Colorado Rockies manager Walt Weiss told the Denver Post that he is confident outfielder Carlos Gonzalez will avoid the disabled list despite his sprained right ankle, and that a final decision will come Tuesday.

Gonzalez did not play in Colorado’s 4-0 loss to the Detroit Tigers on Sunday. He was injured in Friday’s loss to the Tigers trying to make a sliding catch down the rightfield line. 

Gonzalez has missed time this season with a left index finger injury. He is batting .237 with 10 home runs and 36 RBI in 66 games this season for the Rockies, whose 44-67 record is the worst in the National League. 

The team is already without MVP candidate Troy Tulowitzki, who's on the 15-day disabled list with a left hip flexor strain.
