Rockies put Jimenez on 15-day DL, recall Reynolds
The Colorado Rockies placed pitcheron the 15-day disabled list and recalled pitcher from Triple-A Colorado Springs. He will start Saturday at Pittsburgh.
Jimenez, who has a cuticle cut on his right thumb, went on the disabled list retroactive to April 2, meaning he is eligible to be activated April 17. This is the first time in his career that Jimenez has been on the disabled list.
, who had been scheduled to start Saturday will instead take the mound Friday in Pittsburgh. He will have ample rest, having made his first start April 2 against the Diamondbacks.
Jimenez suffered a cut on his right thumb cuticle and missed a start in spring training. At that point, he also suffered an infection, which had to be drained. That is not the case this time. Nonetheless, Jimenez cut his right thumb cuticle before his Opening Day start Friday against the Diamondbacks and was hampered by diminished velocity and spotty control in six innings in that game when he allowed seven hits, six for extra bases, including two homers, and six runs, five earned, in the Rockies 7-6 loss in 11 innings.
Reynolds had been scheduled to start Thursday night for the Sky Sox when they open their season against Tucson., who had been scheduled to pitch the second game of the season Friday, likely will move up and take Reynolds’ spot.
