Gonzalez wants Heyward to be more patient

LOS ANGELES – During a Jason Heyward 10-game slump last April, then Braves manager Bobby Cox benched him for one game and said he wanted the young slugger to be more aggressive and stop taking so many close pitches.

Now, with Heyward in the midst of a 12-game slump,  new manager Fredi Gonzalez wants him to be more patient.

Heyward was 7-for-42 (.167) in his past 12 games before Wednesday, with two homers, two RBIs, five walks, six strikeouts and a .255 on-base percentage and .381 slugging percentage.

“Here’s a guy with a lot of patience, who gets walks and everything, and it seems like he’s been making outs and swinging at balls early in counts,” Gonzalez said. “I just told him to be patient. But that’s usually what happens when guys are going bad, they’re swinging at pitches out of the strike zone and making quick outs.”

For the season, Heyward was 2-for-16 with runners on base, with five walks and four strikeouts. After getting behind 0-1  in counts, he was 4-for-24 with two walks and a .231 OBP. With two strikes, he was 3-for-25.

He was 0-for-9 with no walks and a slew of groundouts to the right side in the first two games of the four-game series at Los Angeles, making him 1-for-20 with no walks in his pas five games against the Dodgers and 3-for-27 (.081) with 12 strikeouts and no extra-base hits in nine career games against them.

It was mentioned to Gonzalez on Wednesday that Cox had urged Heyward to be more aggressive late last April, when he was getting rung up on some called third strikes and not swinging at some hittable pitches.

“There’s a fine line,” Gonzalez said. “[Freddie] Freeman earlier in the season, he was like, in four at-bats he saw 3-1/2 pitches. It was unbelievable. Usually when you’re not going good, you’re swinging at pitches out of the strike zone, and I think [Heyward] is doing that a little bit right now.”

Hinske’s two-hit pinch inning

Eric Hinske hit a two-run pinch-hit homer in the Braves’ eight-run ninth inning Tuesday, then added an RBI single later in the inning. It was the second time in his career that Hinske had two hits in an inning after entering as a pinch-hitter, and the first time a Braves hitter did it since Julio Franco in 2004 against the Mets.

In such cases, scoring rules state that a hitter is not considered a pinch-hitter in his second time up. Therefore, Hinske was credited with only one pinch hit and one pinch-hit plate appearance.

Brooks Conrad had snapped the Braves’ 0-for-25 start by pinch-hitters with a single in the seventh inning Tuesday. Hinske’s homer accounted for the team’s first pinch-hit RBIs.

Last season, Braves pinch-hitters led the NL with 42 pinch-hit RBIs, tied for first with 10 pinch-hit homers, and ranked third with a .250 average.

I just knew it, the Braves couldn’t put back to back solid games together. Have they even won back to back games this year?

The only thing consistent about this team is that the starting pitching usually gives up first inning runs, and they make average at best pitchers look like they are about to go into the HOF.

Jon Garland pitches a complete game giving up 4 hits and 1 run? What a f’n joke. Actually, the Braves are a f’n joke. I tell you one thing, I will never believe the hype about this team again. From now on, they have to prove everything. I don’t give a crap if they get all the best players at every position, I will believe they suck until the prove otherwise. Thanks for nothing you hacks.

Can’t believe that I wasted a vacation day, money on tickets, money on parking, money on gas, and money on food at the game to watch these losers. I feel robbed. At the end of the day these players and coaches make their millions regardless the outcome of a game, all the while we fans that continue to pay their salaries by spending money on all the things I just stated get jipped.

@ Ralph….very true. The difference is in that one inning, The Braves drew a lot of walks. That’s also a glaring difference between last year’s team and this year’s so far. The team as a whole needs to be more patient…no just Heyward.

‘Course now, Heyward’s head is prolly so scrambled (Do I be aggresive, do I be patient???) he’s gonna need a couple days off. My money says he’s not in the lineup today.

Heyward-he is lazy, can’t play his position, terrible bat. Walks around as if he is entitled to be worshiped. He needs to have his ego checked at the gate and learn to play the game. I am so tired of every reporter stroking this kids ego. His swing is a joke, he can’t hit and inside fastball without rolling over it to the right side, he chops at the ball instead of swinging at the ball, and he can’t hit a curve ball. So all you baseball know it alls tell me what you see in this kid with a .193 batting average.

It is not that Heyward swings at bad pitches, it is that he only swings at pitches he can PULL. Freddie Freeman had the same problem at first but now seems to be hitting to all fields. The result, as they say, is history.

Heyward jams himself by trying to surround the outside pitch, leaving him to hit a lot of ground balls, soft flies and popups. Now and then (as with the two homers) he can accidentally run into one, but he mostly is an easy out these days.

