Rockies place Guthrie on DL with Shoulder injury
DENVER (AP) The Colorado Rockies have placed right-hander Jeremy Guthrie on the 15-day disabled list a day after he injured his shoulder in a fall from his bicycle.
The Rockies' opening-day starter was placed on the DL Saturday, retroactive to Monday. He'll be eligible for reinstatement on May 8.
Guthrie said he was injured Friday when the chain on his bike snapped as he was pedaling to the ballpark, causing him to tumble to the ground. He jammed his right shoulder in the fall.
The Rockies scratched Guthrie from his scheduled start Saturday night against the New York Mets and replaced him with right-hander Guillermo Moscoso, who was recalled prior to the game from the team's Triple-A affiliate in Colorado Springs.
Guthrie, who threw lightly on the side on Saturday, was 2-1 with a 5.92 ERA in four starts this season.
