‘Fatty mass with tentacles’ removed from Carlos Gonzalez’s finger during surgery

carlos-gonzalezColorado Rockies outfielder Carlos Gonzalez has been dealing pain and inflammation in a finger on his left hand for some time, so the the team placed him on the 15-day disabled list last week.

On Tuesday, Gonzalez underwent surgery with a “foreign body” removed during the process.

As expected, more information regarding the procedure was released Wednesday.

Thanks to Rockies beat writer Thomas Harding (and trainer Keith Dugger), we now have a pretty accurate description of the mass removed from Carlos Gonzalez’s finger.

“These little benign tumors, which we hope it is, is probably the second most common finding in the finger besides cysts,” Dugger said via ESPN. “Usually repetitive trauma causes it.”

I’m far from an expert in the medical field, but I can see how something with tentacles could be the source of pain and swelling.
