Adrian Gonzalez on red-hot start: It has to do with work in the cage


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(4/17/2015) Dodgers first baseman Adrian Gonzalez credits his simple approach to his red-hot start at the plate this season, per the Los Angeles Times.

"It has to do a lot with work in the cage, work in BP," Gonzalez said. "I haven't really been trying to hit home runs in BP. I've just been trying to hit line drives up the middle. I think it's played out, especially when I've been facing lefties, where I've been hitting the ball up the middle, the other way, more than I did last year. Righties, they try to pound me in, I'm ready for the fastball, but my mentality's not pull. It's just be ready for the fastball. Stay with the mentality, keep it as simple as I can because things are going well."

Gonzalez started the season with five home runs in his first three games. He became the first player since Jackie Robinson back in 1952 to reach base two or more times in each game. He leads all of baseball with a .528 batting average (19 for 36) with six walks, six doubles, five home runs, nine RBI and 10 runs scored through his first 10 games played.

"You try to stay focused, try to keep that good streak going, the same mentality, don’t change a lot of what you’re doing right, try to ride the wave as long as you can, ride the hot streak," Gonzalez said. "We know this game is about ups and downs and there are going to be downs in the season, so the longer I can keep up a hot streak, the better the year will be at the end of the year and the better we'll be as a team."

Adrian Gonzalez confident in 'deeper lineup' for Dodgers


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/27/2015) Dodgers first baseman Adrian Gonzalez had an MLB-best 116 RBI in 2014, mostly batting in front of the likes of Matt Kemp and Hanley Ramirez. While both players are no longer part of the Dodgers' batting order, Gonzalez is not worried about lineup protection, per the Los Angeles Times.

"I think we're deeper, so I don't think we're going to be so dependent on the middle of the order," Gonzalez said Monday. "People say that we lost power, but I think we just put the power in different areas of the lineup."

Some of the key acquisitions this offseason for the Dodgers have been shortstop Jimmy Rollins, catcher Yasmani Grandal and second baseman Howie Kendrick. Gonzalez is confident in the new additions to the lineup.

"They're going to battle every at-bat," Gonzalez said. "They're going to be prepared. I'm not saying that we didn't before, but I think the guys that we got are guys that are going to be tougher to game plan for. From that end, it will be a deeper lineup."
