RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
The Red Sox had De La Rosa on a pitch count in spring training, limiting the right-hander who was heading into his first full season since Tommy John surgery in 2011. It was a prudent approach for a pitcher who had never thrown more than 110 innings in a season. He struggled early on at Triple-A Pawtucket and coaches quickly learned De La Rosa needed to learn how to pitch instead of throwing fastballs all the time. Once he started incorporating his secondary stuff and locating his fastball, the results were better. In June, the Red Sox called him up to throw out of the bullpen. He bounced back and forth between Boston and Pawtucket and eventually pitched exclusively out of the bullpen. He's looking at the possibility of staying in the bullpen and could open the 2014 season in Boston.
De La Rosa came back last season after undergoing Tommy John surgery in 2011. He made a handful of appearances in the Dodgers' organization but was shut down after he was included in the deal to acquire Josh Beckett, Carl Crawford and Adrian Gonzalez. He was shut down because the Dodgers could not move De La Rosa until after the season. With Boston, the young righty with the power arm and plus changeup will get a serious audition among the mix of starters competing for the final spot in the rotation during spring training. If he can not harness the fastball command or develop a legitimate third pitch, De La Rosa could be moved to the bullpen as a late-inning reliever, a transition that would likely start at Triple-A Pawtucket.
De La Rosa jumped from Double-A to the big leagues last May, showing flashes of his top-of-the-rotation type ability by averaging 96 mph with his fastball on his way to a 3.71 ERA and 8.90 K/9IP in 60.2 innings. As so often happens with young arms it seems, De La Rosa then got hurt and ultimately underwent Tommy John surgery in early August. It's far from a death sentence given he's just 23, but don't expect to see De La Rosa back on a big league mound until August at best. He's a guy to target in keeper leagues with an eye toward 2013 and beyond.
Named the organization's minor league pitcher of the year, 2011 is shaping up to be De La Rosa's year to burst onto the prospect scene. In 110.1 innings between Low-A and Double-A, De La Rosa posted a 2.37 ERA and 94:38 K:BB while reportedly hitting as high as 102 mph with his fastball. He'll open 2011 in Double-A, but this is a guy to watch in keeper leagues.
