The Rockies are confident that outfielder Carlos Gonzalez will avoid the disabled list because of an ankle injury.
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 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.
