PHOENIX (AP) - Arizona right-hander Ian Kennedy will miss his next start after cutting his right index finger while doing the dishes this week.
Kennedy was scheduled to start one of the games in Monday's doubleheader against the Texas Rangers, but will now be replaced by left-hander Tyler Skaggs, who will be recalled from Triple-A Reno.
Arizona manager Kirk Gibson said Kennedy cut his finger a couple of days ago and threw a bullpen session on Saturday with a Band-Aid on it. He said the Diamondbacks considered several options that might allow Kennedy to pitch on Monday, including glue, but the team decided not to interfere with the healing process.
Gibson also said he hopes Kennedy will not have to go on the disabled list. He is 2-3 with a 4.70 ERA.
