DENVER -- Chicago Cubs starter Tom Gorzelanny left Monday night's game against the Colorado Rockies with a right foot contusion after getting hit by a hard grounder in the second inning.

With one out and runners on first and third, Dexter Fowler hit a hard grounder off Gorzelanny's right foot. Gorzelanny fielded the ball near the third-base line but slipped as Yorvit Torrealba scored to give the Rockies a 4-0 lead.

Gorzelanny threw a few warmup pitches after the play, but was taken out of the game. He was replaced by Esmailin Caridad, who made his major league debut after his contract was purchased from Triple-A Iowa.
