Colorado Rockies outfielder Carlos Gonzalez was assigned to the team's Triple-A affiliate, the Colorado Springs Sky Sox, to begin a minor-league rehab assignment.

Colorado Rockies outfielder Carlos Gonzalez will go to Triple-A Colorado Springs to begin a rehab assignment. 

According to MLB.com's Cody Ulm, Gonzalez will be rehabbing an inflamed left index finger:

"The Rockies were planning on sending Carlos Gonzalez (left index finger inflammation) out to begin his rehab assignment on Monday following another batting-practice session Sunday at Coors Field.

"As it turns out, the team had trouble securing a Monday flight to Round Rock, Texas, for Gonzalez to join Triple-A Colorado Springs for a four-game road series. So, the Rockies decided to just send him out a day early.

"'He'll do all pregame activities, and if (Gonazlez) checks out fine, then he's a go,' Rockies head athletic trainer Keith Dugger said.

"The advance flight also allows Gonzalez to get some rest in before beginning what is expected to be a short rehab assignment. The Rockies want Gonzalez back at the Major League level for a few games before the All-Star break. 

"With Thursday being an off-day for the Rockies before their last series of the first half against Minnesota, it seems like Gonzalez is destined for three games with Colorado Springs. 

"Gonzalez has been on the disabled list since June 5 and underwent surgery to remove a benign tumor from his left index finger June 10. He is batting .255 with eight home runs and 31 RBIs in 52 games."

The Denver Post's Nick Groke estimates Gonzalez's Triple-A assignment to last three games:  

"Carlos Gonzalez, who had a tumor surgically removed from his left index finger last month, left Denver on Sunday for Round Rock, Texas. But not on a glamorous vacation.

"He'll start for the Triple-A Colorado Springs Sky Sox on Monday against the Express to begin a minor-league rehab assignment. 

"Gonzalez will probably play three games for the Sky Sox, putting him in line for a return to the Rockies on Friday against the Twins at Coors Field.

"Gonazlez's Sky Sox start, though, is dependent on how he feels in pre-game batting practice. He was schedueld for BP in Denver on Sunday, but scheduling a late airline trip made it necessary for him to leave early."

On July 4, Groke's colleague at The Denver Post, Mark Kiszla, reported Gonzalez and his teammate, shortstop Troy Tulowitzki, are realistic about speculations which have either of them getting traded: 

"Free falling from playoff contention toward rock bottom, if the Rockies make a big move in 2014 it will be to trade shortstop Troy Tulowitzki or outfielder Carlos Gonzalez.

"'If one of us gets traded, you never know what's going to happen. One of us might end up winning a World Series,' Gonzalez told me as he sat in the Colorado clubhouse. 

"Tulo and CarGo are the Rockies. But their team seems doomed to failure. It has left them frustrated and open to a change of uniform. 

"The two Colorado stars, whose combined salaries total nearly $27 million this season, understand what immense value they could have on the trade market. In separate interviews Thursday, Tulo and CarGo talked frankly about the possibility of leaving Denver.

"'In Todd Helton, there's someone who's easy to look at his career here and how it played out. I have the utmost respect for Todd, but at the same time, I don't want to be the next in line as somebody who was here for a long time and didn't have a chance to win every single year,' said Tulowitzki, reviewing the 17 years Helton spent as the face of a franchise that never won a division title.

"'He played in a couple postseason games and went to one World Series. But that's not me. I want to be somewhere where there's a chance to be in the playoffs every single year.'

Gonzalez spoke about how his season's gone when interviewed by Kiszla: 

He said,"It has been terrible. I think the most important thing when I get back on the field is to just be me. Obviously, I was playing through a lot of pain and I wasn't playing the way I can play...I was playing bad."  

Gonzalez suited up for the Oakland Athletics for one season in 2008. He has been playing for the Rockies ever since. He has 816 hits, 133 home runs and 450 RBIs on a career .296 batting average in 743 games through July 7, per ESPN stats
