DENVER (AP) - The Colorado Rockies may shut down injury-riddled outfielder Carlos Gonzalez for the rest of the season.
Gonzalez is on the disabled list with left knee tendinitis and a sprained right ankle. He was out earlier this season after doctors found and removed a small tumor in his left index finger.
Colorado manager Walt Weiss said before the game Thursday that Gonzalez will meet with the trainer and doctors to decide the best course of action. Weiss said that ''it's gotten to the point you have to do something.''
Gonzalez said he might try platelet-rich plasma (PRP) treatment. Asked if he will be back this season, he simply said, ''hopefully.''
The last-place Rockies are already missing All-Star shortstop Troy Tulowitzki, who will undergo season-ending hip surgery Friday in Vail, Colorado.
