Carlos Gonzalez has been placed on the 15-day DL – finally. CarGo has been dealing with a sprained finger for weeks now, but the Rockies have been extremely slow and “patient” with him to the point of frustration for fans. Every time he seems to be ok he is run out onto the field and ends up tweaking his finger again, only to be taken out for a few more games.
For his part Cargo insists that the DL won’t help, that he can’t really get the rest his finger needs on such a short rest, but it obviously isn’t helping his finger going in and out of the lineup either.
Francis was brought back up in the move.
