Charlie Blackmon out against San Francisco ace
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

A matchup against Giants stud southpaw Madison Bumgarner on Friday night has surprising Rockies outfielder Charlie Blackmon grabbing some pine.

The left-handed hitting Blackmon has not cooled off since a three-game tear in which he bashed out 10 hits, including a 6-for-6 performance Arizona. He was 3 for 5 with two runs scored Wednesday against the White Sox and now owns a ridiculous .471 batting average on the season.

Making sense of Charlie Blackmon
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

Considering he was owned in just 2 percent of leagues to begin the season, Charlie Blackmon was about the last player you'd expect to lead all hitters in Head-to-Head scoring in Fantasy Week 1 (March 30-April 6). But lead them he did, so now here we all are trying to make sense of it.

During his brief stints in the majors and throughout his minor-league career, one thing he's always been able to do is hit for average. He created some skeptics with his poor plate discipline last year, but it was a bit out of character for him, as he's shown by striking out only once so far this year. Even if he never walks a ton, his batting average should allow him to score a decent number of runs batting atop the Rockies lineup, and 20-25 steals are perfectly attainable for him in a table-setter role. Though nobody considers him a power hitter, he performed on about a 35-double, 12-homer pace in 82 major-league games last year, which was in line with his minor-league norms.

I don't think he's the kind of player you'll start every week and wouldn't stress about clearing roster space for him in shallower Head-to-Head points leagues, but trading off some of the speed for a little more power, I could see him contributing at about the same level as Brett Gardner, which would make him a clear-cut mixed leaguer. Just because you wanted Corey Dickerson to beat him out this spring doesn't mean he isn't valuable in his own right.

Charlie Blackmon making a good case for more time
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Though Rockies manager Walt Weiss told MLB.com he is still planning on rotating his various outfield options in and out of the lineup, that was before Charlie Blackmon's huge performance Friday against the Diamondbacks.

Blackmon made his third start in five chances and made the most of it, going 6 for 6 with five runs driven in and four scores in a 12-2 win. He had three doubles and a home run, his first of the season.

Blackmon is now hitting .563 though five games, with nine hits, six RBI an four extra-base hits in 16 at-bats, while striking out just once.

Rockies center-field situation remains a guessing game
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

It appears Rockies manager Walt Weiss has a plan to rotate his options in center field to start the season.

After Charlie Blackmon drew the start in center during Monday's season opener, Drew Stubbs was in the starting lineup for Tuesday's game against the Marlins, despite a right-handed pitcher being on the hill. Corey Dickerson, who is also in the mix in center field, did not make an appearance in Monday's season opener.

Can Charlie Blackmon stave off Corey Dickerson?
by Al Melchior | Data Analyst

The Rockies' center field and leadoff jobs are not likely to get locked down after just one game, but by giving those responsibilities to Charlie Blackmon in the season opener, manager Walt Weiss has given him the first shot to prove himself worthy of an everyday role.

Blackmon just may be better suited to the leadoff role than rival Corey Dickerson. In the minors, he was more proficient at drawing walks and stealing bases. Then again, Blackmon has piled up 481 major league plate appearances over the last three years, and he has just 13 stolen bases and 14 walks to show for it. He does own a .291 batting average, but he owes much of that to the otherworldly 31 percent line drive rate he posted in 2013.

Should everything break right for Blackmon -- a return to more prolific walks and steals along with a sustained high line drive rate -- he could produce enough to keep his job. He would also have a high enough batting average and run total to justify ownership in mixed leagues. I'm skeptical that this will happen, and Dickerson has enough power to wrest playing time from Blackmon in due time, even if he is not the best fit for the leadoff spot.
