D.J. LeMahieu went 3-for-4 on Thursday, raising his average to .325.
That's three three-hit games in four days for the NL All-Star. Still, LeMahieu's value is down since the start of the week, since he's now batting lower in the Rockies order following the Jose Reyes acquisition. With Reyes taking over the second spot, LeMahieu hit sixth tonight. Jul 31 - 12:19 AM

D.J. LeMahieu went 3-for-4 with a double, triple and two runs scored in the Rockies' 7-2 win over the Cubs on Tuesday.

LeMahieu got the scoring started with an RBI double in the first inning, coming around to score later in the inning. He fell a homer shy of a cycle, but that's not terribly surprising given that he's hit just 13 homers in 469 career games. Still, the 27-year-old is on fire in July, riding an 18-game hitting streak en route to a .324/.381/.423 overall line. His 56 runs scored are eighth-most in the National League.
Jul 28 - 11:44 PM

D.J. LeMahieu went 2-for-3 with an RBI double, a walk, and a run scored in Friday's win over the Braves.

LeMahieu really faded last month, but he has begun to pick things up again recently. The 26-year-old is hitting an even .500 (12-for-24) over his last six games. Not surprisingly, he's been a much different hitter at home this season.
Jul 11 - 12:42 AM

D.J. LeMahieu broke out of a slump with a 3-for-4 game Saturday against the Diamondbacks.

LeMahieu hadn't had a multihit game since June 11, even though he's been batting second and usually getting five plate appearances per game. His average, which stood at .351 on June 11, entered tonight at .293, but it's back up to .300 now. He's not a bad option in mixed leagues for as long as he bats second, but he'll probably end up back at the bottom of the order at some point.
Jul 5 - 1:36 AM

D.J. LeMahieu is not in the Rockies starting lineup on Thursday.

It's the second straight week that Walt Weiss has opted to rest his second baseman on Thursday. Daniel Descalso will get the start in his place and bat seventh against Jeremy Hellickson and the Diamondbacks.
Jul 2 - 7:03 PM

D.J. LeMahieu is getting a day off on Thursday.

Troy Tulowitzki and Carlos Gonzalez are also absent from the Rockies' starting lineup for Thursday afternoon's series finale against the Diamondbacks. Rafael Ynoa will start at second base and bat second for Colorado.
Jun 25 - 1:03 PM

D.J. LeMahieu had three hits, an RBI, and two runs scored in five at-bats Monday as the Rockies trampled the Cardinals.

LeMahieu singled and scored on Troy Tulowitzki's three-run homer in the first inning, then doubled in a run and later scored in the fourth. The second baseman has been an unlikely contributor for the Rockies, batting .342/.394/.439 with three home runs, 27 RBI, 27 runs scored, and five stolen bases in 214 plate appearances.
Jun 8 - 11:27 PM

D.J. LeMahieu went 3-for-4 with a two-run home run as the Rockies completed a sweep of the Phillies on Sunday.

LeMahieu extended the Rockies' lead to 4-1 in the fifth inning, ripping a two-run home run to left field off of Jerome Williams. The 26-year-old is quietly having a very productive season, batting .335/.385/.441 with three home runs and 25 RBI. He also has five stolen bases -- albeit in nine attempts -- giving him some additional fantasy value.
May 31 - 4:39 PM

D.J. LeMahieu went 2-for-4 and hit his second homer Friday against the Giants.

LeMahieu is bating .326, but between his placement at the bottom of the Rockies order and his poor baserunning, he's scored just 13 runs. Fortunately, he's driven in 20, which has resulted in some surprising early-season fantasy value.
May 23 - 1:32 AM

D.J. LeMahieu is not in the Rockies' lineup Sunday.

It's just a day of rest. Rafael Ynoa is at second base Sunday in LeMahieu's place.
May 17 - 1:44 PM

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.
Apr 10 - 8:05 PM

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.
