Rockies Are Banged-Up & In Philly Tonight
The Rockies start a 3-game series with the Phillies tonight in Philadelphia. Colorado is coming off consecutive losses to the Detroit Tigers and have lost 10 of their past 11 games. Yesterday was a day off. Tonight's game with the Phillies is at 5:05 on Root Sports.
The Rockies will likely be without Carlos Gonzalez tonight. He did not play on Sunday because of a strained knee. A MRI did not reveal any structural damage, but Car-Go is considered day-to-day. It all depends on how his knee responds to treatment and will likely be a game-time decision.
TULO CHECKED FOR HERNIA
Meanwhile, Troy Tulowitzki was in Philadelphia Monday to consult with a doctor to determine whether he has a sports hernia. Tulo has had chronic pain in his left groin area. The Rockies said Monday that they will not know the results of the examination until today.
