Gonzalez was one of the riskier first-round picks this season due to a lingering finger issue that went unaddressed in the offseason. Despite the concern, he has performed admirably hitting four homeruns and driving in 14 runs. Unfortunately another injury has emerged that could be a lingering problem.
Gonzalez exited Sunday's game in the sixth inning with what is being reported as a knee tendinitis. While more common in basketball, knee tendinitis is a frequently diagnosed and problematic condition that often involves the quadriceps tendon. This specific tendon is the conjoined tendon of the quadriceps muscles located on the front of the thigh. Tendinitis often results following excessive force on the tendon or with constant, repetitive motion. The tendon becomes inflamed, causing pain and discomfort before, after, or during activity depending on the severity.
