Entering last night’s game, Colorado Rockies outfielder Carlos Gonzalez had been dealing with a lingering knee issue. Not only did he aggravate his knee, but he also rolled his ankle during a sixth-inning swing. The cut ultimately required Gonzalez to exit the contest, but he told Owen Perkins of MLB.com that he’s hopeful he’ll be able to return to the Rockies’ lineup today. "I twisted my ankle on the swing, and then I tried to avoid the ankle, and my body and the whole weight [came down] on the knee," Gonzalez said. "It's all right, just sore. Depends on how I feel tomorrow, I don't want to miss any games. Right now it feels good, but in the moment, I was in pain. It's going away, and hopefully I feel better and play tomorrow." After taking the awkward and painful cut, Gonzalez returned to the field, but he didn’t make it through an entire inning. He left the game during a pitching change after the Padres scored four runs without recording an out. Prior to exiting with the injuries, Gonzalez walked and hit two triples against San Diego Padres pitching. Gonzalez said after the game that the knee has been giving him problems throughout the season. "To be honest, [it's bothered me] since Spring Training," Gonzalez said. "I have good days and I have bad days, but it's a good thing that I've been playing through it. When I make a bad move, like I did on the plate, that's when it gets me. But the good thing is it goes away fast. The last thing I wanted to do was to be out of the game. Too bad I couldn't stay, but it's a really good thing that we got the win and I'll be ready for tomorrow." Gonzalez was replaced by Jonathan Herrera in left field. Other outfielders on the Rockies’ roster include Eric Young Jr. and Michael Cuddyer. It’s awful timing, as Gonzalez head been red hot of late, going 34-for-101 (.337) over his last 26 games with 10 home runs, four triples, four doubles and 27 RBI. On the season, the 27-year-old has hit .309/.390/.627 with 13 doubles, five triples and 17 home runs over 267 plate appearances. Follow @mlbinjurynews Looking for fantasy baseball advice?
