Jorge De La Rosa came out after limiting the Blue Jays to one hit over seven scoreless innings on Monday.
De La Rosa, who took a loss in his last start while pitching with a cut on his middle finger, dominated the Blue Jays tonight, allowing one or no runs for the fifth time in his last nine outings. Unfortunately, there was no run support to be had from the Rockies offense, and Colorado ended up losing 2-0.
Troy Renck of the Denver Post suspects that Roy Oswalt will start Thursday against the Nationals.
Oswalt has registered a promising 2.16 ERA, 0.93 WHIP and 25/7 K/BB ratio in 33 1/3 innings at Double-A Tulsa since signing a minor league contract with the Rockies in early May. The veteran right-hander may be worth a try in deeper mixed fantasy formats. He had a 5.80 ERA and 1.53 WHIP in 59 innings last season for the Rangers.
Jhoulys Chacin allowed two runs on six hits over 8 2/3 innings in Sunday's win over the Phillies.
Chacin finished one out away from a complete game in easily his best start of the season. He aggressively attacked the strike zone and the Phillies didn't advance a baserunner past first base on him until the ninth inning. It was a much needed return to form, as Chacin had been struggling over his last seven starts since coming off the DL. He now has a 4.26 ERA and 1.27 WHIP.
Dexter Fowler (finger) went 1-for-4 in his return to the Rockies' starting lineup on Sunday.
Fowler sat out a few games after taking a pitch of his right ring finger on Thursday. The dynamic center fielder is batting .301/.397/.494 with 10 home runs and 12 stolen bases in 65 games this season for Colorado.
