Troy Tulowitzki had a huge day at the plate on Friday against the Phillies, going 3-for-3 with a home run, five RBI, a walk, and two runs scored.

Tulo terrorized the Phillies on Friday, delivering a three-run homer in the second inning, an RBI double in the fourth, and an RBI single in the sixth. Oh, and he also drew a 14-pitch walk against Jonathan Pettibone in a four-run first inning. The veteran shortstop is hitting .360 (18-for-50) with eight extra-base hits (two home runs), 11 RBI, and a .460 on-base percentage through 16 games. It goes without saying, but he's a fantasy monster when healthy.

Tyler Chatwood gave up an unearned run on two hits and a walk over seven innings in a 12-1 blowout win over the Phillies on Friday.

Chatwood didn't give up his first hit until Cody Asche singled against him with two outs in the fifth inning. The next batter, Jayson Nix, then drove in the only run of the game against him. He struck out six in the victory. Chatwood's ability to induce grounders comes in handy at Coors Field, but he doesn't miss enough bats to be all that interesting in standard fantasy leagues.

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.

Michael Cuddyer (hamstring) is not in the Rockies' lineup Friday.

Cuddyer expected to miss at least one game after leaving Thursday's contest with a left hamstring cramp. He should be back in there over the weekend. Charlie Blackmon is in right field Friday, with Drew Stubbs in center.

Rockies prospect 3B Ryan McMahon continued to his torrid start to the season Thursday, going 1-for-3 with a home run for Low-A Asheville.

The home run was McMahon's sixth in 14 games, and he's now batting .326/.439/.783 with 10 RBI and a 13/10 strikeout-to-walk ratio. Over the past week the 19-year-old is batting .400 (8-for-20) with two doubles, four home runs, six RBI and five walks. Given his current pace, McMahon could be in store for an ahead-of-schedule promotion to High-A Modesto, where he'll have the potential to post even better power numbers in the hitter-friendly California League.

Franklin Morales pitched six innings of one-run ball to earn his first win as the Rockies topped the Padres 3-1 on Thursday.

It was Morales' first win as a starter since last May 30 and his first win as a Rockie since 2009. He had lost each of his last eight decisions for the Rockies since Aug. 2, 2009. Of course, he did spend the last 2 1/2 years with the Red Sox before being traded back to Colorado over the winter. Morales isn't currently worth owning in NL-only leagues.
Apr 17 - 10:02 PM

LaTroy Hawkins recorded his fourth save with a scoreless ninth Thursday against the Padres.

Rex Brothers has been wild in the early going and Hawkins has yet to experience a misstep, so it doesn't look like the Rockies' closer gig will change hands anytime soon. Hawkins thus far has allowed three hits and one run in 5 2/3 innings of work.
Apr 17 - 9:59 PM

Michael Cuddyer (hamstring) expects to sit out Friday's game but does not expect to need a trip to the disabled list.

Cuddyer tweaked his left hamstring after grounding out to shortstop in the seventh inning Thursday. The Rockies are calling him day-to-day, and is sounds like he should be ready to play sometime over the weekend.
Apr 17 - 9:46 PM

Michael Cuddyer left Thursday's game against the Padres with a left hamstring cramp.

He came up gimpy after grounding out to shortstop in the seventh inning. It's good that the Rockies are only calling it a cramp, and they're listing Cuddyer as day-to-day for now. Still, he figures to miss at least a game or two.
Apr 17 - 8:58 PM

Brett Anderson underwent successful surgery Thursday on his fractured left index finger.

Anderson had four pins inserted into the broken finger to stabilize it and allow for proper healing. The left-hander has already been placed on the disabled list and is expected to be out for the next 4-6 weeks.
Apr 17 - 3:28 PM

Carlos Gonzalez is not in the Rockies' starting lineup on Thursday night against the Padres.

It's just a day of rest for the star outfielder. Corey Dickerson will bat third versus San Diego.
Apr 17 - 3:23 PM

Justin Morneau finished 3-for-3 with a double, homer and two RBI in a loss to the Friars on Wednesday.

Morneau has clearly enjoyed his escape from Target Field to Coors, though he did his damage tonight at renowned hitter-killer Petco Park. At least in the early going, he looks like a different hitter: The veteran first sacker is slashing .354/.396/.542 with two homers and five RBI over 48 at-bats. He's had a lot of singles drop in, so the power will have to rise to compensate. It's worth noting that he hasn't hit 20 homers since 2009.
Apr 17 - 1:20 AM

Jorge De La Rosa hurled his first quality start of the season, allowing three runs -- two earned -- on seven hits over six innings in a 4-2 loss to the Padres on Wednesday.

The left-hander whiffed four and walked one. As implied above, this was by far De La Rosa's best start of the season, as he logged only 4 1/3 frames in each one of his first three outings. He's 0-3 with a 7.58 ERA, but look beneath the surface and you see a 1.42 WHIP and 20/8 K/BB ratio that suggest things haven't been as quite as bad as they appear. De La Rosa and the Rockies host San Francisco on Monday.
Apr 17 - 1:06 AM

LaTroy Hawkins earned his third save of the season Tuesday in the Rockies' 3-2 win over the Padres.

So far, so good for Colorado's 41-year-old offseason import. Since allowing a run in his Rockies' debut, Hawkins has strung together four consecutive scoreless appearances. He's 3-for-3 in save conversions to go with a 1.93 ERA and 0.86 WHIP. He's outpitching Rex Brothers right now.
Apr 16 - 1:47 AM

One night after suffering an elbow contusion, Michael Cuddyer went 1-for-4 with a steal and a run scored in Tuesday's 3-2 win against the Padres.

With Justin Morneau getting the night off, Cuddyer was free to man first base, a slice of the defensive spectrum that his stomach can handle at this point. He was fortunate to escape Monday's warning track fiasco after slamming into the fence with all his weight falling backwards after getting crossed up on Alexi Amarista's triple. In the batter's box, on the other hand, Cuddyer still looks very much at home, slashing .340/.400/.585 in the early going.
