Fassero is cut over not wanting to face Cards




DENVER - The Colorado Rockies released left-hander Jeff Fassero on Friday after he and manager Clint Hurdle disagreed about his ability to start against St. Louis this weekend.


``It was over philosophical differences,'' Hurdle said. ``That's all I have to say about it. He had concerns. I had concerns.''


Fassero was scheduled to start Sunday, and it would've been his first appearance since Sept. 13. When he found out he was starting, Fassero said he needed to get some work in relief before he made the start.


``I need to get in and face live competition in the next two days or they need to do something else,'' he said.


Hurdle decided Chris Gissell would make his first major league start Sunday in Colorado's home finale.


Fassero was 3-8 record with a 5.51 ERA in 40 appearances, including 12 starts.
