|Adrian Gonzalez looking to return to more patient approach |
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(3/12/14) Dodgers first baseman Adrian Gonzalez has drawn four walks in 22 spring at-bats and has a .423 on-base percentage through nine games. Getting on base more via a free pass is something Gonzalez is working on, per The Los Angeles Times.
"I'm not going to go up there looking for a walk, but I do think I can get back to walking more," Gonzalez said.
When Gonzalez was with the Padres, he was an OBP machine. He led the majors in 2009 with 119 walks and had a .374 on-base percentage in five seasons with the Padres. Though, the last two seasons his OBP has been .343, and Gonzalez said that had a lot to do with the lineup protection he had in Boston and Los Angeles and lacked in San Diego.
"I went to Boston and I came here and it's like, 'They have to come after me, look at who's behind me,'" he said. "That shifted my mentality and made me more aggressive."
Gonzalez is looking to alter his approach in 2014, and thus far he's happy with the results.
"I've done a decent job of it so far this spring," he said. "I've walked three or four times and a lot of at-bats have gone deep into counts. There have been at-bats where I got frustrated because I walk and I'll say, 'I want to hit now,' but then I'm like, 'Stay with it.'"

|Adrian Gonzalez homers twice in Game 5 win |
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(10/16/13) Dodgers first baseman Adrian Gonzalez sparked the offense Wednesday, going 3 for 4 with three runs and two solo home runs in his team's 6-4 win over the Cardinals in Game 5 of the National League Championship Series.
Gonzalez hadn't homered since Game 1 of the previous round but has been an offensive factor throughout the postseason, hitting .343/.395/.657 in 35 at-bats. The only postseason game in which he hasn't recorded a hit is Game 2 of the NLCS, and he'll face Game 2 starter Michael Wacha when the teams meet Friday for Game 6.
|Adrian Gonzalez homers in Game 1 victory |
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(10/4/13) Dodgers first baseman Adrian Gonzalez went 2 for 5 with a two-run home run in Thursday's 6-1 Game 1 win over the Braves in the National League Division Series.
Gonzalez's third-inning home run stretched the lead to 4-0 and was his first career postseason homer. He also led off the fifth inning with a single and ended up on third base after a hit-by-pitch and a sacrifice bunt but found himself stranded in scoring position.
|Adrian Gonzalez notches hit, run in return |
|by Jack Moore | CBSSports.com|
(9/22/13) Dodgers first baseman Adrian Gonzalez notched a hit and a run in his return to action from an injured quadricep Sunday.
Gonzalez struck out twice in the return as well. The Dodgers have already clinched the National League West and as such Gonzalez could see regular rest in the club's final games.
|Adrian Gonzalez made it to 100 RBI for the fourth straight season and sixth time in seven years in 2013. However, Gonzalez's power drought lingered, which could be troubling heading into 2014. He managed only 22 home runs and failed to hit 40-plus doubles for the first time since 2010. He slugged .461, which is below his career .501 slugging percentage, and his ISO (a measure of a hitter's raw power) was below .170 for a second straight season (.168), which is well below his career .207 mark. Despite all that, Gonzalez was the 12th-highest scoring Fantasy first baseman in Head-to-Head formats and 13th-highest ranked first baseman in Rotisserie leagues. It looks like we can no longer count on Gonzalez to be a 30-homer threat. Even 25 homers and 40 doubles might be a stretch. But as long as Gonzalez continues to hit for average, drive in runs and has the potential for 20-25 homers and 30-plus doubles, then he's worthy of a starting spot in Fantasy lineups. Look to Gonzalez as an early round Fantasy pick in all formats.
