CHICAGO — Cubs pitcher Tom Gorzelanny will miss a start because of a bruised left hand.

Interim manager Mike Quade says it’s “not out of the question” that he’ll miss more time, after Pittsburgh’s Jose Tabata lined a shot off the pitcher’s hand on Wednesday.

Gorzelanny was scheduled to pitch Tuesday, but the rehabbing Carlos Silva or Casey Coleman will likely take his place. Silva has been sidelined since Aug. 1 because of a heart problem that required surgery.

Catcher Geovany Soto was back in the lineup against the New York Mets on Friday after being sidelined for three games with swelling in his right knee.

The Cubs also recalled catcher Welington Castillo from Triple-A Iowa.

It’s the second stint in the majors this season for Castillo, who was with the team from Aug. 10-22. He appeared in two games and went 1 for 6 with a double, his first career hit.
