The veteran slugger is apparently no worse for wear, smacking his second and third doubles over the last two games. Gonzalez's stellar season has only gotten beter in June, a month in which he's slashed .321/.367/.595, and driven in 17 runs.
Recalled from Triple-A just a little over a week ago, Barnes provided his second multi-hit effort of the season, and first since his most recent call-up. Filling in for Gerardo Parra (ankle) while the latter is on the DL, the 30-year-old is slashing .263/.300/.316 over 19 at-bats since returning to the big leagues.
Manager Pete Mackanin seems to already be considering a position change for Herrera, who took fly balls in right field before Saturday's game. Bourjos has regained regular playing time of late and has capitalized on his opportunity. He has started five straight games, going 8-for-18 with a triple, a home run and four RBI.
The Rockies second baseman sent a 424-foot shot to center with Mark Reynolds and Charlie Blackmon aboard to put the finishing touches on a memorable day for the Colorado offense. LeMahieu has been on a tear, tallying three straight multi-hit efforts, as well as five in his last six games. As good as his month of May was, he's been even better in June, now slashing .349/.424/.570 over 86 at-bats.
The Rockies backstop was an unlikely source of offensive production, bringing home Daniel Descalso and Brandon Barnes in the fourth with a two-bagger, and providing a 432-foot two-run shot as an encore in the sixth. The round-tripper was the first of the sason for the 24-year-old Wolters, who's platooned with Nick Hundley this season against some right-handed pitching. The production Saturday brought his season line to .217/.303/.321 over 106 at-bats.
Manager Pete Mackanin is hoping Ruiz can help Nola turn things around after going 0-3 with a 15.83 ERA over his last three starts. If Nola has success it might help Ruiz pick up some additional playing time as he would likely be paired up with Nola moving forward. He has also recently become Jared Eickhoff's personal catcher.
The D-backs backstop continues to generate solid offensive numbers, with Saturday's production representing his sixth multi-hit effort of June. Castillo has built a solid .288/.333/.390 line over 59 June at-bats, and has formed a largely effective platoon with Chris Hermann this season.
The veteran took Rockies reliever Justin Miller deep in the seventh for only his second homer of 2016, plating Jean Segura in the process. It was the 33-year-old's second consecutive multi-hit effort, and the three RBI brought his June total to nine. Despite the recent success, Bourn has largely struggled in June, particularly when compared to the .343/.425/.457 line he generated in May. Those numbers have dropped to .208/.312/.565, respectively, in the current month, but Bourn still provides some decent fantasy potential given his typical spot near the top of the lineup.
The veteran third baseman had been in the midst of a rare slump entering Saturday, having gone 2-for-21 over the previous six games. Prado bounced back with his eighth multi-hit game of June, and first such effort since June 14. Despite the recent struggles, his season line sits at a stellar .314/.362/.404.
Don't look now, but the Marlins slugger is finally showing some signs of life. He's recorded multi-hit efforts in five of his last eight games, and has a pair of homers and eight RBI over that span as well. Considering he was hitting .192 as recently as June 12, even Stanton's current .219/.319/.443 line is cause of optimism.
