Charlie Blackmon (quad/hamstring) went 0-for-3 with a walk and a run scored in his return to the Rockies' lineup on Friday.

Charlie Blackmon exited Wednesday's win over the Padres due to cramping in his quad/hamstring.

Blackmon was pulled in the middle of his sixth-inning at-bat -- always an ominous sign -- but we can all breathe a sigh of relief, now, as after the game, manager Bud Black said that it was merely due to a cramping issue. Blackmon should be fine moving forward, though the Rockies could always give him a day or two off just to make sure.

Charlie Blackmon was pulled from the game midway through an at-bat in the sixth inning due to a possible injury.

It is not quite clear what was up with Blackmon on this one. The Rockies training staff did not give him a particularly close look, despite the unorthodox nature of leaving midway through an at-bat. The team should pass along a specific update as to Blackmon's health later on Wednesday.

Blackmon went yard in Colorado’s first at-bat of the afternoon, taking right-hander Zack Godley deep for his 16th homer of the year. He added to his tally with an RBI single in the eighth inning. Blackmon isn’t stealing bases like he did a few years ago, but it’s tough to complain when he’s hitting a ridiculous .328 with 56 RBI. The 30-year-old has been especially dominant at Coors Field, batting .390 at the Rockies’ home park.

Charlie Blackmon is absent from the Rockies' starting lineup for Saturday's game against the Giants.

It's just a routine day off for the dynamic outfielder, but comes as a major disappointment for those who wanted to exploit a pristine matchup against Matt Cain at Coors Field on Saturday afternoon. Raimel Tapia is starting in his place in center field and batting leadoff for the Rockies.

Jun 9 - 6:11 PM

Charlie Blackmon went 2-for-3 with a pair of doubles and an RBI in Thursday's win over the Cubs.

Blackmon doubled home a run off Jon Lester in the second inning, which DJ LeMahieu followed up with a three-run home run. Those four runs were all the Rockies would manage in the game, but the Cubs were almost completely shut down by Tyler Chatwood and company and four runs ended up working out just fine. Blackmon has been swinging a terrifyingly hot bat of late -- his two hits on Thursday gave him a streak of six consecutive multi-hit games and he has now doubled in four straight.
