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
Odubel Herrera will bat leadoff for the Phillies on Sunday.
The Phillies like his bat, which is why they made him a Rule 5 pick from Texas. He figures to play all three outfield positions as well as second base this spring. He will likely be a bench player out of camp if he can hit this spring. He did show some power development in the Venezuelan Winter League, but it remains to be seen if that is something that moves forward for him or not. Analysis: Ivar G. Anderson
