Jorge De La Rosa has been recalled from his rehab stint due to left forearm tightness, according to Thomas Harding:

De La Rosa began his rehab stint with the Modesto Nuts at the start of May and moved up to Double-A after two starts there. His first start for Tulsa came just one week ago, but an onslaught of singles, doubles, and a triple ended his outing after one inning and four runs allowed. That and some forearm tightness.

De La Rosa said he felt all right on Friday, just one day after he threw four innings of one-run ball.

Harding explains what is going on:

So, basically, the team needed to claim a new injury in order to get more time for De La Rosa as he makes his way back from injury. The forearm tightness, however, is a legitimate issue for De La Rosa.
