Gonzalez, LeMahieu and Rosario have days off for Rockies

Brandon Barnes will fill in for Gonzalez and bat sixth.
Infielder DJ LeMahieu is also getting the day off. Daniel Descalso will play second base instead. Ben Paulsen is filling in for Wilin Rosario, who also has the day off.
Rockies 2B DJ LeMahieu trying to break out of slump
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(5/18/15) Rockies second baseman DJ LeMahieu is down nearly 100 points on his batting average in the month of May after starting red hot with a .406 average.
Manager Walt Weiss said it's just the cycle of the season and LeMahieu thinks he'll break out soon, according to MLB.com.
"It's the same every year," LeMahieu said. "You go into every spring training like, 'I'm not going to get frustrated this year. I'm going to keep going with it. Then you get to that point and you can't help but get frustrated, especially when the team's not going well, it compounds it.
"But I still feel good at the plate. I think I've got a hot streak coming and our team has a hot streak coming."
Rockies 2B D.J. LeMahieu finally starting to slide
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(5/11/15) For a guy batting .348, Rockies second baseman DJ LeMahieu sure is cold. His average has fallen 69 points over the last six games.
LeMahieu has two measly singles in his last 20 at-bats, though it's certainly excusable. He was destined to slump, having entered May batting .406. And he still boasts a .400 on-base percentage.
Rockies' Charlie Blackmon returns to leadoff spot Saturday
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(5/2/15) Rockies center fielder Charlie Blackmon was back at the top of the order Saturday night against the Padres.
Blackmon sat out Friday against Padres starter Ian Kennedy. DJ LeMahieu, who batted leadoff on Friday, was bumped to the No. 8 in the order.
Blackmon is hitting .290/.330/.432 with two homers and 11 RBI over 21 games.
Colorado is an underdog (+125) Petco Park, per VegasInsider.com.
|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.
