D.J. LeMahieu (knee) said Tuesday that he's feeling much better and expects to return to the starting lineup on Wednesday.

LeMahieu was forced to leave Sunday's game with a left knee contusion and sat out on Monday as a precautionary measure. It's likely that Daniel Descalso will fill in again on Tuesday against JA Happ and the Blue Jays.

DJ LeMahieu went 2-for-4 with a three-run home run and two runs scored as the Rockies pounded the Diamondbacks 11-6 on Saturday.

LeMahieu had one of the team's three home runs on the day, his fifth homer of the year. The second baseman has been terrific in his last six games, going 13-for-28 with four RBI and five runs scored. The good stretch is a microcosm of what has been a stellar first half for the 27-year-old, who's batting .328/.392/.500 with 46 runs scored overall.

D.J. LeMahieu went 2-for-3 and belted his fourth home run of the season, leading the Rockies in an 11-5 rout of the Pirates on Thursday.

LeMahieu opened the scoring with an RBI double as part of a four-run onslaught in the first inning. He tacked on a two-run homer in the fourth to increase the Rockies' lead to 8-5. LeMahieu also drew a pair of walks and scored three times in the contest. With the two-hit attack, he is now hitting an impressive .308/.377/.465 with four homers, 21 RBI and six swipes on the season.
Jun 9 - 9:12 PM

DJ LeMahieu is not in the Rockies starting lineup for Saturday afternoon's tilt against the Giants.

Getting a day off against Madison Bumgarner isn't the worst possible thing in the world for LeMahieu and his fantasy owners alike. Christian Adames will start in his place and bat seventh for the Rockies on Saturday.
May 28 - 1:12 PM

DJ LeMahieu is out of the Rockies' lineup Thursday against the Cardinals.

LeMahieu actually has good numbers against tonight's starter Michael Wacha (4-for-10) but he'll get a breather anyway. Daniel Descalso will take over at second base and bat seventh. This will be LeMahieu's third absence of 2016.
May 19 - 4:13 PM

DJ LeMahieu is out of the Rockies' lineup Wednesday.

LeMahieu has leveled off somewhat after his scorching start to the 2016 season and will take a day of mental and physical rest on Wednesday with the Rockies wrapping up a series in San Diego. Cristhian Adames is starting at second base and batting ninth in the matinee game versus Padres right-hander Cesar Vargas.
May 4 - 1:29 PM

DJ LeMahieu (groin) is back in the Rockies' starting lineup Tuesday night against the Reds.

And he'll bat leadoff versus Reds right-hander Robert Stephenson. LeMahieu sat out Saturday and again on Monday after tweaking his left groin on Friday night. It's obviously not a serious issue. The second baseman is slashing .341/.400/.585 with two home runs and five RBI in 11 games this season.
Apr 19 - 3:50 PM

According to MLB.com's Thomas Harding, DJ LeMahieu tweaked his left groin on Friday.

That is the primary reason for his absences Saturday and again on Monday. Harding says the Rockies want to make sure the groin issue doesn't become chronic. Cristhian Adames will get another start at second base.

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

Cristhian Adames will start at second base and bat seventh versus Reds right-hander Dan Straily. LeMahieu got off to a sensational start this season, but he's 0-for-9 with five strikeouts in his last two games.
Apr 18 - 3:27 PM

D.J. LeMahieu is not in the Rockies starting lineup on Saturday.

The 27-year-old is off to an impressive start offensively, slashing .378/.439/.649 with two homers, five RBI and two stolen bases in his first 10 games. He'll take a rest on Saturday, allowing Cristhian Adames to start at second base and hit atop the Rockies lineup against Jake Arrieta and the Cubs.
Apr 16 - 11:52 AM

D.J. LeMahieu went 2-for-5 with a double versus the Padres, hitting leadoff for the second time in a week.

LeMahieu normally bats eighth, but has now handled the leadoff role for the second time this week on days when Charlie Blackmon rests. He went 2-for-5 with his second double of the young season, raising his batting average to .526. The 27-year-old is doing his best to prove his 2015 breakout wasn't a fluke. He has been a source of stolen bases and a high batting average, but more regular at-bats up in the lineup should also result in more runs scored.
