De La Rosa exits in 6th inning against D-Backs

BY foxsports • April 2, 2011

Colorado left-hander Jorge De La Rosa left Saturday night's game against Arizona with one out in the sixth inning with a blister on the middle finger of his left hand.

With De La Rosa listed as day-to-day, the Rockies' top two pitchers are now dealing with injuries. Ace Ubaldo Jimenez has a cracked cuticle on this right thumb that was the culprit in his shaky debut Friday and could force him to miss his next start.

De La Rosa, who missed two months last year with a freak finger injury, had allowed just three hits with one walk and five strikeouts when he was replaced by Matt Belisle.

He left with Colorado ahead 3-0, and he drove in one of those runs with a single in the fourth inning.
