    Rockies OF Brandon Barnes likely out for rest of 2015 season

    Rockies outfielder Brandon Barnes (hamstring) is likely out for the season, according to manager Walt Weiss, Patrick Saunders of the Denver Post reports. Barnes had to exit Wednesday's contest after suffering a mild left hamstring strain, and it now appears it will cost him the remainder of the season. It doesn't sound as though it's too major of an issue though, so he should be able to have his usual offseason routine. With Charlie Blackmon nursing a neck injury, Corey Dickerson may be called upon more down the stretch.

    Rockies OF Brandon Barnes triples among three hits on Saturday

    Rockies outfielder Brandon Barnes had a nice night at the plate on Saturday. Barnes went 3 for 4 with a triple, an RBI and a run scored in the 5-4 loss to the Padres. Barnes tripled in a run in the seventh inning to trim the Padres' lead to one run, and would then score the game-tying run. Barnes has a nice five-game hitting streak going, during which he is batting .533 with four extra-base hits. His already sporadic playing time will likely dwindle further once Corey Dickerson returns from a foot injury.
