Colorado’s Nolan Arenado goes on DL with broken finger

ATLANTA — The Colorado Rockies began another day without Carlos Gonzalez in their starting lineup with the more daunting knowledge Nolan Arenado will be missing for much longer.

The Rockies placed Arenado on the 15-day disabled list Saturday, one day after he broke his left middle finger on a headfirst slide into second base. The team recalled infielder Josh Rutledge from Class AAA Colorado Springs.

Arenado was hitting .305 with six homers and 28 runs batted in. A decision on surgery or other treatment options won’t be made until the third baseman is examined by a specialist.

Arenado said Saturday he knew the finger was broken as soon as he made the slide in Friday’s 3-2 loss to the Braves.

“I kind of feel like I’m letting these guys down a little bit,” Arenado said. “That hurts a little bit.”

Notes

• The Boston Red Sox placed right fielder Shane Victorino on the 15-day disabled list for the second time this season.

Both times it’s been because of a strained right hamstring. He was sidelined from the start of the season until he was activated April 24. Outfielder Daniel Nava was recalled from Class AAA Pawtucket.

Also, designated hitter David Ortiz and first baseman Mike Napoli were not listed in Saturday’s lineup because of injuries.

• The Baltimore Orioles addressed their lack of depth at catcher, acquiring Nick Hundley from the San Diego Padres in a trade for left-handed reliever Troy Patton.

The 30-year-old Hundley hit .271 with a home run and three runs batted in in 33 games with the Padres this season. The Orioles are currently operating without starting catcher Matt Wieters, who’s on the disabled list with a strained right elbow.
