Rockies Vs. Phillies: Carlos Gonzalez Not Starting, But Could Pinch Hit

The Colorado Rockies offense in game one of their series against the Philadelphia Phillies doesn't look particularly biting just by the line up alone. Both Carlos Gonzalez and Troy Tulowitzki, the two bona fide stars on the team, are missing due to injury.

Fortunately, according to a tweet by Tracy Ringolsby, the Rockies might get at least one shot to see one of their stars on Tuesday night for a spell, as Cargo might be able to pinch hit:

Gonzalez has been listed as 'day to day' with his injury, so he probably won't be doing any fielding for a bit. As Ringosbly also says in the tweet, Troy Tulowitzki will not be playing and is still seeking more tests to determine what is wrong with the latest, lingering injury that he suffered.
