PEORIA, ARIZ. (AP) - Colorado Rockies ace Ubaldo Jimenez has been scratched from his scheduled start against San Diego because of a nail infection on his pitching hand.
Jimenez had been slated to make his second start of the spring Wednesday. A team official said the right-hander had been treated and was feeling OK.
Jimenez finished 19-8 with a 2.88 ERA in 33 starts and was an All-Star for Colorado last season.
He also threw the first no-hitter in Rockies history on April 17 and finished third in voting for the NL Cy Young Award.
(This version corrects that it would not have been Jimenez’s spring debut)
