DiFelice fine after taking liner to pitching hand
PHOENIX -- The only lingering effect from Mark DiFelice's early departure from Saturday's 6-6 draw with the Dodgers was the regret he felt when he didn't record an out.

DiFelice faced one hitter, Trent Oeltjen, and left the game when Oeltjen's line-drive single grazed the knuckles on his pitching hand as he followed through on his delivery.

"It was a backdoor cutter that he just sat on." DiFelice said. "He gave a good swing. If you ask me, I should have caught it."

It would have been a lucky catch, as the hard liner clocked in at 115 mph and went to center field for a leadoff single. DiFelice left the game with a contusion on his ring finger and a cut on his middle finger, but he was fine by Sunday and shouldn't miss any time.

"We iced it yesterday," DiFelice said. "The doctor took a look at it. The bones are intact, and the ligaments are fine. No pain today. I'm going to play catch and be good to go tomorrow."
