CarGo aggravates sprained finger

The Rockies could consider placing outfielder Carlos Gonzalez on the disabled list after he aggravated his sprained right middle finger.

Losing Gonzalez would be a big blow to a Colorado lineup that was overwhelmed by Mike Minor and the Braves in a 9-0 loss Wednesday night.

Minor allowed only two hits in seven scoreless innings and Brian McCann hit a three-run homer in Atlanta’s seven-run third.

Gonzalez left the game in the fourth inning. He aggravated the sprained finger on a swing in the first.

Manager Walt Weiss said the disabled list was a possibility for Gonzalez.

"I think it’s worth having a discussion," Weiss said. "I think he got it pretty good, too. It didn’t look good. It’s the same thing.

"We’ve talked about it; he’s probably going to be dealing with this for a little while. We’ll have to re-evaluate where he’s at."

Gonzalez’s injury affects his ability to grip the bat. He lost the bat on his follow-through while striking out to end the first. The bat hit catcher McCann’s shoulder.
