Rockies outfielder Charlie Blackmon working on plate discipline
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(3/15/15) Rockies outfielder Charlie Blackmon is struggling at the plate this spring, going just 1 for 8 so far. Even though he missed Wednesday's game with an abdominal injury, Blackmon wants to show more discipline at the plate and wait on pitches, reports MLB.com.
"I'm trying to see a lot of pitches," Blackmon said. "The other day, I took a 2-0 pitch on purpose [Friday while facing White Sox pitcher Jose Quintana, against whom he singled earlier in the game]. I want to be comfortable hitting later in the count, deeper in the count, with more strikes. In the season, if I get a 2-0 pitch over the plate, I'm going to try to hit it real hard. I'm not going to be trying to extend the at-bat."

|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(3/11/15) Rockies outfielder Charlie Blackmon, who has been slowed by an abdominal injury, will make his spring debut Wednesday against the Mariners, per The Denver Post.

Rockies' Charlie Blackmon still on pace for mid-week game
|by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com|
|(3/9/15) Rockies right fielder Charlie Blackmon is still expecting to make his Cactus League debut this week.
"I'm going to try to get all facets of my game sharp in spring training," Blackmon said, per MLB.com. "I expect to run a little bit — open up the playbook a little."
Blackmon has been dealing with abdominal injury that has kept him from playing thus far.
A year ago, Blackmon hit .288 with 19 home runs and 72 RBI.

Rockies' Charlie Blackmon hoping for more consistency
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
|(3/6/15) Rockies outfielder Charlie Blackmon is hoping for more consistency in 2015, according to the Denver Post.
Blackmon had a breakout season in 2014, but admits it's hard to be on every single game. "Last year, I swung the bat really well at certain times," he said. "But you go through a lot of ups and downs over 162 games, and that was a learning experience. I think that's going to help me this year."
Blackmon said his strong start made him a target for other teams, and that may have contributed to a slight slump during the season. Blackmon added that he's hoping to hit the ball to all fields this season.
Manager Walt Weiss is hoping Blackmon can deliver more of the same. "I don't know if he necessarily has to have an encore. I'm thinking more of the same," Weiss said. "I think Charlie would say that he wants to be more consistent."
The 28-year-old Blackmon hit .288/.335/.440 over 593 at-bats last year.
|2014 Summary: Charlie Blackmon entered spring training as one of several candidates to compete for the starting center field job, and he emerged as the opening day starter. A hot April (.374, 5 HR, 7 SB) cemented his playing time, and he spent most of the season shifting between center and right field. Blackmon provided stolen bases at a steady pace, finishing with 28, but his production sagged otherwise. From May 1 forward, Blackmon batted .271 with 14 home runs. His full-season numbers were enough to place him 15th among outfielders in Fantasy points.|
Playing time status: With Michael Cuddyer out of the Rockies' outfield mix, Blackmon has an even clearer path to regular playing time this season.
2015 Outlook: Blackmon had never hit for much power in the majors prior to early last season, and there wasn't much over the last four months, so hopes for a 20-homer season could be unreasonable. As a presence at the top of the order, Blackmon should score plenty of runs and be good for 20 steals. While he won't likely be a top 15 outfielder again, Blackmon is a solid middle-round target in all standard mixed league formats.
