LeMahieu did not receive a $17.9 million qualifying offer from the Indians before Friday's deadline, Nick Groke of The Athletic reports. With prospects Garrett Hampson and Brendan Rodgers knocking on the door of the majors, the Rockies will let LeMahieu hit the open market. The veteran second baseman hit just .276 in 2018 after batting above .300 in the previous three seasons, though he swatted a career-high 15 homers. LeMahieu shouldn't have trouble finding work given his proven track record as a two-way player.
LeMahieu went 3-for-5 with two runs and two RBI in Tuesday's win over the Phillies. LeMahieu hit a couple RBI singles in Tuesday's contest and gathered his fourth multi-hit game in the last five days, bringing his slash line to .282/.329/.441. The 30-year-old has 61 RBI, 88 runs and six stolen bases this year. He's also matched his career high in doubles (32) from 2016 while setting a new career high in homers (15) this season.
LeMahieu went 3-for-5 with a two-run home run, two runs scored and a strikeout in Wednesday's win over the Diamondbacks. LeMahieu was the hero in this one, depositing Yoshihisa Hirano's 1-1 offering with one out in the ninth over the fence for a walkoff win. The 30-year-old has been red hot all September, hitting .370 (17-for-46) in the month with three homers, three doubles, two triples and nine RBI.
LeMahieu went 3-for-4 with a run and two RBI in Monday's win over the Diamondbacks. LeMahieu registered his fifth straight multi-hit game, raising his average to .278. He's also shown more power this season with a career-high 14 home runs despite missing time with a thumb injury. He'll look to keep the hot streak going as the Rockies continue their crucial series with Arizona.
LeMahieu went 1-for-5 with a solo home run against the Padres on Saturday. LeMahieu took southpaw Robbie Erlin deep in the fourth inning to record his 13th home run of the season. He's managed to slug over .500 against lefties this season, pacing him to a career high in home runs. While he has hit significantly better at home in terms of batting average, 11 of his 13 home runs have come away from Coors Field this season.
