D-backs call up De La Rosa, send Skaggs down

Thursday - 7/11/2013, 9:50pm  ET

PHOENIX (AP) -- The Arizona Diamondbacks have recalled left-hander Eury De La Rosa from Triple-A Reno and optioned left-hander Tyler Skaggs to Single-A Visalia.

De La Rosa was 1-4 with a 5.14 ERA and 45 strikeouts in 37 appearances with the Aces this season.

Skaggs pitched eight scoreless innings against Colorado last week after being called up from Reno, but struggled Wednesday night against the Dodgers, allowing three runs and eight hits in 4 1-3 innings.

Skaggs is 2-1 with a 4.03 ERA in five starts with the Diamondbacks this season.

He was sent to Visalia on Thursday to keep him on turn over the All-Star break in case Arizona calls him back up.
