Colorado announces post-break rotation

DENVER -- The Rockies made official their rotation coming out of the All-Star break.

Colorado announced before the break that left-hander Jorge De La Rosa (9-5, 3.21 ERA) would start Friday night against the Cubs, but held off on the rest. Right-hander Juan Nicasio (5-4, 4.89) will start Saturday night and righty Tyler Chatwood (5-3, 2.56) will open Sunday afternoon.

The club did not announce a starter for Monday, but the plan is to recall lefty Drew Pomeranz (0-3, 8.76) from Double-A Tulsa for Monday in the opener of a four-game series against the Marlins. Righty Jhoulys Chacin (9-4, 3.50) will start Tuesday and De La Rosa again Wednesday.
