Rockies outfielder Charlie Blackmon working on plate discipline


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(3/15/2015) Rockies outfielder Charlie Blackmon is struggling at the plate this spring, going just 1 for 8 so far. Even though he missed Wednesday's game with an abdominal injury, Blackmon wants to show more discipline at the plate and wait on pitches, reports MLB.com.

"I'm trying to see a lot of pitches," Blackmon said. "The other day, I took a 2-0 pitch on purpose [Friday while facing White Sox pitcher Jose Quintana, against whom he singled earlier in the game]. I want to be comfortable hitting later in the count, deeper in the count, with more strikes. In the season, if I get a 2-0 pitch over the plate, I'm going to try to hit it real hard. I'm not going to be trying to extend the at-bat."

(3/11/2015) Rockies outfielder Charlie Blackmon, who has been slowed by an abdominal injury, will make his spring debut Wednesday against the Mariners, per The Denver Post.

Rockies' Charlie Blackmon still on pace for mid-week game


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(3/9/2015) Rockies right fielder Charlie Blackmon is still expecting to make his Cactus League debut this week. 

"I'm going to try to get all facets of my game sharp in spring training," Blackmon said, per MLB.com. "I expect to run a little bit — open up the playbook a little."

Blackmon has been dealing with abdominal injury that has kept him from playing thus far. 

A year ago, Blackmon hit .288 with 19 home runs and 72 RBI.


Charlie Blackmon to return to Rockies' lineup within days


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(3/8/2015) Rockies manager Walt Weiss said that Charlie Blackmon will be able to maek his spring debut within a couple days.

Rockies' Charlie Blackmon hoping for more consistency


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(3/6/2015) Rockies outfielder Charlie Blackmon is hoping for more consistency in 2015, according to the Denver Post

Blackmon had a breakout season in 2014, but admits it's hard to be on every single game. "Last year, I swung the bat really well at certain times," he said. "But you go through a lot of ups and downs over 162 games, and that was a learning experience. I think that's going to help me this year."

Blackmon said his strong start made him a target for other teams, and that may have contributed to a slight slump during the season. Blackmon added that he's hoping to hit the ball to all fields this season.

Manager Walt Weiss is hoping Blackmon can deliver more of the same. "I don't know if he necessarily has to have an encore. I'm thinking more of the same," Weiss said. "I think Charlie would say that he wants to be more consistent."

The 28-year-old Blackmon hit .288/.335/.440 over 593 at-bats last year.

Report: Rockies shopping Charlie Blackmon for pitching depth


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(1/17/2015) Rockies have included outfielder Charlie Blackmon in trade talks with multiple teams in hopes of adding pitching depth, reports FOX Sports on Saturday. 

According to the report, the Rockies are having trouble attracting pitchers to pitch at Coors Field, which explains why they haven't signed a pitcher this offseason. The Mets could be a match since they're looking to unload Dillon Gee, but they would have to offer more than just Gee in order to complete the trade.

Blackmon made the All-Star team for the first time in his career last year. The 28-year-old hit .288/.335/.440 with 19 home runs and 72 RBI in 648 plate appearances in 2014. He's not arbitration eligible until 2016.

He has hit .306/.352/.483 with 14 home runs, 51 RBI and 17 stolen bases in 346 at-bats.


Don't do anything crazy with Charlie Blackmon


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/9/2014) If you own Charlie Blackmon in Fantasy Baseball, you've probably been disappointed with his performance since about mid-April. The regression was inevitable. He performed like the best player in baseball for the first six weeks and is clearly not the best player in baseball.

But he's also not as bad as he's shown the last eight weeks. Assuming he is -- and acting on that assumption -- would be even more short-sighted than whatever move you made to get him in the first place.

Blackmon has maintained a high contact rate throughout his struggles, striking out about once every six at-bats over his last 52 games, making his current .294 batting average pretty easy to buy. It was up in the .380 range before and, again, too good to be true, but now that it's regressed to this point, you could argue he's due for a resurgence of sorts. And what do you know? With his solo shot Wednesday, he's now homered in back-to-back games.

He also had this to offer after homering in Tuesday's game: "I just kind of felt like I got into maybe some bad habits. That kept me from being simple and direct to the ball. I've simplified things a little bit lately."

Individual statistics tend to normalize over the time. A player may not always take the most direct route to them, but in the end, they usually turn out like you'd expect them to. If we assume Blackmon is back to playing within himself, as both his recent comments and performance suggest, then we can hope for steadier production to close out the season rather than the extreme ups and downs of the first eight weeks.

Because combining the ups with the downs, he's still the ninth-best oufeidler in Head-to-Head points leagues. You'd give up the extreme highs of the first six weeks for that kind of production year-round.


Charlie Blackmon swats 14th home run Wednesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/9/2014) Rockies outfielder Charlie Blackmon set the pace for his offense Wednesday, hitting a home run to lead off the top of the first inning in his team's 6-3 win over the Padres.

Blackmon's home run was the first of five in the game for the Rockies, who scored all six of their runs on the five blasts. He finished the game 2 for 4 and has now hit .294/.342/.475 with 14 home runs, 50 RBI and 16 stolen bases in 337 at-bats.


Charlie Blackmon's homer wins it for Rockies


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Charlie Blackmon explodes in romp over Braves


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Not time yet to give up on Charlie Blackmon


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(5/29/2014) I've been getting a lot of questions lately asking if it's time to drop Rockies outfielder Charlie Blackmon, who is mired in a 10-for-50 slump in his last 15 games. While I did drop Blackmon in the outfielder rankings, I'm not ready to throw in the towel.

You had to expect a market correction was coming because Blackmon was hitting .355 with a .603 slugging percentage as of May 10. His numbers weren't going to stay that high all season, so we shouldn't hit the panic button at the first sign of adversity. 

Blackmon was pretty good down the stretch in 2013. He hit .316 with a .500 slugging percentage and .850 OPS in August and a .343 average, .500 slugging percentage and .866 OPS in September/October. I envision Blackmon being good enough to produce his August slash line from last season, which is right where his numbers are this season (.314/.513/.867) after his recent slide.

I know Blackmon has found himself on the bench recently when a left-handed starter is on the hill, which doesn't help his overall Fantasy value. But I'm willing to give him a few more weeks to turn it around before many any drastic roster decisions.
