LOS ANGELES -- Dodgers pitcher Rubby De La Rosa pitched two hitless and scoreless innings with four strikeouts in his second Minor League rehab start Saturday night for Class A Rancho Cucamonga at Lake Elsinore.
De La Rosa, who pitched three scoreless innings last Sunday, was removed early after an extended game delay because home-plate umpire Bryan Fields was injured. He walked one batter.
De La Rosa is recovering from Tommy John elbow reconstruction and is being used as a starting pitcher to rebuild arm strength rather than as a reliever. De La Rosa could be recalled sooner if the Dodgers need a reliever or later if they should need a starter in September.
