Carlos Gonzalez (finger) has been placed on the 15-day disabled list.
Finally. It was tough to sit by and watch the Rockies sit on their hands, hoping that CarGo could play through the injury. If anything, their indecision may have made it worse. Nevertheless, Gonzalez is out for the next 15 days and shouldn't need more than that so long as there is no structural damage to the finger. Corey Dickerson should see the biggest increase in playing time with Gonzalez on the shelf.ANALYST: Howard Bender
Henry Owens will make his spring-training debut Friday.
While Owens' ERA jumped with his move to Triple-A last season, his K:BB spiked, leaving the Red Sox believing that he could be ready fro a jump to the majors soon. He'll debut this spring but will likely open the year at Triple-A to hone his craft. Should he dominate, the team could potentially bring him up for the second half. Analysis: Howard Bender
Hank Conger is dealing with a sore left wrist.
With the Astros saying that Evan Gattis will not play behind the plate at all this season, Conger steps in as the unequivocal back-up to Jason Castro. He's not really competing with Max Stassi who is seeing time in camp right now. Conger is day-to-day but should be just fine in a few days. Analysis: Howard Bender
