Rockies' Gonzalez starting to produce at the plate

Carlos Gonzalez seems to be putting his body in the right place to hit lately. While Gonzalez has been treading the Mendoza line in the early part of the season -- hitting .203 currently -- he’s been hitting better lately. The left-handed slugger discussed the mechanics of his hitting with MLB.com:"Hitting for me is putting myself in position to hit with my leg kick," he said....

Rockies striking out at historic pace

The Rockies picked up a rare win on Tuesday, but they still struck out 10 times. The team has now had double digit strikeout figures in seven consecutive games -- including a franchise record 18 times against Clayton Kershaw and five Dodger relievers last Friday. Major leaguers strike out more nowadays than they used to, but the way Rockies hitters are whiffing is high even by today’s...

Jorge De La Rosa out duels Zach Grienke in Colorado Rockies victory

  Despite being the Colorado Rockies ace, Jorge De La Rosa doesn’t often get the credit that he deserves. With Zack Grienke on the mound for the Dodgers, the Rockies were going to need a great start to have a chance to win. After a quick run courtesy of Carlos Gonzalez, De La Rosa led the team the rest of the way. On Saturday night in Los Angeles the left-hander quieted his doubters...

CarGo’s home run to end Rockies losing streak a thing a beauty

With the Rockies trailing 4-2 in the top of the ninth inning, there were two out and two on when Carlos Gonzalez approached the plate. The Colorado slugger in a slump saw fastball after fastball from Yimi Garcia before turning into Ken Griffey Jr. reincarnated, turning on a heater and driving it...

CarGo drops the baggage, drills game winner for Colorado Rockies

  Poetic justice. The Colorado Rockies were dancing with negative history, on the verge of losing their 12th straight game, down 4-2 in the top of the 9th inning with two outs and two on. It was only fitting that the player whose season has mirrored the team, a huge disappointment that has created doubt in even his greatest fans would step to the plate. Carlos Gonzalez, in vintage...

Carlos Gonzalez: From potential MVP to potential albatross

The Rockies had a chance to trade Carlos Gonzalez before season started. In fact they’ve had many chances over the last couple of years. Or at the very least they could have tried. They haven’t finished above .500 since 2010 (83-79) so it’s not like they kept him because they were in the midst of a playoff push. Now it looks like CarGo isn’t going anywhere but down. If that’s...

Troy Tulowitzki Contemplating Trade Request

The Colorado Rockies have started the year with an unimpressive 11-17 record, and are currently riding a 9-game losing streak. While they have many big names such as the defensive whiz-kid Nolan Arenado, former MVP Justin Morneau, and Gold-Glover Carlos Gonzalez, thus far they have not been able to put wins together. This is very unsettling to arguably their biggest name, shortstop...

Angels vs. Rockies Series Preview: Precious CarGo

The Rockies are coming to town and bringing some precious cargo with them in the form of Carlos “CarGo” Gonzalez. See what I did there? You see what I did there. Normally, playing the Rockies isn’t really worth noting, but bloggers, fans and reporters across the land have all come to the same conclusion that CarGo would sure be a logical fit for the Angels in their suddenly...

Did the Rockies Miss Their Window to Trade Carlos Gonzalez?

Carlos Gonzalez is slumping. That isn’t news to you, unless you don’t really pay that much attention to the Colorado Rockies. Even then, it still might not be news to you. Gonzalez, who from 2010-2013 hit 108 homers (tied for 18th-best in the game), and posted a .245 ISO (ninth-best) and 103.4 Off (13th-best), is […]

Daily SP Rankings: Weekend, May 9-11

Carlos Rodon! The excitement really begins on Saturday when the polarizing left-hander takes the hill against the Cincinnati Reds with an almost perfectly average 100.3 matchup rating. I say polarzing because while the consensus is pretty much that Rodon is going to be very good and is extremely polished for his age, he’s still extremely inexperienced and will be facing a good...

Rockies' Gonzalez struggling at the plate, but still loves to hit

Carlos Gonzalez has been struggling lately, but he’s not mad at his bats for it. He still wraps the handles of his bats with tape “meticulously, even lovingly,” according to Rockies beat writer Thomas Harding. CarGo expressed just how much he loves to hit:"This is my favorite thing to do," Gonzalez said. "If you're 0-for-2, 0-for-4, 0-for-15, when you get a hit, it feels really...

Video: Diamondbacks pitcher Archie Bradley drilled by comebacker

mlb.com Diamondbacks pitcher Archie Bradley was drilled by a line drive through the box off the bat of Rockies outfielder Carlos Gonzalez Tuesday night.  Here’s rather disturbing video of the before, during and after.  The sound of the impact is gruesome. As he rolled over, it looks like he’s hiding a tennis ball under his right cheek. Great news, however, came from Dbacks...

Arizona pitcher Bradley struck in face by line drive

  Archie Bradley has been hit in the face by a line drive off the bat of Colorado Rockies slugger Carlos Gonzalez, but it appears the Arizona Diamondbacks pitcher avoided a severe injury.

Padres lack lefty in the bullpen

Usually, teams have a lefty specialist in the bullpen to face slugging left-handed hitters late in games. The Padres currently don’t have that option after having optioned left-hander Chris Rearick to Triple-A and called up right-hander Cory Mazzoni. While the Padres are one of six teams with a rotation without a lefty, they are currently the only team without at least one left...

Rockies doing well despite lack of production from Carlos Gonzalez

Gonzalez might be the most fearsome slugger in a loaded Rockies lineup, yet he’s hardly been contributing to start this season. He’s hitting .167 through 66 at-bats with only two home runs and six RBIs. CarGo seems content though to answer questions about his play on the field rather than his health following a couple of injury-plagued seasons. According to the Denver Post, he...

Corey Dickerson might be the best MLB hitter you've never heard of

When you think of great hitters currently with the Rockies, Troy Tulowitzki, Carlos Gonzalez, Justin Morneau and perhaps Nolan Arenado come to mind. Corey Dickerson might be better than all of them though. He hit .312 last season -- just 7 points lower than teammate and NL batting champ Justin Morneau -- but was 24 plate appearances shy of qualifying for consideration among the NL...
