Rockies' Carlos Gonzalez to have exploratory surgery on injured finger
Colorado outfielder Carlos Gonzalez is already on the DL, and now he's set to go under the knife.
We don't know a timeline for Cargo's return just yet, but obviously this procedure will help establish one. Needless to say, if this turns out to be an extended absense, then that's bad news for the already spiraling Rockies.
This season, the 28-year-old Gonzalez is batting .255/.307/.449 in 52 games. For his career, the two-time All-Star owns an OPS+ of 123 across parts of seven major-league seasons. Gonzalez is in the fourth year of a seven-year, $80-milllion contract.
