DJ LeMahieu homered and scored three runs on Tuesday as the Rockies dispatched of the Tigers.

LeMahieu got the scoring started in the contest with a solo shot off of Michael Fulmer in the first inning. He also drew a pair of walks in the game, finishing the night 1-for-2 officially. He's in the midst of another strong offensive campaign, slashing .314/.380/.408 with seven homers and 56 RBI.

DJ LeMahieu went 3-for-5 with a pair of home runs as the Rockies held off the Braves 7-6 on Saturday.

LeMahieu hit a solo homer in the fifth inning and teed off again in the ninth, bumping his home run total from four to six in the span of a few innings. The 29-year-old has been one of the league's best hitters since the All-Star break, as he's now hitting .333 with those two homers since the Midsummer Classic. His numbers won't touch his 2016 breakout, but few do. When all is said and done, this year's stats will still reflect another strong offensive year for the 29-year-old.

DJ LeMahieu went 3-for-4 with an RBI and a walk in Saturday's loss to the Brewers.

LeMahieu tied the game up at 3-3 with his RBI single in the seventh inning. Alas for the home faithful, the Brewers would score thrice in the ninth to break that newly forged tie. For his part, LeMahieu is now slashing .314/.374/.394 with four homers and 52 RBI in 116 games played. While he offers little in the power department, he is on track to finish with his third straight season with a .300 batting average so long as he does not hit any sort of prolonged slump over the next month-plus.

DJ LeMahieu went 4-for-4 with a double and four runs scored against the Braves on Wednesday.

LeMahieu isn't hitting homers or stealing bases, but his average sits at .314 and he's up to 74 runs scored, including 41 in his last 45 games. It should be enough to make him a top-10 fantasy second baseman anyway.

DJ LeMahieu (triceps) singled in one of his four plate appearances in his return to action Tuesday.

LeMahieu missed Sunday's game with a bruised triceps, but he's expected to be fine. The Rockies' second baseman ranks seventh in the National League with his .318 average.

DJ LeMahieu was scratched from the Rockies' lineup Sunday with a bruised triceps.

He can probably safely be considered day-to-day. Alexi Amarista will take LeMahieu's spot at second base.

D.J. LeMahieu finished 3-for-3 with a double and two walks Thursday against the Mets.

The 2016 NL batting champ spent most of the first half of this season under .300, but he's all the way up to .323 now, courtesy of a .410 average in his last 35 games. It's not coming with homers or steals, so he still doesn't rate as an elite fantasy second baseman, but he's in the next tier down.

DJ LeMahieu went 4-for-6 with a stolen base and three runs scored in the Rockies' blowout victory over the Mets on Sunday.

Colorado's offense racked up 13 runs on 18 hits in the afternoon rout of Steven Matz and the Mets at Citi Field. LeMahieu contributed two doubles and two singles to the effort, improving his season slash line to .315/.371/.401.

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

LeMahieu missed a couple of games with a minor groin injury. He's batting second for the Rockies on Thursday afternoon, with Raimel Tapia leading off and Charlie Blackmon hitting third in place of Nolan Arenado.

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."

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.
Wed, Jul 5, 2017 06:09:00 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.
Tue, Jul 4, 2017 04:30:00 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.
Mon, Jul 3, 2017 11:41:00 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.
