Outfielder Carlos Gonzalez was sore but not limping Tuesday, leaving the Rockies' best player this season convinced that he will make a start tonight against the Phillies after missing two games because of pain behind his right knee.

"I am going to be in there. They just thought I could use the extra day to get better," he said.

There is some fluid where the pain is located, Gonzalez said, but he's not concerned. He hasn't had the knee drained and doesn't think it's necessary.

"If it gets worse, maybe we will do something besides rest," Gonzalez said.
