Jorge De La Rosa misses start with tight forearm
Colorado Rockies left-hander Jorge De La Rosa missed his
scheduled start against the San Diego Padres on Saturday night
because of a tight left forearm.
Jeff Manship started in place of De La Rosa, who is Colorado’s
highest-paid player at $11 million for the 2013 season. De La Rosa
may be able to pitch as soon as Sunday against the Milwaukee
Brewers in Maryvale.
It’s the second time in two days that a key member of Colorado’s
rotation missed a start with a minor injury. Opening Day starter
Jhoulys Chacin missed his start Friday after tweaking his back
during a workout a day earlier but is expected to pitch two innings
in a relief role against the Padres.
