Rockies right-hander Christian Bergman told MLB.com’s Thomas Harding on Monday that his left (non-throwing) hand felt fine 72 hours after being struck by a comebacker in his Friday start against the Brewers. But an MRI has shown otherwise.

Patrick Saunders of the Denver Post reports that Bergman has been diagnosed with a broken bone near the base of his left thumb and will be sidelined for the next six weeks. Yohan Flande is going to take over his rotation spot Wednesday against the Cardinals in what will be the 28-year-old left-hander’s major league debut.

Flande will be facing Cardinals pitching prospect Marco Gonzales, also making his MLB debut.

Bergman joins Jordan Lyles, Carlos Gonzalez, Nolan Arenado, Wilin Rosario, and Brett Anderson on a six-man list of prominent Rockies players who have suffered major hand injuries this season.
