From Patrick Saunders of the Denver Post comes word that the Rockies have scratched outfielder Carlos Gonzalez from Sunday’s series finale against the Tigers due to right hamstring soreness.

Dexter Fowler is playing center field and Eric Young Jr. is in left vs. Detroit’s Max Scherzer.

CarGo should be ready to rock on Tuesday evening against the Phillies after Monday’s scheduled team off day. The 26-year-old has posted a spectacular .335/.394/.629 batting line with 17 home runs, 51 RBI and nine stolen bases in 269 plate appearances this season for fourth-place Colorado.
