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.
