Jorge De La Rosa

Key numbers

Pitched with Rockies from 2010-2016

Accumulated 11.5 WAR during the decade, per Baseball-Reference.com

First in wins (60)

First in innings pitched (826.1)

Second in strikeouts (664)

Quick thought: The franchise leader in wins with 86, Rockies fans wonder what might have been if De La Rosa hadn’t torn his UCL, forcing him to miss the majority of the 2011 and 2012 campaigns.

Most memorable moment: De La Rosa bounced back from injury in 2013, tying a career-high in wins (16) and posting a career-low ERA of 3.49 in 30 starts.
