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 has put together a fine season hitting .285 with 76 runs, 18 home runs, 70 RBI and 28 stolen bases.Analyst: Jonathan Impemba
With lefty Jon Niese on the mound for the Mets, Blackmon takes a seat. Right-handed hitters Drew Stubbs and Brandon Barnes will play center and right, respectively.Analyst: Howard Bender
Blackmon has put together a nice little run this past week and is finally waking up at the plate once again. He's now hit safely in six of his last seven games and has two home runs with six RBI, three runs scored and three stolen bases in that span. While he's been playing a little more lately while he's been hot, the Rockies are still rotating guys in fairly often.Analyst: Howard Bender
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
