De La Rosa has MRI on finger

DENVER (AP) - Colorado Rockies starter Jorge De La Rosa had an MRI done on his left middle finger Monday, a day after suffering a bone bruise on his pitching hand.

Manager Jim Tracy said the team wanted to determine if the injury was more serious than a bone bruise but he had not been told the results of the test.

De La Rosa left Sunday's win over Florida after pitching five innings. The left-hander said his middle finger felt numb and he threw only his changeup in his final inning when he gave up his only two runs of the game.

De La Rosa (3-1) leads the team in strikeouts with 26.
