MIAMI (AP) – Colorado Rockies right-hander Tyler Chatwood will be placed on the disabled list Tuesday and will miss his scheduled start Wednesday at Miami because of a strained left hamstring, manager Walt Weiss said.
Right-hander Jordan Lyles will be recalled from Triple-A Colorado Springs to take Chatwood’s turn, Weiss said before Monday’s opener.
Chatwood was hurt running out a triple in a spring training game Friday. He threw fine in a bullpen session Sunday, Weiss said, but is having trouble covering first base.
Colorado already is without right-hander Jhoulys Chacin, expected to be sidelined until early May because of a shoulder injury.
The move involving Chatwood might be retroactive, meaning he would be out less than 15 days, Weiss said.
