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. Feb 18 - 11:52 AM

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.
Jan 3 - 8:44 PM

D.J. LeMahieu is currently riding a 12-game hitting streak.

He went 1-for-3 on Tuesday to extend his streak. LeMahieu is batting .388 during that stretch. He'll continue to be an underrated NL-only player due to his average (.286) and speed (17 steals in 98 games).

D.J. LeMahieu finished 3-for-4 with a double, home run, walk, steal, two RBI and three runs scored against the Padres on Monday.

It was LeMahieu's first home run since June 22, his first double since August 1, the first game he's logged multiple RBI since July 3 and the first time he has scored three runs all season. LeMahieu's no-power offensive skill set doesn't make him a valuable option in mixed leagues, but NL-only appreciate his .275 batting average and 14 steals over 265 at-bats.

D.J. LaMahieu had a rough night at the dish in Saturday's loss to the Dodgers, going 0-for-4 with a strikeout.

LeMahieu drew another start at second base, but isn't running away with the job in the manner that the Rockies had hoped he would. The 25-year-old is hitting .271/.321/.356 with a homer and 11 stolen bases in 52 games on the season. He remains merely a fringe middle infield option in mixed leagues.

D.J. LeMahieu went hitless in a fourth straight game Tuesday against the Padres.

The 0-for-17 has dropped his average from .295 to .262. It's bad timing for him with Troy Tulowitzki set to return, but it's not as though Josh Rutledge is taking advantage. LeMahieu will probably keep the second base job for a while longer. However, since doesn't do much more than his singles and the occasional double, he needs to keep his average up to be a useful player. In 163 at-bats for the Rockies, he has just one homer, 12 runs scored, 11 RBI and 11 walks.

D.J. LeMahieu finished 3-for-4 with a double and a walk against the Dodgers on Thursday.

With Troy Tulowitzki on the way back in one or two weeks, LeMahieu could use a little hot streak to ensure that he stays ahead of Josh Rutledge on the depth chart at second base. Rutledge, who has played mostly shortstop with Tulowitzki out, went 2-for-4 with a double and two runs scored tonight.

D.J. LeMahieu went 3-for-5 with a home run and two RBI in Saturday's win over the Nationals.

LeMahieu had a solo homer -- his first of the season -- in the first inning and later added an RBI single in the fourth. While the 24-year-old scuffled a bit after taking over the everyday second base job, he now has three straight multi-hit games and has pulled his batting average all the way up to .299 for the year. With his speed, he's worth considering in deeper mixed fantasy leagues.
Sat, Jun 22, 2013 03:04:00 PM

D.J. LeMahieu is expected to take over as the Rockies' starting second baseman following the demotion of Josh Rutledge.

Rutledge's recent slump and LeMahieu's .412/.444/.529 batting line early on, along with his solid defense, has convinced the Rockies to make a change. LeMahieu is a .294 career hitter over 125 games, but he offers next to nothing in the power and speed departments, making him worthy of picking up only in NL-only formats.
Wed, May 22, 2013 09:38:00 PM

Rockies recalled INF D.J. LeMahieu from Triple-A Colorado Springs.

LeMahieu has batted .364/.405/.510 this season at the Triple-A level. He'll back up all over the infield for the Rockies.
Thu, May 16, 2013 06:15:00 PM

Rockies optioned INF D.J. LeMahieu to Triple-A Colorado Springs.

This leaves Jonathan Herrera and Reid Brignac as the finalists for a utility infielder job. LeMahieu hit .231 (9-for-39) with two doubles, one triple and four RBI in 19 games this spring.
Wed, Mar 27, 2013 03:49:00 PM

D.J. LeMahieu went 2-for-4 with an RBI in Wednesday's 2-1, season-ending win over the Diamondbacks.

LeMahieu finishes his first season in Colorado with a .297/.332/.410 slash line across 247 plate appearances. Solid, though he contributed only two home runs.
Wed, Oct 3, 2012 11:52:00 PM

D.J. LeMahieu went 4-for-4 with a couple RBI in Monday's win over the Brewers.

LeMahieu picked up his first major league home run over the weekend, and now he has his first four-hit game. The 24-year-old is hitting .302/.333/.395 over 86 at-bats this season and should continue to see regular time at second base, making him a worthy NL-only addition.

D.J. LaMahieu went 2-for-4 and hit his first MLB home run in Saturday’s loss to the Giants.

LaMahieu scored two of the Rockies' three runs in the losing effort. His big moment came in the eighth inning, when he sent a Matt Cain pitch over the wall in left field for a solo shot. The 24-year-old is now hitting .266 with six RBI in 78 at-bats this season. He could begin to earn more starts at second base.

Rockies recalled INF D.J. LeMahieu from Triple-A Colorado Springs.

LeMahiue batted just .205/.262/.231 during a stint with the big club earlier this season. He'll provide infield depth while Chris Nelson is out.
