Carlos Gonzalez may be placed on the disabled list with finger injury

Rockies outfielder Carlos Gonzalez had been out of the lineup for the first three games of August due to a nagging finger injury, but was back in today as his team wrapped up their weekend set in Pittsburgh against the Pirates. He went 1-for-4 with a single, but reaggravated the injury in his final at-bat, grounding out weakly to Pedro Alvarez at third base.

Troy Renck of the Denver Post is reporting that Gonzalez may wind up on the disabled list:

“I don’t want to go on the DL. But I can’t swing. I am just a slap hitter, that’s all I can do right now,” said Gonzalez after the Rockies’ 5-1 loss to the Pirates. “It’s right back to where it was (during the Atlanta series).”

Gonzalez suffered the injury in the ninth inning on July 7 against the Diamondbacks. He fouled off the first pitch he saw from reliever Josh Collmenter. He grimaced as he recoiled from the swing and grabbed at his hand. He couldn’t finish the at-bat, so manager Walt Weiss pinch-hit for him with Todd Helton. In the time since, Gonzalez has hit .294, but with dramatically reduced power, hitting just one double and two home runs in 58 trips to the plate.
