DJ LeMahieu (groin) is in the Rockies' starting lineup on Thursday against the Reds.

Jul 6 - 1:21 PM

DJ LeMahieu (groin) missed his second consecutive game Wednesday against the Reds, but he vowed to be ready for Thursday's series finale.

Alexi Amarista started at second base with Pat Valaika providing the offensive heroics in a rare start at shortstop. However, the All-Star LeMahieu is close to 100 percent and vowed to be ready Thursday. "Doesn't feel as good as I wish it would at this point," he said. "At the same time, it's good enough to play, good enough to help our team win. I'll be in there (Thursday) and ready to go."
Jul 6 - 1:27 AM

DJ LeMahieu (groin) is not in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Reds.

LeMahieu sat on Tuesday, too. Manager Bud Black said that LeMahieu is "playable," which would indicate that he could be available to pinch hit in Wednesday's contest. Alexi Amarista will start at second in his place and is batting seventh.
Jul 5 - 6:09 PM

DJ LeMahieu is out of the Rockies' starting lineup on Tuesday night against the Reds.

Alexi Amarista will start at second base and bat seventh versus Cincinnati right-hander Homer Bailey. This looks to be a routine breather for LeMahieu, who went 3-for-4 with a run scored on Monday night.
Jul 4 - 4:30 PM

DJ LeMahieu went 3-for-4 and scored a run as the Rockies topped the Reds in Colorado on Monday.

All three of the second baseman's hits were singles. The reigning National League batting champion is now hitting .309/.365/.385 with three homers, 38 RBI and four stolen bases on the year.
Jul 3 - 11:41 PM

DJ LeMahieu finished Sunday's game against the Diamondbacks with a pair of singles across five at-bats.

The defending National League batting champion and 2014 Gold Glove winner was selected as a reserve for the All-Star Game in Miami. He is humming along with a .303/.361/.381 slash line and certainly deserves the accolades and recognition.
Jul 2 - 9:14 PM

DJ LeMahieu (groin) is back in the Rockies' lineup Sunday.

LeMahieu missed the last three games with a groin injury. He's at second base and batting second against Taijuan Walker and the Diamondbacks.
Jul 2 - 2:22 PM

D.J. LeMahieu (groin) is not in the Rockies' lineup Saturday against the Diamondbacks.

This will be his third straight absence after tweaking his groin Tuesday night at San Francisco. Alex Amarista will man second base and bat sixth Saturday against D'Backs ace Zack Greinke. LeMahieu remains day-to-day.
Jul 1 - 6:59 PM

DJ LeMahieu (groin) remained out of the Rockies' lineup Friday.

He hasn't played since exiting Tuesday's game with a right groin cramp. LeMahieu tested things out with some running pre-game Friday but apparently still wasn't feeling well enough. Pat Valaika is handing second base again.
Jun 30 - 5:54 PM

DJ LeMahieu (groin) is not in the Rockies' lineup Wednesday.

He's on the lineup sheet among the team's reserves, though, so it appears LeMahieu will avoid the disabled list for the time being. He exited Tuesday's game with a cramp in his right groin. Pat Valaika is handing second base Wednesday.
Jun 28 - 1:48 PM

DJ LeMahieu exited Tuesday's game against the Giants with a right groin cramp.

LeMahieu evidently must have felt something when he ran out a groundball in the top of the fourth, as he was removed in between innings. A cramp is certainly better than a strain, and the Rockies are calling him day-to-day. However, they might have more on the second baseman's status after the game.
Jun 27 - 11:56 PM

DJ LeMahieu finished with a single and a double across four at-bats in Saturday's road loss against the Dodgers.

LeMahieu was the only one able to get to Clayton Kershaw, collecting two of Colorado's five hits in the shutout loss. It was his 10th multi-hit game of June, and he is hitting .351 (34-for-97) with 18 RBI since flipping the calendar from May.
Jun 25 - 2:55 AM

DJ LeMahieu finished 4-for-4 with a double, walk, two runs scored and two RBI in Friday's 10-8 win against the Giants while also adding his fourth stolen base of the season.

LeMahieu, the 2016 National League batting champion, has eaten up San Francisco pitching to bump his average 20 points over the past two games. He has five multi-hit efforts over his past seven outings and he has two or more hits in seven of his 15 games in the month of June.
Jun 17 - 3:27 AM

DJ LeMahieu went 4-for-5 with two RBI and three runs scored in Thursday's win over the Giants.

LeMahieu picked up RBI singles off Matt Moore in the first and third innings. This was his second four-hit performance of the season. The 28-year-old second baseman does not offer much in the way of power -- a mere three home runs in 69 games played -- but has at least done a respectable job on the average front. Thursday's four-hit showing bumped it up to .288 in 274 at-bats.
