De La Rosa expected to be ready for next start

DENVER -- Left-hander Jorge De La Rosa pitched through a small cut on his left middle finger in his last start, a 10-9 Rockies victory over the Padres at Coors Field, but expects to be fine for his start Wednesday night against the Nationals.

De La Rosa (7-3, 3.38 ERA), who has been the Rockies' most consistent pitcher this season, gave up 11 hits and four runs in his last outing, but didn't figure in the decision.

"It's fine -- I didn't have to put anything on it," De La Rosa said. "It's healing."

Just in case De La Rosa can't pitch Wednesday, the Rockies have summoned right-hander Chris Volstad to Denver from Triple-A Colorado Springs, but haven't activated him.
