Competitive Edge Analysis

LeMahieu's injury does not appear to be serious, but he is sitting out Monday in order to prevent the soreness from becoming anything more than that. LeMahieu should have a chance to return to action Tuesday, but the Rockies may opt to hold him out again if he is still not 100 percent.

LeMahieu is not in the lineup Monday against the Reds, Zach Buchanan of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

This is the second time in three days that LeMahieu has taken a seat. It's unclear if the cause of the day off is the hamstring tightness that was ailing him Saturday, but the situation should become clearer soon.

LeMahieu is hitting leadoff Thursday against the Giants.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Charlie Blackmon is getting the day off Thursday, so LeMahieu moves atop the order. A Rockies stack against righty Matt Cain makes a lot of sense in daily leagues Thursday, although it might be wiser to target the middle of the order, where lefties like Carlos Gonzalez and Gerardo Parra reside Thursday.

LeMahieu will lead off Saturday against the Padres.

Competitive Edge Analysis

LeMahieu dropped to eighth in the order Friday, but with the Padres turning to lefty Drew Pomeranz on the bump Saturday, the talented second baseman will hit atop the order. This could be the start of a trend for LeMahieu and the Rockies as he led it off Wednesday against Arizona southpaw Patrick Corbin. Regardless of who he has faced this season, LeMahieu has been able to collect hits at a greedy rate with four multi-hit games in a row to start the year. He's slashing .571/.571/1.071 through four games.

Competitive Edge Analysis

LeMahieu batted out of the leadoff spot for Wednesday's game against the Diamondbacks and answered the bell by going 2-for-4 with a home run and two runs. However, with Charlie Blackmon back in the top spot Friday, LeMahieu will slide back down to the bottom third of the order. He'll be facing San Diego right-hander Colin Rea.
