MLB Injury News:
Yesterday I wrote that the Rockies are unlikely to trade Carlos Gonzalez, but that isn't going to stop teams from pursuing him. The Chicago Cubs will heavily pursue him this offseason and others will as well. Over the offseason, you can expect to see about half the league check in with the Rockies about their star outfielder.
Two teams that reportedly really like Gonzalez are the New York Mets and Texas Rangers, according to Troy Renck of the Denver Post. He says the Mets and Rangers "covet" the 27-year old Gonzalez.
The one thing that may halt teams from pursuing him is that he will have surgery on his finger this offseason, according to Renck. Teams will be calling the Rockies frequently about their coveted outfielder, but a trade is unlikely to happen, even if he was healthy.
On the season, Gonzalez is hitting .302 with 26 home runs and 70 RBI's. Throughout his career, Gonzalez has battled injuries, but when he has been healthy, he has been one of the top outfielders in the game of baseball. If he can remain healthy for an entire season, he is more than capable of putting up 35 or more home runs.
