Though feeling better, CarGo not in lineup
PHILADELPHIA -- Carlos Gonzalez's strained left knee kept him out of the lineup for Tuesday's series opener against the Phillies, but he said he is feeling better.

Gonzalez, who sustained the injury in Saturday's loss, could play on Wednesday.

Manager Jim Tracy did not rule out Gonzalez pinch-hitting on Tuesday. He also did not commit to his left fielder returning on Wednesday.

"He's still in the day-to-day mode, and we'll have to wait and see how he reacts with regard to that knee," Tracy said. "Could he play tomorrow? It's possible. ... But we just have to wait and see and take it on a day-to-day basis."

Gonzalez, who tweaked the knee in the eighth inning on Saturday and was scratched on Sunday, leads Colorado with a .335 average, 17 home runs, 51 RBIs and nine stolen bases.
