Gonzalez has started 109 games for the Rockies this season and has hit all 30 of his home runs as the team's starting right fielder. The team has a scheduled off-day on Thursday in Pittsburgh, so Weiss said he'd consider holding Gonzalez out of the lineup in Wednesday's finale here, too, in order to give him extra rest.
With CarGo out, Weiss shuffled his lineup on Tuesday, inserting leadoff hitter Charlie Blackmon into the third spot. It was only the fourth time in 428 career games Blackmon hit third while veteran shortstop Jose Reyes moved into the leadoff spot
The Rockies made another late lineup change, too, scratching right fielder Brandon Barnes (stomach virus), moving Matt McBride to right and inserting Kyle Parker in left.
