Hits & Misses: Spring Training Game 23

Padres 9, Rockies 6 (Boxscore)


Carlos Gonzalez

First longball of the spring for CarGo over the hitting background in center. That's a mammoth poke. The Rockies still have him leading off, which I have mixed feelings about, but there's no doubt he's going to hit 25 HRs and steal 25 bases, making him an all-star candidate. My guess is he settles into the #3 spot next season.

Rafael Betancourt

Just really good to see Betancourt get out there and work an inning in a game situation. Hopefully everything feels good when he wakes up in the morning and he's on track for April 5.
