Yohan Flande will make major league debut Wednesday

Rick Scuteri-USA TODAY Sports

The Rockies are about to run out their 12th starting pitcher of 2014.

Rockies Triple-A left-hander Yohan Flande will make his major league debut on Wednesday, according to Nick Groke of the Denver Post. Flande will take the place of Christian Bergman, who is expected to be placed on the disabled list with a broken left hand.

The Rockies perhaps anticipated some bad news on Bergman when they scratched Flande from his scheduled start for Colorado Springs on Monday. Flande, 28, is 2-9 this season but boasts a somewhat respectable 4.42 ERA in 14 appearances (13 starts) for the Sky Sox. He has struck out 6.6 batters per nine innings while walking 3.3, numbers that are roughly in line with his career totals.

Flande will be the 12th different starting pitcher used by the Rockies this season. That's two more than the Padres, Marlins and Rangers, each of whom rank tied for second behind Colorado in that category. Flande will also be the fourth Rockies pitcher to make his big league debut in 2014, joining Bergman, Eddie Butler and Tyler Matzek.

This season just keeps getting better and better ... more to come, unfortunately.
