D.J. LeMahieu had three hits, an RBI, and two runs scored in five at-bats Monday as the Rockies trampled the Cardinals.

LeMahieu singled and scored on Troy Tulowitzki's three-run homer in the first inning, then doubled in a run and later scored in the fourth. The second baseman has been an unlikely contributor for the Rockies, batting .342/.394/.439 with three home runs, 27 RBI, 27 runs scored, and five stolen bases in 214 plate appearances.
Jun 8 - 11:27 PM

D.J. LeMahieu went 3-for-4 with a two-run home run as the Rockies completed a sweep of the Phillies on Sunday.

LeMahieu extended the Rockies' lead to 4-1 in the fifth inning, ripping a two-run home run to left field off of Jerome Williams. The 26-year-old is quietly having a very productive season, batting .335/.385/.441 with three home runs and 25 RBI. He also has five stolen bases -- albeit in nine attempts -- giving him some additional fantasy value.
May 31 - 4:39 PM

D.J. LeMahieu went 2-for-4 and hit his second homer Friday against the Giants.

LeMahieu is bating .326, but between his placement at the bottom of the Rockies order and his poor baserunning, he's scored just 13 runs. Fortunately, he's driven in 20, which has resulted in some surprising early-season fantasy value.
May 23 - 1:32 AM

D.J. LeMahieu is not in the Rockies' lineup Sunday.

It's just a day of rest. Rafael Ynoa is at second base Sunday in LeMahieu's place.
May 17 - 1:44 PM

D.J. LeMahieu hit an RBI single and an RBI double in Friday's win over the Giants.

LeMahieu picked up both of his RBI against Giants starter Chris Heston. He finished the game 3-for-4 with two doubles and a single. Despite the hot game, LeMahieu hits seventh in the Rockies lineup and his current .414/.452/.552 slash bears little resemblance to any of his career marks. Outside of NL-only leagues, he's not fantasy relevant.
Apr 25 - 3:23 AM

D.J. LeMahieu's first homer was a two-run shot off Zack Greinke on Saturday.

The typically light-hitting LeMahieu is batting .463 over his first 41 at-bats of 2015. It hasn't moved him up in the Rockies order, so he's still irrelevant outside of NL-only leagues.
Apr 19 - 1:21 AM

D.J. LeMahieu went 3-for-4 and drove home a run on Friday as the Rockies topped the Cubs 5-1 to improve to 4-0 on the young season.

LeMahieu got the scoring started in the first inning with an RBI single. He would later single and ride home on a Troy Tulowitzki two-run double in the fifth. While he doesn't offer much in the way of power or speed, he's an interesting middle infield option in deeper mixed leagues when skimming his home games.
Apr 10 - 8:05 PM

D.J. LeMahieu went 2-for-3 with a run scored and an RBI as the Rockies bested the White Sox 5-2 in Cactus League play on Friday.

The 26-year-old is off to a solid start in spring play, hitting .417 (5-for-12). He looks to be locked into the team's starting job at second base and should be able carve out value in NL-only and deeper mixed leagues while getting everyday at-bats in Colorado.
Mar 13 - 9:41 PM

D.J. LeMahieu went 2-for-2 in Wednesday's Cactus League loss to the Diamondbacks.

LeMahieu won a Gold Glove at second base last season so his job is pretty safe, but a good spring would ease some minds after he hit .267/.315/.348 last year. The 26-year-old was a good hitter in the minors, and he holds some NL-only value if he can keep the position locked down all year.
Mar 4 - 6:33 PM

D.J. LeMahieu has been named the 2014 National League Gold Glove winner at second base.

LeMahieu is a big second baseman, but he moves well and rated tops in the National League in UZR at the position, according to Fangraphs. He beat out Brandon Phillips and Chase Utley for the award.

D.J. LeMahieu (knee) is out of the Rockies' starting lineup against the Dodgers on Saturday.

LeMahieu left Friday's game with a left knee sprain and was still feeling sore on Saturday. He will have an MRI on Monday after the regular season has concluded. Charlie Culberson will start at second base for the Rockies in their final two games.
Sat, Sep 27, 2014 06:48:00 PM

D.J. LeMahieu is being considered day-to-day after leaving Friday night's game with a left knee sprain.

The 26-year-old has seen the bulk of playing time at second base for the Rockies this season, but hasn't provided much of anything from a fantasy perspective, especially considering he plays half of his games in Colorado. For the season, he is hitting .267/.315/.348 with five homers, 42 RBI and 10 stolen bases (10 caught stealing) in 149 games.
Sat, Sep 27, 2014 01:17:00 PM

D.J. LeMahieu went 0-for-4 on Thursday and is in a 1-for-30 slump.

LeMahieu has no power, doesn't walk and isn't much of a basestealer, so if he's not hitting singles, he's quite the liability offensively. Right now, his average is down to .269. He's hit .321 at Coors Field, compared to .214 on the road.
Thu, Aug 7, 2014 06:35:00 PM

D.J. LeMahieu went 3-for-4 with an RBI and a run scored in Sunday's loss to the Pirates.

LeMahieu is 11-for-23 with a double, two triples and four runs scored in his last six games. On Sunday he also drove in a run with a single. The 26-year-old is hitting .291/.343/.368 on the season.
