Carlos Gonzalez to undergo knee surgery
All-Star Rockies outfielder Carlos Gonzalez is set to have surgery on his left patella tendon Monday.
Rockies outfielder Carlos Gonzalez will have surgery to repair his left patella tendon Monday, the club announced in a press release Thursday night. No official announcement was made as to a recovery timetable, but given the timing of the surgery and the fact that the Rockies are well out of the pennant race, it's a good bet Cargo's season is over.
Gonzalez, 28, was placed on the DL a few days ago due to left knee tendinitis. He hit .238/.292/.431 (90 OPS+) with 11 homers and 38 RBI in 70 games (281 plate appearances) in a big-time down year for the two-time All-Star. His seven-year, $80 million deal runs through 2017.
The Rockies head to Friday tied with Texas for the worst record in baseball at 47-74.
