Rookie starting pitcher Rubby De La Rosa was placed on the disabled list by the Dodgers Monday, and he may have thrown his last pitch of the season. The Dodgers announced that De La Rosa has a sprained ulnar-collateral ligament in his throwing elbow. The club passes along that he's "weighing options and determining course of treatment." Surgery is a possibility. The UCL surgery is commonly known as Tommy John surgery.
De La Rosa, 22, entered the season as a relatively highly-regarded prospect for the Dodgers and was promoted to the bigs in late May. He's shown flashes of his high upside while struggling with control at times. He is 4-5 with a 3.71 ERA and 1.40 WHIP in 60 2/3 innings.
