Struggling Rockies' DJ LeMahieu gets a rest on Thursday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(6:55 pm ET) Rockies second baseman DJ LeMahieu is getting a rest on Thursday, as he is being held out of the starting lineup against the Diamondbacks. LeMahieu had started 34 of the last 35 games for the Rockies, and he's been struggling lately.

Over his last 10 games, LeMahieu is batting a meager .132 (5 for 38). So he'll get a day off on Thursday, with Daniel Descalso getting the start at second base.

Rockies' DJ LeMahieu batting ninth on Tuesday vs. Astros


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(6/16/2015) Rockies second baseman DJ LeMahieu is slotted in the No. 9 spot in the batting order for Tuesday's game against the Astros. LeMahieu is hitless over his last 10 at-bats, so after batting first or second in each of the last 18 games, he'll be at the bottom of the order in Houston.

Despite the mini-slump, LeMahieu is still having a fantastic month at the plate. Through 15 games in June, he owns a .328/.368/.406 slash line with five doubles and five RBI. He has hit safely in all but three of the 15 games this month.

LeMahieu has hit safely in all but one of nine June games. He also has five multihit games this month. He is batting .410 (16 for 39) with three doubles, four RBI, four walks, nine runs and one stolen base in June.

Since his batting average dropped to .315 on May 17, LeMahieu is batting .393 with a .517 slugging percentage and .954 OPS in his last 22 games. His average is back up to .350.

With his team leading by just one run in the fifth, LeMahieu smashed a two-run home run to left field, giving his team a 4-1 lead.

In his last 17 games, LeMahieu is hitting .349 with two home runs and 11 RBI.


Rockies 2B DJ LeMahieu pushes hit streak to 10 games


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com

Rockies 2B DJ LeMahieu trying to break out of slump


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(5/18/2015) 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
(5/11/2015) 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.

by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(5/5/2015) The Rockies will bat pitcher Tyler Matzek in the eighth spot against right-hander Josh Collmenter and the Diamondbacks on Monday while second baseman DJ LeMahieu drops to ninth.

It’s the third time this season that Matzek will hit No. 8 and fifth time Lemahieu is in the nine spot.

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

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
(4/16/2015) 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.

Rockies' Weiss on LeMahieu's hot start: 'Just a matter of time for DJ'


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

"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' Weiss: DJ LeMahieu is going to get better offensively


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/2/2015) Rockies second baseman DJ LeMahieu is hoping the offseason work he put in to increase his speed will pay dividends on offense this season, particularly legging out more extra-base hits, per MLB.com.

"We were doing sprints early in the offseason and by February I was much, much faster," LeMahieu said. "We'll see how that translates, but I accomplished my goal."

Rockies manager Walt Weiss is expecting LeMahieu to improve offensively.

"He's a guy that's going to get better and better offensively," Weiss said. "I've talked about his feel for the game and that's going to play into his offense. You're going to see his on-base [.314 career] creep up. He's going to slug more than he has [.361 career] -- not homers, but there are doubles there."


DJ LeMahieu develops into reliable second baseman for Rockies


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/10/2015) Rockies infielder DJ LeMahieu is expected to be the team's primary second baseman for a third straight year in 2015 after he took home his first Gold Glove award in 2014.

Barring any unforeseen issue, LeMahieu would be the first Rockies player to be the primary second baseman for three consecutive years since Clint Barmes (2008-10).

"That's huge for me -- I want to be that guy, and I want to be out there every single day," LeMahieu said, per MLB.com. "Plus our infield defense is the best in the league. It's fun to be a part of this team."

While LeMahieu is a strong defender, his offense is not quite at the same level. He has just a career .276/.314/.361/.676 slash line.

"I've spent a lot of time this offseason working on being the player that I am, getting better at that, than trying to be the player I'm not," LeMahieu said.
