Carlos Gonzalez tweeted he had successful exploratory surgery on his left index finger on Tuesday.
This is a good first step for CarGo and hopefully we will know more about the extent of his injury and the timetable for his return. The Rockies and his Fantasy owners need his bat in their lineups with the amount that was invested in him. This finger issue has been bothering him since early May and finally came to a head when the Rockies placed him on the disabled list last Wednesday. Corey Dickerson will continue to serve as the left field while Gonzalez is on the shelf.ANALYST: Drew Phelps
Mo Williams (knee) will play Friday against the Wizards.
As he has been playing through this knee issue, Williams' shooting percentage has been dreadfully low (23-percent). Considering this, do exactly what the Hornets are doing: play him with caution. Williams is a tealented guard, but be reasonable with your expectations, as he has struggled with his shot while dealing with the injury. Analysis: Dom Murtha
Brad Miller not in the Mariners lineup Friday because of an illness.
Considering Miller committed an atrocious 18 errors in a mere 107 games last season, one would be led to believe that he has the plate presence of Tony Gwynn in order to hold down the Mariners starting shortstop position, however that is not at all the case, as Miller hit a lowly .221, with 10 homers, 36 RBI, and boasted an inexcuseable .288 OBP in 2014. Stay away from him in drafts. Analysis: Dom Murtha
