Carlos Gonzalez has had an up and down career. Every season seems to have its hot and cold streaks, especially at this current point of his career. Although, at the age of 24, CarGo’s most consistent season was in 2010. Most of his career highs came from seven seasons ago.
Gonzalez won his first Sliver Slugger and Gold Glove in 2010. Despite losing to the Philadelphia Phillies in the NLDS in 2009, CarGo had a very good series. Maybe that is what sparked the career year for him. In 2010, Gonzelez led the National League in hits and batting average, as well as being seventh in the league in home runs and fifth in runs batted in.
His campaign in 2010 was good enough for third in the NL MVP voting, only behind Joey Votto and Albert Pujols. Unfortunately, unlike other guys on this list, we will only see CarGo as a really good Rockie, not a great one. His 2010 season belongs with the rest but inconsistent stretches and injuries held him back from being great. Although, he can still hold a very big part in how far the 2017 team can go.
