by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Justin Morneau, DJ LeMahieu back at it Tuesday


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(8/19/2014) Rockies first baseman Justin Morneau (neck) and infielder DJ LeMahieu are both back in the lineup Tuesday against the Royals.

Morneau had missed the team's previous two games as a result of his injury, but is batting third and starting at first base for his return. LeMahieu had missed just the one game, and is batting eighth and playing second base Tuesday.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(8/17/2014) Rockies first baseman Justin Morneau (neck) and infielder DJ LeMahieu (ankle) were held out of the starting lineup Sunday against the Reds. Morneau missed a second straight game, while LeMahieu sat out his first game.

DJ LeMahieu dealing with sore ankle


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(8/17/2014) Rockies second baseman DJ LeMahieu is dealing with a sore ankle stemming from a takeout slide in Friday's game, MLB.com reports.

Saturday's game between the Rockies and Reds was postponed, but LeMahieu wasn't expected to play. He could miss both games of the doubleheader Sunday in order to give him three straight days to rest the injury. He has hit just .190 over the last four weeks while striking out 26 times in 91 at-bats.


DJ LeMahieu smacks fourth home run Wednesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(8/13/2014) Rockies second baseman DJ LeMahieu went 2 for 4 with a solo home run in his team's 5-3 loss to the Padres Wednesday.

LeMahieu was 0 for 10 in his last three games before breaking through Wednesday. His last extra-base hit came back on July 25, while his last home run was all the way back on July 1. LeMahieu has hit .264/.318/.339 with four home runs, 30 RBI and eight stolen bases in 375 at-bats.


DJ LeMahieu takes six-game hitting streak into second half


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/16/2014) Rockies second baseman DJ LeMahieu entered the All-Star break with a six-game hitting streak intact after going 2 for 4 with a double in Sunday's first-half finale against the Twins.

LeMahieu never posted a batting average lower than .314 over a full minor-league season, and while he has yet to reach that level in the big leagues, he has posted batting averages of .280 or better in each of his first three seasons with at least 200 at-bats. That ability to scratch out hits doesn't come with much power though, as is evidenced by LeMahieu's .283/.339/.352 line at the break. His stolen-base success rate has fallen this season, as he's managed to record just eight steals in 15 attempts after successfully nabbing 18 bases in 25 attempts last season.


DJ LeMahieu slugs third home run Tuesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/1/2014) Rockies infielder DJ LeMahieu went 1 for 3 with a solo home run in his team's 7-1 loss to the Nationals Tuesday.

LeMahieu's eighth-inning blast was the only offense the Rockies could muster in the face of a dominant effort by Stephen Strasburg. The infielder owns a seven-game hitting streak, and he has hit .272/.333/.346 with three home runs, 24 RBI and eight stolen bases in 257 at-bats.


DJ LeMahieu drives in two in loss


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(6/29/2014) The Rockies got some rare run production from infielder DJ LeMahieu Saturday, in a 7-4 loss to the Brewers.

LeMahieu drove in two runs in the game, his first multi-RBI game since April 9. He went 2 for 4 with two RBI and one run scored in the loss.

LeMahieu is hitting .269/.333/.335 in 77 games for the Rockies on the season.  


DJ LeMahieu hits first home run in loss Wednesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/28/2014) Rockies infielder DJ LeMahieu went 1 for 5 with his first home run of the season in his team's 6-3 loss to the Phillies Wednesday.

LeMahieu wasj ust 1 for 17 in his last six games going into Wednesday's contest, and even with the home run he's 3 for 29 over his last nine. The homer was his first since August 12 of last season. LeMahieu has hit .269/.326/.331 with 13 RBI in 160 at-bats.


DJ LeMahieu reaches four times in win


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(5/8/2014) The Rockies got a strong performance from the No. 9 spot in the batting order Wednesday, as DJ LeMahieu went 3 for 3 in a 9-2 win over the Rangers.

LeMahieu, who had just three hits in his previous seven games, had a pair of singles and one triple in three at-bats Wednesday. He also closed the game out with a hit-by-pitch, reaching base all four times and scoring twice, while driving in one run.

