It may not seem right, but Charlie Blackmon will be in right field Antworten

SCOTTSDALE , Ariz. (AP) — for Colorado this season.Blackmon, a four-time All-Star who has anchored center field for the Rockies since 2014 and has played more games there than anyone else in franchise history, said Monday he spoke to manager Bud Black about the switch and is fine with it.“He assured me this was going to help the Rockies win more games, and I’m all about that,” Blackmon said.With Ian Desmond slated to play center field, the issue became which corner spot Blackmon would fill.“If I had my choice, I would pick right,” Blackmon said.The new alignment puts David Dahl in left.Blackmon has played all three outfield spots while hitting .302 in his eight-year career with the Rockies, but he has been almost strictly a center fielder since 2015 Joe Morgan Jersey , when he made four starts in each of the corner spots. He started 64 games in right field in 2014.He has played 691 games in center.“I really enjoy playing center field,” Blackmon said. “I think you can impact the game in center field more than in either corner. There is a sense of pride in being able to play center field, especially at Coors Field. I’m not going to let that get in the way, especially if we think it is going to help us win more games.“Ian Desmond is more than capable. Super-fast. Incredible athlete. I’m sure he’ll pick up the slack just fine.”Dahl, who turns 25 on April 1, made 34 starts in left field and 30 in right last season.“It’s pretty tough in left,” Dahl said. “The ball comes off the bat a little different, especially at Coors, where the ball carries. You have to takes good angles.”There’s more ground to cover in left than in right at asymmetrical Coors Field. The distance down the lines is about the same, but the left-center field alley is 390 feet from home plate and the right-center field alley is 375.“In our park Dave Concepcion Jersey , I like right for Charlie,” Black said. “I think he is probably more comfortable in right. David might have a little more range in left. I think left field needs range in our park.”Carlos Gonzalez, currently a free agent, was the Rockies’ primary right fielder in 2018, making 117 starts there.“‘Cargo’ would give me this look when a ball gets hit in the gap that (meant), ‘You are going to get this, right?'” Blackmon said with a smile. “Hopefully I can give that look to Ian a little bit less.” The Gold Glove SS will look to build on his career year at the plate"WhiteFanposts Fanshots Sections Diamondbacks Farm TeamsGameday ThreadsDiamondbacks NewsDiamondbacks Game ReportsFang FoodCrowd Sourcing Diamondbacks Over/Under Projections: #6Nick AhmedNew,13commentsThe Gold Glove SS will look to build on his career year at the plateESTShareTweetShareShareCrowd Sourcing Diamondbacks Over/Under Projections: #6Nick AhmedPatrick Gorski-USA TODAY SportsIf familiar with this series go ahead and skip to poll. If not, please read on.This series of articles will run from now until shortly before opening day. The purpose is to crowd source the D-Backs fans of this website to get a sense of how they feel about the prospects of each individual player on the 40 man roster. For this exercise I will only be using rate (average) stats and poll the readers on their sense of direction for that player’s level of basic performance, regardless of playing time expectations.I’m not including defense and base running , so no WAR here, as that is playing time dependent. You will be given two poll options:The player will either exceed the projection or under perform the projection by 5% for hitters OPS or 10% for pitchers ERA/FIP.There is no middle option to vote on. (Otherwise the majority of votes would end up agreeing with the projection).What I am looking for is if you are forced to indicate your sense of direction for the player, is it well over or under the projection?Other Points of note:Projections are the average of Steamer and ZIPS projections.(Click through for original tables)The projections draw on 3 or 4 year samples, weighting most recent seasons the heaviest, but I’m just showing 2018 and career statsin mini table below for simplicityThe player’s name is high lighted with a link to the player’s Baseball-Reference page.Click on that to see more player history and detailAge is the 2019 player age.Polls will run until mid March, so if you miss a player,you can go to the story stream box on the front page andfind a player you might have missed .Please let us know in the comments section your thoughts behind your vote. Thanks !CONTEXTNICK AHMEDAge 29Nick Ahmed’s projection is for .693 OPS.Is he more likely to come in over or under ?
