Rockies | Charlie Blackmon resting Wednesday

Wed, 13 May 2015 16:10:56 -0700

Colorado Rockies OF Charlie Blackmon is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, May 13. OF Drew Stubbs is starting in center field and hitting seventh in the batting order against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Hector Santiago.

Fantasy Tip: Stubbs ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) has just three hits in 32 at-bats this year. Even though Stubbs played very well against southpaws in 2014 (.328/.395/550) with seven home runs, his slow start this year should keep you from clicking him at FantasyScore.

Rockies | Charlie Blackmon riding a hot streak

Mon, 04 May 2015 14:07:47 -0700

Colorado Rockies OF Charlie Blackmon finished the recent five-game road trip with three home runs and a .435 batting average (10-for-23).

Fantasy Tip: Blackmon ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) hit all three home runs at PETCO Park in the last two games of the trip. Now back at Coors Field, expect Blackmon to continue his strong surge at the plate, and he is a nice mid-priced target for FantasyScore players, especially while he is hitting well and when facing a favorable pitching matchup.

Rockies | Charlie Blackmon back in lineup

Sat, 02 May 2015 15:56:03 -0700

Colorado Rockies OF Charlie Blackmon (illness) is back in the lineup Saturday, May 2, against the San Diego Padres. Blackmon also returns to the leadoff spot in the Rockies' order.

Fantasy Tip: Blackmon ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) had hits in nine of eleven games before being forced out of the lineup due to a stomach virus. A left-handed hitter, Blackmon will have the upper hand against Padres RHP Brandon Morrow, as he is hitting .314 off righties so far this season. FantasyScore owners can continue to use Blackmon in most matchups against righties.

Rockies | Drew Stubbs starting in CF

Fri, 10 Apr 2015 10:17:11 -0700

Colorado Rockies OF Drew Stubbs is in the starting lineup against Chicago Cubs SP Travis Wood Friday, April 10. Stubbs is starting in center field and batting sixth in the lineup in place of OF Charlie Blackmon.

Fantasy Tip: Stubbs ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) is not a bad buy-low outfield option at all at FantasyScore. Stubbs last year hit an impressive .328 with seven home runs against left-handed pitchers in 131 at-bats. He also has five hits in 12 career at-bats against Wood in his career. Consider him a sneaky good play today.

Rockies | Charlie Blackmon will bat leadoff

Sun, 05 Apr 2015 16:49:39 -0700

Colorado Rockies OF Charlie Blackmon will start in center field and bat leadoff when the Rockies open the 2015 season Monday, April 6, against the Milwaukee Brewers.

Fantasy Tip: Blackmon ($4,700, 9.4% of cap) will find himself in an excellent position, batting in front of OF Carlos Gonzalez and SS Troy Tulowitzki. As the cheapest option of three, Blackmon will be an excellent source of runs, steals and on base percentage. Blackmon also has the potential to join the elite 20/20 club, after he hit 19 home runs and stole 28 bases in 2014.

Rockies | Charlie Blackmon feeling good

Wed, 11 Mar 2015 21:57:22 -0700

Colorado Rockies OF Charlie Blackmon (abdomen) said Wednesday, March 11, that his abdominal strain only hurt when he swung a bat. He said most of the pain is now gone.

Fantasy Tip: Blackmon appears good to go for the regular season, barring any setbacks. The rare five-category producer is a solid fantasy outfielder, especially since his production is bolstered by playing half of his home games at hitter-friendly Coors Field.

Rockies | Charlie Blackmon set to return

Mon, 09 Mar 2015 15:45:04 -0700

Colorado Rockies OF Charlie Blackmon (abdomen) said he expected to make his Cactus League debut midweek. Blackmon also noted he wanted to work on having all facets of his game sharp during spring training, including working on his base running.

Fantasy Tip: A tour through Blackmon's split stats highlight his reliance on Coors Field (.331/.391/.524 home slash line vs. .241/.269/.348 road slash line) and a drastic second-half slide (.264/.314/.348 second-half slash line vs. .305/.349/.479 first-half slash line). Still, Blackmon is a rare five-category producer, but he is just likely to see his year-end numbers regress in 2015.

Rockies | Charlie Blackmon has abdominal pain

Wed, 04 Mar 2015 10:54:05 -0800

Colorado Rockies OF Charlie Blackmon (abdomen) is not in the spring lineup Wednesday, March 4, due to slight abdominal pain. However, he's scheduled to take batting practice.

Fantasy Tip: Blackmon had a solid year with the Rockies in 2014, but can he repeat his efforts in 2015? Be careful not to overvalue him in fantasy baseball drafts. Blackmon had drastic road splits away from the hitter's haven of Coors Field, and his second half numbers may be more indicative of what he has to offer this season.
