DJ LeMahieu has been diagnosed with a "slight" fracture in his left wrist.
He's also dealing with a sprained thumb. It's not the best news LeMahieu could have gotten, though at least he won't need surgery. LeMahieu will wait a week for the swelling to go down before he picks up a bat again. Daniel Castro and Pat Valaika are expected to fill in at second base while LeMahieu works back to full strength.

DJ Lemahieu is visiting a hand specialist on Wednesday.

Lemahieu was placed on the disabled list on Monday with a thumb sprain, and he's reportedly dealing with more pain than anticipated. He's not able to grip a baseball or a bat, which would make it difficult to play. We should have some clarity for how long LeMahieu will be out after the visit with the specialist, but right now this appears to be a long-term injury.

Rockies placed 2B DJ LeMahieu on the 10-day disabled list with a left thumb sprain.

LeMahieu apparently suffered the injury during a plate appearance Sunday. It's unclear at this point how long he might be sidelined, but if he needs surgery it's something that could knock him out for 6-8 weeks. Daniel Castro and Pat Valaika shared the second base job when LeMahieu missed time with a strained hamstring and that figures to be the duo the Rockies roll with again for now. Worth noting, though, is that Ryan McMahon has started three games at second at Triple-A Albuquerque since being optioned and it's possible he gets another shot.

DJ LeMahieu is out of the Rockies' starting lineup on Wednesday afternoon against the Angels.

LeMahieu hit an RBI single in his first game back from the disabled list Tuesday, but he'll sit out Wednesday's matinee game. Daniel Castro is starting at second base and batting eighth versus Angels righty Jaime Barria.
May 9 - 11:35 AM

Rockies activated 2B DJ LeMahieu from the 10-day disabled list.

LeMahieu is starting at second base and batting leadoff for Colorado on Tuesday night against the Angels after missing 10 days with a right hamstring strain. The 29-year-old has an impressive .290/.367/.505 batting line with five home runs, 12 RBI, three stolen bases, and 17 runs scored in 27 games this season.
May 8 - 5:20 PM

DJ LeMahieu (hamstring) thinks he'll be ready for activation from the disabled list when first eligible on Tuesday.

It's not clear whether the Rockies are on the same page as LeMahieu, but either way it sounds like the second baseman's recovery from a right hamstring strain is going well. The Rockies return home this week, so it would be especially sweet if fantasy owners can get him back Tuesday.
May 6 - 1:34 PM

Rockies placed 2B DJ LeMahieu on the 10-day disabled list with a right hamstring strain.

LeMahieu hasn't played since leaving Friday's game and he'll now get some extended rest. The Rockies haven't provided a timetable, but he could be eligible to rejoin the Rockies early next week. Pat Valaika should continue to fill in at second base.
Apr 30 - 3:50 PM

DJ LeMahieu (hamstring) remained out of the Rockies' lineup Sunday.

LeMahieu has missed two straight after tweaking his hamstring Friday. Pat Valaika will get another start at second base.
Apr 29 - 10:28 AM

DJ LeMahieu (hamstring) was held out of the Rockies' starting lineup for Saturday's game against the Marlins.

LeMahieu made an early exit from Friday's game due to a minor hamstring injury. At the moment, it doesn't sound as though he'll require a trip to the disabled list, so consider him day-to-day. Pat Valaika will start in his place and bat eighth against Wei-Yin Chen and the Marlins.
Apr 28 - 3:56 PM

DJ Lemahieu was removed from Friday's game against the Marlins with an apparent hamstring injury.

The Rockies are calling the injury tightness to his right hamstring. It sounds as though it'll be a day -to-day type of deal, but he'll be reevaluated on Saturday.
Apr 27 - 8:47 PM

DJ LeMahieu contributed two hits Wednesday in the Rockies’ loss to Pittsburgh.

He reached in three of his five plate appearances, adding two singles and a walk while bumping his season average from .297 to .308. The two-time All-Star is tied for fifth in the NL with five homers. Surprisingly, all five of his long balls have come away from hitter-friendly Coors Field.
Apr 18 - 4:57 PM

DJ LeMahieu had a monster night Thursday, racking up four extra-base hits -- two doubles and two homers -- and collecting four RBI in the Rockies' 5-1 win over the Nationals.

With usual leadoff hitter Charlie Blackmon ailing, LeMahieu did his best Blackmon impression from the top spot, bopping a leadoff homer and later capping the scoring with a two-run blast in the sixth inning. In between, he added an RBI double in the second inning. The professional hitter is batting a robust .351/.422/.649 with four homers, eight RBI and eight runs scored through the first two weeks of games.
Apr 12 - 11:57 PM

DJ LeMahieu stole the show with three hits Wednesday in the Rockies’ win over the Padres.

LeMahieu singled twice and also clubbed a double in the victory. He scored his lone run in the sixth inning on a sac fly by Ian Desmond. The All-Star second baseman is off to a strong start with two homers and a .308 average through 13 appearances. Wednesday was already his sixth multi-hit game of the year.
Apr 11 - 8:12 PM

D.J. LeMahieu drove in two runs in a 3-1 victory over the Padres on Thursday.

The RBIs were big ones, as he drove in two on a single off Brad Hand in the top of the ninth to give the Rockies a 3-1 lead. He's off to another outstanding start for the Colorado offense, and he'in an enviable position in the lineup with Charlie Blackmon hitting in front and Nolan Arenado behind. Another .300 season is a lock, but you just might see more runs and RBI from the 29-year-old second baseman in 2018. That would make him an excellent fantasy option.
Apr 5 - 9:52 PM

D.J. LeMahieu went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Thursday's loss to the Diamondbacks.

LeMahieu brushed up the scoreboard for the Rockies' first run of the game via a solo home run off Patrick Corbin in the first inning. It was a nice moment for the first contest of the year, but one should not expect such pyrotechnics to last for the rest of the campaign. The 29-year-old second baseman has just one double-digit homer season to his name for his career -- that came in 2016, when he socked a modest 11 long balls. LeMahieu's value comes in his pure average prowess. He has hit at least .300 in each of the last three seasons.
