Rockies Reach Agreement With De La Rosa
By Ben Nicholson-Smith [November 29, 2010 at 10:38pm CST]

10:38pm: The Rockies will pay De La Rosa $32-33MM over three years, according to Rosenthal (on Twitter). Renck says the Rockies and De La Rosa have an agreement in principle, though there is still some question about whether the lefty prefers two or three years.

9:06pm: It's a big day for the Rockies. Not only are they nearing a mega-deal with their All-Star shortstop, they're close to a three-year contract with Jorge de la Rosa, according to Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports (on Twitter). De La Rosa and teammate Troy Tulowitzki are both represented by TWC Sports.

Rosenthal reported earlier tonight that the Nationals also made De La Rosa an offer. The Pirates, Orioles, Rangers, Brewers and Yankees also had some interest in Type A free agent. The Rockies would have obtained two compensation picks had De La Rosa signed elsewhere.

Now that De La Rosa, Ted Lilly, Hiroki Kuroda, Javier Vazquez, Jon Garland and Jake Westbrook have signed deals, there's not much left on the starting pitching market other than Cliff Lee and Carl Pavano. As MLBTR's Tim Dierkes explained earlier today, many teams could be looking to add starters.



I like De la Rosa, but I'm not sure this is a great signing for the Rox. There are rumours about an opt out clause after the 2nd year for DLR, which would make this an even better deal for him.

I think this guy has great stuff and when he's on, he's God. But when he's off, he's Daniel Cabreraesque. He isn't the healthiest of guys either.

The losers on this deal are whichever teams don't land Lee. DLR was clearly the 2nd best guy of the bunch IMO.

This is a surprise. They have more SP depth than most so I didn't think they would spend the dollars to keep him. Hope this works out for them.

looks like there's a player option on the 3rd year and a club option for a 4th year. not many situations where both of those get picked up so it seems kinda meh for the rockies.

:-L :-L :-L That is some sick young pitching depth. Though you gotta wonder if the Rox are planning to deal Brothers/Rogers+someone else for a young 1B to succeed Helton.

I can't believe DLR makes 10+ a year.

Nice deal.
Basically just a 2y 21.5mil deal for a good pitcher who isn't the finished product IMO.

Contrast to that other unwieldy behemoth they just signed. !+)
