Here’s the update from the official Twitter account of Rockies outfielder Carlos Gonzalez:
Ouch. If there’s any positive to take away from the situation, at least it happened during the offseason. As we have seen numerous times before, an appendectomy could put a player on the shelf for weeks at a time. Gonzalez figures to fall behind with his workouts, but there should still be plenty of time for him to get ready for the regular season assuming no setbacks.
Gonzalez, 28, hit .302/.367/.591 with 26 home runs and 70 RBI in 110 games last season. He dealt with a nagging finger injury for most of the second half.
