Colorado Rockies outfielder Carlos Gonzalez has a bruised right hand, according to the team, and preliminary X-rays for a break came back negative. We do not know at this time if he we need to miss a few games, and surely there are more tests to run.
Below is the original story:
We are uncertain at this time the extent of the injury but CarGo was immediately removed.
Oddly, Gonzalez was charged with a strike on the check swing, which really seemed harsh based on the replays.
Stephen Cardullo came in to pinch-hit for Gonzalez when he likely should have been pinch-running.
We will have more as details emerge and if there need to be any roster moves. If a transaction does need to be made, it’s likely we will see Raimel Tapia rejoin the team for their series against the San Francisco Giants starting on Friday.
