  • Rockies' Jake Cave: Productive start to second half

    Cave went 1-for-3 with a walk, a double and a stolen base Sunday against the Giants.

    Cave has served in a large-side platoon role for much of the last two months and he's maintained a .258 batting average for the season. His production has otherwise been mostly empty, though he went yard Friday as a pinch hitter to tally his third home run and also recorded his fourth stolen base of the year Sunday.

  • Rockies' Jake Cave: Idle against lefty

    Cave is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Mets.

    With southpaw Jose Quintana on the hill for the Mets, the lefty-hitting Cave will retreat to the bench for the series finale. Hunter Goodman will step in for Cave in right field.

  • Rockies' Jake Cave: Sitting against lefty

    Cave is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Reds.

    The lefty-hitting Cave will retreat to the bench for the series opener in Cincinnati after he had started in four of the Rockies' previous five contests. With southpaw Andrew Abbott on the bump for the Reds, Cave will cede his spot in the lineup to the right-handed-hitting Aaron Schunk, who will get the start at third base while Ryan McMahon serves as the Rockies' designated hitter.

  • Rockies' Jake Cave: Smacks go-ahead home run

    Cave went 1-for-3 with a solo homer in Thursday's 4-3 win over the Brewers.

    Cave launched a 430-foot solo homer on the second pitch he saw in the bottom of the sixth to put Colorado on top 4-3. It was the outfielder's first home run of the campaign, and he's now hit safely in two of his last three games to open the month of July. Over that brief stretch he's batting .455 (5-for-11) with two RBI, two runs scored and a stolen base.

  • Rockies' Jake Cave: Sitting against righty

    Cave is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the White Sox.

    The lefty-hitting Cave had started in right field or left field in each of the last five games -- all against right-handed pitchers -- but he'll take a seat Sunday while southpaw Garrett Crochet takes the hill. The Rockies will roll out an outfield of Nolan Jones, Brenton Doyle and Charlie Blackmon from left to right.

  • Rockies' Jake Cave: Gains regular spot in lineup vs. RHPs

    Cave will start in right field and bat eighth in Wednesday's game against the Astros.

    The lefty-hitting Cave looks to have moved into a strong-side platoon role in the Colorado outfield. He'll pick up a start in the outfield Wednesday for the Rockies' eighth straight matchup with a right-handed starting pitcher. The 31-year-old owns a .250/.303/.326 slash line with no home runs and two stolen bases over 145 plate appearances on the season, so he'll likely struggle to deliver much meaningful fantasy value even if he continues to see steady playing time versus righties.

  • Rockies' Jake Cave: Back on bench Monday

    Cave is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Dodgers.

    Cave had started in 11 of the Rockies' last 12 games, but he'll head to the bench with Nolan Jones having returned from the injured list and with Brenton Doyle (knee) back in the lineup after a two-game absence. Though Cave has turned in a serviceable .250/.341/.389 slash line thus far in June, he could be relegated to a bench role now that Colorado has reclaimed some health in the outfield.

  • Rockies' Jake Cave: Huge game in return

    Cave (head) went 3-for-5 with a double, a triple, three RBI and three runs scored Saturday against Pittsburgh.

    Cave was hit in the head during batting practice Friday but returned to the lineup one day later. He participated in Colorado's 16-run offensive outburst in a significant way, and he now has at least one hit in each of his last four starts. Cave entered the lineup with Brenton Doyle (knee) scratched, though he may find consistent playing time hard to come by assuming Doyle doesn't require a stint on the injured list.

  • Rockies' Jake Cave: Back in lineup Saturday

    Cave (head) is playing right field and batting seventh Saturday against Pittsburgh.

    After being hit in the head by a line drive Friday during pre-game BP, Cave was cleared for action Saturday and will start in right field. Prior to the incident, Cave had generated a hit in three straight games and owns a .607 OPS on the year.

  • Rockies' Jake Cave: Expected to be fine

    Cave received four stitches after being hit in the head by a line drive during pregame batting practice Friday, Patrick Lyons of JustBaseball.com reports.

    Although Cave had to be carted off the field following the incident, he said after Friday's game that he felt fine and that there isn't any reason to suspect he might have suffered a concussion. It's possible the Rockies will keep the 31-year-old outfielder sidelined for another game or two just to be safe, but a trip to the injured list doesn't seem likely. Cave has slashed .238/.302/.305 with seven RBI through 116 plate appearances on the season.

  • Rockies' Jake Cave: Carted off field during BP

    Cave was carted off the field during the Rockies' pre-game batting practice after being hit in the side of the head by a line drive, Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post reports.

    Cave was stationed in right field as the Rockies took BP. Trainers were seen applying pressure to the outfielder's head before he was carted off the field. Cave was slated to bat eighth and play right field but was scratched after the incident. The severity of the injury isn't yet known.

  • Rockies' Jake Cave: Playing-time window reopens

    Cave will start in left field and bat seventh in Monday's game against the Twins, Luke Zahlmann of The Denver Gazette reports.

    Cave will nab his seventh consecutive start in the Colorado outfield, despite going 2-for-16 with five walks in the first six of those contests. Though he's benefited from extra opportunities due to Kris Bryant (ribs) and Sean Bouchard (ankle) recently joining Jordan Beck (hand) and Nolan Jones (knee) on the injured list, Cave is a prime candidate to lose out on a regular lineup spot in the near future with Jones' return seemingly imminent.

  • Rockies' Jake Cave: Chance for short-term playing time

    Cave went 1-for-4 with two strikeouts Wednesday against the Reds.

    Cave drew a start in his second consecutive game Wednesday, and he should have the chance to see his playing time tick up in the short term with both Kris Bryant (ribs) and Sean Bouchard (ankle) sidelined. Cave has had limited power production, though he's hit a respectable .247 and has tallied 11 runs scored in 92 plate appearances for the season. Even if his playing time ticks up in the short term, he will likely return to being a bench bat as soon as Nolan Jones (knee) can return.

  • Rockies' Jake Cave: Losing work to Sean Bouchard

    Cave is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Guardians.

    Even with fellow outfielder Jordan Beck (hand) landing on the injured list Sunday, Cave has seen his opportunities take a hit. The lefty-hitting Cave will hit the bench for a fourth straight game Wednesday, with two absences coming against lefties and two coming versus right-handed pitchers. Sean Bouchard has started in all four of those contests and appears to be the preferred option at the corner-outfield spot opposite Charlie Blackmon.

  • Rockies' Jake Cave: Sitting vs. southpaw

    Cave is out of the starting lineup for Sunday's series finale against the Phillies.

    The lefty-hitting Cave will begin Sunday's contest in the dugout as Philadelphia sends out left-hander Ranger Suarez. Hunter Goodman will start in right field in Cave's stead and will bat ninth.

  • Rockies' Jake Cave: Idle against lefty

    Cave is out of the lineup for Friday's game against the Phillies.

    The lefty-hitting Cave will be on the bench Friday against southpaw Cristopher Sanchez. Hunter Goodman will start in right field and bat eighth.

  • Rockies' Jake Cave: Hitting bench Wednesday

    Cave is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Athletics.

    Though he'll hit the bench Wednesday against right-hander Mitch Spence, the lefty-hitting Cave could still be included in the lineup versus righties more often than not, at least until Nolan Jones (back) returns from the injured list. Cave looked to be at risk of losing out on playing time when Kris Bryant was activated Tuesday, but Cave started in right field in the Rockies' series-opening loss and went 1-for-4 to extend his hitting streak to seven games. Rather than Cave, Elehuris Montero has been the main loser thus far since Bryant's return, as Montero has sat out twice in a row.
