SURPRISE, Ariz. -- Reliever Louis Coleman is being held out of Cactus League games with a sore finger on his pitching hand, manager Ned Yost said on Friday.

Coleman took a ball off the hand during pitchers' fielding practice a couple of days ago. He's still throwing in bullpen sessions, however.

"He jammed it a bit," Yost said. "We won't put him in a game until he's 100 percent."

Coleman is trying to secure a spot in the Royals' bullpen. He divided last season between Kansas City and Triple-A Omaha, compiling a 0.61 ERA in 27 games for the Royals.
