SWIPE RIGHT ON THESE ROCKIES
DJ LeMahieu. What a difference a week makes! LeMahieu is 7-for-20 over the last week after he wound up on the next slide last week, but, he’s had no extra base hits and has struck out five times against one walk, so it ain’t all good. But he’s an All Star!
Troy Tulowitzki. Maybe-kinda-sorta-might-be-an-All-Star Troy Tulowitzki has been hot this week, too, going 6-for-19 with a double and a home run over his last five games. Now, all you have to do is vote #Tulo over the next two days, you guys.
Charlie Blackmon. 8-for-23 with two doubles, a homer, two walks, and just two strikeouts, Blackmon is quietly putting together a nice season at the top of the Rockies’ order, being overshadowed by LeMahieu, Nolan Arenado, and Tulo.
Yohan Flande. Flande did exactly what he’s supposed to do in long relief, tossing 5.2 scoreless innings while allowing just two hits to the Angels after Chad Bettis blew up in his start on Tuesday night.
