On Sunday, the Rockies placed outfielder Carlos Gonzalez on the 15-day disabled list. As MLB.com's Thomas Harding tweets, the team is making the move so that Gonzalez's left knee (tendinitis) and right ankle (sprain) can have some time to heal. Infielder Ben Paulsen has been recalled to take CarGo's spot on the active roster. 

This season, Gonzalez is batting a disappointing .238/.292/.431 (89 OPS+) in 70 games. Earlier this year, Gonzalez spent more than a month on the DL because of a finger injury. 

The 28-year-old Gonzalez is in the fourth year of a seven-year, $80-million contract.
