in 3 innings, with 40 of them going for strikes. He allowed six runs on seven hits with a walk and a strikeout. The first three innings actually went alright for De La Rosa, allowing a single run in both the first and third. In the fourth inning, he lost it and allowed the Giants four more before getting yanked.

Currently in the sixth inning, Guillermo Moscoso is pitching for the Rockies as they try and overcome an 8-2 deficit.
