Rockies | Skipper not concerned about Carlos Gonzalez
Wed, 03 Jul 2013 20:16:25 -0700

Colorado Rockies manager Walt Weiss said Wednesday, July 3, that he isn't concerned despite the increased strikeout totals for OF Carlos Gonzalez. He has posted 95 strikeouts in just 82 games, fourth-most in the National League. However, he leads the league with 22 homers and a .596 slugging percentage heading into play Wednesday. "I think that's the tradeoff with most guys that have that much power," Weiss said. "That's usually more length with their swings, which is why they hit the ball further when they catch it. At the same time, you might miss some pitches too because of the length."
