Rubby De La Rosa was living his dream. Reared in poverty by his grandmother in the Dominican Republic, he was pitching in the major leagues. He looked like a star in the making, armed with a 100-mph fastball and a quiet confidence.
Now, De La Rosa said he fears everything could be taken away from him. The 22-year-old rookie right-hander will undergo Tommy John surgery to reconstruct a partially torn ligament in his elbow.
"I have to make it back," De La Rosa said Tuesday.
Trainer Stan Conte said De La Rosa could be sidelined anywhere from 10 to 16 months.
"With everything that we've been through this year, this is probably as tough as any one of them because it does dramatically affect the off-season for the next year," General Manager Ned Colletti said.
Until the Dodgers learned of the results of the MRI exam De La Rosa underwent on Monday, they figured they had accounted for four of the five spots in their rotation. Clayton Kershaw, Chad Billingsley, Ted Lilly and De La Rosa
