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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
Sun, Jul 27, 2014 09:31:00 PM

D.J. LeMahieu singled in the go-ahead run in the ninth Friday in the Rockies' 7-4 win over the Giants.

LeMahieu's single came after pinch-hitter Ryan Wheeler delivered a two-run single to tie the game. It was LeMahieu's lone hit in four at-bats. In fact, he's hitting just .189 in 37 at-bats this month. The Rockies are mostly playing him for his defense at second base.
Sat, Jun 14, 2014 02:02:00 AM

D.J. LeMahieu went 1-for-5 with a solo home run in Wednesday's loss to the Phillies.

LeMahieu bashed a solo home run off of Jake Diekman in the eighth inning, breaking a 2-2 tie. Power isn't his forte, so it's no surprise that it was his first dinger of the season. LeMahieu is slashing .269/.326/.331 on the season.
Wed, May 28, 2014 11:17:00 PM

D.J. LeMahieu went 3-for-3 with a triple and two runs scored from the ninth spot in the Colorado lineup on Wednesday.

LeMahieu is hitting .294, which practically makes him a drag on the Rockies offense. He's never going to hit for much in the way of power, but that everyone else on the Rockies is playing so well has pulled up his fantasy value a bit by giving him additional chances to score and drive in runs.
Wed, May 7, 2014 11:29:00 PM

Rockies manager Walt Weiss considers D.J. LeMahieu a candidate to hit leadoff.

"His on-base percentage may not be prototypical of a leadoff guy," said Weiss. "But I think that's going to develop because he has such great instincts for the game. That's going to be part of his game you will see him improve on." LeMahieu, 25, hit .280/.311/.361 with two home runs, 28 RBI and 18 stolen bases in 109 games last season. Drew Stubbs and Corey Dickerson are the other options to hit leadoff, possibly as part of a platoon.

Troy Renck of the Denver Post believes that D.J. LeMahieu, not Josh Rutledge, will open the 2014 season as the Rockies starting second baseman.

Renck also believes that LeMahieu could hit second in the Rockies lineup, which would certainly boost his counting stats. The 25-year-old had a solid season at the dish in 2013, slashing .280/.311/.361 with a pair of homers, 28 RBI and 18 stolen bases in 109 games. He's worthy of consideration as a middle infielder in NL-only and deeper mixed leagues.
