Jordan Pacheco went hitless in three at-bats Friday in the loss to the Diamondbacks.

If Ryan Wheeler were playing better in Triple-A, Pacheco would probably be back in the minors by now. With little home run power and no patience at the plate, he needs to bat .300 to be useful to the Rockies. Right now, he's at .250/.284/.327 in 168 at-bats.

Jordan Pacheco went 2-for-5 with a grand slam and five RBI in Friday's 10-9 win over the Giants.

Pacheco had an RBI ground out in the bottom of the second inning while his fifth-inning grand slam broke a 5-5 tie. With a .313/.360/.410 batting line over 26 games this season, the 27-year-old continues to be a useful player for Colorado. Todd Helton isn't a good bet to hold up and will require regular rest no matter what, so Pacheco should continue to have value in NL-only leagues.
