De La Rosa to face A's in extended spring
PITTSBURGH -- Rockies left-handed pitcher Jorge De La Rosa, completing his recovery from Tommy John surgery on his left elbow, will make his first extended spring appearance on Friday against the Athletics.

De La Rosa, 31, was 5-2 with a 3.51 ERA and was the Rockies' best starter last year before suffering the elbow injury in his 10th start. De La Rosa will throw 65-70 pitches in his outing, and if all goes well, the Rockies will consider sending him out on a Minor League rehab assignment.

Left-handed reliever Josh Outman, who suffered a right oblique strain before the start of the season, threw 22 pitches on Tuesday in his first extended spring game, against the Athletics, and gave up just one hit, to Manny Ramirez. His fastball ran 92-94 mph. He'll have a throwing session Thursday, and could begin a rehab assignment during the weekend.
