MLB.com beat writer Thomas Harding reports that the Rockies have put outfielder Carlos Gonzalez on the 15-day disabled list with left knee tendinitis. It’s yet another dagger in what has been a highly frustrating season for the dynamic 28-year-old.

CarGo needed surgery in early June to remove a benign tumor from his left index finger and has been bothered off and on by knee issues since April.

This has all led to him posting a disappointing .238 batting average and .723 OPS (89 OPS+) over 70 games. He had a .300 batting average and .887 OPS (125 OPS+) in 691 career games prior to the start of the 2014 campaign.

    Between him and Tulo, I wonder if there’s something in the water in Denver. Shame.

    I wish I made millions of dollars spending my career on the DL

    What a mess. Such a blessing/curse to have two elite level talents like Tulo and CarGo who can’t stay on the field. Will they finally deal one or both of them next offseason? Seems like it might be time to just hit the reset button and move onto the next era because this just hasn’t worked. Trade them for some top pitching prospects.

    Hard for the Rox to win when their two best players seem to compete for the league lead in DL stints every year.
