Carlos Gonzalez is swinging a good stick for the Colorado Rockies

Carlos Gonzalez got off to a extremely hot start to open up the 2010 season, getting 11 hits in the first six games.  A hamstring injury cooled off his hot start though, as he missed the next three games in New York against the Mets.  He came back as a pinch hitter the next game against the Braves, before returning to his regular starting role in left field the very next day.  In his first start back he went 2/5 with 2 doubles and 2 RBIs.  He followed that game up with a homerun the next day, before having his first true “0-fer” against the Washington Nationals on Monday, where he went 0-4 with 2 strikeouts.  He got the day off yesterday, but there are no reports that it is injury related so Gonzalez should be fine.  He still seems to be seeing the ball well and the 24-year-old has  a .333 BA, 1 HR, 6 RBIs, 8 Rs, and a .476 SLG so far this season.  He  is proving that his 2009 campaign was no fluke, where in 83 games last year he finished with a .284 BA, 13 HRs, 29 RBIs, 53 Rs, 16 SBs, .353 OBP, and a .525 SLG.  If Gonzelez can stay healthy he is going to be a great weapon in the Rockies’ lineup all season long, and is going to put together a very nice stat-line for his first full season.
