Kyle Kendrick not afraid of the challenges of pitching at Coors Field


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/5/2015) Rockies starting pitcher Kyle Kendrick is going from one hitter's park to another, moving from Philadelphia's Citizens Bank Park to Colorado's Coors Field. His career numbers at both parks aren't great, as he has a 4.39 ERA and 1.36 WHIP at Citizens and a 5.26 ERA and 1.46 WHIP at Coors.

Regardless of his past struggles in hitter's park, Kendrick is not worried about what lies ahead at one of the top offensive parks in the majors.

"I'm not going to strike out 20 guys a game, although I'll get my share," Kendrick said, per MLB.com. "I'm going to pitch to contact, get early outs and pitch deep in the game. In that ballpark [Coors Field], with that offense, if you give up three or four runs in seven innings, a lot of times you're going win the game. I wasn't afraid of signing."

Rockies manager Walt Weiss also outlined his expectations for the veteran right-handed hurler.

"We are looking for guys that compete well and are out to win games, period, not get caught up in their ERA or some other statistics," Weiss said. "Kyle fits that bill."
