De La Rosa is a late-blooming outfielder who transferred from San Jose State and laid waste to the California JC circuit this spring, batting .434 with 14 home runs, 60 RBIs and 24 stolen bases. De La Rosa has a long, lean, athletic physique at 6-foot-4, 175 pounds and shows hints of all five tools. He is an above-average runner with long strides who glides to balls in center field, where he should stick in pro ball. He shows plus raw power, runs the bases well and has an average arm. The concern about De La Rosa is he feasted on poor pitching and he showed a propensity to expand the strike zone when faced with better velocity. Scouts who like De La Rosa see a player whose tools keep getting better and think he could grow into an everyday regular with 20 homers and 20 stolen bases. Others are skeptical of his age and competition level and think he'll run into trouble hitting in the low minors.
