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
Nathan Eovaldi allowed four runs on seven hits with no walks and six strikeouts against the Mets on Sunday.
Eovaldi failed to build off his last outing and let the Mets get to him early, yielding four runs through the first three innings. Luckily the bats bailed him out and he was able to walk away with the no-decision after getting yanked in the fifth inning, having thrown 87 pitches (59 strikes). While Eovaldi showed some nice promise when he was with the Marlins, the move to the American League, the AL East and hitter-friendly Yankee Stadium has siphoned out what promise he actually had left. Being a fly ball pitcher in this environment does no bode well for strong ratios. He’ll face the Red Sox in Fenway for his next outing, one you probably want to keep him on the bench for.
