According to Sean McAdam of CSNNE.com, Red Sox manager John Farrell announced after tonight’s game that Rubby De La Rosa will be called up from Triple-A Pawtucket to take Clay Buchholz‘s spot in the rotation and start against the Rays.
De La Rosa was acquired from the Dodgers in 2012 in the deal that sent Adrian Gonzalez, Josh Beckett, and Nick Punto to Los Angeles. The 25-year-old has pitched well at the Triple-A level this season, putting up a 3.04 ERA and 52/23 K/BB ratio in 53 1/3 innings over 10 starts.
De La Rosa made one relief appearance with the Dodgers in 2012 and 11 with the Red Sox last year, but this will be his first start in the majors since his rookie season in 2011. The hard-throwing right-hander compiled a 3.71 ERA and 60/31 K/BB ratio in 60 2/3 innings that year prior to undergoing Tommy John surgery.
