D.J. LeMahieu finished 2-for-4 with a solo homer Tuesday in the Rockies' loss to the Diamondbacks.

LeMahieu belted a solo shot off Patrick Corbin in the second inning and added a single in the fifth. The home run was just the sixth this season for the 27-year-old second baseman, who boasts a .313/.372/.412 overall batting line.

Yohan Flande allowed two earned runs over five innings Tuesday as the Rockies dropped the first game of a doubleheader against the Diamondbacks.

Arizona racked up five hits and three walks in five innings against Flande and then lit up Rockies reliever Miguel Castro in the sixth and seventh. Flande has a 4.04 ERA and 1.33 WHIP in seven starts and eight relief appearances this season for Colorado.

Rockies recalled 1B Wilin Rosario from Triple-A Albuquerque.

Rosario slashed .273/.293/.426 in 69 games with the Rockies this season. He was sent down near the end of July, but sees another opportunity with the expansion of rosters. He hit five homers in 183 at-bats prior to his earlier demotion.

Carlos Gonzalez is not in the starting lineup for the first game of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Diamondbacks.

Brandon Barnes will start in right field. Look for CarGo to play in the nightcap.

Rockies recalled RHP Miguel Castro from Triple-A Albuquerque.

You might have heard Castro's name before, as he was one of the notable names in the Rockies trade of Troy Tulowitzki. He cracked the Blue Jays Opening Day lineup, but posted just a 4.38 ERA and 12/6 K/BB ratio over 12 1/3 innings. He has a major league arm but needs to continue to refine his control. The Rockies will likely want to see what they have with the 20-year-old, so he could see some legitimate run this month.
Sep 1 - 1:24 PM

Rockies recalled LHP Rex Brothers from Triple-A Albuquerque.

Brothers was viewed by many to be a potential closer-in-groom, but he was rocked in three big league appearances this season to the tune of a 6.75 ERA over 2 2/3 innings. His Triple-A numbers aren't much shinier, as he owned a 4.46 ERA and 61/44 K/BB ratio across 42 1/3 innings at that level. He's not going to fulfill closer expectations walking more than a batter an inning.
Sep 1 - 1:20 PM

Rockies recalled INF Christhian Adames from Triple-A Albuquerque.

In an earlier cup of coffee with the Rockies, Adames picked up one hit in 15 at-bats. He was hitting .311/.362/.438 with 11 homers, 51 RBI and 11 steals across 463 Triple-A at-bats prior to joining the rest of the September call-ups this Tuesday. He might steal a bag or two in the next month, but he's unlikely to see enough playing time for fantasy purposes.

Rockies activated LHP Boone Logan from the 15-day disabled list.

Logan was battling a bout of elbow inflammation. Such injuries have followed him over the last two seasons--he also needed surgery for removal of a bone spur last September. The situational lefty had pitched to a 4.75 ERA covering 30 1/3 innings prior to the elbow woes.
Sep 1 - 1:11 PM

Rockies activated RHP Kyle Kendrick from the 15-day disabled list.

Right shoulder inflammation sidelined Kendrick for the entirety of August. His numbers are enough to inflame any shoulder, as he was pitching to a 6.43 ERA over 21 starts. The 31-year-old right-hander is not a palatable fantasy option.
Sep 1 - 1:08 PM

Charlie Blackmon went 3-for-4 with a double, a triple, a walk, and a stolen base in Monday's 5-4 walk-off victory against the Diamondbacks.

Blackmon led off the third inning with a triple and scored his only run of the ballgame. The outfielder heads into the final month with strong numbers, batting .292/.354/.465 with 15 home runs, 51 RBI, 73 runs scored, and 36 stolen bases.
Sep 1 - 12:23 AM

Chad Bettis struggled, allowing four runs in six innings, but left with a no-decision as the Rockies came back to beat the Diamondbacks on Monday.

Bettis allowed 11 hits, setting a season-high. Three of the runs came in during the third inning, including two on an A.J. Pollock home run. The right-hander walked none and struck out four on the evening as well. Bettis will head into a home start versus the Giants with a 4.78 ERA, a 1.43 WHIP, and a 73/32 K/BB ratio over 86 2/3 innings.
Sep 1 - 12:22 AM

Ben Paulsen sent the Rockies home winners on Monday, hitting a two-run walk-off single in the ninth inning to down the Diamondbacks.

Paulsen pinch-hit for Matt McBride, prompting D'Backs manager Chip Hale to replace closer Brad Ziegler with lefty Matt Reynolds. Paulsen ripped a Reynolds offering up the middle to plate the tying and game-winning runs. The Rockies haven't had much to brag about, but Paulsen is having a solid year, batting .283/.333/.485 with 10 home runs and 44 RBI in 298 plate appearances.
Sep 1 - 12:14 AM

Justin Morneau (concussion) will be re-evaluated by the Rockies on Thursday.

It's possible he'll be activated at that time if the Rockies deem him fit to return to action. Morneau hasn't played since mid-May due to a concussion and cervical neck sprain, but he went 4-for-9 in three rehab games with Double-A New Britain over the weekend.
Aug 31 - 6:16 PM

Corey Dickerson (ribs) will take batting practice on Monday.

It will be his first time doing so since he suffered non-displaced fractures of two ribs back in late July. Dickerson probably half-jokingly said that he could play Tuesday if the Rockies would let him, but they won't. Regardless, it does appear he's making progress so we can't rule out him regaining fantasy relevance in September.
Aug 31 - 5:40 PM

Rockies OF prospect Jordan Patterson connected on a 15th-inning walk-off home run Sunday for Double-A New Britain.

The home run capped the Rock Cats' home slate for this year, ending the team's 20-year run in New Britain. Patterson, the Rockies' No. 23 prospect according to MLB.com, went 2-for-8 in the contest with three RBI. He's hit .279 since his call-up from High-A Modesto on July 16 with seven homers and 28 RBI in 154 at-bats.
