Rockies’ Bergman scratched from start
Question of the Day
DENVER (AP) - The Colorado Rockies scratched right-hander Christian Bergman from his scheduled start on Wednesday after an exam revealed a fracture in his glove hand.
Bergman was struck on his left hand by a line drive last Friday against the Milwaukee Brewers. The fracture was confirmed by the team’s medical staff after the swelling in his hand subsided.
The Rockies previously lost starters Brett Anderson and Jordan Lyles to the disabled list because of hand fractures.
While the Rockies had not yet formalized the move, manager Walt Weiss said the team planned to call up Yohan Flande from their Triple-A affiliate in Colorado Springs to start Wednesday’s game against St. Louis.
Flande, making his major league debut, will be the 12th pitcher to start a game for the Rockies this season, most in the big leagues.
He will be opposed by Marco Gonzales, who also will be making his major league debut. Gonzales was the Cardinals’ first-round draft pick last year.
