Latest Update D.J. LeMahieu is not in the Rockies starting lineup on Saturday. Sat Jul, 05, 12:54 PM
Has good speed, athleticism and projectable power due to his 6-4 frame. Can play a few different infield positions, which adds value to his profile.
Flaws: : Needs to curb his penchant for the strikeout in order to maximize his potential, since he's also a bit impatient and lacks the ability to draw a lot of walks.
Charlie Culberson will take over for LeMahieu at the bottom of the order and at second. Analyst: Ivar G. Anderson
LeMahieu was the sole bright spot in the Rockies offense on Tuesday night, as he drove in the only run of the game off a shot over the fence. He is now sitting on a .272 average with three home runs and 24 RBI through his first 257 at-bats, but should remain on the wavier wire outside of NL-only leagues, considering he really only contributes in one category (batting average). Analyst: Matthew Beck
LeMahieu has now driven in three runs in his last four games, now sitting on a .265 average with two home runs and 19 RBI on the season. Although it is not ideal to own a player hitting in the bottom third of a lineup, the Rockies second baseman is someone to keep an eye considering how many runs his team scores on a nightly basis. Analyst: Matthew Beck
LeMahieu is now 7-for-17 (.412 BA) over his last five games logging four extra-base hits (2 HR), two RBI and four runs scored over his last five games. Although he doesn't provide much outside of the batting average department (.285), the Rockies second baseman is worth monitoring in the event his recent production continues beyond the last few days.Analyst: Matthew Beck
