While Colorado Rockies manager Walt Weiss doesn’t expect Carlos Gonzalez’s finger injury to require a stint on the disabled list, the outfielder told reporters – including Ian McCue of MLB.com – that he expects to have to play through pain for the remainder of the season after aggravating the ailment earlier this week. "It's sore," he said before Friday night's game. "I hurt it again, but it's a thing that I'm going to have to deal with probably the whole year. Just something that I need to rest, and I don't think we have time for rest right now." Gonzalez aggravated his finger sprain on Thursday during his first at-bat. He exited the contest following the plate appearance, and he was held out of last night’s lineup. The same injury caused Gonzalez to miss two games earlier this month, and he realized that it could be a condition that results in him taking days off for the remainder of the season when the discomfort becomes too much to bear. "I knew I was having pain, but I tried to play through it," he said. "I think it's just more important for me when I have day like that, just try to talk to [Weiss] and be honest and be on the bench." Gonzalez said the last thing he can afford to do is miss an extended period of time on the DL. That is likely the only way his finger injury will truly heal and perhaps stop lingering, but with the Rockies struggling to remain in the National League West race he doesn’t feel he can be out of the lineup any more than a few days. It’s hard to argue with Gonzalez, as he’s accounted for much of the team’s offense this season. Over 421 plate appearances, the 27-year-old has hit .297/.366/.597 with 23 doubles, six triples, 26 home runs and 19 stolen bases in 21 attempts.
