Hits & Misses: Spring Training Game 18

Rockies 9, Mariners 2 (Boxscore)


Jason Hammel

Is he passing Aaron Cook on the depth chart? Of course not... but he's making some people think about it at least. Six strikeouts today is a nice number to look at. The Mariners had a few borderline major leaguers in there, so that likely inflated the total a bit. He'll never be more ready for opening day than he is right now.

Carlos Gonzalez

Flat smoking the ball all over the yard this spring. I was especially pleased and encouraged by his ringing opposite RBI double today. Can we just make him a Rockie for life, too?
