Adrian Gonzalez Not Concerned About Lack of Home Runs, As He’s More Focused on Being Complete Hitter

While Red Sox first baseman Adrian Gonzalez is putting together a solid season overall, there are some that are concerned by the slugger's rather low home run total. Gonzalez isn't one of them.

Gonzalez has yet to go deep in the month of August and only hit two home runs during July. But he said he isn't focusing too much on his home run total. Instead, he's looking at his complete body of work, particularly his slugging percentage.

The Boston Globe's Peter Abraham said that Gonzalez made it clear that he's not trying to hit home runs all of the time because he knows that he would likely start making outs if he did. Instead, he just wants to be a complete hitter, which is a tactic that's helped him hit .350 this season entering Saturday's game.
