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.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

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.

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Rockies, Mets blockbuster unlikely to come together


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(7/30/2014) The Rockies and Mets have gotten together a few times to discuss major deal involving Troy Tulowitzki and Carlos Gonzalez, but CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman reports Wednesday any move is unlikely to come before Thursday's deadline.

"Unless we do speed dating, I think that's safe to say [that any deal will wait until winter]," one person involved in the talks told Heyman.

Gonzalez and Tulowitzki are both under long-term deals with the Rockies, but the team's struggles have pushed them into considering a move. The Mets would likely have to part with much of their young pitching talent to get the deal done, but that will likely have to wait until the offseason. The report also indicates a deal for Gonzalez is more likely than Tulowitzki, once talks resume after Thursday.
