|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(4/19/15) Rockies catcher Nick Hundley and second baseman DJ LeMahieu are not in the starting lineup for Sunday's matchup with the Dodgers in Los Angeles.

The Rockies are underdogs (+150) in Los Angeles Sunday.
Rockies surprising 2B LeMahieu cranks first homer Saturday
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(4/19/15) Rockies second baseman DJ LeMahieu had his nine-game hitting streak to start the season snapped Friday night. He apparently didn't take too kindly to it.
LeMahieu, a hot hitter on a hot-hitting team, provided most of the offense in a loss to the Dodgers with a two-run homer in the seventh inning off standout right-hander Zack Greinke. The RBI give him eight on the year and the performance improved his slash line to an impressive .463/.476/.585.
Rockies' LeMahieu, Hundley have had some success vs. Kershaw
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(4/16/15) When the Rockies and Dodgers kick off a three-game series Friday night in Los Angeles, Colorado will have the tough task of facing Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw. While the lefty is 13-5 with a 3.17 ERA in 26 career starts against Colorado, some Rockies batters have had success against him.
Catcher Nick Hundley is batting .310 (9 for 29) with one double, three walks and three RBI in his career against Kershaw. Second baseman DJ LeMahieu is batting .296 (8 for 27) with one double and one RBI in his career against the lefty.
LeMahieu is batting .514 (18 for 35) with one triple and six RBI in nine games this season, while Hundley is batting .321 (9 for 28) with one RBI and two doubles in seven games.
Rockies' Weiss on LeMahieu's hot start: 'Just a matter of time for DJ'
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(4/15/15) Rockies infielder DJ LeMahieu continued to swing a hot bat on Tuesday, as he drove in a run and had hit safely in all eight games this season. He finished 1 for 2 with a walk and a run scored in a 4-1 victory. LeMahieu is hitting .516 (16 for 31) with a triple and six RBI this season.
"It was just a matter of time for DJ," manager Walt Weiss said, per the Denver Post. "Sometimes for guys like DJ, it takes a little bit longer to grab attention from those outside the game, and maybe even some inside the game. But as far as we are concerned around here, we know how valuable he is.
"Over time, people start to appreciate him more. But it's also hard to ignore his hot start."
Rockies' DJ LeMahieu hits three-run triple in loss to Cubs
|by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com|
|(4/12/15) Rockies infielder DJ LeMahieu recorded three RBI in Sunday's 6-5 loss against the Cubs.
LeMahieu went 1 of 4 for the game but made his lone hit count. He hit a three-run triple in the second inning, scoring Corey Dickerson, Michael McKenry and Daniel Descalso. LeMahieu finished the series against the Cubs 7 for 12.
"He might have got star of the series award," Cubs manager Joe Maddon said, via MLB.com. "He was really good."
|2014 Summary: DJ LeMahieu has the potential for a high batting average and 20-plus steals that would allow him to be a top 20 second baseman in Fantasy -- even though he has just the slightest modicum of power. That potential was not realized in 2014, and LeMahieu fell outside the top 20 in both Rotisserie and Head-to-Head value. He did set career highs with five home runs and 59 runs, but he batted just .267 and was thrown out on 10 of his 20 stolen base attempts.|
Playing time status: LeMahieu's Gold Glove defense will likely keep him in the Rockies' lineup on a regular basis, if not quite on a daily basis.
2015 Outlook: There's no reason to assume LeMahieu can't improve upon his batting average, but he may not be able to even match his 10 steals. With a poor success rate, LeMahieu may not get the green light very often. That would pretty much ruin what value he has for deeper mixed leagues. At this point, LeMahieu is strictly an NL-only option.
