Rockies' Jorge De La Rosa exercises 2013 option

Thearon W. Henderson

De La Rosa was the only MLBer with a player option for 2013.

Colorado Rockies left-hander Jorge De La Rosa has exercised his $11 million player option for the 2013 season, the team has announced:

De La Rosa, 31, missed all but the final two weeks of the 2012 season recovering from Tommy John surgery undergone in May 2011. The left-hander made three starts in late September, posting a 9.28 ERA in ten and two-thirds innings, not once making it beyond the fourth inning.

Given De La Rosa’s recent injury history and his struggles upon returning, it seems likely the Rockies would have declined his 2013 option had they any say in the matter. With the left-hander exercising his player option for next season, the Rockies now have an $11 million club option on De La Rosa for 2014.

De La Rosa owns a 4.48 ERA and 8.7 K/9 in five seasons with Colorado, only once managing an ERA under 4.00.
