Description: Colorado center fielder Charlie Blackmon posted a five-hit night and stole a base, but it wasn't enough to help the Rockies beat the Twins.
Insight: Blackmon started out hitting .352 with nine homers, 29 RBI, 34 runs, eight steals and a .998 OPS in his first 38 games, but he predictably tailed off.

7/1/2014 5:27:00 PM

5/31/2014 7:45:00 PM
Description: Rockies center fielder Charlie Blackmon bashed his tenth home run of the season Saturday against Cleveland.
Insight: Blackmon (.317, 10 HR, 37 RBI) drove in four of the six Colorado runs. He's on pace to eclipse the 100 RBI plateau for the first time in his career. Fantasy owners should be starting Blackmon on a nightly basis.

Insight: Blackmon batting to .323 after a two-hit game on Monday, but the Phillies are throwing a tough left-hander out there and the Rockies will give Blackmon the night off. Drew Stubbs will start in center and he's just 2-for-14 against Hamels, so not a great option.
 
5/24/2014 1:23:00 PM
Description: Rockies outfielder Charlie Blackmon is not in the starting lineup for Saturday's game against Atlanta.
