Carlos Gonzalez (hand) has returned to the Rockies starting lineup on Friday.

Gonzalez has appeared only as a defensive replacement since leaving Sunday's game with a sprained left hand. He's hitting .237/.302/.409 with 10 homers and 27 RBI in 66 games on the season.

Carlos Gonzalez (hand) is expected to return to the Rockies' lineup on Friday.

Gonzalez has served as a defensive replacement the last couple days but hasn't started a game since Sunday due to a sprained left hand. The 29-year-old had been red-hot before the injury with six homers in his previous 18 games, so hopefully the hand issue is behind him.

Carlos Gonzalez (hand) is not in the Rockies' starting lineup Thursday versus the Diamondbacks.

Gonzalez was able to serve as a defensive sub on Wednesday night, but he still can't swing a bat due to a sprained left hand. Brandon Barnes is starting in right field.

Carlos Gonzalez (hand) served as a defensive replacement in Wednesday's loss to the Diamondbacks.

CarGo entered to play right field in the top of the ninth inning, with Ben Paulsen shifting to first base and the defensively-challenged Wilin Rosario heading to the bench. It was a risky move by manager Walt Weiss, as Gonzalez still can't swing a bat due to a sprained left hand. He was due to hit sixth in the bottom of the ninth, but the Rockies were sent down in order. CarGo remains day-to-day.

Carlos Gonzalez (hand) swung a bat Wednesday for the first time since sustaining a hand sprain.

"It's getting there," Gonzalez said of his hand. "It's sore, of course, because it was a sprain. But the more treatment I get, the more I can get better. Hopefully the next few days I can get better and better." Rockies manager Walt Weiss said Gonzalez would likely be available to pinch-hit in Wednesday's game, a good sign as well. Hopefully CarGo will be back in the Rockies lineup in the next few days.

Carlos Gonzalez is day-to-day with a left hand sprain.

CarGo will be held out of action Tuesday night against the Diamondbacks, but Rockies manager Walt Weiss told reporters that the injury is not considered overly serious.
Jun 23 - 5:45 PM

Carlos Gonzalez was forced to leave Sunday's game against the Brewers after sustaining a mild left hand sprain.

Gonzalez is considered day-to-day. It sounds as though he was able to avoid anything serious here, which is encouraging news. The oft-injured outfielder has really picked up the pace offensively in recent weeks, though he finished Sunday's game 0-for-2 with a strikeout.

Carlos Gonzalez clubbed a three-run homer in a losing effort Thursday against the Astros.

Gonzalez also drew a walk. While things looked bleak for him not too long ago, he's batting .286 with eight home runs and 21 RBI over his last 33 games. Fantasy owners who bought low on him have to be feeling pretty good right about now.

Carlos Gonzalez slugged a two-run homer in Tuesday's loss to the Astros.

After his two-run blast in the fifth inning, he nearly added a second one in the seventh inning, but it was overturned on replay. Regardless, there's reason for optimism with CarGo recently. He's hitting .324 (23-for-71) with four home runs, five doubles, and nine RBI over his last 18 games.

Carlos Gonzalez is absent from the Rockies' lineup Monday.

He's on the bench with the Astros throwing lefty Dallas Keuchel. Brandon Barnes is in right field in CarGo's place.

Carlos Gonzalez belted his seventh home run of the season in a losing effort against the Marlins on Friday.

His solo shot off Marlins starter Jose Urena in the seventh inning was the team's lone run in the contest. His bat has begun to wake up in recent weeks, as he has swatted three homers in his last seven games. With his 1-for-4 effort Friday, he's now hitting .246/.317/.394 with 20 RBI on the season.
Jun 12 - 10:25 PM

Carlos Gonzalez went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Sunday's loss to the Marlins.

Gonzalez hit the bomb--his sixth of the season--off of Carter Capps in the seventh inning. The solo homer temporarily tied the game at 2-2, but the Rockies would be unable to secure the win, falling 3-2 in 10 innings. It's sometimes difficult to remember that Gonzalez was one of the most feared sluggers in the game as recently as 2013. Injuries destroyed his 2014 campaign and Gonzalez has struggled to find traction in 2015, hitting just .240/.320/.377 with six homers and 17 RBI over 183 at-bats.
Jun 7 - 7:38 PM

Carlos Gonzalez is not in the Rockies' lineup Monday.

He's sitting versus lefty Clayton Kershaw. Brandon Barnes is in right field Monday in CarGo's place.
Jun 1 - 4:38 PM

Carlos Gonzalez has been scratched from the Rockies' lineup for Monday's game against the Reds.

Gonzalez was penciled in as the Rockies' No. 3 hitter for their series opener at Great American Ball Park, but he's battling some flu-like symptoms. Brandon Barnes is in right field and batting sixth and Ben Paulsen is in left field and batting cleanup. Charlie Blackmon will start in center and lead off.
