Gonzalez went 1-for-3 with a strikeout and a walk in Team Venezuela's 4-3 win over Team Italy on Monday.

EDGE Analysis

Monday's showing brought CarGo's World Baseball Classic batting line up to .313 with an .827 OPS. Gonzalez has come out with his thoughts on how the tournament positively impacts his performance during the regular season, and although the proof behind that correlation remains to seen, Gonzalez will have a few more opportunities to play in the Classic as his team takes on Puerto Rico, the Dominican Republic and Team USA in the coming days.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran slugger will head to the WBC as the senior member of the Venezuelan outfield, teaming up with the likes of Odubel Herrera, Ender Inciarte, and Hernan Perez.

Gonzalez is out of the lineup Wednesday against the Nationals, the Denver Post's Patrick Saunders reports.

EDGE Analysis

Gonzalez would have the platoon advantage against Nationals starter Stephen Strasburg, but perhaps manager Walt Weiss is factoring in his right fielder's .143 career average against Strasburg. It's also possible the Rockies are just looking to give Gonzalez a day off as he has missed time recently with a sore ankle. Either way, Gerardo Parra will get the start in right field and hit fifth Wednesday.

Gonzalez is back in the lineup for Monday's game against the Nationals.

EDGE Analysis

With the Rockies facing a lefty on Sunday, manager Walt Weiss decided to give Gonzalez's recently injured ankle a rest. It wouldn't be surprising if the Rockies took it slightly easy with Gonzalez over the next week or so, but for now, consider him good to go. He went 2-for-5 with a double Saturday, his first full game in return from the injury.

Gonzalez is out of the lineup Sunday against the Phillies.

EDGE Analysis

Gonzalez made his return to the lineup Saturday after a four-game absence, and went 2-for-5 with a double in the loss. He'll return to the bench Sunday, however, as lefty Adam Morgan will take the hill for the opposing Phillies. The move allows manager Walt Weiss to play matchups while preserving the health of Gonzalez at the same time.
