If the Colorado Rockies didn't have bad luck, they wouldn't have any at all. First baseman Ian Desmond was hit in the left hand by a pitch thrown by Reds' right-hander Rookie Davis on Sunday. Desmond suffered a broken hand.

Desmond will saw a hand specialist on Monday. He will have surgery on the second metacarpal in his left hand on Wednesday in Scottsdale.

Rockies manager Bud Black spoke with reporters after Sunday's game.

Black also spoke before Monday's Cactus League game against the Royals.
