Rockies Likely To Get de la Rosa

According to Tracy Ringolsby, the Rockies are likely to receive pitcher Jorge de la Rosa from the Royals as the player to be named later in the Ramon Ramirez deal.  The Rox will have him start at Triple A now that he's cleared waivers and accepted his minor league assignment.  He went unclaimed partially because of his $1.025MM salary.

De la Rosa, a southpaw, turns 27 in a few days.  He hit the DL in August with an elbow strain.  He was also affected by a bruised thumb.  His fastball averaged 92.3 mph in '07, not bad for a lefty.
