Rockies Ubaldo on Disabled List

Jimenez and the Colorado Rockies were concerned that a cut in the cuticle of the right thumb affect his shooting form and produce a more serious injury in the arm.

Therefore, the Dominican was placed on the disabled list for 15 days, the first time the 27 year old pitcher is on the disabled list in his major league career.

"It's never good to be on the disabled list, especially since it's my first time,'' It's disappointing, but it is for my own good. It is also for the good of the team. Every time I go to the mound want to be 100 percent to help my team. So it makes sense to throw out and not being able to help the team.''

Jimenez was treating the cut with an antibacterial cream and salt water pickle. And is healing, but not fast enough.

"I want to overcome this, and the only way to overcome it completely is if we stop now and give the finger while it is no longer a problem,'' manager Jim Tracy said.

The Rockies wanted Jiménez pitched on Wednesday a bullpen session and opened
on Friday against Pittsburgh.
