PHOENIX -- The Colorado Rockies placed outfielder Carlos Gonzalez on the 15-day disabled list Sunday with left knee tendinitis and a sprained right ankle. Gonzalez left Fridays game at Arizona after going 0 for 3 with three strikeouts. It is his second trip to the DL this season after inflammation in his left index finger sidelined the slugger for five weeks. "You can see mental stress on him, you can see physical stress," Rockies trainer Keith Dugger said. "He made the decision to take time off, so thats where we are right now. Were going to get that ankle right. We know hes got tendinitis, weve been dealing with it. We know it isnt going away overnight or even in a week." Gonzalez is batting .238 with 11 homers and 38 RBIs in only 70 games this season. "We felt like it got to a point where it wasnt getting any better," manager Walt Weiss said. "Defeating the purpose to send him out there ... give him some time for those nagging injuries to calm down." Weiss added that hed like to see Gonzalez play again this season, hopefully. The Rockies recalled Ben Paulsen from Triple-A Colorado Springs to replace Gonzalez on the roster, and Paulsen was in the lineup at first base on Sunday. Last-place Colorado, beset with injuries all season long, got more bad news before its series finale against the Diamondbacks. Left-hander Brett Anderson will see a spine surgeon on Monday in Scottsdale, Arizona, to address a bulging disk in his lower back. Anderson, who missed three months earlier this season with a broken left index finger, was placed on the DL on Wednesday. He is 1-3 with a 2.93 ERA in eight starts this season. "Hes having some issues, not so much back pain but pain going down his leg," Dugger said. "Its not a quick fix by any means, even if we go the non-surgery route." Star shortstop Troy Tulowitzki remains on the disabled list with a left hip flexor strain but is feeling better, Dugger said. "He still has some on and off discomfort in the front of the hip there," he said. Dugger said Tulowitzki could have a torn labrum in his hip. Hes still not ready for a rehab assignment despite having been out since July 22, though he is working out. Calvin Ridley Jersey .

Andrej Nestrasils three-point night helped Grand Rapids to a 7-2 win over the Abbotsford Heat and a 2-0 lead in its best-of-five first-round series. The third-year pro scored his first two career AHL playoff goals and added an assist in the blowout victory. "Hes been good," said Griffins captain Jeff Hoggan. "He was in Toledo (ECHL) last year but hes a skilled player. When we lose guys like (Tomas Tatar) and (Tomas) Jurco, guys who go up to the Red Wings, we need somebody to fill that role and hes done a fantastic job for us." The Griffins now head back home in hopes of a sweep after taking both games at the Abbotsford Centre. The Griffins won 2-1 on Friday in double overtime. "Yesterday was the first game of the playoffs, so everyone was kind of nervous," said Nestrasil. "I felt that sometimes we were trying to make plays, even if they werent there. Today we started a little more simple and it came out of that. We didnt let them shoot. They scored two first-period goals, five shots on net, so were going to try to play better defensively, because when you play well defensively you get the offensive chances after." Ryan Sproul, the Game 1 overtime hero, and Teemu Pulkkinen each had a goal and two assists for Grand Rapids while Trevor Parkes, Cody Emmerton and Hoggan also scored for the visitors, whose parent club Detroit was eliminated from the NHL playoffs and is expected to send some bodies back for Game 3 on Wednesday. "Weve got some talented young guys back there," said Hoggan of rookie defencemen like Sproul. "This is the time when you want to see what theyre all about. Playoff hockey is the toughest hockey. For them to step up, its going to be huge for us to go on and go far. We know theyre capable and theyre doing it at crunch time." Petr Mrazek had to stop just 15 shots, compared to his 55-save performance the night before. Max Reinhart had a goal and an assist for Abbotsford, which may have played its final home game after it was announced last week that the franchise wwill not be back in the city next season.dddddddddddd. Emile Poirier had the other goal, while Joni Ortio stopped 25-of-30 shots before being pulled. Doug Carr mopped up, making 14 saves. Though the Heat were embarrassed on home ice, and cancelled their regular post-game presser, the Griffins know that Game 3 wont be easy. "We have to make sure its hard for them to get opportunities," said Nestrasil. "Every chance, they need to earn it and make sure they have to come through us all the time." Abbotsford opened the scoring at the 7:40 mark of the first. Reinhart stepped into a shot in the high slot. Mrazek kicked it right to Poirier, who quickly brought the puck to his forehand and snapped it blocker side for his first professional playoff goal. The visitors, however, tied the game not long after. Mattias Janmark drove hard to the net and centred for Parkes, who chipped it by Ortio for his first AHL playoff goal at 10:13. The Heat regained the lead with a power-play goal at 15:32. Reinhart tried to centre for Ben Hanowski but it ricocheted off the skate of Brennan Evans. Just 35 seconds later the Griffins again drew even when Sprouls one-timer from the point was deflected by Nestrasil. Grand Rapids scored a short-handed goal late in the first to take their first lead. Emmerton made a move around one defender, then fought off another and chipped the puck past Ortio while falling to his backside, giving Detroits 2006 second-round selection his first AHL playoff goal in five years. Hoggan doubled the lead two minutes into the second period when he took a cross-ice feed from Pulkkinen and fired a wrist shot over the glove of Ortio, giving him 14 career AHL playoff goals. Nestrasil chased Ortio at 11:19 of the second, snapping a shot short side from a bad angle. "I just wanted to dump the puck in, but nobody came to me," said the Prague native. "I was basically walking into the zone. I just threw it at the net and it went through. Im glad I can score a goal like that. Im glad we scored a lot of goals because it gives the guys confidence." Sproul scored a power-play goal at 6:45 of the third and Pulkkinen added another on the power play at 12:09.
