Rockies outfielder Carlos Gonzalez left Wednesday night's home game vs. the Giants with what's being described as left index finger inflammation, according to a tweet from the Denver Post's Nick Groke.

The two-time All-Star did not come out to start the eighth inning, instead having his spot in left field filled by Brandon Barnes. The 28-year-old is considered day-to-day and will likely have further tests done on Thursday. He was 0-2 with a walk before leaving the game.

In the same game, Giants pitcher Matt Cain exited in the fourth inning with what's being diagnosed as a strained right hamstring.
