Rockies outfielder Carlos Gonzalez injured his right wrist one week ago when he crashed into the center field wall at Coors Field while making a fantastic catch on a line drive from Royals catcher Brayan Pena. Seven days later, Gonzalez is still hurting.
According to Jim Armstrong of the Denver Post, CarGo is expected to undergo an MRI on his ailing right wrist Monday in Colorado. The Rockies still believe that he’s simply battling a contusion, but they want to rule out structural damage.
Gonzalez has cooled off significantly from his MVP-worthy 2010 season, but he still boasts a respectable .292/.359/.491 batting line with 13 home runs and 51 RBI through 359 plate appearances.
He also has 14 stolen bases in 18 attempts. The Rockies are going to need Gonzalez active and healthy in order to put together a more successful second half and climb out of third place in the National League West.
