Arizona Diamondbacks pitcher Ian Kennedy has been scratched from his scheduled start on Monday after cutting his right index finger while washing dishes, according to azcentral.com's Nick Piecoro.

The right-hander said he was cleaning a knife when he suffered a laceration on the inside of the finger, according to FOXSportsArizona.com's Jack Magruder.

Manager Kirk Gibson said Kennedy threw a bullpen session with a band-aid on the finger on Saturday after suffering the injury earlier in the week.

The D-backs will call up top prospect Tyler Skaggs to start Game 1 of the team's doubleheader against the Rangers on Monday. Kennedy's next start will be pushed back to Friday, as the team hopes he will avoid the disabled list.

Kennedy is 2-3 this season with a 4.70 ERA.

The 21-year-old Skaggs, Baseball America's No. 13 prospect, has struggled in Triple-A, posting a 5.23 ERA, though he has struck out 54 batters in 51.2 innings. He posted a 5.83 ERA in his only six major-league starts last season.
