Charlie Blackmon finished 2-for-4 with two RBI in the Rockies' loss to the Pirates on Monday.

Charlie Blackmon scored a run and stole a base in a win over the Cardinals on Tuesday.

Not in that order, of course, as Blackmon swiped the bag in the third inning ahead of a Nolan Arenado RBI single. The steal was Blackmon's third in four tries and came against one of the best in catcher Yadier Molina, a feather in his cap if nothing else. In 25 games, the 29-year-old is batting .287/.346/.436 with two homers, 13 RBI and 16 runs scored.

Charlie Blackmon went 1-for-4 with a two-run single in Saturday's win over the Mets.

Blackmon is now working on an 11-game hitting streak. Against the Mets on Saturday, he worked a two-run single to put a cap on a five-run second inning. It would be his only hit of the evening. After a slow, injury-marred April, he is slashing .348/.392/.556 with two homers, four doubles and 10 RBI over his first 12 games in May.

Charlie Blackmon went 3-for-4 with a double and an RBI against the Mets on Friday.

Blackmon pushed his average over .300 for the first time this season. He's working on a 10-game hitting streak, and this is his second straight game with three hits.
May 13 - 11:44 PM

Charlie Blackmon is not in the Rockies starting lineup on Friday.

It's nothing more than a day of rest for Blackmon, who missed much of the month of April with a toe injury. Gerardo Parra will slide over to center field while Ryan Raburn gets the start for the Rockies against left-hander Madison Bumgarner.
May 6 - 7:19 PM

Charlie Blackmon went 2-for-3 with a double in Wednesday's win over the Padres.

Blackmon missed a large chunk of April with a toe injury, but since his return to the lineup at the end of the month, he already has three two-hit games. Wednesday's double was his third of the season. While he is slashing a middling .240/.321/.400 through his first 50 at-bats, those numbers figure to rise as he re-acclimates to regular playing time. Last season, he hit .287/.347/.40 while cracking 17 homers, driving in 58 runs and swiping 43 bases.

Charlie Blackmon went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Tuesday's loss to the Padres.

Blackmon led off the contest with a solo home run against Padres starter Andrew Cashner in the top of the first inning. The dinger was his first of the 2016 campaign. A toe injury sidelined him for two weeks in April, but he has legitimate fantasy upside now that he is back in action. Last season, the 29-year-old outfielder slashed .287/.347/.450 with 17 homers, 58 RBI and 43 steals. A 20-20 season is not out of the question if he can maintain his health over the coming months.
May 4 - 1:12 AM

Rockies activated OF Charlie Blackmon from the 15-day disabled list.

Blackmon missed two weeks of action with a toe injury but is back at his regular spot atop the Rockies lineup on Friday. Prior to his injury, Blackmon was hitting just .185/.241/.333 with no homers and three RBI in his first eight games.

Charlie Blackmon (toe) is scheduled to play nine innings of center field Wednesday with High-A Modesto.

Blackmon went 0-for-4 with a strikeout in his rehab debut on Tuesday, but the Rockies are more worried about his turf toe than any offensive results and he reported no physical issues during or after the game. Blackmon should be ready to rejoin Colorado's active roster this weekend if his toe continues to hold up. He's been on the shelf since April 13.

Apr 24 - 1:56 PM

Charlie Blackmon (toe) is hoping to begin a rehab assignment next week.

He's been out with turf toe since April 13. Rockies manager Walt Weiss suggested Blackmon might only need a couple games to get ready. Gerardo Parra and Brandon Barnes have split time in center field during his absence.
Apr 23 - 7:37 PM

Charlie Blackmon (toe) admitted Thursday that he's not sure how long he'll be sidelined.

Blackmon was placed on the disabled list Thursday with an aggravation of a left turf toe injury that he initially suffered back in 2012. "It's sore," Blackmon said. "I don't know how long or how bad it is." The Rockies will shift Gerardo Parra over to center field while Blackmon is out, with Ben Paulsen, Ryan Raburn and Brandon Barnes picking up starts in left.
