DETROIT -- After tossing two-thirds of an inning in the Rockies' 16-inning game on Tuesday, rookie Tyler Matzek was in need of a little extra rest.

He was scratched from his Thursday start, but manager Walt Weiss revealed Friday that he'll be good to go for Saturday night against the Tigers.

"We felt like we just needed to get him a couple more days," Weiss said. "We didn't feel like we had to make any big adjustments. Just wanted to get him a couple more days of rest."

Yohan Flande had previously been scheduled to start Saturday but is in the bullpen for now in a long-relief role.
