Cargo in storage?..Lowrie, Bailey shelvedUNDATED (AP) - The Colorado Rockies may shut down injury-riddled outfielder Carlos Gonzalez for the rest of the season.
Gonzalez is on the disabled list with left knee tendinitis and a sprained right ankle. He was out earlier this season after doctors found and removed a small tumor in his left index finger.
Colorado manager Walt Weiss said Gonzalez will meet with the trainer and doctors to decide the best course of action.
Also in the majors:
- The Oakland Athletics have placed shortstop Jed Lowrie on the 15-day disabled list with a hairline fracture of his right index finger. Lowrie suffered the injury on Aug. 4 and attempted to play through the pain. He is hitting .238 with five home runs and 42 RBIs in 110 games.
- Rangers ace Yu Darvish has mild right elbow inflammation that isn't a long-term concern, although there is no timetable for his return to the rotation. The Japanese star went on the disabled list Wednesday and will miss at least two starts.
- The Cincinnati Reds say pitcher Homer Bailey is headed to the disabled list with a strained right elbow. Manager Bryan Price said Bailey thought he hurt his elbow while batting in his last start on Aug. 7. The veteran pitcher recently threw a light bullpen session, but it didn't feel any better.
