Rockies | Plan is for Carlos Gonzalez to play CF

Tue, 18 Feb 2014 12:53:27 -0800

Colorado Rockies manager Walt Weiss said the plan is still for OF Carlos Gonzalez to play center field this season, but he could change his mind. Whatever decision that is made will be final. "We have options, and it's smart for the manager to know he can count on his players," Gonzalez said. "I'm ready to play center field or left field, wherever they need me. When they traded Dexter to Houston, that was their best option. But now we have more depth, plus Drew Stubbs, who is a pure center fielder. It's good."

Mon, 17 Feb 2014 21:00:13 -0800

Colorado Rockies manager Walt Weiss said Monday, Feb. 17, that OF Carlos Gonzalez could remain in left field after the team acquired OF Drew Stubbs, who is a center fielder by trade.

Wed, 12 Feb 2014 16:57:28 -0800

Updating a previous report, Colorado Rockies manager Walt Weiss said he's strongly leaning toward batting OF Michael Cuddyer second in the lineup this year. "It is very likely.

Cuddy is a proven run producer." OF Carlos Gonzalez is also a candidate to hit second, but he won't be a leadoff candidate.
