07:36 AM ET 02.10 | Jorge De La Rosa has been on the rise, and he sees 2014 as a continuation of his breakout seasons. As the unquestioned leader of the Rockies' rotation, he knew last March 9 there was no getting around it. He had to trust his surgically repaired elbow, which left one thing to do: Throw his curveball and slider with conviction. De La Rosa has been breaking bad in a good way ever since that three-inning outing against the Kansas City Royals at Salt River Fields in Scottsdale, Ariz. ... "I have a lot more confidence right now than this time a year ago. I don't feel pain anywhere. It's huge. I am stronger," De La Rosa said last week after his fourth side session at the Rockies' spring training complex. "I plan on being even better and getting us to the playoffs. We have more talent than we did in 2009."

three innings aren't enough to describe yourself as fully ready for the season,got to learn how to walk before doing the running!!
