Carlos Gonzalez left Wednesday's game against the Miami Marlins after striking out in the sixth inning. His swing was perhaps a bit too mighty and ferocious and at first many probably feared his hand and/or finger hand been re-injured.
According to Jenny Cavnar's sideline report, CarGo was pulled as a precaution due to dizziness and not necessarily something that happened during his swing. It is an odd diagnosis thus far.
This is almost certainly good news, as anything unrelated to his prior injuries means he isn't likely to be nagged by this for the rest of the season.
The Rockies can ill-afford to lose the All-Star center fielder for any considerable length of time.

You can all exhale. This doesn't appear to be anything serious.
