Rockies LHP De La Rosa scratched because of cut on finger


PHILADELPHIA — Colorado Rockies left-hander Jorge De La Rosa was scratched from his scheduled start on Saturday against the Philadelphia Phillies because of a cut on the middle finger of his pitching hand.

De La Rosa (1-2, 6.51 ERA) was replaced by right-hander Eddie Butler (2-5, 4.60).

De La Rosa, who also missed his last start due to the cut, is now scheduled to start Tuesday's home game against the Dodgers.
