Carlos Gonzalez blasted his 31st home run of the season on Friday, but it wasn't enough for the Rockies to overcome the Pirates.

His solo shot in the sixth inning tied the score at 3-3 but would wind up being the extent of the Rockies offense. After an absolutely miserable start to his season, Gonzalez is hitting .299 (75-for-251) with 27 homers and 59 RBI in his last 69 games.

Aug 26 - 4:59 PM

Rockies manager Walt Weiss said that Carlos Gonzalez (knee) is "definitely available" off the bench Tuesday.

He didn't start the game after exiting Monday's contest with a nagging right knee injury. The knee has bothered CarGo off and on for a few weeks but this is the first time he's missed a game because of it. "He's day to day, but he's definitely available," Weiss said. "I don't anticipate it being a major deal."

Carlos Gonzalez left Monday's game versus the Braves with right knee soreness.

It's the same thing that forced him from a game last week. It didn't cost him any starts last week and the Rockies are listing Gonzalez day-to-day for the time being. The slugger was hitless in two plate appearances before exiting.

Carlos Gonzalez was 2-for-4 with a home run, a walk, and three runs scored against the Mets on Friday.

Aug 22 - 1:04 AM

Carlos Gonzalez (knee) is back in the Rockies' starting lineup Wednesday night against the Nationals.

Aug 18 - 11:05 PM

Carlos Gonzalez went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Sunday's win over the Padres.

Gonzalez took an Ian Kennedy offering for a solo ride in the fourth inning. He's been nothing short of remarkable of late, hitting .306/.373/.745 since the All-Star Break. For reference's sake, he hit 13 home runs in 82 games leading into the break, but has launched 14 in just 27 games since. On the year, he owns a .270/.328/.530 batting line with 27 home runs and 67 RBI.
Aug 16 - 7:52 PM

Gonzalez gave the Rockies a 2-1 lead when he drove a Jon Niese offering to left-center, marking his 16th home run in his last 28 games. His 26 home runs on the season matches his highest output since 2010, when he hit 34. He has also knocked in 64 runs while batting .281/.337/.548.
Aug 10 - 9:44 PM

Carlos Gonzalez scorched the Nationals for a pair of solo home runs across five plate appearances in Sunday's win.

Gonzalez gave the Rockies an early 1-0 lead with a solo home run off of Max Scherzer in the first inning. He provided an encore against Scherzer in the sixth, as his solo home run tied the game at three apiece. The outfielder has homered 15 times in his last 27 games. Gonzalez now has 25 home runs, 62 RBI, and a .281/.338/.543 triple-slash line.
Aug 9 - 5:02 PM

Carlos Gonzalez blasted a grand slam off Drew Storen in the eighth inning on Friday, propelling the Rockies to a stunning come-from-behind 5-4 victory.

The Nationals had cruised into the eighth inning with a 4-1 lead, but the Rockies were able to string together a couple of hits and a walk against former closer Drew Storen to set the stage for CarGo's dramatic two-out blast. He also had a single in the contest finishing the night 2-for-4. Gonzalez is now hitting .282/.340/.533 with 23 homers and 60 RBI on the season.

Aug 2 - 12:03 PM

ESPN's Jayson Stark reports that the Rockies have told teams they will revisit trading Carlos Gonzalez next month or over the winter.

They evidently haven't been able to find a robust enough market for CarGo this month. Gonzalez is one of the hottest hitters in baseball with a .431/.481/.958 batting line and 11 homers over his last 18 games.
