Rockies outfielder Carlos Gonzalez suffered a deep bone bruise in his right wrist nearly two weeks ago when he crashed into the center field wall at Coors Field while making a highlight reel catch.
Gonzalez was able to avoid the disabled list and remains active here in mid-July, but the 25-year-old has already been ruled out of the Rockies’ second-half opener on Thursday night against the Brewers and might not be ready for Friday’s game either. This according to Jim Armstrong, who covers the Rockies for the Denver Post.
Gonzalez was given a cortisone injection earlier this week and was fitted with a temporary cast. An MRI has already ruled out structural damage, but the Rox are taking all the necessary precautions for fear that lingering wrist discomfort might sap CarGo’s power down the stretch. He has only 13 homers in 86 games this season.
