LeMahieu was pulled from the late innings of Friday's win against the White Sox merely as a rest measure, Nick Groke of The Denver Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

The All-Star second baseman initially missed three games due to the ailment, but lingering effects of the injury sidelined him twice more during the subsequent week. Manager Bud Black insists that LeMahieu's removal was simply for rest, although the nagging groin injury may have played a hand in the move as well. The issue doesn't seem to be anything serious, especially since he's already played numerous games since his initial absence, and it's unlikely that he'll miss any more time with the injury given that the All-Star break will give him a few free days off.

LeMahieu went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run and two runs scored during Friday's win over the White Sox.

EDGE Analysis

After posting a .348 batting average and a .911 OPS last season, LeMahieu has dipped to .308 and .755 marks this year. He's still providing serviceable fantasy numbers with four homers, 41 RBI, four stolen bases and 46 runs, and it shouldn't be a shock that he failed to fully follow up his 2016 breakout. However, a strong second half could be ahead, and LeMahieu also has the Coors Field boost working in his favor.

LeMahieu (groin) will be back in the lineup for Thursday's afternoon game against Cincinnati, Patrick Saunders of the Denver Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

LeMahieu makes his return to the field after missing the past two games, and five of the previous seven while dealing with a groin injury. During the two games in between, the second baseman went 5-for-9 at the plate, and appears good to go after being available to serve as a pinch hitter Wednesday. LeMahieu is back at his normal position while batting second for Thursday's contest.

LeMahieu continues to be nagged by the groin injury that sidelined him over the weekend, Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

Saunders did add that LeMahieu is available to pitch hit if need be, although it seems that the Rockies tried to rush him back into action too quickly. Due to this apparent setback, it wouldn't be too surprising to see the second baseman sit out a couple more games in order to fully heal his ailment. Consider him day-to-day for now, as Alexi Amarista continues to man the keystone in his stead.

LeMahieu is not in the lineup Wednesday against the Reds, Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

This marks the second consecutive contest that "DJ Le" will watch from the bench. It's unclear if this is a result of lingering soreness from the groin cramp that ailed him over the weekend or if this is just a way of easing him back into action. Until LeMahieu is good to go, Alexi Amarista will man the keystone.

EDGE Analysis

LeMahieu will be held out for a third straight game as he continues to nurse a sore groin, though he told Jenny Cavnar of Root Sports Rocky Mountain that he is available to pinch hit if needed, which is a positive sign. He'll remain day-to-day while Alexi Amarista will start in his place at second base for Saturday.

LeMahieu (groin) is out of the lineup for Friday's game against the Diamondbacks, MLB.com's Steve Gilbert reports.

EDGE Analysis

LeMahieu must still be dealing with a sore groin that caused him to exit Tuesday's game and miss the following day's series finale against San Francisco. In his place, Pat Valaika will man the keystone and bat sixth in the order. LeMahieu should still be considered day-to-day and could return for the second game of the series Saturday.
