Rockies' Brett Anderson diagnosed with broken finger
Rockies left-hander Brett Anderson has been diagnosed with a broken left index finger and will land on the 15-day DL.
The Rockies have lost another starting pitcher to injury. Ace Jhoulys Chacin has not yet pitched this season due to a shoulder problem, and now left-hander Brett Anderson is going to join him on the DL after suffering a finger injury on Saturday.

The norm for LHP Brett Anderson's broken left index finger is 4-6 weeks— Thomas Harding (@harding_at_mlb) April 13, 2014
It should be noted Anderson hurt his finger during an at-bat, not the act of pitching. The sooner the NL adopts the DH, the happier I'll be.
Anderson, 26, has a lengthy injury history, including foot, elbow, adominal, knee, thumb, back and blister problems. The elbow issue eventually required Tommy John surgery. He threw only 275 1/3 innings from 2010-13.
In three starts this season, Anderson is 0-2 with a 3.60 ERA (124 ERA+).
