Charlie Blackmon homered and scored twice in Saturday's Cactus League loss to the Indians.

The homer was Blackmon's first of the spring, also giving him his first RBI. The outfielder broke out in 2014, hitting .288/.335/.440 with 19 homers and 28 steals, but some regression is expected in his follow-up campaign. Still, the combination of power and speed in Coors Field makes him plenty mixed league worthy.

Charlie Blackmon said Wednesday after his Cactus League debut that the pain in his abdomen is mostly gone.

Blackmon finished 0-for-2 with a strikeout against the Mariners, but the results aren't important right now. What matters is that he's over his early-camp abdominal discomfort and ready to get properly tuned up for the start of the 2015 regular season. Blackmon, 28, batted .288/.335/.440 with 19 home runs, 72 RBI, 28 stolen bases, and 82 runs scored in 154 games last year.

Charlie Blackmon (abdomen) will make his first Cactus League appearance on Wednesday.

Blackmon had been dealing with abdominal tightness. It's not much more than a minor injury and he should be ready to go for Opening Day. Blackmon put up a breakout season for the Rockies in 2014, picking up the slack for injured stars Troy Tulowitzki and Carlos Gonzalez. He slashed .288/.335/.440 to go with 19 home runs and 28 stolen bases.

Charlie Blackmon (abdomen) is expected to make his Cactus League debut within the next couple days.

Blackmon is a little behind the other Rockies' hitters due to minor abdominal tightness, but he's progressing nicely. As long as he doesn't have a setbacks, he'll have plenty of time to get in enough at-bats prior to Opening Day.
Mar 8 - 3:52 PM

Charlie Blackmon is not in Wednesday's Cactus League lineup due to slight abdominal discomfort.

He's expected to take batting practice Wednesday, so it doesn't sound like something that will keep him out of the lineup for long. Blackmon is coming off a breakout season in which he batted .288/.335/.440 with 19 home runs and 28 stolen bases.
Mar 4 - 1:53 PM

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.

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.

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.
