by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(5/19/2015) Rockies right fielder Carlos Gonzalez credits his pitch recognition and his positioning on the box to "getting the feel back" recently at the plate, per MLB.com.

"Hitting for me is putting myself in position to hit with my leg kick," Gonzalez said. "My body has to be in the right spot when the ball is coming. If my body doesn't work, my hands aren't going to work. When I put myself in position to hit, I can see the pitch better.

"I can see the ball coming out of the pitcher's hand. I can recognize if it's a ball or a strike. When you see me chasing a lot, it's because my body is not working."

Gonzalez has underwhelmed this year, with a .207 batting average with four home runs and 11 RBI. Entering Tuesday, Gonzalez has two homers and five RBI over his last six games played. He is 7 for 25 over that span.

Rockies outfielder Carlos Gonzalez still working out of funk


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4/26/2015) Rockies outfielder Carlos Gonzalez has yet to put things together at the plate so far this season. Gonzalez is hitting just .197 with two home runs in 66 at-bats and it's wearing on him a bit, according to the Denver Post.

"I'm not in a good place. I'm still hitting (.197)," he said. "But I'm happy that I'm healthy, and that I'm playing, and that we are winning. I think we are having a good month so far as a team."

Manager Walt Weiss thinks he's really close to seeing Gonzalez get all the pieces together and go on a run.

"I saw real good signs from CarGo, hitting the ball hard the opposite way," Weiss said. "It wasn't just the couple of hits he got. It was the way he got them. Those are things that he had been working on. Then, to get results like that, is always encouraging."

Just good swings -- when you feel consistent with your swing a lot of extra bases and home runs are going to come. I can feel when I'm in the zone and hitting the ball hard. My swing is good. It's just timing. I've been out front often, but the more I play the more I'm going to see the ball better."

Rockies' CarGo: I felt like I was flying around the bases


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/19/2015) 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.”
