Arizona's Rubby De La Rosa to rehab his elbow injury

Arizona Diamondbacks pitcher Rubby De La Rosa will attempt to rehab his injured right elbow, rather than undergoing surgery.

What It Means:

De La Rosa is dealing with a strained UCL, and suffered a setback last week. He will attempt a bullpen session on the weekend, and the goal is to return to the team in September.

De La Rosa was having a promising season before the injury, with career-bests in both SIERA (3.64) and strikeout rate (23.90 percent) in 47 2/3 innings pitched.
