After their stunning trade of franchise shortstop Troy Tulowitzki, the Rockies are said to be planning to move star outfielder Carlos Gonzalez, as well.
Gonzalez is due $43 million through 2017 and has a $1 million signing bonus if he is traded, similar to the $2 million kickback that Tulowitzki received in his trade. In 90 games this season, Gonzalez has been hitting .278 with a .332 on-base percentage with 20 home-runs and 51 RBIs.
There is a lot of concern surround CarGo, with his road splits, salary and injury risk all playing into the mix of a potential trade. The Angels have been a possible destination, even after their acquisition of Shane Victorino, but he isn't considered a top priority for them.

Marc Carig of Newsday adds that the Mets are not in on Gonzalez at this point, either.
And no, I already hear the Mets aren’t in on CarGo. I know you’re going to ask.— Marc Carig (@MarcCarig) July 28, 2015
