Carlos Gonzalez “is likely done” for the season along with Troy Tulowitzki

Troy Tulowitzki has already been shut down for the year with a torn hip labrum that requires surgery and it looks like the Rockies will also be without Carlos Gonzalez for the remainder of the season.

Gonzalez is on the disabled list with a knee injury and Patrick Saunders of the Denver Post reports that “the MRI revealed more damage than a previous test” and the outfielder “is likely done” for the year after playing just 70 games.

Gonzalez has been trying to play through knee soreness since last season and was placed on the disabled list over the weekend after hitting just .238 with a career-worst .723 OPS. He’s never played more than 145 games in a season, missing big chunks of time in each of the previous three years, but this is the first time Gonzalez’s production when in the lineup has also suffered.

He won the batting title in 2010 while finishing third in the MVP balloting and made the All-Star team in both 2012 and 2013. Prior to this year his OPS with the Rockies has never dipped below .875 and he’s also a three-time Gold Glove winner.
