DJ LeMahieu went 4-for-5 with a home run and two RBI in the Rockies' defeat of the Reds on Sunday.

LeMahieu hit a go-ahead RBI single in the bottom of the third inning and a solo shot in the bottom of the fifth. The second baseman is batting .299/.371/.397 with two home runs and 16 RBI in 45 games this season.
May 21 - 4:38 PM

DJ LeMahieu finished 3-for-4 in Saturday's game against the Dodgers to raise his batting average to .283.

LeMahieu is 16-for-47 (.340) over the past 11 games to raise his average 28 points just since May 2. Last season's National League batting champ is starting to pile up hits again, posting six games with two or more hits over the past 11 outings after managing just 10 multi-hit games in the entire opening month.
May 14 - 2:59 AM

DJ LeMahieu went 2-for-5 with an RBI and two runs scored Tuesday in the first game of a doubleheader against the Cubs.

LeMahieu contributed an RBI double to the Rockies' six-run outburst off Jake Arrieta in the bottom of the third inning. He also singled and scored in Colorado's three-run fourth inning. The second baseman is batting .280/.362/.368 with 10 RBI and 15 runs scored in 33 games this season.
May 9 - 5:26 PM

DJ LeMahieu went 3-for-5 with an RBI and a run scored Saturday against the Diamondbacks.

LeMahieu had three of the Rockies' 14 hits on the evening. The second baseman is enjoying the month of May so far, going 8-for-22 (.364) this month. It's raised his average from .263 to .282.
May 7 - 12:11 AM

DJ LeMahieu was hitless in three at-bats with a walk in Tuesday's loss in San Diego.

LeMahieu, the 2016 National League batting champ, saw his average slip to just .255. He has collected just two hits over his past 20 at-bats (.100). He also had a tough time in the field as he was charged with his second error on a popup misplay. The good news is LeMahieu has struck out just three times during the skid. He'll break out in a big way and remains a solid fantasy play through thick and thin.
May 3 - 1:53 AM

DJ LeMahieu finished 3-for-5 with a double, two runs scored and three RBI in Tuesday's game against the Nationals.

LeMahieu has collected two or more hits in nine of his past 15 games, raising his average to .295. He isn't posting many RBI near the top of the Colorado lineup, but he is piling up the hits and getting on base. The reigning National League batting champ continues to be a viable fantasy option in all formats.
Apr 26 - 2:08 AM

DJ LeMahieu went 2-for-4 with a walk in Saturday's win over the Giants.

The multi-hit game was the third in a row for the second baseman after a slow start. His line is now up to .261/.346/.391 after his average was .087 a week ago. In case you were concerned about the reigning batting champion forgetting how to hit, worry no more.
Apr 15 - 9:48 PM

DJ LeMahieu homered, doubled and walked Monday against the Padres.

LeMahieu didn't start Sunday after a 2-for-23 first six games, but he did go 2-for-2 with a triple off the bench. He's hit for the cycle in his last six plate appearances, though that's not quite as impressive as what Wil Myers did tonight.
Apr 11 - 12:10 AM

DJ LeMahieu is not in the Rockies' lineup Sunday.

He's simply getting some rest. Alexi Amarista will fill in at second base.
Apr 9 - 1:13 PM

D.J. LeMahieu went 3-for-4 and drove in a pair of run against the Padres on Thursday.

The three-hit day brings his batting average up to .344 for the spring, which is very close to the .348 average that won him the National League batting title last season. He has an even .300 career batting average through six seasons of play.
Mar 30 - 6:54 PM

D.J. LeMahieu slugged a triple Wednesday in the Rockies’ Cactus League win over the Brewers.

He walked and grounded out in his other two plate appearances. So far LeMahieu has hit a preposterous .464 over 28 spring at-bats. Last year’s NL batting crown was no fluke. LeMahieu is 100 percent for real. And let’s not forget that he plays half his games at the hitter’s paradise known as Coors Field. Do what you have to do to get him on your fantasy squad.
Mar 15 - 8:01 PM

DJ LeMahieu slugged a two-run homer against the Royals on Monday.

The fifth-inning blast gave the Rockies an early 2-0 lead, but the Royals eventually pulled away against Colorado’s bullpen. LeMahieu amassed 11 homers last season after hitting 11 homers over the previous two seasons combined, so the jury’s out on his ability to reach double-digits again, but he’s in a great home park and there’s no questioning his elite plate discipline and contact ability.
Mar 13 - 7:45 PM

DJ LeMahieu went 3-for-3 with a run scored Tuesday in the Rockies' 3-2 Cactus League defeat of the Rangers.

LeMahieu hit a one-out single in the top of the first and rounded the bases moments later on a two-run shot by Trevor Story. The second baseman singled again in the third and fifth before getting replaced in the lineup by Rosell Herrera. LeMahieu, last year's NL batting champ, is 10-for-20 (.500) through seven games this spring.
Mar 7 - 6:34 PM

DJ LeMahieu is not in the Rockies' lineup Sunday.

The Rockies are trying to protect his National League batting crown, as he holds a narrow margin over the injured Daniel Murphy (glute). LeMahieu has started just one of the last five games and was removed from that one after a couple at-bats. Pat Valaika is at second base.
