Jon Morosi and Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports report the Rockies have discussed Charlie Blackmon in trade talks with multiple teams.
Blackmon was a first-time All-Star in 2014, hitting .288/.335/.440 with 19 homers and 28 stolen bases, but he's already 28 years old and the club feels they may be able to sell him at his peak value. The team is said to be looking for starting pitching in return, and the duo name the Cubs, Rangers, Braves and Orioles as possible suitors. If the Rockies were to deal Blackmon, they would likely turn to Drew Stubbs while also signing a complementary outfielder on the free agent market. Jan 17 - 5:14 PM

Charlie Blackmon went 2-for-5 with an RBI triple and a stolen base in a win over the Padres on Sunday.

Charlie Blackmon delivered a walk-off single on Monday against the Giants.

Blackmon had been 0-for-5 coming into his at-bat in the bottom of the ninth inning. He singled off of Sergio Romo to score Michael McKenry and send the fans (if there are any left) home happy with a 10-9 win. Blackmon struggled in August (.245/.291/.363), but his season numbers are strong (.289/.335/.441) and hopefully this hit can get him fired up for the last month of the year before the Rockies end their lost season.

Charlie Blackmon hit his second home run in as many days Sunday, going 2-for-4 in a loss to the Diamondbacks.

Blackmon hit a solo home run in the fourth inning, the only damage the Rockies could do against Diamondbacks starter Chase Anderson. He's now got 17 homers in the year, with 64 RBI and 69 runs scored. The All-Star is hitting .289/.335/.441 overall.

Charlie Blackmon went 2-for-4 with a double and two runs scored in Sunday's win over the Marlins.

Blackmon has been doing a good job setting the table over the last week, scoring eight runs in his last six games. He went 7-for-13 in the weekend series against the Marlins, bringing his line up to .291/.340/.438. He's not the All-Star he was in the first half, but Blackmon should remain a productive player through the end of the season.

Charlie Blackmon (ankle) went 1-for-5 with a double in his return to action Monday against the Nationals.

Blackmon rolled his right ankle on Saturday, but X-rays came back negative. He sat out Sunday's game, but should be good to go moving forward.

Charlie Blackmon (ankle) is not in the Rockies' lineup Sunday.

Blackmon turned his ankle during Saturday's game, though he gutted it out in the 11-inning affair. X-rays came back clean and he is considered day-to-day. Drew Stubbs is in center field Sunday.
Sun, Jul 20, 2014 11:17:00 AM

Charlie Blackmon finished 5-for-5 with an RBI but the Rockies fell to the Twins on Saturday.

Colorado actually out-hit Minnesota 13-12 but lost the game 9-3. Blackmon did his part, smacking singles in the first, third, fifth, seventh, and ninth innings. He has a strong .306/.352/.483 batting line on the year.
Sat, Jul 12, 2014 08:02:00 PM

Charlie Blackmon went 3-for-5 with a run scored in a win over the Giants on Sunday.

The game was the third three-hit game in the last four contests for Blackmon. The outfielder continues to show that his early success wasn't a total mirage, as he's hitting .307/.354/.506 on the year. Buoyed by his torrid April, the 27-year-old also remains on the leaderboard in most of the offensive categories in the National League.
Sun, Jun 15, 2014 10:00:00 PM

Charlie Blackmon homered, doubled twice, walked and drove in three runs against the Braves on Thursday.

Blackmon's average has tumbled in a big way since his awesome April, but he still has seven homers and five steals since the beginning of May. He may never again play as well as he did during the first month of the season, but he can remain a fantasy asset.

Charlie Blackmon went 1-for-4 with a walk, a stolen base, and a solo home run in Thursday's loss to the D'backs.

Blackmon put the Rockies on the board with a first-inning homer off of Bronson Arroyo. He stole second base as part of a double-steal, giving him 11 on the season. While Blackmon has cooled off considerably after his otherworldly start to the season, he is still slashing .308/.352/.514 on the season with 11 home runs and 39 RBI.

Leading off against Jason Vargas, Charlie Blackmon went 0-for-4 in the loss to the Royals on Wednesday.

Blackmon's success against lefties has earned him more chances against them, but now that he's fading some, we'll see if that holds up. He'll probably resume being platooned with Drew Stubbs in center once Michael Cuddyer comes off the DL. He should remain a force in mixed leagues anyway.
Wed, May 14, 2014 05:37:00 PM

Charlie Blackmon is not in Monday's lineup against the Rangers.

He's taking a seat with left-hander Martin Perez on the hill for the Rangers. Drew Stubbs will make the start in center field while Brandon Barnes will play right.
Mon, May 5, 2014 05:02:00 PM

Charlie Blackmon stayed hot Friday against the Mets, going 3-for-5 with a solo home run, two RBI, and three runs scored as part of a 10-3 victory.

Blackmon just keeps hitting. The early-season sensation now has six home runs on the year and owns a ridiculous .380/.420/.630 batting line through 30 games. He's showing no signs of slowing down.
