Rockies pitcher Jorge De La Rosa will start Thursday night for Class A Modesto in his first injury rehab assignment as he completes his return from Tommy John surgery on his left elbow.
Left-hander Josh Outman, currently out with a right oblique strain, has had two strong one-inning rehab performances, one with Class A Modesto and the other with Triple-A Colorado Springs. Outman will join Double-A Tulsa for appearances on Thursday and Friday, take two days off, then rejoin Colorado Springs for a two-inning appearance at Memphis, according to Rockies head athletic trainer Keith Dugger.
Rockies right-hander Jeremy Guthrie, out with a bruised right shoulder, played catch at up to 200 feet before Tuesday's game. It was his second catch session since suffering an injury on Friday when he fell off his bicycle. Guthrie said before the session that his shoulder was sore but is improving. He is eligible to return May 8.
