Colorado Rockies OF Carlos Gonzalez (knee) will begin running the bases next week.
Fantasy Tip: Car-Go is still a top outfield option in fantasy, but he's no longer worth a first-round pick. See if you can snag the 29-year-old at an injury discount in the first few rounds.

Colorado Rockies OF Carlos Gonzalez (knee) crushed two home runs during batting practice in spring training Friday, Feb. 20, and he maintains that he's healthy after having left knee surgery last August. Gonzalez hit only .238 with 11 home runs and 38 RBI in 70 games last year. "I can put all my weight back, sit and wait for the ball -- something that I wasn't able to do last year," said Gonzalez. "It's my back knee, and it's really important to stay back. I have a leg kick, and last year I had a difficult time staying back on pitches." However, Gonzalez may not take part in many spring game, as the main focus is being ready for opening day.
Fantasy Tip: If not for the injuries, Car-Go would surely be a first-round fantasy baseball selection. There's plenty to like when Gonzalez is healthy, and hitting at Coors Field surely doesn't hurt. He'll still come off the board in the early rounds of drafts, and if he stays healthy for an entire season, look out. You best make sure to plan for the worst, though.

Colorado Rockies SS Troy Tulowitzki and Carlos Gonzalez might be on the trade market this offseason, but new general manager Jeff Bridich is still unsure if the team will move forward and sell either one of them. "They're marquee guys," Bridich said. "It's the best shortstop in the game when healthy, and it's arguably the best left fielder in the game when healthy. The recognition of that type of talent makes it tough to swallow the pill of wanting to trade these guys." Gonzalez is owed $53 million over the next three years, and Tulowitzki is guaranteed $118 million through 2020.
