The breakout appeared to be arriving a year later than anticipated for McMahon, who made the Rockies' Opening Day lineup after hitting .424 with nine doubles and three homers in spring. An elbow injury, however, sent him to the IL in early April. He homered in his return, but then tumbled into the Rockies promoted uber prospect Brendan Rodgers. Although McMahon is hitting an unexciting .264/.343/.439 with just 13 home runs and four steals, he should keep playing with Rodgers out for the season. Keep him in mind as a streamer when the Rockies are home.

McMahon has loads of upside seeing that he plays in Coors, has power and some speed. Now, it hasn't shown yet, and the playing time hasn't been consistent, but he is a classic post-hype sleeper to have a huge second half for fantasy owners.

McMahon has Coors Field working in his favor, but that simply hasn't been enough to make him a fantasy factor through his first couple stints in the Big Leagues. He has nothing left to prove at Triple-A, but is starting to have the look of the classic Quad-A player.
