Rockies outfielder Carlos Gonzalez exited Sunday’s game in the sixth inning with knee tendinitis, bending over at the waist in obvious pain after running out a ground ball.
Rockies manager Walt Weiss insisted afterward that it’s a minor injury Gonzalez has played through off and on for a while and Owen Perkins of MLB.com reports that Gonzalez is considered day-to-day, potentially returning to the lineup as soon as tonight against the Giants.
It’s been a tough opening month for Gonzalez, who had to leave a game during the opening week of the season after swallowing his chewing tobacco. He’s hitting .282 with four homers and an .881 OPS, at least.
