Rockies add Carlos Gonzalez to disabled list; Brett Anderson, Troy Tulowitzki also battling injuries

PHOENIX - Just when it seems as if it can't get any worse for the Rockies, it got worse Sunday with injury news regarding Brett Anderson, Carlos Gonzalez and Troy Tulowitzki.

Anderson, the left-handed starter who has missed most of the season with a broken finger, has been diagnosed with a bulging disc in his lower back. Anderson will consult with a specialist on Monday to find out the next step, but according to Rockies head trainer Keith Dugger, there is a good chance Anderson will miss the rest of the season.

Gonzalez, struggling to stay on the field because of a sprained right ankle and tendinitis in his left knee, was placed on the 15-day disabled list Sunday. The Rockies hope he can return to finish out the season, but there is a chance he will be shut down.

Tulowitzki, already on the DL as he battles problems in his left hip area, returned to Denver to continue with the treatment. He had been with the Rockies in Arizona, but he is not close to rejoining the team or going on a minor-league rehab assignment. According to Dugger, Tulo is still feeling "on-and-off discomfort" in his hip. Tulowitzki will continue to consult with specialists to aid in his healing process.
