Rubby (RDLR)- one of the hottest and fastest rising SP prospects just got promoted to AA. He was scheduled to pitch the second game of today's twinbill.
If he does well in AA look fo r him to shoot up in the top 10 prospect category..two plus pitches..good command..yep that is hard to believe..with our pitchers..esp the command part.
Also throws 100 mph as RP and mid 90s as SP...nice..
check out thread..and his stats..De la Rosa Receives Gem of a Promotion Loons Add Lefty Christenson By Brad Golder / Great Lakes Loons 07/23/2010 2:32 PM ET Print E-mail
The Great Lakes Loons, in conjunction with the Los Angeles Dodgers, announce the promotion of flame-throwing right-handed pitcher Rubby de la Rosa from the Loons to Double-A Chattanooga. In his place, the Loons have added left-hander Ryan Christenson.
De la Rosa, who has repeatedly hit triple-digits on the radar gun in 2010, was set to start the second game of today's doubleheader. He was 4-1 with a 3.19 ERA and six saves in 14 appearances (five starts). The 21-year-old right-hander from the Dominican Republic limited Midwest League opponents to a .223 average, striking out 55 to just 17 walks.
He began the season as the primary reliever for starter Elisaul Pimentel, racking up six saves. All of his saves were in stints of two innings or more and five of his saves came in appearances of three innings or more. Since joining the rotation permanently after the all-star break, de la Rosa has allowed just five earned runs over 27 innings (3-0, 1.67 ERA, .165 average against).
