Colorado Rockies C Wilin Rosario (wrist) is out of the lineup Friday, April 11, due to a left wrist strain. Rosario hurt himself sliding Thursday, April 10.

The two had contentious mound visits in a loss in Miami Monday. "I'm going to throw a bullpen (session), and he's going to call all my pitches tomorrow," De La Rosa said.
