  • Rockies' Charlie Blackmon: Goes deep again Saturday

    Blackmon went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in a loss to the Mets on Saturday.

    Blackmon brought the Rockies to within a run with his two-run blast in the fifth frame, but that was the last time Colorado was able to score. The homer was Blackmon's second in as many games since he returned from a hamstring injury that resulted in him sitting out three matchups. The veteran outfielder had gone deep just twice over his previous 26 games prior to leaving the park in back-to-back contests.

  • Rockies' Charlie Blackmon: Belts fifth homer

    Blackmon went 1-for-4 with a walk and a solo home run in Friday's 7-6 loss to the Mets.

    The 38-year-old outfielder lofted a Jake Diekman fastball off the facing of the second deck in right field at Citi Field in the eighth inning, one of nine combined homers by the two teams on the night -- the highest single-game total in the majors this season. Blackmon missed the prior three games with a sore hamstring, but he looked healthy in his return as the DH. The blast was his second long ball through eight games in July, and his fifth of the year.

  • Rockies' Charlie Blackmon: In lineup Friday

    Blackmon (hamstring) is the DH and batting leadoff Friday against the Mets.

    Blackmon has been nursing a sore right hamstring stemming from a sliding catch he made Monday. After spending three straight games on the bench, the 37-year-old is back in the starting nine Friday, although he's still not quite ready for a defensive role. Blackmon is slashing .256/.325/.402 with four homers and five stolen bases over 280 plate appearances this season.

  • Rockies' Charlie Blackmon: Out again due to hamstring issue

    Blackmon is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Reds due to a slight right hamstring injury, MLB.com reports.

    Manager Bud Black said that Blackmon "tweaked" his hamstring while making a sliding catch during Monday's 6-0 loss to the Reds. The lefty-hitting Blackmon received a planned day off Tuesday while the Reds sent southpaw Nick Lodolo to the mound, but the 38-year-old's continued absences from the lineup against right-handed starters Frankie Montas and Hunter Greene on Wednesday and Thursday, respectively, signals that Blackmon is still being slowed by the injury. Blackmon had been available for pinch-hitting duties in Wednesday's 6-5 win but went unused, so he could once again be a candidate to come off the bench Thursday.

  • Rockies' Charlie Blackmon: Out against right-hander

    Blackmon is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game in Cincinnati.

    The lefty-hitting Blackmon sat out Tuesday's 12-6 loss with a lefty (Nick Lodolo) on the mound, but it's a bit more surprising that he's on the bench again Wednesday while right-hander Frankie Montas takes the hill for Cincinnati. The Rockies will give Brenton Doyle a start at designated hitter in Blackmon's stead while Sam Hilliard patrols center field.

  • Rockies' Charlie Blackmon: Sitting versus southpaw

    Blackmon is not in the lineup for Tuesday's game in Cincinnati.

    Tough southpaw Nick Lodolo is starting the game for the Reds, so the left-handed hitting Blackmon will grab a seat. Hunter Goodman will draw the start in right field for the Rockies, while Elias Diaz serves as the designated hitter.

  • Rockies' Charlie Blackmon: Out against lefty

    Blackmon is not in the lineup for Friday's contest versus the Royals.

    Tough lefty Cole Ragans will be on the hill for Kansas City, so the left-handed hitting Blackmon will begin the contest on the bench. Elias Diaz is getting a start at designated hitter while Jacob Stallings does the catching.

  • Rockies' Charlie Blackmon: Sitting versus lefty

    Blackmon isn't in the Rockies' lineup for Tuesday's game versus the Brewers, Luke Zahlmann of The Denver Gazette reports.

    The left-handed bat of Blackmon will step out of the lineup Tuesday versus fellow southpaw Dallas Keuchel. Hunter Goodman will move into right field as a result while Elias Diaz serves as the DH, allowing Jacob Stallings to start behind the plate and bat sixth.

  • Rockies' Charlie Blackmon: Returns from IL

    The Rockies reinstated Blackmon (hamstring) from the 10-day injured list Saturday.

    Blackmon has been held out of action since he strained his right hamstring June 18 against the Dodgers, but he was able to recover quickly and will now return from the IL following a minimum-length stay. The 37-year-old outfielder had been heating up at the plate prior to getting injured, slashing .333/.397/.509 across 63 plate appearances since the beginning of June. Sean Bouchard (back) was optioned to Triple-A Albuquerque in a corresponding move.

  • Rockies' Charlie Blackmon: Likely back when first eligible

    Blackmon (hamstring) will meet the Rockies at the start of their series against the White Sox on Friday and is likely to be activated from the injured list when first eligible Saturday, MLB.com reports.

    Blackmon has been working out in Denver and is apparently fully recovered from the hamstring strain. The veteran outfielder's return hasn't been made official, but it appears he'll end up spending only the 10-day minimum on the injured list.

  • Rockies' Charlie Blackmon: Lands on IL with strained hamstring

    The Rockies placed Blackmon on the 10-day injured list Friday, retroactive to June 19, due to a right hamstring strain.

    Blackmon missed the last three games after injuring his hamstring Tuesday against the Dodgers. Prior to the injury, Blackmon was slashing .333/.397/.509 with 10 runs, seven doubles and two RBI over 57 at-bats in June. In Blackmon's absence, Jake Cave and Sean Bouchard are likely to form a platoon in right field.

  • Rockies' Charlie Blackmon: Remains out of action

    Blackmon (hamstring) remains out of the lineup for Friday's game against the Nationals.

    It's the third straight contest he's missed as he deals with right hamstring tightness. The Rockies have been bullish on Blackmon's chances of avoid the injured list, but he'll have to be ready soon for that to happen. Hunter Goodman is at designated hitter and Sean Bouchard is in right field Friday.

  • Rockies' Charlie Blackmon: Missing second straight start

    Blackmon (hamstring) is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Dodgers, Luke Zahlmann of The Denver Gazette reports.

    He'll stay on the bench for a second straight game while he manages a tight right hamstring. Blackmon's absence clears the way for Jake Cave and Elehuris Montero to pick up another start in right field and at designated hitter, respectively. The Rockies are expecting Blackmon to avoid a stint on the injured list, though the team could change its tune if he isn't ready to go for Friday's series opener versus the Nationals.

  • Rockies' Charlie Blackmon: Battling hamstring tightness

    Blackmon exited Tuesday's game against the Dodgers due to right hamstring tightness, Patrick Lyons of JustBaseball.com reports.

    Blackmon was seen grabbing at his hamstring while running into third base during the first inning of Tuesday's game, and he eventually had to come out of the game during the second frame. The Rockies have not offered any information regarding the severity of the 37-year-old's injury, but it's possible he sits out at least a game or two to avoid playing with any lingering soreness.

    Blackmon appeared to grab at his right leg while running from first to third base on a single during the first inning, and Elehuris Montero pinch hit for him during the second. The Rockies will take a look at Blackmon to determine the exact nature of his injury, and more information on his status should be available soon.
