The Rockies have re-signed 29-year old lefty starting pitcher Jorge De La Rosa to a 2-year, $21 million dollar deal. The deal includes a player option for 2013 valued at $11 million bucks and a 2014 club option valued also at $11 million bucks. De La Rosa pitched in 20 games (all starts) for the Rockies last season and he was 8-7 with a 4.22 ERA and a 1.32 WHIP. He has now pitched in 81 games (75 starts) in his first three years with the Rockies and he is 34-24 with a 4.49 ERA and a 1.39 WHIP. De La Rosa has pitched in 178 games (116 starts) in his first seven years in the majors and he is 49-47 with a 5.02 ERA and a 1.52 WHIP. He has walked 359 batters while whiffing 630 in 710 2/3 innings in his major league career so far. This is a risky deal for the Rockies as De La Rosa’s career has looked a lot like Oliver Perez’ of the Mets.
