Jorge de la Rosa was signed by scout Oswaldo Alvarez for the Arizona Diamondbacks in March 1998. He made his pro debut for the DSL Diamondbacks that summer.

On May 21, 2015, he became the all-time strikeout leader for the Colorado Rockies, passing Ubaldo Jimenez, when he recorded his 774th strikeout in a Rockies uniform in a game against the Philadelphia Phillies. On June 14th, he added the career win mark to his resumé by beating the Miami Marlins, 4-1, for his 73rd victory with Colorado. Aaron Cook had previously held the record.

De la Rosa also holds the record for the most career wins at Coors Field. Entering the 2016 season, he had 48 wins at the notoriously pitcher-hostile ballpark, 12 more than anyone else.
