SAN DIEGO -- Rockies left-hander Brett Anderson had four small pins inserted into his left index finger to help speed the healing of a broken bone, which he suffered Saturday while batting against the Giants.

The pins, which will stay in Anderson's finger for about six weeks, will allow him to move the finger in a way a splint would not. After healing, Anderson will rehab.

No return date has been predicted, because Anderson will have to rehab and build his pitch count after healing.

Anderson was off to a solid start before the injury, with a 3.60 ERA in three starts.
