Gonzalez out of lineup with strep throat
Carlos Gonzalez has strep throat and is out of the lineup for Colorado's game against Arizona.
He was feeling under the weather on Friday, but played through the illness. Tyler Colvin took Gonzalez's place in left field and batted sixth in the order Saturday.
Gonzalez is hitting .290 this season with four RBIs. He's still looking for his first homer of the year.
Before the game, the Rockies reinstated Charlie Blackmon from the 15-day disabled list and optioned the outfielder to Triple-A Colorado Springs.
The 25-year-old Blackmon was sidelined with turf toe.
He was hitting .255 last year when he fractured his right foot while rounding second base at Atlanta on July 7. The injury ended his season.
