Gonzalez has tumor removed; Cuddyer return unknown

KUSA - Carlos Gonzalez underwent exploratory surgery today to have a tumor removed in his left index finger.

For the time being, Gonzalez will remain on the 15 day disabled list, but that timetable could be extended depending on how quickly he recovers.

The Rockies also announced that the shoulder injury Michael Cuddyer suffered while playing third base in Thursday's game against the Diamondbacks was a fractured bone in his shoulder socket. He's expected to miss six to eight weeks.

Rookie pitcher, Eddie Butler, who made his big league debut on Friday, is also dealing with a shoulder injury and has been placed on the 15 day disabled list as well.
