De La Rosa slated for first rehab outing
SAN FRANCISCO -- Ted Lilly will have company on his Sunday rehab assignment: Rubby De La Rosa.

The 23-year-old who underwent Tommy John elbow reconstruction will follow Lilly's two-inning start for Class A Rancho Cucamonga with his first official game appearance, signaling he also could return to the club in August, manager Don Mattingly indicated.

De La Rosa showed flashes of brilliance last year after a May 24 callup, only to blow out his elbow and undergo surgery Aug. 9 with a 4-5 record and 3.71 ERA.
