Carlos Gonzalez (left index finger inflammation) is set to begin his rehab assignment on Monday following another batting-practice session Sunday at Coors Field.
Always thought Cargo was overrated and he has proven me right this season because he always gets hurt and hasn't produced first round numbers in three straight seasons. Why would the Rockies bring him back for three games before the all-star break? That is very strange to me. Anyways, do not start him in weekly lineups leagues as Cargo will only play one to two games this week.ANALYST: Mark Kaplan
Phillies recalled Cody Asche from Triple-A Lehigh Valley.
The Phillies seem ready to commit to Asche as their new starting left fielder which certainly gums up the outfield configuration for veterans like Ben Revere, Grady Sizemore and Jeff Francoeur. It also displaces Darin Ruf. While they may be happy with the defensive work he did down in the minors, Asche's bat never really heated up, so the team is still going to have some serious offensive woes. This plan may have looked good on paper, but it should be re-visited in a couple of weeks to see how things are panning out. Analysis: Howard Bender
