Rockies' Tulowitzki, Gonzalez run bases Monday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/2/2015) Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki and outfielder Carlos Gonzalez ran the bases Monday morning, the Denver Post reports.

Tulowitzki is returning from August hip surgery, while Gonzalez is working his way back from August knee surgery. Manager Walt Weiss pointed out Saturday that the ability to run the bases is a big step in the recovery of both players.

"It's not [far off], relatively speaking," Weiss said when asked when the two would play in games, per MLB.com. "I don't want to put a time frame on it, but put it this way: It's going to happen sooner than I probably thought this winter."


Rockies' Tulowitzki, Gonzalez to start running bases next week


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(2/28/2015) Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki and outfielder Carlos Gonzalez are slated to start running the bases next week, MLB.com reports.

The team is taking it slow with both players after they lost a significant part of the 2014 season to injuries after undergoing surgeries in August. Neither player will see time in Wednesday's Cactus League opener.

"There are still some things they need to do on the field before they're even ready to go into a game -- running bases, specifically," manager Walt Weiss said Saturday. "Last year, we'd have been very happy with the way they're at right now when we thought about their recovery and everything they had to go through. With where they are now, we're very encouraged by it."


Rockies' Weiss: CarGo, Tulo won't be rushed at start of spring training


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/18/2015) Rockies manager Walt Weiss said the team will take it easy on outfielder Carlos Gonzalez and shortstop Troy Tulowitzki at the outset of spring training, per The Denver Post. Tulowitzki is recovering from August hip surgery, while Gonzalez is recovering from August knee surgery.

"Yes, I think that's the plan," Weiss said. "We will go slowly with those two guys. I feel like position players get ready pretty quickly, so I don't think you need a ton of at-bats. You can always go over to the minor-league side to get at-bats in a day, if needed.

"So I'm not concerned about those guys being ready. They will get their at-bats. The plan is to take it slow early on with Tulo and CarGo, and not put them into a game until they are absolutely ready to do so."


Rockies manager Walt Weiss: CarGo, Tulo are 'ahead of schedule'


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/9/2015) Rockies manager Walt Weiss said Monday morning shortstop Troy Tulowitzki and Carlos Gonzalez "are on schedule or even ahead of schedule," per MLB Network Radio. Tulowitzki is recovering from August hip surgery, while Gonzalez is recovering from August knee surgery.

"We feel like CarGo and Tulo are still elite and in their prime. We feel like there's a window of opportunity here," Weiss said.


Rockies' Bridich: 'Highly unlikely' Tulo, CarGo traded before opener


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/27/2015) Rockies general manager Jeff Bridich told FOX Sports on Tuesday that it is "highly, highly unlikely" shortstop Troy Tulowitzki or outfielder Carlos Gonzalez will be traded before opening day.

Tulowitzki, who has been linked to trade rumors involving the Mets this offseason, is under contract through 2020 on a six-year, $118 million deal. He is also recovering from August hip surgery.

Gonzalez is under contract through the 2017 season on a seven-year, $80 million contract. He is also recovering from surgery in August to repair the patellar tendon in his left knee.


Rockies' Bridich: CarGo 'on schedule' in recovery from knee surgery


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/23/2015) Rockies general manager Jeff Bridich said outfielder Carlos Gonzalez, who had surgery to repair the patellar tendon in his left knee in August, is "on schedule" in his recovery, per MLB.com. 

"CarGo is in town right now," said Bridich, who added that Gonzalez's left index finger, where a benign tumor was removed last year, also has healed and the outfielder is throwing. "He's going through the routine check-ins, and he's exactly on schedule. We're hopeful to get him on the field sometime soon. Obviously, it's winter here, so it's tough."


Report: Rockies OF Carlos Gonzalez cleared to take BP on field


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/21/2015) Rockies outfielder Carlos Gonzalez, who underwent knee surgery in August, has been cleared to take batting practice on the field, according to MLB.com. He is also allowed to run straight ahead, but he won't be allowed to change direction until spring training begins.

Gonzalez, who was an All-Star in 2012-13, was limited to 70 games in 2014. He hit .238 with 11 home runs, 15 doubles and 38 RBI. 


Report: Rockies' Carlos Gonzalez may be cleared by next week


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(1/20/2015) Rockies outfielder Carlos Gonzalez was able to take swings Tuesday and may be cleared for more on-field activies by next week, according to FOXSports.com.

Gonzalez underwent surgery to repair a patellar tendon in his knee in August after dealing with discomfort for most of the 2014 season. The outfielder hit .238 in 2014 with 11 home runs and 38 RBI in 260 at-bats.


Rockies OF Carlos Gonzalez resumes hitting


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(12/24/2014) Rockies outfieler Carlos Gonzalez revealed this week that he has been cleared to practice hitting for the first time since undergoing knee surgery in August, MLB.com reports.

Gonzalez had been having issues with the troublesome knee for more than a year before undergoing a procedure to repair a patella tendon on Aug. 18. He also dealt with appendicitis in January and a persistent finger injury throughout the season. The issues led to a down year for the outfielder, as Gonzalez hit just .238/.292/.431 with 11 home runs and 38 RBI in 260 at-bats.


Report: Rockies lean toward keeping Tulowitzki, Gonzalez


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11/14/2014) The Rockies are leaning toward standing pat rather than trading stud shortstop Troy Tulowitzki and outfielder Carlos Gonzalez, according to ESPN, which is speculating that despite injuries and contract obligations, both are too talented to be swapped without receiving equal value.

