 SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) - Carlos Gonzalez insists moving from left to center field at spacious Coors Field won't be a problem.
Staying healthy may be the bigger issue for the Colorado Rockies slugger.
Dominant at the plate and in the field when he can play, Gonzalez is eager to show he can log 145 games again after wrist and finger injuries have slowed him in recent years.
His bad luck continued even after the season when he needed an emergency appendectomy. And when doctors were performing that surgery, they discovered a hernia that needed repair.
Gonzalez declared himself fit Friday and manager Walt Weiss says he plans to use him in center to start the spring.
