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.

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.

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.

DJ LeMahieu is not in the Rockies' lineup Saturday against the Brewers.

It's his second absence in the last three days, though LeMahieu isn't known to be dealing with any injuries. Perhaps manager Walt Weiss is looking to preserve his National League batting title. With two games to go, LeMahieu leads Washington's Daniel Murphy by a thin .348 to .347 margin. Daniel Descalso will cover second base in his absence.

D.J. LeMahieu is not in the Rockies starting lineup for Thursday's contest against the Giants.

It doesn't appear to be anything more than a routine day of rest for the hot-hitting second baseman. Daniel Descalso will start in his place and bat second against Johnny Cueto and the Giants on Thursday evening.
Thu, Sep 29, 2016 07:02:00 PM

DJ LeMahieu went 1-for-4 with three strikeouts in Tuesday's loss to the Giants.

LeMahieu simply couldn't square up Matt Moore, though the same could be said for just about everybody on the Rockies. For the season, the 28-year-old second baseman is slashing .349/.418/.496 with 11 homers, 66 RBI and 11 steals over 550 at-bats. This has been a career-year for LeMahieu in a number of statistical categories, including home runs, RBI and batting average.

DJ LeMahieu is not in the Rockies' lineup Saturday against the Dodgers.

He's just getting a routine day off. LeMahieu has had a career year for the Rockies and is on the cusp of winning his first batting title. Rookie Pat Valaika will draw the start at second base Saturday while batting seventh against Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw.
Sat, Sep 24, 2016 07:11:00 PM

D.J. LeMahieu went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Thursday's loss to the Dodgers.

LeMahieu connected for a solo shot off Brett Anderson with one out in the fifth inning. The tater was his 11th of the season. In addition, the 28-year-old second baseman is hitting .352/.422/.503 and has driven in 66 runs over 537 at-bats. He has put forth two-hit showings in three of his last four games.
Fri, Sep 23, 2016 01:14:00 AM

DJ LeMahieu finished 3-for-5 with a bases-clearing double, a stolen base, and a run scored on Friday against the Padres.

LeMahieu had two doubles and a single on the night. He has hit safely in seven straight games and has six hits over his last two games, which has pulled him dead even with the Nationals’ Daniel Murphy for first in the NL with a .349 batting average. This one could go down to the wire.
Sat, Sep 17, 2016 01:12:00 AM

DJ LeMahieu went 3-for-4 with a double and scored a run against the Diamondbacks on Saturday.

He is batting an impressive .345/.419/.501 with 10 homers, 92 runs scored, 53 RBI and 10 steals. He leads the National League in batting average. Those are big numbers for a second baseman.
Sat, Sep 3, 2016 11:34:00 PM

DJ LeMahieu went 2-for-5 with a double and three RBI versus the Dodgers on Monday.

The Rockies have played a lot of home games this month, and LeMahieu is taking advantage, having hit .444 with 10 extra-base hits, 16 RBI, 17 walks and 22 runs scored in 23 games. He should have a shot at player of the month honors, but Kris Bryant is the clear favorite.
Tue, Aug 30, 2016 12:41:00 AM

D.J. LeMahieu has returned to the Rockies starting lineup on Saturday.

LeMahieu has been sidelined since Monday due to inflammation in his left wrist. The 28-year-old is having an outstanding season at the plate, slashing .344/.416/.501 with 10 homers, 50 RBI and nine stolen bases.
Sat, Aug 27, 2016 10:35:00 AM

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

He hasn't played since Monday because of inflammation in his left wrist. The good news is LeMahieu is available off the bench and should be back in the lineup Saturday. Daniel Descalso is at second base in his place. The Rockies also have Ryan Raburn over David Dahl in left field with the Nationals starting southpaw Gio Gonzalez.
Fri, Aug 26, 2016 03:30:00 PM

DJ LeMahieu (wrist) is out of the Rockies' starting lineup Wednesday versus the Brewers.

LeMahieu was a late scratch Tuesday due to left wrist inflammation and is apparently still dealing with some discomfort. Daniel Descalso will start at second base and bat sixth on Wednesday afternoon against Zach Davies.
