CarGo had been bothered by discomfort in the finger for the past month. It was initially diagnosed as inflammation and he tried to play through it, but his ability to grip a bat become a real issue. The 28-year-old owns an outstanding .877 career OPS. This season his OPS was at a sluggish .756 through 52 games.
