Ron Roenicke said : “Part of that consistency is the way he’s hitting the ball,” “He’s not just pulling the ball. And he gets in a pull-mode at times. So he’s been hitting the ball all over the field. He’s getting base hits away. The home runs to center. So I think when he’s using the whole field like that — and it’s also different pitches. It’s changeups. He’s hit some curveballs. He hit a good fastball today. So I think that allows him really to stay more consistent with his swing” External link

Ron Roenicke said : “I think it’s possible he could end up in a lot of different spots,” “Sometimes you think of your length guys as just being the guy that pitches when you need innings to fill. You’re down in the game quite a bit and you just need the innings. But because Darwinzon can put up a lot of zeros, I don’t want to limit him to those types of games. If we go four or five innings with a starter, and we’re tied or we have a lead, and he’s pitching really well, there’s nothing wrong with coming in and throwing two, three innings there. Hopefully still giving your offense a chance to get some more runs. And those are really meaningful innings. So he’s not limited to what he can do. And really depends on how he pitches and where we see the best fit for him” External link

They can steal bases. They’re fantastic base runners. The defense is really good. They throw the ball well and I know Mike Trout really worked hard on that to throw it well. Mookie has always thrown the ball well. But he just tries to perfect it by working so hard. They hit for average and they hit for power. And I don’t think there’s too many guys in the game that can do all those things. They both have a great eye at the plate. They both don’t chase out of the zone very much. Their on-base percentage is really high. And they’re two of the most exciting players I’ve ever seen. And so that’s why those for me are grouped together” External link

Baseball’s season had been set to start March 26 but spring training was halted on March 12.

I think we saw that in our intrasquad games. Been swinging the bat a lot better. Still, hard to tell because they aren’t real games that he’s playing in. We just get reports on how he does and hopefully that translates -- if we need to -- into good at-bats in the game” External link
