Last year, Trejo made his major league debut with the Rockies, appearing in 28 games while batting .217/.260/.326 with one home run and three RBIs to his credit.
He slugged .278/.324/.569 with 17 home runs and 72 RBI in 90 games at Triple-A Albuquerque. It is a result of increased strength and experience that a batter “learns what he can and can’t handle” in the course of a season.
As Trejo put it, “I think I’ve become better at that over the years.” My ability to consistently hit the ball out of the park, especially last year, was finally realized, and I didn’t have to put in any extra effort to do so.
Trejo has gained muscle and “finally focused on my nutrition” since last year, when he weighed 190 pounds.
Also, his last season’s Rockies experience gave him more confidence in the process, even as he saw the season’s opening week fly by. As a result, relying on the procedure isn’t a foolproof strategy when the wait is long.
“It’s challenging to manage that time and not feel concerned about trying to do too much,” Trejo added.
It’s a mistake I made a lot last year when I’d come in there and swing big and swing at balls out of my zone, trying to do too much and hoping to be in the lineup tomorrow when what I needed was what I did today.
As a bench player, especially one who last played on April 5, getting two at-bats in a Cactus League exhibition and then waiting and waiting until Friday night, all of which is harder to do.
