The Colorado Rockies got some bad news on Tuesday, as Jorge De La Rosa will miss the NLDS vs. the Phillies because of an injured groin.
“Our medical people had been working on him over the last couple days and his groin is about the same as it was when we had to remove him from the game Saturday night in Los Angeles,” Rockies manager Jim Tracy said.
De La Rosa had a horrible start to the season as he lost his first six decisions, but managed to win 16 games after June 1, finishing 16-9 with a 4.38 ERA. Furthermore, he was the only left-handed starter in the Rockies rotation that must face a potent and lefty-heavy Phillies lineup.
Tracy said it was possible De La Rosa could return for the NLCS. But that doesn’t bode well for a team already facing an uphill battle against the defending champions.
