by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/19/2015) 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.

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.

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
(4/15/2015) 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."

"He might have got star of the series award," Cubs manager Joe Maddon said, via MLB.com. "He was really good."

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

The full Rockies lineup for Opening Day: CF Charlie Blackmon, RF Gonzalez, SS Troy Tulowitzki, 1B Justin Morneau, 3B Nolan Arenado, LF Corey Dickerson, C Nick Hundley, 2B DJ LeMahieu, SP Kyle Kendrick.


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.

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 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."
