Rockies activate De La Rosa to start vs. Padres

Denver, CO ( – The Colorado Rockies activated pitcher
Jorge De La Rose from the 15-day disabled list to start against the Padres in
Monday’s opener of a four-game set.

De La Rosa, who signed a two-year contract extension last season, will make
his season debut after missing two weeks with a groin injury.

The left-hander compiled a 14-11 record with a 4.10 earned run average and 139
strikeouts in 32 starts last season.

To make room for De La Rosa, the Rockies optioned pitcher Scott Oberg to
Triple-A Albuquerque.

Oberg was 1-0 and gave up five runs — three earned — on six hits in 2 2/3
innings over three relief appearances.
