Colorado Rockies starting pitcher Brett Anderson has landed on the disabled list with a broken finger. He broke the index finger on his left hand while swinging at a pitch over the weekend. And for those of you who didn’t believe he is actually hurt, Anderson shared a photo of his X-ray on Instagram.
We have seen a number of pitchers injure themselves while batting over the years, which is one of the reasons many feel the National League should adopt the designated hitter. Don’t expect Anderson to be taking many full swings when he returns from the DL. The Rockies need the lefthander in their starting rotation.
