D.J. LeMahieu singled in the go-ahead run in the ninth Friday in the Rockies' 7-4 win over the Giants.
LeMahieu's single came after pinch-hitter Ryan Wheeler delivered a two-run single to tie the game. It was LeMahieu's lone hit in four at-bats. In fact, he's hitting just .189 in 37 at-bats this month. The Rockies are mostly playing him for his defense at second base.

D.J. LeMahieu went 1-for-5 with a solo home run in Wednesday's loss to the Phillies.
LeMahieu bashed a solo home run off of Jake Diekman in the eighth inning, breaking a 2-2 tie. Power isn't his forte, so it's no surprise that it was his first dinger of the season. LeMahieu is slashing .269/.326/.331 on the season.

D.J. LeMahieu went 3-for-3 with a triple and two runs scored from the ninth spot in the Colorado lineup on Wednesday.
LeMahieu is hitting a mere .294, which practically makes him a drag on the Rockies offense. He's never going to hit for much in the way of power, but that everyone else on the Rockies is playing so well has pulled up his fantasy value a bit by giving him additional chances to score and drive in runs.

Rockies manager Walt Weiss considers D.J. LeMahieu a candidate to hit leadoff.
"His on-base percentage may not be prototypical of a leadoff guy," said Weiss. "But I think that's going to develop because he has such great instincts for the game. That's going to be part of his game you will see him improve on." LeMahieu, 25, hit .280/.311/.361 with two home runs, 28 RBI and 18 stolen bases in 109 games last season. Drew Stubbs and Corey Dickerson are the other options to hit leadoff, possibly as part of a platoon.

Troy Renck of the Denver Post believes that D.J. LeMahieu, not Josh Rutledge, will open the 2014 season as the Rockies starting second baseman.
Renck also believes that LeMahieu could hit second in the Rockies lineup, which would certainly boost his counting stats. The 25-year-old had a solid season at the dish in 2013, slashing .280/.311/.361 with a pair of homers, 28 RBI and 18 stolen bases in 109 games. He's certainly worthy of consideration as a middle infielder in NL-only and deeper mixed leagues.

D.J. LeMahieu is currently riding a 12-game hitting streak.
He went 1-for-3 on Tuesday to extend his streak. LeMahieu is batting .388 during that stretch. He'll continue to be an underrated NL-only player due to his average (.286) and speed (17 steals in 98 games).

D.J. LeMahieu finished 3-for-4 with a double, home run, walk, steal, two RBI and three runs scored against the Padres on Monday.
It was LeMahieu's first home run since June 22, his first double since August 1, the first game he's logged multiple RBI since July 3 and the first time he has scored three runs all season. LeMahieu's no-power offensive skill set doesn't make him a valuable option in mixed leagues, but NL-only appreciate his .275 batting average and 14 steals over 265 at-bats.

D.J. LaMahieu had a rough night at the dish in Saturday's loss to the Dodgers, going 0-for-4 with a strikeout.
LeMahieu drew another start at second base, but isn't running away with the job in the manner that the Rockies had hoped he would. The 25-year-old is hitting .271/.321/.356 with a homer and 11 stolen bases in 52 games on the season. He remains merely a fringe middle infield option in mixed leagues.

D.J. LeMahieu went hitless in a fourth straight game Tuesday against the Padres.
The 0-for-17 has dropped his average from .295 to .262. It's bad timing for him with Troy Tulowitzki set to return, but it's not as though Josh Rutledge is taking advantage. LeMahieu will probably keep the second base job for a while longer. However, since doesn't do much more than his singles and the occasional double, he needs to keep his average up to be a useful player. In 163 at-bats for the Rockies, he has just one homer, 12 runs scored, 11 RBI and 11 walks.
