Catcher Rosario sidelined by wrist injury

MLB.com

SAN FRANCISCO -- Rockies catcher Wilin Rosario was scratched from the lineup Friday night against the Giants because of a left wrist strain.

Rosario incurred the injury while sliding into second base during Tuesday night's 15-3 loss to the White Sox at Coors Field and aggravated it when he fouled off a pitch during Wednesday's 10-4 victory over the White Sox. Jordan Pacheco received the start Friday in Rosario's place.

It was the second start for Pacheco with lefty Jorge De La Rosa pitching. De La Rosa and Rosario became crossed up on signals on Opening Night, when De La Rosa went just 4 1/3 innings in a loss at Miami. De La Rosa lasted just 4 1/3 Saturday when Pacheco caught him against the D-backs, but the Rockies came back to win that game.
