Rockies' Carlos Gonzalez says knee problem just fatigue
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(3/28/15) After leaving Friday's game with left knee soreness, Rockies outfielder Carlos Gonzalez pronounced himself okay on Saturday.
Gonzalez said it was "more fatigue than anything" per MLB.com's Thomas Harding.
As a precaution, Gonzalez wasn't in the Rockies' starting lineup on Saturday.
Carlos Gonzalez leaves Rockies' game with sore knee
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(3/28/15) Rockies outfielder Carlos Gonzalez left Friday's game in the fourth inning with a sore left knee.
That's the same knee that Gonzalez had season-ending patella tendon surgery on last August.
His knee began bothering him after he caught a fly ball in the fourth inning. He was removed from the game.
Gonzalez is hitting .360 this spring.
Rockies' CarGo: I felt like I was flying around the bases
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(3/19/15) Rockies outfielder Carlos Gonzalez made his sixth appearance this spring since his return from August knee surgery, which ended his 2014 season early. Gonzalez had a double and one run in three at-bats against the Diamondbacks, but the most encouraging thing was how he felt after the game.
“I felt like I was flying,” Gonzalez said about his fourth-inning double, per The Denver Post. “I thought I was going to catch (Troy Tulowitzki) at third base. He took a triple away from me.
“I felt really good coming out of the box. I would have gone to third base on that play. It was a hard line drive. And when you’re running from first base like Tulo did, you have to make sure that ball is past you first and then start running. Especially with no outs, you don’t want a double play right away. It was a good read for me. It was nice to see him run too, from first base.”
Gonzalez is batting .308 (4 for 13) with two doubles, two walks, one strikeout and one run this spring.
“I’m feeling a lot better now," he said. "I’m not thinking about my legs anymore. Just go out there and compete and concentrate on putting good swings to the ball and in the outfield, trying to get a good jump. It’s getting better. Mentally, I feel really good to go. Physically, things are going well.
“The last couple games, I feel like I can take extra bases. That’s a really good sign. It’s only been four or five games. Feeling like that is a huge thing for me. I put a lot of work in this offseason to get to this point.”
Rockies' Carlos Gonzalez seeing the ball well at the plate
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(3/14/15) Rockies outfielder Carlos Gonzalez is feeling confident coming off knee surgery. Gonzalez hit a ground-rule double in Saturday's game and likes how he is feeling at the plate, reports the Denver Post.
"I feel good, better than I expected after I didn't play for, what, six months?" said Gonzalez, who’s coming off left knee surgery last August. "You always have your doubts when coming off a long break, but I'm seeing the ball really, really well. And I'm making good contact, which is important for spring training."
Gonzalez said he was planning to go the other way heading into the game.
"That was a big at-bat for me," he said. "That was one of the things that I set on my mind before the game. Just try to hit the ball the other way and get some bat speed and hit the ball in the air. All of the contact that I made before was groundballs. The timing is going to come back the more I play, and I feel good."
Rockies' Tulowitzki, Gonzalez in lineup Monday
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(3/9/15) Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki and outfielder Carlos Gonzalez are in the starting lineup for Monday's game against the Reds.
Gonzalez, who is on his way back from August knee surgery, will bat second. Tulowitzki, who is recovering from August hip surgery, is slotted third. Both players have been ahead of schedule this spring.
|2014 Summary: Injuries have sapped Carlos Gonzalez's playing time throughout his career, but they played an even bigger role last season. He missed more than a month with a lingering finger injury and had his season prematurely ended when he had surgery on his left knee in August. Perhaps because he was rarely healthy, Gonzalez experienced downturns in every aspect of his game. His .238 batting average was the lowest of his career, his 11 home runs was the lowest total of his Rockies career and he attempted three stolen bases over the course of the season.|
Playing time status: Gonzalez has never played more than 145 games in a season, but last season's 70 games were his lowest total to date. His 2015 campaign could get off to a late start as he recovers from knee surgery, so while Gonzalez is all but certain to play more this season, he could miss time yet again.
2015 Outlook: If he can make a full recovery from 2014's injuries, Gonzalez should be able to recover most, if not all, of his power. But he may never return to being a 20-steal player. A trend toward higher strikeout rates also makes it improbable that Gonzalez will resume his previous string of high batting averages. For the first time in years, Gonzalez should not be included among the elite tier of outfielders, but rather a top 20 option to be drafted in the latter portions of the early rounds.
