Saturday Rockpile: Jorge De La Rosa and resting Rockies

New, 101 comments

Two themes from the main stream today: Jorge is not doing well and dinged up Rockies were given time off.

San Francisco is where strange things happen to the Colorado Rockies.  It is why no one should be upset about Walt Weiss giving Troy Tulowitzki and Wilin Rosario the night off before two straight day games to recover from some early season health issues.  Jorge De La Rosa's issues, however, may be a bigger issue...or not since it is just three games.

Thomas Harding writes about last night's game and the fact that Jorge has now had three straight outings where he can't get through the fifth inning.

Troy Renck gives a similar version of last night's game but with an interesting dig at the home plate umpire who may have been trying to finish up the game quickly to get to dinner.

In his smorgasbord of Rockies mini-stories, Thomas Harding talks about Rosario's and Tulowitzki's time off for injuries, Chatwood starting this weekend, and Josh Rutledge seeing a benefit in starting in Colorado Springs this year.

Renck starts his potpourri of stories off similiarly with talks on the two sidelined players, but then mentions Jordan Lyles' extended stay with the big league club and Jhoulys Chacin's rehab.

Anderson hoping for better memories against Giants - mlb.com

Proof that San Fran is not just bad for Rockies, Bret Anderson blame a pitch he threw to Lincecum for throwing his arm out a couple of years ago.

An interesting article about a young pitcher that many drooled over last year.  I like to have a fangraphs piece linked even if it is not about the Rockies, now if we could get Dave Cameron to look at Jorge and figure out what is wrong.
