Gonzalez (hamstring) was placed on the 10-day disabled list Sunday, Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

Gonzalez has missed the last two games after tweaking his hamstring Wednesday against the Pirates. The veteran outfielder apparently didn't make enough progress in his recovery over the past couple of days, so the Rockies will play it safe and move him to the DL in order to open up a roster spot. With Mike Tauchman also being sent to Triple-A Albuquerque on Sunday, the team was able to promote David Dahl and Noel Cuevas to join the outfield rotation. We'll await further word on Gonzalez's rehab schedule and estimated return date.

Gonzalez is not in the lineup Friday against the Cubs, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Gonzalez exited Wednesday's game after tweaking his hamstring, but it seems like Thursday's off-day wasn't enough to get him back to 100 percent. Gerardo Parra will move over to right field to replace him, creating a chain reaction that will allow Ryan McMahon to enter the starting nine for the evening.

Gonzalez left Wednesday's game against the Pirates prematurely due to a right hamstring injury, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Gonzalez made a five-star catch in the fourth inning, but was lifted for pinch-hitter Gerardo Parra in the following half-inning. The severity of the issue is currently unknown, though it's at least a positive thing that he managed to stay in the game for a couple more batters after the initial injury. Thursday's off day could also help him get back in action for Friday's series opener with the Cubs.

Gonzalez went 2-for-3 with a home run, two RBI and a stolen base in Friday's win over the Nationals.

EDGE Analysis

Gonzalez took Tanner Roark deep in the fourth, and then drove in the go-ahead run with a sacrifice fly during his next plate appearance. He even put himself into scoring position in the ninth with a stolen bag, his second of the year. With one more stolen base, he will have matched his total from all of last year. He's also on a good pace with his third home run on the season, after a year in which he hit just 14. Gonzalez's power numbers were significantly down last year, and the early returns in 2018 are so far pretty encouraging.

Gonzalez is not in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Padres.

EDGE Analysis

As is often the case, Gonzalez will head to the bench with the opposition sending out a left-handed starter (Joey Lucchesi). Ian Desmond, Charlie Blackmon and Gerardo Parra will hold down the Rockies' outfield (from left to right) in his absence, opening up a spot for Pat Valaika to start at first base.

Gonzalez is not in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Braves, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Gonzalez will sit for the second time in the past four days as the Rockies square off against lefty Sean Newcomb and the Braves. The veteran outfielder's fantasy value will obviously take a hit if he continues to be withheld from the lineup against left-handed pitchers, though it's too early in the season to determine if he's entering a true platoon situation or not. Gerardo Parra will man right field, while Ian Desmond slots in at left and Pat Valaika takes over at first base.

Gonzalez went 2-for-4 with a triple, a home run and two RBI in Friday's 8-3 loss to the Braves.

EDGE Analysis

The homer was his first of the season, and not coincidentally it came in his first home season of the season. Gonzalez's 1:9 BB:K through eight games isn't ideal, but even if his hitting skills are in decline, the 32-year-old should be able to stay productive as long as he's starting half his games at Coors Field.

Gonzalez is not in the lineup Thursday against the Padres, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Gonzalez has started each of the Rockies' games to start the season, but with lefty Joey Lucchesi toeing the rubber for San Diego, the veteran will get his first off day of the season. This doesn't seem like a full-blown trend to sit CarGo against southpaws despite his low batting average against lefties the last two seasons, though. Ian Desmond will move into the outfield to replace him, allowing Pat Valaika to log a start at first base.

Gonzalez is expected to open the season as the Rockies' primary right fielder, Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

Since inking a one-year, $8 million pact with the Rockies two weeks ago, Gonzalez has only picked up 12 at-bats across four games during the Cactus League, but the team isn't worried about the veteran being up to full speed by the time Opening Day arrives. While he'll see regular at-bats to begin the campaign, Gonzalez may receive a shorter leash than he did last season, when he hit a disappointing .262 with 14 home runs across 534 plate appearances in what was a relatively healthy year for the oft-injured outfielder. Gonzalez was particularly vulnerable against southpaws, so he could be platooned more liberally this season as the Rockies look to optimize his performance. If Gonzalez's marks against right-handers should also take a step backward, it's not difficult to envision him falling into a bench role, especially if David Dahl stays healthy and proves ready for full-time work in the big leagues.
