Rubby De La Rosa Pulled From Double A Start; Promotion Imminent?

Rubby De La Rosa was pulled after just two innings on Saturday night in Carolina. Is he on his way to join the Dodgers?

Rubby De La Rosa was pulled from his start Saturday night with the Double A Chattanooga Lookouts after just two innings in Raleigh against the Carolina Mudcats. De La Rosa was not injured, and had struck out five of the seven batters he faced, allowing just one hit. Nothing has yet been announced by the Dodgers, but Chattanooga broadcaster Larry Ward speculated during the game broadcast that De La Rosa was on his way somewhere, either to Triple A Albuqerque or to join the Dodgers on their current road trip.

It seems unlikely that they would pull De La Rosa mid-start just for a promotion to Triple A, and alternatively general manager Ned Colletti has said De La Rosa if he is called up would be to start rather than pitch in relief. As of this afternoon, no current Dodger starter has a reported injury, and Jon Garland, though he was tagged for 11 hits in 3 2/3 innings today, said nothing afterward about any injury.

In eight starts with the Lookouts this season, De La Rosa has a 2.93 ERA and 52 strikeouts against 19 walks in 40 innings. The 22-year old was the 2010 Dodgers minor league pitcher of the year. More news on De La Rosa's ultimate location as the story develops.
