Kim left Sunday's start against Arizona in the fourth inning with a bruised thumb on on his pitching hand. He hurt the thumb while batting earlier in the game. Kim is 1-2 with a 10.50 ERA this season.
The 28-year-old McClellan has never appeared in a major league game. He's thrown four shutout innings with Colorado Springs this season.
Rockies manager Clint Hurdle said he plans use McClellan in late-inning situations.
``Zach's pitched well,'' Hurdle said. ``This is an opportunity we wanted to give to him. We're confident he'll run with it.''