If this keeps up, Freeman will be hitting second and Heyward will be eighth again.
Or, God forbid, we have Jordan Shaeffer all over again. I don’t think Freddi Gonzalez is fatally patient and loyal like Bobby Cox.

Steven Lemon

@klmbbfan , I may not see a lot in Heyward, but what I see in YOU is an obvious bitterness indicative of someone who is jealous that someone close to himself has not had the fame and fortune of someone like Jayson Heyward.

Prado
Uggula

Heyward
Freeman
McLouth
Gonzo
Can’t hurt,. They have tried everybody except thew trainer in the order!!!

Wow. So much love from these so called braves fans. I mean its only been 19 games. They’re only 3 games under .500 and its still 141 games to go. Calm Down. Heyward is still a good hitter. He was in the top 5 in slugging and on base percentage. Prado is a great hitter. He led the league in hits last year. Chipper Jones is playing great so far. He’s healthy. The starting pitching isn’t doing so bad. The Bullpen is playing great. I think it’s more positives than negatives. The most negative thing about the Braves so far this year is the fans. You act like no team has struggled early to go on to the playoffs. Calm Down. If are under .500 by the 100th game THEN you can panic. Other than that. Just Calm Down

Actually, Heyward hasn’t hit squat since the end of his fast start last year. Was it really a sore thumb that caused the problem or is he a BUST. On tv he appears to get plenty of hittable pitches, he just does not hit them hard.

Jeff Blauser

Jerry, I agree with you. Sore thumb? Doubt that was the problem. Heyward probably will be a .250 hitter throughout his time in mlb. Nothing to write home about and certainly not a savior.

Heyward is just playing on skills alone. He couldve learned more in the minors. Even though he had a good year last year, the pitchers exploit his many weaknesses now. If hes not able to learn quick in the majors and adjust, he belongs in AAA. Thats whats going to make Freeman a far superior hitter. He tore up AAA and has nothing left to prove. Hes going to be legit.

Heyward might just be a flash in the pan if he cant adjust

Good thing we got a new hitting coach…….this team is average at best, maybe 3rd or 4th best in their conference (Philly, Fla, Washington). Only the lowly Mets are worse! Time to unload Mclouth, Alex G, and Freddie and prepare for next year. Oh yeah, send Wren and Fredi Gonzalez packing, too. Never thought I’d say this but can we put Terry Pendleton back at hitting coach?, he’s actually better than this guy we have now…..

Man this time is hard to watch. I have no confidence in the offense to get the job done. The minute I saw we were down 5-0, the game was over. Considering I didn’t want to stay up until 12:00 AM watching the game because I knew our offense couldn’t score 5 runs in 6 innings to save their lives, tells everyone how much this offense sucks.

I do remain hopeful that because this is only April we have plenty of time to go on a streak. This has happened MANY times before. With a lineup that looks this good on paper, McClouth having multiple hit games and Freeman lighting it up (As much as a rookie does I suppose)…I think we will be okay. The Phillies were 1-3 in their last four going into last night. Who would have thought they could lose 3 out of 4? Not me. Let’s give it a month and then gripe.

Freddie Gonzalez want Heyward to be more patient???

For the last 30 at-bats, Jason has basically taken 2 called strikes and then stuck out or rolled out weakly lub=nging at a ball a foot outside. Heyward will never get out of his slump until he can cover the inner half of the plate and lay off balls outside the strike zone oin the right hand batter’s box.

Maybe, Freddie needs to watch some TV replay of Heyward’s recent at-bats.

Who would think that the Maw-lins and their 2nd string manager would be ahead of the guy they fired?
Maybe the Fishes knew somethin we dont? I mean hell they chose Hanley over Uggs.
I WANT to watch and root for Braves but it is awfully hard. They are swinging at everything. At least the Bravos should WORK THE COUNT. Then maybe the other team would have to take out the starter at some point.
This team is in a terrible funk. We are incapable of base hits. Usually its one/two guys but everybody seems to have issues..
When Nate Mcout is one of your’hottest hitters’ you are in trouble.
Bright spot is we were pretty sad last April and then came along MARTIN PRADO.

OK we are all frustrated with the Braves poor results so far, but some of the comments posted here are just plain ignorant. Be a fan or don’t be…I still believe this team will be a contender this year…IF, Heyward gets out of his slump and we can get some production from CF and Uggla…the pitching will be fine…but we have to start hitting. I do agree with some of the posts about Heyward being overrated…I believe he was “annointed” as the savior WAY TOO early in his debut season and he is feeling the pressure…Uggla should heat up in MAY/JUNE (along with Chipper) but Heyward seems completely lost right now.

