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.

Jorge De La Rosa picked up his first win of the year after allowing one run in five innings against the Giants on Monday.

Fortunately, the Rockies had the big lead. Otherwise, De La Rosa might have gotten yanked after a walk and a ground-rule double in the fifth. He ended up throwing 102 pitches to get his 15 outs. It's a step in the right direction, but it doesn't make him any more fantasy relevant.
Apr 22 - 12:53 AM

Corey Dickerson went 3-for-4 with a two-run homer and a double against the Giants on Monday.

Dickerson should be worth playing in mixed leagues while Michael Cuddyer is out. It'd be foolish for the Rockies not to start him against all of the right-handers they face.
Apr 22 - 12:49 AM

Jhoulys Chacin (shoulder) is likely to make two more rehab starts.

Chacin has allowed seven runs with a 4/3 K/BB ratio in 7 1/3 innings over his first two rehab starts, but the important thing is that he feels good. He's looking at a return in early May if all goes well.
Apr 21 - 5:07 PM

Carlos Gonzalez (knee) is in Monday's lineup against the Giants.

Gonzalez left Sunday's game with left knee tendinitis, but he intends to play through it. The Rockies and fantasy owners will have to cross their fingers for the star outfielder.
Apr 21 - 5:05 PM

Rockies recalled INF Charlie Culberson from Triple-A Colorado Springs.

He'll take the place of the injured Michael Cuddyer (hamstring) on the active roster. Culberson is a .245/.269/.331 career hitter in the majors and can be ignored in fantasy leagues.
Apr 21 - 4:55 PM

Rockies placed OF Michael Cuddyer on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to April 18, with a left hamstring injury.

Cuddyer tweaked his hamstring last Thursday and sat out the entire weekend series against the Phillies, but he apparently needs more time to get back to 100 percent. Charlie Culberson will replace him on the active roster while Corey Dickerson figures to see an uptick in playing time during his absence. Dickerson is worth picking up in deeper mixed leagues for now.
Apr 21 - 4:51 PM

Justin Morneau went 2-for-4 with a home run and five RBI in Sunday's loss to the Phillies.

Morneau got it done in a number of different ways, singling in a run in the first inning, producing an RBI groundout in the third and lifting a sacrifice fly in the fifth before blasting a two-run homer in the seventh. He's been on an absolute tear lately, mashing three home runs and collecting 12 RBI during a five-game hitting streak. He's up to .344 with a .981 OPS for the season.
Apr 20 - 9:36 PM

Troy Tulowitzki went 3-for-3 with two runs scored in Sunday's loss to the Phillies.

Tulo was on base five times, walking twice, doubling twice and scoring two runs. The shortstop has nearly twice as many walks (13) as strikeouts (7) thus far this season, and he's slashing a ridiculous .393/.493/.661 through 18 games. He's in the top five in batting average, runs scored, walks, slugging percentage and OPS in the National League.
Apr 20 - 9:25 PM

Juan Nicasio allowed five runs -- four earned -- on seven hits in a no-decision against the Phillies on Sunday.

Nicasio served up home runs to Jimmy Rollins and Ryan Howard among his seven hits allowed. He's alternated good and bad starts thus far, owning a 4.30 ERA and 1.30 WHIP through four starts. He'll face another tough test Saturday against the Dodgers.
Apr 20 - 9:13 PM

Carlos Gonzalez was removed from Sunday's contest against the Phillies due to left knee tendinitis.

Gonzalez, who has been no stranger to knee injuries in the past, is considered day-to-day. Fantasy owners should monitor this situation closely and make sure to have another outfielder available in the event that CarGo misses a few games to begin the week.
Apr 20 - 7:41 PM

Michael Cuddyer (hamstring) remained out of the Rockies' lineup Sunday.

Cuddyer has now missed all three starts of the weekend series against the Phillies. There's been no talk of a disabled list stint to this point, but obviously it will become an option if he doesn't recover in a hurry. Brandon Barnes is in right field Sunday in Cuddyer's place.
Apr 20 - 1:16 PM

Jordan Lyles limited the Phillies to one (unearned) run in seven innings Saturday in the Rockies' 3-1 win.

Lyles was sharp, scattering five hits and a walk over his seven innings. He struck out just two batters and owns an underwhelming 14/6 K/BB ratio over 23 2/3 innings this season, but the other stats have been great. The 23-year-old will carry a 3-0 start, 3.04 ERA, and 1.14 WHIP into his next scheduled outing on the road against the Dodgers.
Apr 19 - 11:12 PM

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.
Apr 19 - 1:28 AM

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.
