Rockies | Charlie Blackmon continues heating up

Mon, 23 May 2016 14:18:48 -0700

Colorado Rockies OF Charlie Blackmon went 2-for-4 with two RBI and two doubles Monday, May 23, against the Pittsburgh Pirates.

Fantasy Tip: Blackmon got out to a woeful start this year, but he's picked it up considerably since then to lift his batting average up over .300. He's been especially efficient as of late, hitting .364 over his last five ballgames. As long as he remains the leadoff man in Colorado's dangerous batting order, he's someone that should always be on starting rosters in fantasy.

Rockies | Jordan Lyles struggles in Pittsburgh

Mon, 23 May 2016 14:17:20 -0700

Colorado Rockies SP Jordan Lyles had a rough afternoon Monday, May 23, against the Pittsburgh Pirates, as he went just 2 1/3 innings, surrendering six runs (four earned) on five hits and three walks. He also struck out three.

Fantasy Tip: In his first start at the big league level in about a month, Lyles didn't provide much reason for the club to bring him back into the rotation on a permanent basis. In four of his five starts now, the former Houston Astro has yielded at least five runs, making him someone to avoid at this point in time whenever he picks up a spot start.

Rockies | Carlos Gonzalez in a funk

Mon, 23 May 2016 10:53:20 -0700

Colorado Rockies OF Carlos Gonzalez entered the game Monday, May 23, in a 2-for-32 slump in the last 10 games while batting .183 with a home run and one RBI in May. Manager Walt Weiss plans to keep Gonzalez in the middle of the order to let him work through his struggles. "I've had him fifth at times and he's bounced between third, fourth and fifth," Weiss said. "And last year when he was struggling, I hit him sixth at times. But it can turn around quickly with him, and he's still dangerous to the opposing pitcher and opposing team."

Fantasy Tip: Car-Go appears to be fully healthy, so this slump should pass. Avoid him in daily formats until he shows signs of life at the dish but continue using him in seasonal leagues.

MLB | Rockies-Pirates postponed

Sun, 22 May 2016 15:15:48 -0700

The game between the Colorado Rockies and Pittsburgh Pirates on Sunday, May 22, was postponed due to rain after one inning. The game has been rescheduled for Monday, May 23. Pittsburgh Pirates SP Juan Nicasio and Colorado Rockies SP Chad Bettis were the pitchers. There was no word on their status for Monday.

Fantasy Tip: Because the game already started any players are stuck in your lineup. As far as the stats, they do not count because the game did not go an official five innings.

Rockies | Trevor Story, Mark Reynolds out Sunday

Sun, 22 May 2016 09:47:06 -0700

Colorado Rockies SS Trevor Story and 1B Mark Reynolds are not in the starting lineup against Pittsburgh Pirates SP Juan Nicasio Sunday, May 22. INF Cristhian Adames will play shortstop and bat second, while INF Daniel Descalso will bat seventh and play first base. In addition, OF Carlos Gonzalez is back in the lineup, batting cleanup and playing right field.

Fantasy Tip: Adames is batting .300 (6-for-20) over the past month after beginning the season with just one hit in his first 18-bats, while Descalso is 3-for-6 with two RBI this year. Use them in daily fantasy lineups only if you're desperate for salary cap relief.

Rockies | Tyler Chatwood sets franchise record

Sat, 21 May 2016 18:45:20 -0700

Colorado Rockies SP Tyler Chatwood broke the franchise record by extending his scoreless innings streak on the road to 27 2/3 innings in a no-decision against the Pittsburgh Pirates Saturday, May 21.

Fantasy Tip: Chatwood has been a surprise fantasy contributor this year, and don't hesitate to start him in daily formats when he is pitching on the road.

Rockies | Carlos Gonzalez gets a rare rest

Sat, 21 May 2016 12:47:26 -0700

Colorado Rockies OF Carlos Gonzalez is not in the lineup on Saturday, May 21, against Pittsburgh Pirates SP Jon Niese. Gonzalez has played in 40 of the Rockies' first 41 games, starting in 39. 1B Mark Reynolds will bat fourth, OF Gerardo Parra will slide over from left to right field and hit sixth, while OF Ryan Raburn will replace Parra in left and bat fifth.

Fantasy Tip: It's been a rough stretch at the plate to say the least for CarGo, who is batting .186 with a solo homer - which also accounts for his only RBI - this month and hitless over his last four games to boot. Raburn is always a savvy DFS play against left-handers, while Reynolds is sporting a .328 average despite striking out at his usual heavy rate. Both Raburn and Reynolds are sensible low-cost daily options today given how inconsistent Niese has been this season.

