I just heard on MLB TV that the Rockies have brought up Carlos Gonzalez from the minors today. He is going to play tonight at St. Louis and will bat seventh in the line up. To make room for CarGon they sent down Matt Murton to the Sky Sox. Here is a what The Denver Post had to say today.
COLORADO SPRINGS — Rockies top prospect Carlos Gonzalez has been promoted to the big-league club from the Triple-A Sky Sox.
Gonzalez, a centerpiece of the Matt Holliday trade, will join the Rockies in St. Louis. Matt Murton was optioned to the minor leagues.
Gonzalez, 23, was leading the minor-leagues with 59 RBIs. The outfielder was also leading the Sky Sox in homers (10), triples (7), extra base hits (29) and slugging percentage (.630).
I hope all of the AN nation joins me in wishing CarGon all the sucess in the world.
Update: CarGon is not in the line up today as Seth Smith is hitting seventh in left field.
