DENVER (AP) — Rookie outfielder Carlos Gonzalez has been held out of the Colorado Rockies’ lineup after suffering a puncture wound to his left hand.

The Rockies say Gonzalez hurt himself when he caught a steak knife as it fell off a plate while he was putting a dish in the kitchen sink at home after Saturday’s win over the San Francisco Giants. He needed one stitch to close the wound and is day to day.

Gonzalez is hitting .287 with eight homers and 19 RBIs in 56 games this season. He was 1 for 3 and scored two runs in Colorado’s 14-11 win Saturday night.

Seth Smith started in left and was the leadoff batter against the Giants on Sunday.
