Charlie Blackmon went 3-for-5 with an RBI and two runs scored against the Phillies on Friday.
Nice to see after he went 1-for-10 over his previous three games. That qualifies as an extended slump for him. Blackmon is now hitting .426 (26-for-61) with seven extra-base hits, 10 RBI, four stolen bases, and 11 runs scored through 18 games this season. We wouldn't rule out the possibility that he'll remain useful in mixed leagues all season, but there might still be some time to sell high here. Apr 19 - 1:26 AM

Charlie Blackmon went 2-for-3 and collected his third stolen base in Saturday's win over the Giants.

The hot start continues for Blackmon, who is batting .500 with a 1.249 OPS, eight runs scored, and nine RBI in 12 games. He's sure to regress some, but the 27-year-old center fielder is a must-own for now in all standard fantasy leagues. Blackmon is serving as the primary leadoff man in a very good Colorado lineup.
Apr 12 - 7:00 PM

Charlie Blackmon followed up Friday's masterpiece with three more hits in four at-bats Saturday.

He has nine hits in two days. All of tonight's hits were singles. He also stole his second base of the year.
Apr 5 - 11:29 PM

Charlie Blackmon had a memorable afternoon in Friday's 12-2 rout of the Diamondbacks, going 6-for-6 with four runs scored and five RBI.

The six hits tied a Rockies franchise record. Blackmon belted a two-run homer off Randall Delgado in the fourth inning and also doubled three times in the impressive showing. He's now slashing an absurd .563/.588/.938 on the season and could position himself to get more at-bats over Corey Dickerson or Drew Stubbs.

After drawing the start in center, Charles Blackmon went 0-for-4 against the Marlins on Monday.

Blackmon started and even led off tonight, even though he had a spring OPS 200 points worse than any of the other three center field options on the Rockies' roster. Not that spring performance should be that much of a factor, but Blackmon appeared to be behind Corey Dickerson and Drew Stubbs on the depth chart going into March.

Charlie Blackmon started over Corey Dickerson in center field against the Marlins Monday.

The prevailing thought was that Corey Dickerson had the edge for the center field job, especially after he easily out-hit Blackmon this spring. However, Rockies manager Walt Weiss likes Blackmon's defense in center better. "Charlie's got more time out there than Corey does, and to be honest with you, Charlie may have been our best player the last month of [last] season," Weiss said. "He was the right guy to be out there." It's frustrating news for fantasy owners, as Dickerson is the more appealing option, but the two players' roles could easily wind up flip-flopping.
Mar 31 - 8:47 PM

Charlie Blackmon had a nice day at the plate on Sunday, going 3-for-5 with an RBI and a stolen base as the Rockies and Dodgers played to a 2-2 tie.

The 27-year-old outfielder raised his average from .207 to .265 in the process. It's just the type of day that he needed as he's trying to secure a reserve outfielder role with the Rockies.
Mar 16 - 10:26 PM

Charlie Blackmon went 3-for-4 with a double, two RBI and a run scored in Monday's victory against the Cardinals.

Blackmon has parlayed regular at-bats against right-handers into a decent .285/.313/.435 slash line with four homers, 17 RBI and six steals over 193 at-bats. Those numbers aren't good enough for mixed league players, but Blackmon has been a decent NL-only player since last month.

Charlie Blackmon hit a pinch-hit home run in the Rockies' loss to the Mets on Tuesday.

The homer came in the top of the sixth inning and tied the game at 2-2. It was Blackmon's second home run of the year and first since his first game with the Rockies on May 12.

Charlie Blackmon went 2-for-5 with a triple and two RBI in Wednesday's victory in San Diego.

The 27-year-old has ridden the shuttle between Colorado Springs and Denver this season and won't garner enough at-bats to warrant attention outside of deep NL-only leagues. He's batting .229/.250/.371 over just 35 at-bats for the Rockies.

Blackmon is going to fill the roster spot left vacant by right-hander Roy Oswalt, who is headed to the 15-day disabled list with a strained left hamstring. Blackmon has hit .240/.269/.360 in 12 games this season with the Rockies. He will not carry any sort of fantasy value.
