DENVER (AP) - The Colorado Rockies have placed right-hander Jordan Lyles on the 15-day disabled list with a fractured left hand.
Lyles broke a bone just below the knuckle of his middle finger when he tried to tag out former Myrtle Beach Pelican Martin Prado at home after a wild pitch in the first inning Wednesday night. Lyles stayed in the game, but had to use two hands to catch the ball when it was thrown back to him. He finally left after the fourth inning.
The 23-year-old Lyles, who played high school baseball at Hartsville, is 5-1 this season with a 3.52 ERA.
To take his place on the roster, the Rockies recalled right-hander Chris Martin from Triple-A Colorado Springs. Martin was 0-1 and had a 5.52 ERA with the Sky Sox.
