Rockies | Carlos Gonzalez heading to DL

Colorado Rockies OF Carlos Gonzalez (finger) will be put on the 15-day disabled list with a sprained right middle finger Wednesday, Aug. 7. In a corresponding move, SP Jeff Francis will be recalled from the minors. Gonzalez had been dealing with the finger injury since July 7. The DL stint will be retroactive to Aug. 5. Francis will pitch out of the bullpen.

Fantasy Tip: Corey Dickerson and Charlie Culberson will split duties in left field with Cargo on the sidelines. Culberson will likely be the fourth outfielder, with Dickerson getting the first crack at the majority of at-bats if you're searching for depth in cavernous mixed formats.
