Carlos Gonzalez has been sitting since Thursday when he aggravated a sprained finger on his right hand.  Gonzalez had been battling the sprain to his middle finger for a while up to that point, but Thursday's incident made things worse.  Fortunately, Gonzalez will likely be making a return to the lineup today or tomorrow. Troy Renck of the Denver Post did not specifically ask Gonzalez about his return date, but after spending so much time around the players and in the locker room, Renck was confident enough to answer a Twitter question about Gonzlez's return. I could see him playing Monday or Tuesday @OneDCcat: @TroyRenck _Will Cargo be back for the braves series?” — Troy Renck (@TroyRenck) July 28, 2013 Gonzalez has been making a case for the National League MVP this season.  The Colorado Rockies are only six games back of first place.  They are four games under .500, though.  Gonzalez has helped keep them close enough to say they aren't officially out yet. This season, Gonzalez is hitting .297/.366/.597 with 26 home runs.  He leads the National League in slugging percentage and home runs.  Gonzalez made his second All-Star Game appearance this year and seems poised to make plenty more in the future.  In his first six years in the league, the 27-year old is hitting .299/.357/.530.
