Colorado Rockies left-hander Franklin Morales will not start Friday against the Cincinnati Reds. 

Analysis:

Matt Belisle will instead toe the rubber in the opener against Cincinnati, with Morales leaving to attend to the birth of his child. He could end up on the paternity list, but Morales figures to miss just the one start.
