Rockies OF Gonzalez goes back on DL with knee, ankle injuries

 

The Colorado Rockies have placed outfielder Carlos Gonzalez on the 15-day disabled list with left knee tendinitis and a sprained right ankle.

Gonzalez left Friday’s game at Arizona after going 0 for 3 with three strikeouts. It is his second trip to the DL this season after inflammation in his left index finger sidelined the slugger for five weeks.

Gonzalez is batting .238 with 11 homers and 38 RBI in only 70 games this season.

The Rockies recalled outfielder-first baseman Ben Paulsen from Triple-A Colorado Springs on Sunday to replace Gonzalez on the roster.
