Rockies left-hander Jorge De La Rosa made the easiest of easy decisions on Wednesday, exercising a player option that will pay him $11 million in 2013.
This according to the Rockies’ Twitter feed.
De La Rosa made only three starts this season and just 10 starts the season before due to Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery. But he’s back near full strength and will try to return to form next summer.
In exercising the player option, the 31-year-old triggered an $11 million club option for the 2014 season. De La Rosa will have to be effective — and healthy — if he wants that picked up. The native of Mexico currently owns a 4.96 career ERA and a 1.50 career WHIP.