@ Steve Lemon; Jealousy is the last thing, I have towards this young man, if that was the case I would be jeolous of Uggla at .200 average and our beloved Mclouth down in the 8 hole now. I want to see this kid succeed more than anyone. He does not even go to the plate with a game plan or an approach anymore. He has a lot of talent but his current swing for a left handed hitter does not stay in the strike zone long enough to connect onto anything solid, yes every once in a while he may connect but that will become less and less as these pros on the mound get to know the holes in his swing.

Heyward has way too much talent, and will come around. One of the worst things for a hitter is to get too much advice leading too “over-thinking” each at bat. Heyward needs a couple of 3-hit games and he will be on his way. BTW many of the same comments were being directed at Nate and Freddie, which leads me to believe that some of the negative bloggers just like to attack a player when he is down.

I agree with John Tucker, Heyward tries to pull outside pitches and grounds out weekly to the right
side. He won’t become a good hitter till he learns to take that pitch the other way. Appears like he is
trying to hit a home run with every swing. Needs some coaching.

Considering that Jason Heyward went into MANY slumps last year, I am not truly worried about his performance. Last season he generally made the necessary adjustments and improved. Yes, the pitchers are beginning to see his weaknesses and that generally happens to young hitters and pitchers. Anybody heard of the Sophomore Jinx? For those that say that he SHOULDN’T be more patient, did you guys see last night when he struck out swinging three times on outside pitches? Heyward, Mr. 393 on base percentage last season, has been WAY too aggressive. He’s swinging at many bad pitches which is something that we hardly ever saw last season.

As far as the complaints about the offense, Yes, we should be scoring more runs, but the problem is the STARTING pitchers. In Hanson’s first start, he gave up 4 runs in the first 3 innings, 2nd start, 3 runs in the first 2 innings, and his last start, he gave up 2 runs in the first inning. Hudson in his last 2 starts: he gave up 5 runs in first 3 innings, and 4 runs in first 3 innings of the last game. beachy gave up 4 runs in his start against phillies(couldve been more the way he pitched) and 5 runs against florida in the first 3 innings. Derek Lowe gave up five runs last night in 2 innings. And mike minor gave up 5 runs in 4 innings.

That is 9 out of 19 games where the braves have begun the game in a large deficit because of their starting pitchers. What does this do to the hitters? It makes them press. It makes them try to force runs. What does this do for the opposing teams’ pitchers? it relaxes them. It makes them pitch better. Anybody who has ever played the game of baseball knows that coming back from a 4-5 run deficit is not an easy task, especially when you are going against pitchers like Gallardo, Johnson, Hamels, and even GARLAND. If you looked at the first inning yesterday, the braves put some hard hits on Garland. Once lowe gave up the 5 runs though, the hitters started pressing and garland got a chance to relax. Take away those 5 runs and i guarantee the team would have hit him better.

Now I do have confidence in our starting pitching and i do believe that some of those first inning runs were “fluky” like tim hudson said, but we can’t put all the blame on the hitters. And by the way, Nate McLouth is batting .270 now. Uggla is flirting with the mendoza line. Freeman is hot. Chipper is still taking good swings. McCann is still good. The bats are starting to come to life( with exception to heyward). Now all this team needs is a little consistency. We need the starters to work with the hitters and play as a team. And by the way, before Victorino’s homer for the phillies, they had gone nearly 17 innings without a run. Teams have struggles. It’s baseball. I still put the Braves over the Phillies. We still got 143 games to go!!!

The only real talent the Braves could count on was their pitching. It seems like it’s going South this year. Last year, the Braves could count on late inning miracles and a stellar home record. Looks like that’s gone as well.

You guys do realize that the other team pays their players too right? The other team is chalked full of guys good enough to play Major League Baseball right? That the BRaves, who routinely have one of the top 3 to 5 farm systems in the league every year due to their player development and scouting are very high on Jason Heyward. You do realize that there is 140 games left. 140. Hitters slump, pitchers slump, fielding usually remains pretty consistent.

Have a beer and relax. It’s a long season.

I think they all need to be more patient. That’s what built the offense last year. Maybe Freddie Freeman is going good because he started being more aggressive but that doesn’t mean this approach will work with everyone. The key to this offense is getting on base! This team is not built like the Florida Marlins of the past where they stole their way to runs and being aggressive.

Yes, all you Braves fans. Keep supporting this team we’ve put on the field for you, as you have lo, these many years. Keep filling our coffers with your money and we will keep supplying you with sports entertainment to fill the unending hours of your hopeless and drone-like existence. Yes, repeat after me- a REAL FAN supports his team, no matter what. Yes, isn’t the Kool-Aid tasty? Yes, they suck, but they are OUR TEAM. That’s right…

Go Braves!
