Charlie Blackmon (toe) struck out as a pinch-hitter to end Monday's game against the Brewers.

Rockies manager Walt Weiss said Saturday that he expected Charlie Blackmon (toe) to miss a couple more starts.

He's already missed two starts with a bruised right big toe and it sounds like Blackmon probably won't be back in there until at least the middle of the week. David Dahl has started the last two games in center field, with Gerardo Parra getting the call in left.

Charlie Blackmon, named the NL Player of the Week earlier in the day, hit his 21st homer Monday against the Nationals.

Charlie Blackmon slugged three solo homers in a loss to the Phillies on Friday in Philadelphia.

It was the first three homer game of his career. He took Jake Thompson deep to lead off the third inning before homering off Edubray Ramos in the seventh and then David Hernandez in the ninth. The 30-year-old is now sitting on 18 homers through 103 games, which leaves him one shy of his career-high from 2014. His .904 OPS is over 100 points higher than where he was from 2014-2014 (.786), so he’s just getting better. For the record, he’s producing both at home and on the road.

Charlie Blackmon went 4-for-5 with a home run, four RBI and two runs scored to lead the Rockies in a 12-6 thrashing of the Marlins on Saturday.

The solo home run leading off the first inning was his 13th of the season. He had an RBI triple in the sixth frame and added a two-RBI single later that same inning. He is batting .306 with 66 runs and 49 RBI despite spending a stint on the disabled list in April. He stole 43 bases last year but with only 14 currently he has no chance of repeating that feat this year.

FOX Sports' Jon Morosi hears the Rockies are not shopping Charlie Blackmon or Carlos Gonzalez.

Colorado is just five games out of a Wild Card spot after finishing July on a hot streak and could actually be buyers rather than sellers with the August 1 (4:00 p.m. ET) trade deadline approaching. Lefty reliever Boone Logan has also been pulled off the table.
Aug 1 - 11:20 AM

Nationals GM Mike Rizzo said Wednesday morning that he is not pursuing Rockies outfielder Charlie Blackmon.

MLB Network's Jon Morosi reported Tuesday that the Nationals had begun showing interest in Blackmon, but Rizzo flat out denied it Wednesday on 106.7’s The Sports Junkies, a sports radio talk show in the D.C. area. Blackmon would make sense for Washington, but he'd also make sense for just about any major league club. The 30-year-old center fielder is batting .307/.370/.484 in 80 games this season with the Rockies while making just $3.5 million. He's under contractual control through 2018.

Jon Morosi of MLB Network reports that the Nationals are showing interest in Rockies outfielder Charlie Blackmon.

The Nationals were linked to Blackmon over the winter and have seen Ben Revere and Michael Taylor disappoint in center field this season, so it makes sense that they are considering him again. Of course, his asking price figures to be significant. Blackmon is making $3.5 million this season and is under team control through 2018.
