Rockies Place Carlos Gonzalez On Bereavement List, Recall Charlie Blackmon

The Colorado Rockies announced Saturday that they had placed outfielder Carlos Gonzalez on the bereavement list.

Gonzalez will take time away from the team to attend to a death in the family. Charlie Blackmon will be called up from Triple-A Colorado Springs to take Gonzalez's roster spot. Bereavement leave is a minimum of three days to a maximum of seven days.

Gonzalez has been enjoying a fine season, including being named to the 2012 All-Star game. He came into Saturday hitting .320 with 20 homers and 79 RBI.

Blackmon has MLB experience, appearing in 27 games last year for the Rockies. In that time, he hit .255 with one homer and eight RBI. The left-hander is hitting .303 for Colorado Springs this season
