SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) - It's hard for Carlos Gonzalez to reflect too much on his forgettable 2012 season. The Colorado Rockies star has moved forward and is ready for a fresh start with a franchise counting on a new manager to turn things around fast.
So much has happened to Gonzalez since last fall. He got married and adopted his wife's young son. He traveled home to Venezuela to see family and friends.
He is eager this spring training to find a groove that will carry him through a consistent season and avoid another second-half fade.
Also gearing up to play for Venezuela in the World Baseball Classic, Gonzalez hopes to improve his defense this year.
