Colorado Rockies left-hander Jorge De La Rosa will make his first official appearance of the spring when his club takes on the Oakland Athletics in Cactus League play on Friday.

De La Rosa had a couple of starts pushed back as a result of groin tightness before finally pitching in a "B" game last Sunday. The veteran southpaw reported no issues in the game, paving the way for his first Cactus League outing. De La Rosa still has time to get at least two more spring training starts in after today.

Here's the lineup: notables include Troy Tulowitzki, Carlos Gonzalez, Eddie Butler and Wilin Rosario. The latter is in action for the first time since a death in his family pulled him away from the team earlier in the week.

And, for the A's:

The game marks the Rockies' first appearance on ROOT Sports Rocky Mountain this season. The contest will also be available on MLB Network and MLB.tv with 850 KOA and MLB.com carrying the radio feed. First pitch from Salt River Fields is scheduled for 2:10 p.m. MT.
