The winner of the left field competition between Corey Dickerson, Charlie Blackmon and Drew Stubbs would likely serve as the Rockies' leadoff hitter this season, Troy Renck reports.
Stubbs has 15/30 talent, we've seen it before, but he's also extremely unpredictable given his love of the strikeout and what it does to his batting average and OBP. He's the best hope to make a significant impact in the fantasy game.ANALYST: Ray Flowers
Whiteside went to the bench with an ankle injury.
Whiteside injured the ankle or foot on a rebound and came up limping a bit, so with him just recently coming back from a hip injury it's likely a precautionary move to take him out. He was effective in Sunday's loss however with a double-double off the bench behind starter A'mare Stoudemire. More updates to follow once the extent of the injury and timeframe are better known.
