De La Rosa has biceps tightness during rehab start

Rockies left-handed pitcher Jorge De La Rosa was scheduled to fly to Denver on Saturday to have his left biceps check after tightness in the area flared during an injury rehab start in Salt Lake City on Friday night.

Head athletic trainer Keith Dugger said he was not alarmed by the latest issue with De La Rosa, who is returning from Tommy John surgery on his left elbow. Last month, the Rockies halted De La Rosa’s rehab assignment because of forearm tightness, something that often flares during a return from elbow surgery.

De La Rosa gave up four runs and five hits in 3 1/3 innings of Triple-A Colorado Springs’ 6-5 loss to Salt Lake. De La Rosa struck out three, walked one and totaled 62 pitches, 36 strikes.

“I don’t know [the extent of the problem] because I haven’t seen him yet, but it’s just tightness,” Dugger said. “It’s probably inflamed somewhere right around the elbow. We’ll see how it is.”

Through two starts of his current rehab assignment, De La Rosa has a 9.45 ERA. More to come on www.coloradorockies.com .
