Carlos Gonzalez (left knee tendinitis) will visit a specialist on Wednesday to talk treatment options.
There is a good chance given his average draft position that CarGo is the WORST player in fantasy this season. A case can obviously be made for Chris Davis but even he is higher on most player raters than CarGo. It is hard to say he is droppable but given the number of ailments he is currently having and the fact that the Rockies are not in contention its difficult for me to believe he can make a difference to a teams playoff run.

George Springer went 2-for-4 with a double and one RBI in the Astros 6-2 loss to the Tigers on Friday.
Springer has now collected two hits in three straight games which has helped raise his average from .195 to .214 on the season. A concussion sidelined Springer in early May but he has played well since his return, hitting .282 with six runs, two home runs and four RBI. Fantasy owners will have to deal with the low batting average as Springer is once again on pace to rank among the league leaders in strikeouts but he’s already reached double-digit stole bases and could flirt with a 30/30 season given his potential.
