Morneau, Gonzalez return for Rockies; Tulowitzki gets night off


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(5:01 pm ET) Rockies first baseman Justin Morneau and right fielder Carlos Gonzalez returned to the lineup Friday night at home against San Francisco. Both players received the night off on Thursday. Morneau will bat cleanup, while Gonzalez will hit sixth in the order.

Morneau is batting .231 (12 for 52) with one home run, two doubles and three RBI in 14 games, while Gonzalez is batting .179 (10 for 56) with one home run, four doubles and five RBI in 14 games.

Troy Tulowitzki, who started all but one of 16 games this season for the Rockies, received his second night off this season. He is hitting .300 (18 for 60) with nine doubles, a home run and eight RBI in 16 appearances.

Colorado is a home underdog (+100) against the defending World Series champions, per VegasInsider.com.


Rockies' Justin Morneau, Carlos Gonzalez held out of lineup Thursday


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/23/2015) Rockies first baseman Justin Morneau and right fielder Carlos Gonzalez both received a day off Thursday against the Padres. It was the second time Gonzalez was not in the starting lineup and third time Morneau was not in the starting lineup this season.

"I've been wanting to give CarGo one for the last few days," Rockies manager Walt Weiss said, per the Denver Post. "But Dickey (Corey Dickerson) was banged up and we were short-handed. So I thought a day game after a night game was a good spot for it."

Morneau is batting .231 (12 for 52) with one home run, two doubles and three RBI in 14 games, while Gonzalez is batting .179 (10 for 56) with one home run, four doubles and five RBI in 14 games.

The Rockies are considered underdogs (+103) for Thursday's game.


Rockies' Corey Dickerson batting second Monday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/20/2015) Rockies left fielder Corey Dickerson has been moved to the No. 2 slot in the lineup for the first time this season in Monday's matchup against the Padres.

Dickerson has batted sixth in most his starts, but he'll move up and slot between leadoff man Charlie Blackmon and shortstop Troy Tulowitzki Monday. Normal No. 2 hitter Carlos Gonzalez is batting cleanup, with first baseman Justin Morneau moving from the fourth slot to the sixth slot.

The Rockies are favorites (-127) against the Padres in pitcher Jorge De La Rosa's season debut, per VegasInsider.com.


Rockies' Carlos Gonzalez yet to find timing


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/19/2015) Rockies left fielder Carlos Gonzalez admitted Sunday that his timing isn't quite where he wants it but feels it will come, MLB.com reports.

"I'm looking to make solid contact, and when it happens a lot of those balls are going to go over the wall," Gonzalez said. "It's something we don't look for. Just good swings -- when you feel consistent with your swing a lot of extra bases and home runs are going to come. I can feel when I'm in the zone and hitting the ball hard. My swing is good. It's just timing. I've been out front often, but the more I play the more I'm going to see the ball better."

Gonzalez has hit just .214/.244/.381 with one home run and five RBI coming into Sunday's game against the Dodgers.


Rockies give Gonzalez, Morneau the night off vs. Dodgers' Kershaw


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Morneau is 0-for-3 lifetime against Kershaw, while Gonzalez has five hits in 30 at-bats against the Dodgers southpaw.

With Gonzalez on the bench, Weiss chose to go with Charlie Blackmon in right field, Corey Dickerson in left field and Drew Stubbs in center field. Wilin Rosario started at first and batted cleanup in place of Morneau.


Rockies' Weiss: CarGo, Tulowitzki will rest at different times


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Weiss indicated he will monitor Gonzalez's playing time, but added, "Their schedule isn't going to look identical."

Tulowitzki is batting .370 (10 for 27) with five RBI and six doubles in seven games, while Gonzalez is batting .258 (8 for 31) with one home run, four doubles and five RBI in seven games.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/5/2015) Rockies right fielder Carlos Gonzalez will bat second against the Brewers on Opening Day Monday.

