Colorado Rockies

NL West

Tim Melville fell to 2-3 on Tuesday versus the Mets, giving up four runs on six hits over 5 2/3 innings.

Fantasy Impact: Melville now has a 5.40 ERA through six starts this season and won't be an exciting fantasy option for his next start against the Giants.

Charlie Blackmon went 2-for-3 with a homer and a walk in the Rockies' 6-1 loss to the Mets on Tuesday evening.

Fantasy Impact: Blackmon has once again been a fantasy start this season, particularly at home. In 62 games at Coors Field he has hit .391/448/.760 with 20 homers. Obviously his numbers outside of Coors aren't as strong, but it all evens out to Blackmon being a dynamic fantasy asset.

Trevor Story went 1-for-4 with a three-run homer and a walk in Monday's 9-4 win over the Mets.

Fantasy Impact: Story now has 33 homers and 20 steals this season, which will likely make him a first-round fantasy pick come 2020. Current fantasy owners should expect a strong finish from the budding superstar.

Garrett Hampson went 3-for-4 with two RBI and a run scored on Monday versus the Mets.

Fantasy Impact: Hampson is now 11-for-22 with a homer and a steal over his past five games. If fantasy players are desperate for offense this week they might want to pick him up and see how long the hot streak lasts.

Daniel Murphy went 4-for-5 with a double, four RBI, and a run scored in the Rockies' 11-10 win over the Padres on Saturday night.

Fantasy Impact: This is the kind of performance fantasy owners were hoping for when using a mid-round selection on Murphy back in the spring. Unfortunately, he under-performed for much of the season. He's batting .286 with an .807 OPS this year and maybe he'll finish the season strong.

Jeff Hoffman earned the win on Friday versus San Diego, allowing four runs on four hits over 5 1/3 innings.

Fantasy Impact: Hoffman issued six walks and also struck out four. He now owns a 7.03 ERA on the season and isn't a recommended fantasy option.

Jairo Diaz earned yet another save on Friday against the Padres, tossing a scoreless ninth to pick up his fourth of the season.

Fantasy Impact: Diaz now has three saves over the last four days and looks like Colorado's locked-in closer the rest of the way. Pick him up if you need saves.

Nolan Arenado went 2-for-4 with a homer, a double, a walk, and two RBI as the Rockies fell to the Cardinals 10-3 on Thursday.

Fantasy Impact: Arenado is enjoying a strong finish to the 2019 season, which should delight fantasy owners still in the playoffs. Overall for the year he is batting .313 with 39 homers and a .963 OPS. He'll once again be an easy first-round selection in 2020 fantasy drafts.

Ian Desmond hit a solo homer in the Rockies' 2-1 win over the Cardinals on Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact: This game didn't include the usual offensive explosions we tend to see from Coors Field, but Desmond at least delivered for those streaming him this week. He is batting .257 with 17 homers this season and is worth starting whenever the Rockies play at home.

Antonio Senzatela earned the win on Wednesday versus St. Louis, tossing six innings of one-run ball and allowing just four hits.

Fantasy Impact: Senzatela struck out five and walked two in the outing, which the Rockies went on to win 2-1. The 24-year-old had been getting absolutely shelled lately, so this performance truly came out of nowhere. He won't be a recommended fantasy option for his next outing versus the Mets.

Chi Chi Gonzalez earned the win on Tuesday versus St. Louis, allowing just one run on four hits over six innings pitched.

Fantasy Impact: Gonzalez struck out four and didn't walk anyone. He has now allowed just three earned runs over his last two starts (12 1/3 innings). However, he was lit up for seven runs in the start before that. He'll continue to be an unreliable fantasy starter down the stretch.

Peter Lambert received a no-decision on Sunday in San Diego, allowing just one run on five hits over five innings.

Fantasy Impact: Lambert struck out four and walked three as the Rockies went on to lose in 10 innings. The rookie now owns a 6.86 ERA on the year and cannot be trusted for fantasy purposes moving forward.

Ryan McMahon went 1-for-4 with a solo homer in Saturday's 11-4 loss to the Pirates.

Fantasy Impact: It has been another successful home stand for the infielder, who has two homers and seven RBI over the last six games. He remains worth starting in fantasy whenever the Rockies play in Coors.

Sam Hilliard went 2-for-4 with a two-run shot in a losing effort at home against the Bucs on Thursday.

Fantasy Impact: Hilliard now has two big league homers in his first eight at-bats. Given that he hit .262/.335/.558 with 109 runs scored, 35 home runs, 101 RBI and 22 stolen bases at Triple A Albuquerque prior to his promotion, he is definitely worth a pick-up if you're looking for a possible offensive spark plug. He plays his next four games at Coors Field.

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

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.

The Rockies placed German Marquez on the 10-day IL with right arm inflammation. (Source: Rockies PR on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Marquez was apparently dealing with the issue in his last start versus the Cardinals. The 24-year-old hasn't been as good this season as he was last year, registering a 4.76 ERA through 28 starts. It's unclear how long he will be sidelined for.

Kyle Freeland was placed on the 10-day injured list Thursday with a left groin strain. (Source: Colorado Rockies PR on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Freeland is eligible to return September 1st, but it is unknown how much time he will need to recover. The Rockies rotation continues to be decimated by injuries. Look for Antonio Senzatela or Jeff Hoffman to replace him for Sunday’s start against the Cardinals.

Jon Gray (foot) was placed on the 60-day injured list Wednesday with a foot fracture. (Source: Colorado Rockies PR on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: It’s unclear when Gray suffered the injury, but he will miss the remainder of the season. Gray will end the season finishing with a 3.84 ERA, 1.35 WHIP, and 150:56 K:BB through 150 innings. Tim Melville was called up from the minors in a corresponding move.

Scott Oberg was placed on the 10-day injured list Sunday with a blood clot in his right arm. (Source: Colorado Rockies PR on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: The official diagnosis is axillary artery thrombosis. This is the second time Oberg has dealt with this issue. He dealt with it back in 2016. It is unclear how long Oberg will be sidelined with the condition, but expect some combination of Carlos Estevez, Wade Davis and Jake McGee figure to share the closing duties in the short term.

David Dahl injured his ankle on a flyball to center field and needed to be carted off the field on Friday night against the Giants. (Source: Patrick Saunders on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Dahl was in serious pain after the injury and even if his season isn't over with a broken ankle, it seems highly unlikely that he will be able to play anytime soon. Wait for official word on his diagnosis before taking any drastic action but, as a Dahl owner, it would make sense to start planning for a replacement. Garrett Hampson and Raimel Tapia could see additional playing time in Dahl's absence.
