Carlos Gonzalez posted a pair of singles and a two-run home run with two runs scored in Saturday's victory against San Diego.

Carlos Gonzalez swatted a pair of two-run home runs in four at-bats with a walk in Tuesday's game at Arizona.

After a difficult first half, CarGo is making up for lost time after the All-Star break. He is hitting .309 (50-for-162) with 16 doubles, six homers and 30 RBI since the break after he hit just .221 with 13 doubles, sox homers and 22 RBI across 263 at-bats.
Sep 13 - 1:10 AM

Carlos Gonzalez homered in a second straight game Friday as the Rockies edged the Dodgers 5-4 in L.A.

Gonzalez whiffed three times tonight, but he made his hit count. He has seven extra-base hits in seven games this month, and his OPS has jumped 50 points from .665 to .715.
Sep 9 - 2:19 AM

Carlos Gonzalez clubbed his ninth home run of the season as the Rockies crushed the Dodgers on Thursday.

Gonzalez tagged Edward Paredes for the solo shot in the seventh inning, increasing the Rockies' lead to 7-1. He also singled twice in the ballgame, finishing the night 3-for-5 with a pair of runs scored. He has been a major disappointment this season from a fantasy perspective, slashing just .251/.327/.383 with nine homers and 47 RBI.
Sep 8 - 1:48 AM

Carlos Gonzalez doubled, singled, walked and was hit by a pitch Wednesday against the Giants.

Gonzalez is 6-for-12 with five extra-base hits, five RBI and six walks so far in September. His OPS is up to .697, near his high-water point for the season. Except for a three-day stretch in May, his OPS has been below .700 all year long.
Sep 7 - 12:20 AM

Carlos Gonzalez doubled twice and knocked in two runs against the Diamondbacks on Friday.

Gonzalez could be in line to lose some playing time this month if he doesn't hit, but he has picked it up some over the last month, hitting 289 with two homers, eight doubles and 17 RBI in 90 at-bats since Aug. 1. He'll play most of the time as long as he can maintain that pace.
Sep 2 - 1:00 AM

Carlos Gonzalez (ankle) is back in the Rockies' starting lineup Wednesday against the Tigers.

CarGo was held out of Tuesday's starting lineup due to a sore left ankle, but he appeared as a pinch-hitter in the bottom of the seventh inning and hit a go-ahead RBI sac fly as Colorado went on to win 7-3. He'll start in right field and bat sixth Wednesday versus Detroit right-hander Justin Verlander.

Carlos Gonzalez (ankle) hit a pinch-hit RBI sac fly on Tuesday night against the Tigers.

CarGo was held out of the Rockies' starting lineup for the second straight day due to a sore left ankle, but his drive to center field in the bottom of the seventh easily scored Jonathan Lucroy from third base and gave the Rockies a 4-3 lead. They'd go on to win the game 7-3. Gonzalez remains day-to-day.
Aug 30 - 8:40 AM

Carlos Gonzalez (ankle) remains out of the Rockies' starting lineup on Tuesday.

CarGo was scratched from the Rockies' lineup Monday due to a sore left ankle and he's apparently still injured. Gerardo Parra is in right field and batting cleanup Tuesday night against Tigers right-hander Michael Fulmer.
Aug 29 - 4:36 PM

Carlos Gonzalez was scratched from Monday's lineup with a sore left ankle.

Ian Desmond is in there instead in his first game back from the disabled list. Consider CarGo day-to-day.
Aug 28 - 8:51 PM

Carlos Gonzalez went 2-for-4 with a two-run homer Friday as the Rockies topped the Brewers 8-4.

Gonzalez is up to .293 with two homers and 13 RBI in 16 games this month. 11 of those 16 games have come at Coors, which helps a bunch. We wouldn't go so far as to say he's figured it out, but those who have held on to him are reaping some modest rewards.
Aug 19 - 12:40 AM

Carlos Gonzalez is not in the Rockies' starting lineup Thursday against the Braves.

Alexi Amarista will start in right field and hit seventh versus Braves right-hander Lucas Sims. It's been a highly disappointing walk year for CarGo, who's batting just .236/.303/.350 with seven home runs in 100 games played.
Aug 17 - 12:22 PM

Carlos Gonzalez went 2-for-3 with two RBI and a walk against the Braves in Monday's win.

Gonzalez has five RBI the last three days. We still wouldn't say he's gotten it going; he is hitting .289 this month, but it comes with just three extra-base hits and two walks in 45 at-bats.
Aug 15 - 1:12 AM

Carlos Gonzalez delivered a two-run homer and walked in a losing cause Wednesday versus the Mets.

Gonzalez is hitting .326 during his current 11-game hitting streak. We wouldn't say he's on fire just yet, but any sign of progress is encouraging.
