Carlos Gonzalez Re-injures Wrist On Pablo Sandoval's Triple

Colorado Rockies outfielder Carlos Gonzalez hurt his wrist again while trying to make a play on Pablo Sandoval's triple.

Colorado Rockies outfielder Carlos Gonzalez first injured his wrist on July 3 when he crashed into the wall during a game with the Kansas City Royals. He left the game and returned a few days later before sitting out the weekend before the All-Star Break. He injured it later that month and went on the disabled list for a few weeks.

He injured it again in Thursday's loss to the San Francisco Giants. On Pablo Sandoval's triple to right field, Gonzalez hit into the wall awkwardly once again. He stayed in for the rest of the inning, but didn't return to the field in the seventh inning. Troy Renck of the Denver Post believes Gonzalez will be out for at least a few games.

With less than two weeks of games left and the Rockies out of contention, Renck believes the Rockies will be cautious with this injury. It wouldn't be a stretch to see him shut down for the season, but we'll need to wait for more information to come out.
