    • Rockies' Ian Desmond: Third straight start
      By RotoWire Staff

      Desmond will start in center field and bat seventh Sunday against the Orioles. Desmond will draw a third straight start while Charlie Blackmon remains out with a calf issue. Assuming Blackmon's injury only proves to be a day-to-day concern, Desmond should fall back into a fourth-outfielder role before long. He did little to make a case for earning more playing time in the first two games of the series, going 0-for-7 with five strikeouts.

    • Rockies' Ian Desmond: In short side of platoon
      By RotoWire Staff

      Desmond is not in Saturday's lineup against the Phillies, Kyle Newman of The Denver Post reports. Desmond has not started against a right-handed pitcher since May 1, and he appears to have fallen into the short side of a platoon with Raimel Tapia, who will start in left field against righty Aaron Nola on Saturday. The platoon has helped his numbers, as he is hitting .290/.405/.645 with two home runs over his last 10 games.

    • Rockies' Ian Desmond: Slugs fifth homer
      By RotoWire Staff

      Desmond went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run Friday night against Philadelphia. Desmond cut Colorado's deficit to one in the sixth inning with a two-run blast to left field, but the Phillies would emerge victorious. Despite leaving the yard Friday night, the 33-year-old is slashing .219/.284/.430 with 15 extra-base hits and 20 RBI through 39 games this season.

    • Rockies' Ian Desmond: Sitting versus lefty
      By RotoWire Staff

      Desmond is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Padres, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports. Even with the Rockies facing a southpaw (Nick Margevicius) for the fifth straight contest, Desmond will head to the bench as manager Bud Black rolls out an all-left-handed outfield of Raimel Tapia, David Dahl and Charlie Blackmon. The Rockies are expected to face southpaws (Chris Sale and Eduardo Rodriguez) in back-to-back games Tuesday and Wednesday in Boston, so Desmond probably won't have to wait long to rejoin the lineup.

    • Rockies' Ian Desmond: Smacks fourth home run
      By RotoWire Staff

      Desmond went 1-for-2 with three walks, a two-run home run and two runs scored Thursday against the Giants. Desmond took Derek Holland deep in the second inning to record his fourth home run of the season. With his hit today, he raised his batting average above .200 for the first time since Opening Day, an indication of how poor he's been to this point. On the bright side, three of his four home runs have come in his past 10 games, though that may not be enough for him to regularly maintain playing time over Raimel Tapia.