LeMahieu is now hitting .294/.365/.353 in 102 at-bats on the season. 


DJ LeMahieu drives in three runs in three-hit game Wednesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/9/2014) Rockies second baseman DJ LeMahieu went 3 for 4 with two runs, three RBI and his first stolen base of the season in his team's 10-4 win over the White Sox Wednesday.

LeMahieu smacked an RBI double in the sixth inning and drove two more home with a single in the eighth. He has hit .286/.364/.321 with six RBI in 28 at-bats.


DJ LeMahieu a candidate to hit leadoff


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(2/18/2014) Rockies second baseman DJ LeMahieu is a candidate to hit leadoff this season, according to the Denver Post.

LeMahieu is expected to compete for the second base job, but is currently the leading candidate at the position. With Dexter Fowler traded during the offseason, the club is looking for a new leadoff man.

While Walt Weiss knows LeMahieu may not be the ideal candidate now, he knows there's still room for some growth in LeMahieu's game. "His on-base percentage may not be prototypical of a leadoff guy," Weiss said. "But I think that's going to develop because he has such great instincts for the game."

LeMahieu hit .280/.311/.361 in 404 at-bats last year.


DJ LeMahieu atop depth chart at second base for Rockies


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/13/2014) Although the Rockies are hoping for a bounce-back season from Josh Rutledge, the team is heading into spring training with DJ LeMahieu atop the depth chart at second base, according to MLB.com.

"DJ has put himself in a good position," Colorado manager Walt Weiss said. "DJ played well enough to earn the right to come into camp No. 1 on the depth chart.

"The sign of a great defender is he is able to make the majority of the plays look routine. That's DJ's strength. He goes unnoticed, but he makes a lot of plays -- difficult plays to his left and right -- and makes them look routine."


DJ LeMahieu homers, steals base in three-hit performance


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(8/13/2013) Rockies infielder DJ LeMahieu turned in a big performance in his team's 14-2 win over the Padres Monday, going 3 for 4 with one walk, one home run, two RBI, three runs and a stolen base.

It was LeMahieu's second three-hit performance in his last four games and his third three-hit game in August, raising his line to .275/.314/.370 with two home runs, 18 RBI and 14 stolen bases in 265 at-bats.


DJ LeMahieu has second August three-hit game


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(8/8/2013) Rockies second baseman DJ LeMahieu singled three times in four at-bats Thursday against the Mets. It was his second three-hit game of August.

LeMahieu is batting .296 (8 for 27) with two doubles and no RBI in seven August games.


DJ LeMahieu in the mix as a second base option


by Al Melchior | Data Analyst
(6/26/2013) When DJ LeMahieu inherited the starting job at second base for the Rockies just over a month ago, I doubted he could hold down a regular role. With Josh Rutledge back with the club and filling in at shortstop while Troy Tulowitzki (rib) is on the disabled list, it may still seem like only a matter of time before LeMahieu gets squeezed out of the lineup, particularly when Tulowitzki returns.

Not only is Rutledge struggling, but LeMahieu is making a strong case to hold down the keystone position. Just as he's done in the minors, LeMahieu is hitting for average, batting .291, and he's made good on all nine of his stolen base attempts. There's actually room for LeMahieu to improve his batting average, as he is striking out at a much higher rate than he had in the minors. Meanwhile, he rarely pops out and uses his speed to maintain a high batting average on balls in play. LeMahieu could actually maintain his .351 BABIP and inch his batting average above .300.

Over the last 28 days, LeMahieu ranks 11th among second basemen in standard Rotisserie and Head-to-Head value. Though he doesn't walk or homer much, LeMahieu can continue to help enough with average and steals to be worth starting in far more than 18 percent of the Fantasy leagues on CBSSports.com.


DJ LeMahieu leads Rockies to win


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(6/22/2013) Rockies infielder DJ LeMahieu had his third multi-hit game in a row Saturday in a 7-1 win over the Nationals.

LeMahieu went 3 for 5 with his first home run in the first inning. LeMahieu drove in two runs and scored one while extending his hitting streak to five games. 

