Gonzalez (shoulder) is not in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Dodgers, Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times reports. Raimel Tapia will be afforded another opportunity in right field with Gonzalez set to miss a second straight start due to right shoulder soreness. Gonzalez's status for Sunday's series finale is up in the air.
Gonzalez is day-to-day with a sore right shoulder, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports Friday. That explains Gonzalez's absence from Friday's lineup against the Dodgers. At age 31, there's no shame in needing an off-day to recover from the bumps and bruises of a major league season. Don't expect Gonzalez to be out for long, especially given the pivotal nature of this weekend's series against division rival Los Angeles.
Gonzalez is not in the lineup Friday against the Dodgers, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports. Gonzalez will head to the bench for a breather after starting each of the last six games for the Rockies. Raimel Tapia will start in right field in his place.
Gonzalez is not in the lineup Thursday against the Giants, Jenny Cavnar of Root Sports Rocky Mountain reports. Gonzalez, who is in the midst of an 0-for-24 stretch over his last seven games, will get his second straight scheduled day off as he clears his head. Raimel Tapia will again start in right field for Gonzalez, who will look to turn things around over the weekend.
Gonzalez is not in the lineup Wednesday against the Pirates, Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post reports. Gonzalez hasn't collected a hit in his past 24 at-bats, so he'll head to the bench for a night off. Raimel Tapia will man right field in his place, and could do so more frequently if CarGo is unable to escape his season-long slump that's seen his batting average drop to a career-low .215 mark.
