Scott Rolen Suffers Power Outage

Cardinals 3B Scott Rolen, coming back from shoulder surgery related to a baserunning collision last year, has hit the ball to all fields this spring but has had difficulty reaching the warning track, to say nothing of the wall. Rolen is batting .289 but has only one double, one triple and no homers. It's early, but so far he looks a long way from his form in 2004, when he batted .314 with 34 homers in 500 AB.
