ANAHEIM -- Left-hander Jorge De La Rosa threw a bullpen session on Friday at Angel Stadium in preparation for his next rehab appearance, which is scheduled for Sunday with Triple-A Colorado Springs.
De La Rosa, who has been on the disabled list since April 27 with an injured tendon band in the middle finger of his throwing hand, said his first rehab assignment went well on Wednesday and that his finger feels fine.
"It has no problems," said De La Rosa. "It feels much better. I feel nothing now."
De La Rosa was sharp in his first rehab appearance by tossing four innings and allowing one run on four hits on Wednesday and it certainly impressed Rockies manager Jim Tracy.
"It went very good," Tracy said. "We're just continuing to monitor any ramifications with the finger. That's the most important thing to us right now, but it feels great."
Hawpe day-to-day with bruised ribs
ANAHEIM -- Rockies right fielder Brad Hawpe exited Friday's game against the Angels during the second inning after running into the wall in foul ground while attempting to catch a pop fly hit by Howard Kendrick in the first inning.
Hawpe ran into the padded wall down the right-field line at full speed to try to catch the ball, which ended up in the stands as a foul ball, and bruised his ribs upon colliding with the short fence. He is day-to-day.
Hawpe remained in the game after the incident for the rest of the first inning before being removed for Ryan Spillborghs, who took over in right field in the bottom of the second inning.
"I don't have any update as far as X-rays taken or anything like that, but when he ran into the wall, he hit his rib cage really good," said Rockies manager Jim Tracy. "And when he came in during the half-inning to see if he could swing and rotate and all that, he told [Rockies trainer] Keith [Duggar] he couldn't do it so we had to take him out of the game."
Hawpe struck out in his lone at-bat in the first inning against Angels right-hander Jered Weaver, but it came before his injury.
Rockies' Baylor honored by Angels
ANAHEIM -- Rockies hitting coach Don Baylor was honored by the Angels on Friday in a pregame ceremony. He was inducted as an Angels Hall of Fame member back in 1990.
Baylor, who was the Angels' first American League MVP Award winner in 1979, received an honorary ring and jacket from the Angels before the game.
Baylor was an integral part of the Angels' first two division titles in '79 and '82. In six seasons with the Angels, Baylor batted .262 with 141 home runs and 523 RBIs.
Buchholz's rehab appearance goes well
ANAHEIM -- Rockies manager Jim Tracy said that injured reliever Taylor Buchholz's rehab appearance with Triple-A Colorado Springs went well on Thursday and that he'll continue to rehab there moving forward.
Buchholz, who is on the 60-day disabled list recovering from Tommy John surgery that forced him to miss the 2009 season, threw one perfect inning on Thursday in his first appearance with Colorado Springs since May 25.
"He did extremely well," Tracy said. "As a matter of fact, it took him just six pitches before the inning was over. He checked out very well."
But unlike left-hander Jorge De La Rosa, who is working out with the Rockies in between rehab starts, Buchholz will remain in Triple-A until he's ready to rejoin the Rockies.
Mora dealing with injured thumb
ANAHEIM -- Utility man Melvin Mora, who was clipped on the thumb by a pitch during the Rockies' 13-11 loss to the Red Sox on Thursday, participated in pregame drills on Friday to test out his injured thumb.
"He's going to try and take batting practice and do his thing," Rockies manager Jim Tracy said. "He's sore."
Tracy said Mora was actually fortunate that the ball just clipped his thumb and lifted his finger nail enough to bleed and reduce the pressure.
"It's very good instead of the entire thumb getting sore," Tracy said. "He feels better than anticipated and he'll do our pregame work and we'll see what it is actually he can tolerate and do for us during the course of the game."
