CarGo fine after dizzy spell, dehydration

MIAMI -- Rockies All-Star outfielder Carlos Gonzalez was back in the lineup Thursday afternoon after leaving Wednesday night's game with dizziness and dehydration.

Of course, as Gonzalez mentioned after the game and manager Walt Weiss noted Thursday, accidentally swallowing his smokeless tobacco could not have helped.

"I talked to him last night after the game and he assured me he was fine and was going to be all right, so it's a nice name to write in a lineup," Weiss said. "He might've swallowed some dip or something. He landed hard, knocked the wind out of himself, swallowed some dip, dehydration, all those things were factors."