LeMahieu has nine hits over his last five games, raising his batting average from .267 to .299.


Rockies could use DJ Lemahieu at shortstop


by Jack Moore | CBSSports.com
(6/14/2013) The Rockies could use second baseman DJ LeMahieu at shortstop in the wake of Troy Tulowitzki's rib injury, the Denver Post reports.

Although the Rockies have called up Josh Rutledge, who played shortstop last season when Tulowitzki was hurt, LeMahieu played shortstop every day at Triple-A Colorado Springs before coming up to play second base this season. Both LeMahieu and Rutledge have extensive professional experience at both middle infield positions, so the Rockies can use whatever middle infield deployment they (or the players) feel most comfortable with.


DJ LeMahieu records seventh steal


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6/13/2013) Rockies second baseman DJ LeMahieu went 1 for 4 and stolen his seventh base of the season in Thursday's game aginast the Nationals.

LeMahieu has put a slow start to June behind him to collect seven hits in 19 at-bats over his last seven games, giving him a .266 batting average in 79 at-bats this season.


DJ LeMahieu lacking power in early going.


by Jack Moore | CBSSports.com
(5/31/2013) Rockies second baseman DJ LeMahieu is without a home run in his first 14 games with Colorado.

Lemahieu is hitting .275 with a .356 on-base percentage, but he has only two extra-base hits in 40 at-bats, both doubles. LeMahieu has just a .409 career slugging percentage, including .411 in three seasons at the power-heavy Triple-A Pacific Coast League, so even with the effects of Coors Field, big power likely isn't coming.


DJ LeMahieu is a nice deep league add


by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/23/2013) With the Rockies demoting Josh Rutledge on Wednesday, DJ LeMahieu is expected to take over the starting second base job. Owned in six percent of leagues, it might benefit an owner in a deeper format to take a closer look at the 24-year-old. 

LeMahieu has never hit below .314 in any of his five minor league campaigns (he has a .321 career minor league BA). In 306 major league at-bats, he has a .294 average. I wouldn't expect much in the way of power or speed from LeMahieu, but 20 doubles the rest of the way (assuming he gets regular at-bats) wouldn't be out of the question, and you can pretty much bank on the average to be there. 

In NL-only, he's a must-add. But I would consider adding him in formats as shallow as 15-team Roto leagues (at MI or UT), based on his promise in batting average. 


DJ LeMahieu looking at increased playing time


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(5/22/2013) With Josh Rutledge's demotion to Triple-A Wednesday, Rockies infielder DJ LeMahieu is expected to assume a starting role.

LeMahieu has started four of seven games since being called up May 16, and he is hitting .412 with two extra-base hits and two RBI in 17 at-bats. He will likely be the full-time starter at second base with Rutledge gone. 


DJ Lemahieu records 3 hits


by Jack Moore | CBSSports.com
(5/22/2013) Rockies second baseman DJ Lemahieu went 3 for 4 in Tuesday's win over Arizona.

Lemahieu doubled twice and knocked in two runs. He's 6 for 13 to open 2013 for the Rockies and is proving to be a solid backup to primary second baseman Josh Rutledge.


Rockies promote DJ LeMahieu from Triple-A


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(5/16/2013) The Rockies recalled infielder DJ LeMahieu from Triple-A Colorado Springs prior to Thursday's game against the Giants. LeMahieu will available to play.

LeMahieu hit .364 with one home run and 22 RBI in 143 at-bats before being promoted.

DJ LeMahieu excelling at Triple-A


by Ed Gauna | CBSSports.com
(5/14/2013) The Rockies sent DJ LeMahieu to the minors at the end of spring training in order for the 24-year-old to see regular playing time at shortstop. The club views him as an insurance policy in case Troy Tulowitzki gets injured, MLB.com reports.

LeMahieu has batted .360 with one homer, 22 RBI and a .511 slugging percentage in 32 games for Triple-A Colorado Springs.

"He's a big league player," Rockies manager Walt Weiss said Tuesday. "He's handled it well, it sounds like. He's showing that he can play there, too."
