Colorado Rockies OF Carlos Gonzalez (knee) had knee surgery Tuesday, Aug. 19, and he might not be ready for the start of spring training. While the surgery was successful, head athletic trainer Keith Dugger said it's too early to tell if Gonzalez will be ready for the spring. "We really don't know how he's going to be until that 4 1/2- to 5-month mark," Dugger said. "He might be a little delayed in spring training. But our goal is to get him there and get him ready."

Colorado Rockies OF Carlos Gonzalez (knee, ankle) is unlikely to play again this season after playing in only 70 games. His MRI exam revealed more damage Wednesday, Aug. 13, so he will now visit with the team's training staff to decide on a treatment plan. Head trainer Keith Dugger said the team is exploring options including surgery, platelet-rich plasma injections or stem-cell therapy. The only chance Gonzalez can return this year is if it's determined that rest and rehab can get him back on the field, which is unlikely.
Fantasy Tip: A team can't succeed when its top two players can't stay on the field. Car-Go and Troy Tulowitzki are both likely out for the season now. It's not a foregone conclusion that Gonzalez will miss the rest of the year, but there's a very small chance we'll see him again. You can probably cut him in all leagues. Depending on the timetable for Michael Cuddyer, Drew Stubbs will continue to have short-term value in deep mixed leagues.

Colorado Rockies OF Carlos Gonzalez (knee) has slightly increased damage to his patella tendon. Gonzalez, club officials and doctors will consult Thursday, Aug. 14.
Fantasy Tip: The team already lost Troy Tulowitzki for the season, and with the team well out of contention it is unlikely we see Gonzalez again this season as well. Fantasy owners in re-draft leagues will want to hang onto him for now, but if he is deemed out for the season, there would be no sense keeping him rostered.

Colorado Rockies OF Carlos Gonzalez (knee, ankle) was placed on the 15-day disabled list with left patella tendonitis and a right ankle sprain. 1B Ben Paulsen was recalled from Triple-A Colorado Springs.
Fantasy Tip: Drew Stubbs will likely be the benefactor with more playing time. He has good power and speed but has failed to hit for a high enough average to warrant consistent playing time. Pick him up in NL-only leagues. Place Car-Go on your disabled list. It's unknown how long he'll miss, but he could return in a couple of weeks.
