Rubby De La Rosa Wins Amica Pitcher Of The Week

Boston Red Sox v Oakland AthleticsBoston Red Sox right-hander Rubby De La Rosa was optioned Saturday to make room on the roster for top prospect Mookie Betts, but he earned Amica Pitcher of the Week honors as a parting gift.

De La Rosa earned the award for his tough-luck no-decision against the Oakland A’s on June 21. He held the red-hot A’s offense to just one run over seven innings, allowing four hits and just one walk while striking out seven. The Sox ultimately lost 2-1 when A’s outfielder Coco Crisp hit a walk-off RBI single off Sox reliever Edward Mujica in the 10th inning.

This likely won’t be the last we see of De La Rosa, as he’s proved his worth as a starter this season. The Sox rotation is simply overcrowded, so it won’t be surprising to see him back in the majors if that changes.
