The Colorado Rockies have placed 35-year old lefty starting pitcher Jorge De La Rosa on the 15-day disabled list due to a strained left groin. De La Rosa has pitched in 5 games (all starts) for the Rockies so far this year and he is 1-3 with a 10.18 ERA and a 2.07 WHIP. He has given up 30 hits (7 homers) and 12 walks while whiffing 28 batters in his first 20 1/3 innings this year, as he was getting hit really hard this year. The Rockies have recalled 25-year old righty starter/reliever Eddie Butler to replace De La Rosa on the pitching staff. Butler pitched in relief last night for the Rockies in his 2016 debut, as he worked 2 1/3 innings allowing 2 hits, 1 run (it was earned) and he didn’t walk any batters while whiffing 4 of them. Butler pitched in 19 games (all starts) in his first two years with the Rockies and he is 4-11 with a 6.04 ERA and a 1.83 WHIP.
