Latest Update Charlie Blackmon went 2-for-4 and belted his 17th home run of the year in the Rockies loss to the Diamondbacks on Sunday. Sun Aug, 31, 07:51 PM
Generates good power with his big frame, but can also run well for a big guy. Can play all three outfield positions, which adds to his value.
Flaws: : The jury is still out on whether he can hit left-handed pitching with consistency at the major-league level, so he may be limited to a reserve role.
Blackmon continues to produce for the Rockies even with all the injuries they have endured. After starting the season at an absurd pace, Blackmon has cooled off but not enough that his statistics drastically reduced. He still has a chance to join the 20/20 club as he only needs three more home runs to do so. Continue starting Blackmon in your line up but be wary of the fact that he often does not start when the opposing team is throwing a tough southpaw.Analyst: Colby Conway
Blackmon is now slashing .235/.283/.327 with two home runs and eight RBI over 98 August at-bats as he continues to fade down the stretch. Although he was a must-start in all formats after a great start to the season, his recent production has since made him expendable if there is a more consistent hitter sitting either as a reserve or on the wavier wire.Analyst: Matthew Beck
Blackmon is hitting .347 with 10 runs, one home run, four RBI and two stolen bases over his past 15 games but will sit tonight as Drew Stubbs starts in center for the Rockies.Analyst: Jonathan Impemba
With the Rockies facing southpaw Danny Duffy, they're going to stack as many right-handed bats in the lineup. That puts Blackmon on the bench with Drew Stubbs in center field and Brandon Barnes in right field for Wednesday's action.Analyst: Howard Bender
