Carlos Gonzalez was operated for appendicitis last night in Denver. He had strong stomach pain and went to the emergency room.

Better that he had the procedure now than closer to the season as the appendectomy always seems to screw things up for players at the plate. At least now he'll have ample time to recover and get his swing back before the season starts. Of course, the surgery that he didn't have -- the one to fix the sprained finger that kept him out for the final two months of the 2013 season -- could be the one that affects him the most. While he remains a top-10 overall fantasy pick, we're still seeing enough red flags to warrant monitoring his progress.