Rockies | Jorge De La Rosa to start Tuesday

Sat, 21 May 2016 12:14:45 -0700

Colorado Rockies SP Jorge De La Rosa (groin) will be activated from the disabled list Tuesday, May 24, and he will start that evening's game against the Boston Red Sox. He will be followed in the rotation by SP Jon Gray Wednesday, May 25, and SP Eddie Butler Thursday, May 26.

Fantasy Tip: De La Rosa went 1-3 with a 10.18 ERA in five starts before landing on the disabled list and posted a 4.30 ERA in three rehab outings for Class AAA Albuquerque. Although he is striking out batters at a much higher rate than normal, that's the only good thing that can be said about his performance this year. He should be avoided outside of deep NL-only fantasy leagues.

Rockies | Carlos Gonzalez slumping

Fri, 20 May 2016 19:31:08 -0700

Colorado Rockies OF Carlos Gonzalez went 0-for-3 with a walk in a 2-1 loss to the Pittsburgh Pirates Friday, May 20, and he is hitless in last 15 at-bats and has just two hits in his 31 at-bats.

Fantasy Tip: Gonzalez will turn things around eventually. Keep running him out there in season-long leagues, but stay away in daily formats until his bat heat ups.

Rockies | Christian Bergman to the DL

Fri, 20 May 2016 19:25:10 -0700

Colorado Rockies SP Christian Bergman (oblique) was placed on the 15-day disabled list Friday, May 20, with a strained left oblique. In corresponding moves, RP Miguel Castro and SP Jordan Lyles were recalled, and RP Scott Oberg was optioned to Class AAA Albuquerque.

Fantasy Tip: Bergman has one start under his belt, but he is mainly a long reliever and a non-factor for fantasy purposes.

Rockies | Mark Reynolds pounding lefties

Fri, 20 May 2016 19:16:30 -0700

Colorado Rockies 1B Mark Reynolds is hitting .351 against left-handed pitching this season.

Fantasy Tip: Reynolds is still striking out a bunch, and his .328 average is bound to regress closer to his .232 career mark at some point. In the meantime, he is worth a look in NL-only formats, and he could be a sneaky DFS option against lefties.

Rockies | Colorado sticking with Trevor Story

Thu, 19 May 2016 16:10:18 -0700

Colorado Rockies SS Trevor Story has been told by manager Walt Weiss that there is no shortstop controversy and Story will remain the starter. "There had to be some reassurance,"' Weiss said, "that's only fair to Trevor."

Fantasy Tip: Story has been everything fantasy owners could have hoped for and more. He sits with 25 runs, 11 home runs, 28 RBI, three stolen bases and a .277/.337/.597 slash line. And while he has the cushy home ball park where he has a .970 OPS, Story also boasts a .906 OPS on the road and has seven road bombs this season. Those who took a late-round flier on Story can buckle up and enjoy the ride without looking over their shoulders now.

Rockies | DJ LeMahieu sitting vs. Cards

Thu, 19 May 2016 13:17:14 -0700

Colorado Rockies 2B DJ LeMahieu is not in the starting lineup Thursday, May 19. 2B Daniel Descalso is starting at the keystone and batting eighth against St. Louis Cardinals SP Michael Wacha Thursday.

Fantasy Tip: LeMahieu is off to a solid start with 23 runs, two home runs, 13 RBI, five stolen bases and a .301/.361/.436 slash line. There aren't many fantasy formats where he should be on the waiver wire, especially with him calling Coors Field home. Descalso doesn't move the fantasy needle outside of being a desperation flier in daily contests Thursday.

Rockies | Nick Hundley catches bullpen session

Thu, 19 May 2016 13:12:13 -0700

Colorado Rockies C Nick Hundley (oblique) caught a bullpen session Thursday, May 19, for the first time since suffering a left oblique injury Thursday, May 5.

Fantasy Tip: Continue to stash Hundley in deep mixed, two-catcher and NL-only leagues. Tony Wolters and Dustin Garneau have been splitting time behind the plate with Hundley out. Wolters has seen the lion's share of starts, and he is a low-end option in two-catcher and NL-only formats.

Rockies | Jose Reyes headed to Salt River Fields

Wed, 18 May 2016 14:25:09 -0700

Colorado Rockies SS Jose Reyes will begin working out at Salt River Fields in Scottsdale, Ariz. Thursday, May 19.

Fantasy Tip: Reyes is eligible to return from his suspension Wednesday, June 1, but he will likely require a rehab stint in the minors, which makes a mid-June return to the majors more realistic. However, playing time and with who he'll play for are huge question marks. Regardless of what unfolds over the next month, Reyes is worth stashing in all fantasy formats. Stay tuned for updates.