The full Rockies lineup for Opening Day: CF Charlie Blackmon, RF Gonzalez, SS Troy Tulowitzki, 1B Justin Morneau, 3B Nolan Arenado, LF Corey Dickerson, C Nick Hundley, 2B DJ LeMahieu, SP Kyle Kendrick.


Rockies' Carlos Gonzalez says knee problem just fatigue


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(3/28/2015) After leaving Friday's game with left knee soreness, Rockies outfielder Carlos Gonzalez pronounced himself okay on Saturday. 

Gonzalez said it was "more fatigue than anything" per MLB.com's Thomas Harding.

As a precaution, Gonzalez wasn't in the Rockies' starting lineup on Saturday.  


Carlos Gonzalez leaves Rockies' game with sore knee


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(3/28/2015) Rockies outfielder Carlos Gonzalez left Friday's game in the fourth inning with a sore left knee. 

That's the same knee that Gonzalez had season-ending patella tendon surgery on last August. 

His knee began bothering him after he caught a fly ball in the fourth inning. He was removed from the game. 

Gonzalez is hitting .360 this spring. 


Rockies' CarGo: I felt like I was flying around the bases


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/19/2015) Rockies outfielder Carlos Gonzalez made his sixth appearance this spring since his return from August knee surgery, which ended his 2014 season early. Gonzalez had a double and one run in three at-bats against the Diamondbacks, but the most encouraging thing was how he felt after the game.

“I felt like I was flying,” Gonzalez said about his fourth-inning double, per The Denver Post. “I thought I was going to catch (Troy Tulowitzki) at third base. He took a triple away from me.

“I felt really good coming out of the box. I would have gone to third base on that play. It was a hard line drive. And when you’re running from first base like Tulo did, you have to make sure that ball is past you first and then start running. Especially with no outs, you don’t want a double play right away. It was a good read for me. It was nice to see him run too, from first base.”

Gonzalez is batting .308 (4 for 13) with two doubles, two walks, one strikeout and one run this spring.

“I’m feeling a lot better now," he said. "I’m not thinking about my legs anymore. Just go out there and compete and concentrate on putting good swings to the ball and in the outfield, trying to get a good jump. It’s getting better. Mentally, I feel really good to go. Physically, things are going well.

“The last couple games, I feel like I can take extra bases. That’s a really good sign. It’s only been four or five games. Feeling like that is a huge thing for me. I put a lot of work in this offseason to get to this point.”


Rockies' Carlos Gonzalez seeing the ball well at the plate


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(3/14/2015) Rockies outfielder Carlos Gonzalez is feeling confident coming off knee surgery. Gonzalez hit a ground-rule double in Saturday's game and likes how he is feeling at the plate, reports the Denver Post.

"I feel good, better than I expected after I didn't play for, what, six months?" said Gonzalez, who’s coming off left knee surgery last August. "You always have your doubts when coming off a long break, but I'm seeing the ball really, really well. And I'm making good contact, which is important for spring training." 

Gonzalez said he was planning to go the other way heading into the game.

"That was a big at-bat for me," he said. "That was one of the things that I set on my mind before the game. Just try to hit the ball the other way and get some bat speed and hit the ball in the air. All of the contact that I made before was groundballs. The timing is going to come back the more I play, and I feel good."


Rockies' Tulowitzki, Gonzalez in lineup Monday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/9/2015) Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki and outfielder Carlos Gonzalez are in the starting lineup for Monday's game against the Reds.

Gonzalez, who is on his way back from August knee surgery, will bat second. Tulowitzki, who is recovering from August hip surgery, is slotted third. Both players have been ahead of schedule this spring.


Rockies expect Troy Tulowitzki, Carlos Gonzalez to play Monday


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(3/8/2015) Rockies manager Walt Weiss said Sunday he is expecting shortstop Troy Tulowitzki and outfielder Carlos Gonzalez to play in Monday's game against the Reds, reports The Denver Post.

Tulowitzk is working his way back from hip surgery in August, while Gonzalez is recovering from knee surgery in August. Both are ahead of schedule as they work their way back.


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.
