  • Charlie Blackmon Won't Play This Weekend

    Colorado Rockies outfielder Charlie Blackmon (back) is still dealing with a sore back and won't play in Cactus League games this weekend. It's starting to become a concern for Blackmon, as he's already missed a week of spring games due to the injury. There's still time for him to return and get himself ready for Opening Day at the end of this month, but he's starting to run out of time. The 36-year-old left-handed hitter's fantasy stock is on the decline as he heads into his 13th MLB season for the Rockies. He hit .264/.314/.419 with a .733 OPS, 16 home runs, 78 RBI, 60 runs scored and four stolen bases in 577 plate appearances and 135 games in 2022. At this point, Blackmon is becoming a streamer for when he plays his home games at hitter-friendly Coors Field.

  • Charlie Blackmon In No Rush To Return

    Colorado Rockies outfielderCharlie Blackmon(back) is improving after sustaining a back injury on Friday. Blackmon was removed in the first inning of Friday's game against the San Francisco Giants, which was ruled as back stiffness. Manager Bud Black added that the Rockies are in no rush to reinstate Blackmon as Opening Day approaches. The 36-year-old is expected to see a lot of DH opportunities to begin the season as a precaution to complete the recovery process. As the year progresses, he will slowly return to the outfield. Blackmon slashed .264/.314/.419 with a .733 OPS this past season. He smacked 16 home runs as well as a .317 wOBA. Barring any setbacks, the Rockies hope that Blackmon continues to contribute from an offensive standpoint.

  • Charlie Blackmon Exits Early On Friday

    Colorado Rockies outfielder Charlie Blackmon (back) was forced to exit early during Friday's Spring Training contest. Luckily, the veteran outfielder says he's fine and dealing with some back stiffness. It sounds like Blackmon is day-to-day, but has avoided any serious injuries. The 36-year-old should still have a little left in the tank after another decent season in Colorado last year. The left-handed slugger should be able to provide decent fantasy value as long as he can stay healthy.
