Rockies left-hander Brett Anderson hasn’t progressed as quickly as hoped in his recovery from a broken index finger that was supposed to take 4-6 weeks.
Patrick Saunders of the Denver Post reports that Anderson had the pins removed from his finger Tuesday and the Rockies are currently hoping that he can come off the disabled list in early July. He’s yet to even begin a throwing program, however, so there are several hurdles to get past before then.
Anderson, who was acquired from the A’s this offseason, was injured in his third start of the season. He’s been derailed by injuries every year since a strong rookie campaign in 2009, throwing a grand total of 290 innings in five seasons and failing to top 100 innings in each of the past three years.
