Rockies | Charlie Blackmon begins rehab

Mon, 25 Apr 2016 23:35:33 -0700

Colorado Rockies OF Charlie Blackmon (toe) will play seven innings Tuesday, April 26, and a full game Wednesday, April 27, at Class A Modesto. If he progresses well, he could return from the disabled list Friday, April 29.

Fantasy Tip: Blackmon's return would send Ryan Raburn back to the bench. Raburn has a .333-3-6 line thus far and would be worth consideration in DFS when he's in there.

Rockies | Charlie Blackmon close to a rehab stint

Sun, 24 Apr 2016 06:50:56 -0700

Colorado Rockies OF Charlie Blackmon (toe) could begin a rehab assignment as soon as this week, according to manager Walt Weiss.

Fantasy Tip: Blackmon has a history with turf toe and it could limit his upside on the base paths. He may also have to rest more than usual, so don't be surprised if he doesn't approach the 40-steals mark this year. Still, he should be returned to your starting lineups immediately upon his return to the Rockies.

Rockies | Charlie Blackmon ramps up activity

Wed, 20 Apr 2016 11:30:28 -0700

Colorado Rockies OF Charlie Blackmon (toe) played catch, took dry swings and did light movements without his walking boot Tuesday, April 19.

Fantasy Tip: There's a chance that Blackmon will be ready to come off the DL in two weeks when he's eligible. But keep in mind that he's had a history with turf toe, and it could curb his ability to steal bags upon his return. Regardless, you'll want to return Blackmon to starting lineups everywhere when he's activated.

Rockies | Charlie Blackmon says he'll be ready

Fri, 15 Apr 2016 15:25:16 -0700

Colorado Rockies OF Charlie Blackmon (toe) is wearing a walking boot on his left foot but says he'll be ready to come off the 15-day disabled list when his time is up.

Fantasy Tip: Blackmon has dealt with turf toe before, and he might not be ready to run like he normally would upon his return. That shouldn't stop you from returning to lineups in all fantasy formats when he's ready, though. Ben Paulsen's fantasy value receives a short-term boost while seeing starts in first base and the outfield with Blackmon out.

Rockies | Charlie Blackmon put on DL

Thu, 14 Apr 2016 11:42:37 -0700

Colorado Rockies OF Charlie Blackmon (toe) was placed on the 15-day disabled list with turf toe on his left foot Thursday, April 14, and C Dustin Garneau was called up from Class AAA Albuquerque in a corresponding move.

Fantasy Tip: Gerardo Parra is playing center field Thursday, so he figures to play center field mostly with Blackmon sidelined. Some combination of Ryan Raburn and Brandon Barnes could take over in left field. Also, Ben Paulsen could see more at-bats there, as he's starting in left Thursday. Raburn and Paulsen are intriguing in deep mixed and NL leagues because of their power and success against right-handed pitchers.

Rockies | Toe injury for Charlie Blackmon

Thu, 14 Apr 2016 10:02:04 -0700

Colorado Rockies OF Charlie Blackmon (toe), who has a history of turf toe, hurt his toe diving back into second base Wednesday, April 13, and he's not in the lineup Thursday, April 14.

Fantasy Tip: Turf toe can be pretty debilitating, so this is a situation that you'll definitely need to watch moving forward if you own Blackmon. Ryan Raburn may be the biggest beneficiary if Blackmon is forced to miss time.

Rockies | Charlie Blackmon, Nick Hundley out

Thu, 14 Apr 2016 09:35:16 -0700

Colorado Rockies OF Charlie Blackmon and C Nick Hundley are not in the starting lineup Thursday, April 14. 1B Ben Paulsen draws a start in left field and is hitting seventh with OF Gerardo Parra moving to center field. Also, 2B DJ LeMahieu is moved to the leadoff spot. C Tony Wolters is behind the plate and batting eighth against San Francisco Giants SP Matt Cain.

Fantasy Tip: Most everyone from the Rockies lineup today is desirable in daily formats facing Cain at Coors Field. LeMahieu gains significant value in the leadoff spot, and Paulsen and Wolters are worth looks as cheap sleeper picks against the declining right-hander.

Rockies | Two Rockies take a seat

Sat, 09 Apr 2016 15:18:47 -0700

Colorado Rockies OF Charlie Blackmon and OF Gerardo Parra are out of the lineup Saturday, April 9, with OF Ryan Raburn hitting sixth and OF Brandon Barnes hits eighth. 2B DJ LeMahieu bumps up to the leadoff spot against left-handed San Diego Padres SP Drew Pomeranz.

Fantasy Tip: Raburn and Barnes aren't worth the start. LeMahieu hit lefties at a .294 clip the last three years, and he's worth the upper-echelon start.

Rockies | Charlie Blackmon, Gerardo Parra sitting

Wed, 06 Apr 2016 10:10:36 -0700

Colorado Rockies OFs Charlie Blackmon and Gerardo Parra are out of the lineup against Arizona Diamondbacks left-handed SP Patrick Corbin Wednesday, April 6. OF Brandon Barnes is in center and hitting eighth, while OF Ryan Raburn is in left and batting sixth. Also, 2B DJ LeMahieu moves up to the leadoff spot Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Expect Raburn, who slashed .325/.415/.589 with all eight of his homers against lefties in 2015, to start often against southpaws. Because of his dominance of that handedness, he's an effective bargain option in daily games. LeMahieu is off to a fine start and gains added value in daily games today, as well.

Rockies | Gerardo Parra set for starting job

Thu, 28 Jan 2016 14:23:12 -0800

Colorado Rockies OF Gerardo Parra will be left with a starting spot to win in the outfield after the Rockies traded OF Corey Dickerson to the Tampa Bay Rays Thursday, Jan. 28. Parra can play left with OF Charlie Blackmon in center field and OF Carlos Gonzalez in right. OF Brandon Barnes will be the fourth outfielder and fill in everywhere.

Fantasy Tip: Parra had career highs in batting average (.291), home runs (14) and runs (83) last year with the Milwaukee Brewers and Baltimore Orioles. Coors Field was the best possible landing spot for him, and now he's in a starting role. He could improve on his solid 2015 season with the Rockies, and he should be a target in the later rounds of all mixed leagues.
