31-year old lefty starting pitcher Jorge De La Rosa has exercised his 2013 player option worth $11 million bucks. De La Rosa only pitched in 3 games (all starts) for the Rockies last year and he was 0-2 with a 9.28 ERA and a 1.78 WHIP. He missed most of last season while he was rehabbing from Tommy John Surgery. De La Rosa has now pitched in 94 games (88 starts) in his first five years with the Rockies and he is 39-28 with a 4.48 ERA and a 1.37 WHIP. De La Rosa is #9 in games started (88), tied for #6 in wins (39) and he is #6 in strikeouts (492) in Colorado Rockies’ history. The Rockies need all of the help that they can get in the starting rotation for 2013, so they hope that De La Rosa can stay healthy.
