Chatwood given extra day to rest triceps, elbow

DENVER -- Right-hander Tyler Chatwood, who hasn't pitched since suffering inflammation of tissue in the right triceps and elbow area during his last start on June 3, is slated to start Saturday against the Phillies, instead of Friday as originally announced. Juan Nicasio will get the Friday start, instead of going on Saturday.

Manager Walt Weiss made the announcement Wednesday. Chatwood threw a bullpen session on Tuesday and reported no undue soreness Wednesday. That was the last hurdle to returning him to the rotation.

Chatwood (3-1, 2.14 ERA in six starts) left his start against the Reds after giving up one run in four innings, and was tagged with the decision in the Rockies' 3-0 loss.

Nicasio (4-2, 4.61 ERA) was perfect for 5 1/3 innings Sunday before giving up two runs in the sixth and exiting the eventual 8-7 victory over the Padres.
