Rockies starter Brett Anderson left his start on Saturday against the Giants after grounding out to end the top of the fourth inning. According to MLB.com’s Thomas Harding, Anderson hurt his hand during the at-bat. Anderson has been diagnosed with a left finger contusion.
Over the three innings he pitched, Anderson held the Giants scoreless on one hit and one walk while striking out two. Tommy Kahnle relieved him in the bottom of the fourth.
Anderson has had it tough injury-wise lately. He suffered a broken foot last season, forcing him out of the rotation for four months. Prior to that, Anderson underwent Tommy John surgery in July 2011 and he didn’t return until mid-August 2012. For Anderson’s sake, hopefully the injury is minor and he won’t need to miss any time as a result.
