Colorado Rockies star outfielder Carlos Gonzalez was scratched from his rehab start with Triple-A Colorado Springs on Monday because of a flare-up of the injured middle finger on his right hand, the Denver Post reported.
Gonzalez was still scheduled to rejoin the Rockies on Tuesday but without a definite date to play, according to the Post.
"We could give him an MRI every day, but it's not going to get better until he rests," Rockies trainer Keith Dugger told the Post following Colorado's 10-8 loss to the Los Angeles Dodgers on Monday. "He has a tear, and unless you rest it six to eight weeks, it's not getting better."
But Dugger told the Post that the Rockies weren't yet planning to shut down Gonzalez for the season.
"Not yet," Dugger said. "I haven't even seen him."
Gonzalez has batted .302 in 103 games this season with 26 home runs and 70 RBIs.
