Podsednik Getting Better

TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) -- Scott Podsednik zipped around first, picked up speed approaching second, then backed off as he easily glided into third for a standup triple in a recent game against San Francisco.

It felt good to stretch the legs again.

The Colorado Rockies outfielder finally feels like he has his wheels back under him, after numerous injuries slowed him down the past two years while he was with the Chicago White Sox.

Podsednik signed a minor league contract with Colorado in February.

Podsednik's game hinges on his speed, which is why the past two years have been frustrating for him. Since helping the White Sox to a world championship in 2005, he's been hampered by two different sports hernias and a strained left rib cage muscle.

Still, Podsednik is regarded as one of the fastest players in the game. He now has a team-leading six stolen bases on seven attempts this spring.
