Rockies outfielder Charlie Blackmon working longer counts in 2015
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(4/18/15) Rockies outfielder Charlie Blackmon has a goal this season: see more pitches at the plate, reports MLB.com. Blackmon is currently on a career-high pace at the plate with a .263 batting average in 10 games. He credits it to his patience at the plate early on.
"I started trying to see a few more pitches in spring training," Blackmon said. "I'm better deep in the count. It's better for the team to go deeper in the count. As a leadoff hitter you give your guys more chance to see the other pitcher's arsenal, and maybe earn a walk here or there."
Sometimes, Blackmon will take cuts just to keep pitchers from finding a rhythm.
"There will be times I'll be very aggressive to keep pitchers honest," he said. "That's by design. I don't always try to see 4.13 pitches. If I notice teams fall into a pattern one way or another, I'll come out of that and start hacking."
Rockies give Gonzalez, Morneau the night off vs. Dodgers' Kershaw
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(4/17/15) Rockies manager Walt Weiss gave outfielder Carlos Gonzalez and first baseman Justin Morneau the night off Friday against Dodgers right-hander Clayton Kershaw in Los Angeles. Morneau is 0-for-3 lifetime against Kershaw, while Gonzalez has five hits in 30 at-bats against the Dodgers southpaw.
With Gonzalez on the bench, Weiss chose to go with Charlie Blackmon in right field, Corey Dickerson in left field and Drew Stubbs in center field. Wilin Rosario started at first and batted cleanup in place of Morneau.
Rockies' Charlie Blackmon picks up three hits in loss to Cubs
|by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com|
|(4/12/15) Rockies outfielder Charlie Blackmon went 3 for 4 during Sunday afternoon's 6-5 loss to the Cubs.
One of Blackmon's hits went for a double, which was in the ninth inning. He hit an RBI single in the game too.
Rockies' Morneau, Blackmon rest Friday against Cubs
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(4/10/15) Rockies first baseman Justin Morneau and center fielder Charlie Blackmon were not in the starting lineup Friday against the Cubs. Chicago started left-hander Travis Wood.
Drew Stubbs replaced Blackmon in center field, while Wilin Rosario started at first base for Colorado.
Blackmon, who bats left-handed, is batting .143 (2 for 14) with one double and no RBI in three games. He also has one run, one walk and six strikeouts.
Morneau, who also bats left-handed, is batting .077 (1 for 13) with one double and no RBI in three games. He has no walks and one strikeout.
|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.
