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.
Jul 20 - 11:17 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.
Jul 12 - 8:02 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.
Jun 15 - 10:00 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.
Jun 12 - 6:13 PM

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.
Jun 6 - 12:27 AM

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.
May 14 - 5:37 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.
May 5 - 5:02 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.
May 3 - 12:05 AM

Charlie Blackmon singled in the go-ahead run in the top of the 11th in the Rockies' 5-4 win over the Dodgers on Friday.

Fortunately, the Rockies continued to add on from there, scoring three times in the top of the 11th before LaTroy Hawkins gave up a two-run homer to Adrian Gonzalez in the bottom of the inning. Blackmon's go-ahead hit was his only knock in five at-bats tonight. His average is down to .398, the first time it's slipped below .400 since April 3.
Apr 26 - 2:31 AM

Charlie Blackmon went 2-for-5 with a home run and four runs scored in Wednesday's loss to the Giants.

Blackmon's incredible April continues. The homer was his fifth, and his three RBI on the day gives him 16 RBI in 22 games. He also stole his sixth base of the year in the game. He's scored 10 runs in his last five games to increase his league-leading total to 19. And the list goes on. Right now, Blackmon can do no wrong.
Apr 23 - 7:42 PM

Charlie Blackmon hit his third and fourth homers in the Rockies' 8-2 defeat of the Giants on Monday.

Blackmon homered off Ryan Vogelsong in the second and Juan Gutierrez in the eighth. He also drew a walk in the game. To go along with his .411 average in 73 at-bats, Blackmon currently has a 5/5 K/BB ratio. That's pretty amazing for a guy who came in at 49/7 in 246 at-bats last year.
Apr 22 - 12:55 AM

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.
