Raimel Tapia (hand) placed on injured list

The Rockies placed Raimel Tapia (hand) on the 10-day injured list.

Fantasy Impact

Tapia is dealing with a left hand contusion. The injury comes at a bad time as the outfielder has been on a roll since the All-Star break. However, the 25-year-old shouldn't be sidelined long.

Raimel Tapia collects two hits on Wednesday

Raimel Tapia went 2-for-5 with an RBI and a run scored in the Rockies' win over the Diamondbacks on Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact

Tapia is now riding a five-game hitting streak, though he really only becomes a fantasy option when playing in Coors. The Rockies return home next week, so maybe keep an eye on how Tapia is doing.

Raimel Tapia singles twice in loss to Padres

Raimel Tapia went 2-for-4 with two singles in Friday's 7-1 loss to the Padres.

Fantasy Impact

Tapia is now batting .277 with a .761 OPS on the season. He is getting some additional playing time with David Dahl hurt right now but isn't anything more than a depth option for deeper fantasy leagues.

Raimel Tapia hits seventh homer on Monday

Raimel Tapia homered in Game 1 of Monday's doubleheader versus the Giants.

Fantasy Impact

Tapia also got some run in the nightcap and finished with four total hits on the day. The 25-year-old doesn't play enough to be a standard-league option but is worth starting in daily formats whenever he's in the lineup and playing at home.

Raimel Tapia collects four hits in Thursday's slugfest

Raimel Tapia went 4-for-5 with a double and an RBI as the Rockies fell to the Dodgers 12-8 on Thursday night.

Fantasy Impact

Tapia was receiving some everyday playing time when Charlie Blackmon was hurt, but has since gone back to being a bench player. That means his value is mainly tied to DFS when he's in the lineup and playing at home.
