Rockies keeping Carlos Gonzalez in left field, holding tryout for center

Carlos Gonzalez will not make the move to center field this season. Speaking to reporters on Saturday, Rockies manager Walt Weiss said that the team would hold a tryout for the position while Gonzalez would remain in left.

The Rockies will allow Drew Stubbs, Brandon Barnes and Corey Dickerson to compete for the starting job in center this spring.


Gonzalez appeared in 110 games last season. The Rockies are hoping he can be on the field more this coming season. He finished 2013 with a .302/.367/.591 line with 26 home runs and 70 RBI.
