Report: Carlos Gonzalez Has Tumor Removed From Finger


Rockies OF Carlos Gonzalez underwent exploratory surgery on his left index finger Tuesday, and the operation discovered a tumor which was then removed.



Gonzalez has been seeing doctors due to swelling in the index finger for some time, and the possibility of a foreign body causing the swelling was raised when Gonzalez underwent a hand examination in late May. Gonzalez tried to play through the swelling, but an inflammation on Tuesday sent him back to the 15-day DL.

Rockies doctors then recommended the exploratory surgery, which found and removed the tumor. No timetable has been set for his return.
