• Rockies outfielder Carlos Gonzalez, who hasn't played since Aug. 4 because of a right middle finger sprain, took a cortisone shot when he visited Dr. Thomas Graham in Cleveland this week and hopes it will allow him to hit off a tee in about a week. If the pain returns when he swings or otherwise puts his finger in a "compromising position," Gonzalez is likely to opt for surgery, according to Rockies head athletic trainer Keith Dugger. The surgery would have to occur by Nov. 1, so he will be able to recover and rehab for Spring Training in 2014.
• Weiss said he expects catcher Wilin Rosario to suit up again before the season ends. Rosario hasn't played since Tuesday due to a right calf strain, but Weiss said he has made slight progress.
• When asked if Thursday's 15-inning victory was the longest game Weiss had been a part of, he noted that he played all 15 innings in Game 5 of the 1999 NLCS when he was with the Braves.
"Emotionally, it's draining," Weiss said. "A game like that, there's a lot of chances to win a game, but you don't win -- the other team has chances. And so emotionally, it's draining, especially on top of the fact that it was the NCLS. The stakes were high."
