LeMahieu agreed to a one-year, $8.5 million contract with the Rockies on Friday, avoiding arbitration, Jon Heyman of FanRagSports.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

LeMahieu earned a significant raise (from $4.8 million) by batting .310 with a .374 OBP in 155 games with Colorado in 2017. Unfortunately, his ISO fell back below .100 last season as the 29-year-old drove the ball into the ground 55.6 percent of the time. Ideally, he'd add some power to his game before hitting the open market next winter.

LeMahieu went 3-for-5 with a pair of solo homers Saturday against the Braves.

LeMahieu was scratched from Sunday's lineup against the Phillies with bruised triceps, Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

LeMahieu was originally penciled in to start at second base and bat second during Sunday's game, but he's been scratched from the lineup with an apparent tricep injury. He'll be replaced by Alexi Amarista at the keystone and will be day-to-day case for the time being. The Rockies are off on Monday before opening up a two-game series against the Indians on Tuesday.

LeMahieu is not in the lineup for the second game of Sunday's doubleheader with the Nationals.

EDGE Analysis

LeMahieu bashed a pair of doubles in the game one victory, so manager Bud Black will reward him with a night off in the nightcap. Alexi Amarista will replace him at second base.

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.
