Carlos GonzalezRockies outfielder Carlos Gonzalez isn't ready to play yet, but it doesn't appear he will go on the disabled list.

Gonzalez skipped the team's batting practice before Thursday's game against the Brewers but did hit off a tee.

"My wrist doesn't hurt when I'm just standing here, but it hurts when I put weight on it or swing the bat," Gonzalez told Patrick Saunders of the Denver Post.

Manager Jim Tracy said Gonzalez is still day-to-day, but he doesn't want to rush Gonzalez or have him worried about his wrist.

"We want him to be to a place where CarGo is playing free and easy," Tracy told the newspaper.

Gonzalez had an MRI on Monday, and it showed no break. He did, however, receive a cortisone shot. Gonzalez left a game against the Royals on July 3 after running into the wall making a catch. See it here:

Gonzaelz has played in three games since the injury, twice as a defensive replacement. He went 0 for 4 in his only game since the injury, Friday against Washington. He entered the games on Saturday and Sunday but didn't make a plate appearance.
