Bergman to have MRI on ailing hand Monday

DENVER -- Rockies right-hander Christian Bergman, hit on the base of his left hand/wrist area by a line drive in a loss to the Brewers on Friday, will undergo an MRI Monday to determine if he can make his next scheduled start Wednesday against the Cardinals.

Bergman threw a normal bullpen session on Sunday, but he couldn't take return throws from the catcher because he still couldn't close his catching hand.


In three starts, Bergman is 0-2 with a 7.20 ERA after being called up from Triple-A Colorado Springs. He struggled in his start against the Brewers, giving up three home runs and seven total runs on nine hits in three innings.