The timing for such a deal could indeed be wrong considering that both lost about half of the 2014 season to injuries.


Rockies to listen on Troy Tulowitzki, Carlos Gonzalez


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(11/5/2014) The Rockies are willing to listen to offers for Troy Tulowitzki and Carlos Gonzalez, according to FoxSports.com.

The team won't actively shop either player, but is willing to listen to offers, which is a departure from the past. Both players have immense talent, but that comes with a disposition toward injuries. Tulowitzki was limited to just 91 games last year due to a hip injury. Gonzalez played in just 70 games due to finger and knee issues.

Both players also are owed a fair amount of money moving forward. Tulo still has $114 million left over six seasons. Gonzalez is owed $53 million over the next three. 


Trading Tulowitzki, Gonzalez would be 'tough pill to swallow' for Rockies


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/9/2014) Rockies outfielder Carlos Gonzalez and shortstop Troy Tulowitzki have been linked trade rumors quite often. New Rockies general manager Jeff Birdich seems against trading Colorado's two superstar players, but he appears willing to listen to offers.

"We are well aware how talented they both are," Birdich told MLB Network Radio Thursday. "Thinking about trading them would be a tough pill to swallow. Though, it would be unwise for us to close our ears or eyes to any trading possibility."


Rockies activate Christian Bergman, send Michael Cuddyer to DL


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(8/24/2014) The Rockies activated Sunday starter Christian Bergman from the 60-day disabled list Sunday and placed outfielder Michael Cuddyer on the 15-day disabled list.

Bergman returns to the team after missing just over two months with a fractured hand. Cuddyer has dealt with a hamstring injury over the past week.

The Rockies also transferred outfielder Carlos Gonzalez to the 60-day disabled list to clear a 40-man roster spot for Bergman.


Carlos Gonzalez might miss start of spring training


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(8/19/2014) Rockies outfielder Carlos Gonzalez underwent surgery on his left knee Monday and "everything went perfect," but his rehab might prevent him from being ready for the start of spring training, Denver Post reports.

"We really don't know how he's going to be until that 4 1/2- to 5-month mark," head trainer Keith Dugger said. "He might be a little delayed in spring training. But our goal is to get him there and get him ready."

Doctors removed a torn part of the outfielder's patella tendon, removed a bursa sac and cleaned up a fat pad.


'Stressed' Carlos Gonzalez sidelined for rest of season


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/15/2014) What was anticipated has been confirmed - Rockies outfielder Carlos Gonzalez will be out the rest of the season. He will undergo left knee surgery Monday. The pain he feels has been more than physical.

"I still have that fire, that passion," he told the Denver Post. "But it's limited. I show up the first game and go 3 for 5 with a home run, and I extend a single into a double. And then the next day, I feel like I got hit by a bus.

"It's hard to play that way, when you go out there and feel like, 'I can't move today. I just hope nobody hits the ball where I'm playing right now. When your body gets stressed, your mental part gets affected, too."

Gonzalez finishes the season with a weak stat line of .238/.292/.431.


Carlos Gonzalez to have knee surgery


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(8/14/2014) Rockies outfielder Carlos Gonzalez will have knee surgery.

Gonzalez will have surgery on his left patella tendon Monday. Gonzalez has been sidelined since August 8 due to the issue. He was slated to meet with the team's medical personnel Thursday to determine a plan for the rest of the season. The surgery is expected to end Gonzalez's year. He hit .238/.292/.431 over 260 at-bats. 


Report: Carlos Gonzalez probably done for season


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/14/2014) A disappointing year for Rockies outfielder Carlos Gonzalez is likely over, the Denver Post has reported. He has been out with a left knee injury since Aug. 8.

Gonzalez underwent an MRI Wednesday that revealed more damage than previous examinations. He is scheduled to consult with medical personnel Thursday on a treatment plan.

"(The MRI) did show some changes from his previous MRI on his patella tendon, meaning that it is getting worse," said trainer Keith Dugger. "The irratation to the area is a little worse off than it was when we did the one earlier in the year."

Gonzalez has been plagued by left knee tendinitis since last season. He was placed on the 15-day disabled list Sunday after compiling an uncharacteristically poor stat line this season of .238/.292/.431. His slugging percentage is 160 points lower than what he achieved in 2013.

The club will consult with doctors Thursday regarding the next step for Gonzalez's recovery. He has hit .238/.292/.431 with 11 home runs and 38 RBI in 260 at-bats.


Is that stashed superstar really worth the wait?


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(8/12/2014) So you're at the point, with the season winding down, where you have to win at all costs. Seems straightforward enough. The only problem is your bench is overflowing with players you can't actually use -- ones that are injured but too valuable to drop, like Brett Lawrie, Brandon Phillips, Adam Eaton, Michael Wacha, Paul Goldschmidt, Yadier Molina, Ryan Zimmerman, Joey Votto, Carlos Gonzalez or Masahiro Tanaka.

Or maybe your albatross isn't injured but just doesn't inspire much confidence right now, like Pedro Alvarez, Justin Verlander or Mike Minor.

I've got news for you: This late in the year, when winning is paramount, you can consider dropping them. Granted, it shouldn't be the goal because the competition can only benefit from whatever you forfeit, but sometimes, it's your only choice.

I break it down player-by-player in my latest post to the Fantasy Baseball Today blog, so if you could a little assistance with that season-shifting dilemma, be sure to check out.
