Carlos Gonzalez's Injury Keeps Outfielder Out Of Lineup

One day after Colorado Rockies outfielder Carlos Gonzalez left a game early due to tightness in his left groin, Ty Wigginton will start in the outfielder's place on Friday night against the Milwaukee Brewers. However, he will be available to pinch-hit. He told the Denver Post's Troy Renck that he should be able to start on Saturday.

Here is Friday's Rockies lineup:

CF Dexter Fowler
2B Jonathan Herrera
SS Troy Tulowitzki
1B Jason Giambi
RF Seth Smith
3B Jose Lopez
LF Ty Wigginton
C Chris Iannetta
P Jason Hammel

Jason Giambi is starting his second straight game after hitting three home runs and driving in seven runs on Thursday night.
