McMahon went 1-for-4 with a walkoff three-run home run in Saturday's win over the Dodgers.
The 23-year-old has now homered in consecutive games and is batting .344 with six extra-base hits in 14 games since his most recent recall (32 at-bats). He's still not playing every day, but McMahon is worth stashing in a lot of leagues as he has the skill set to be valuable if regular playing time were to open up.
McMahon went 2-for-4 with two doubles, a run scored and one RBI in Sunday's 3-2 win over Oakland.
It was McMahon's first MLB appearance since June 20, and his first multi-hit outing since May 26. The 23-year-old rookie is still batting just .222 with 10 RBI in 99 at-bats during the 2018 season. McMahon also doesn't have a secured spot in the every day lineup and he won't have much fantasy value unless injuries give him more playing time.
McMahon has been called up from Triple-A Albuquerque and will start at first base Sunday against the Athletics, Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post reports.
McMahon will step in at first base to relieve Ian Desmond, who hasn't had a true day off since June 17. The 23-year-old first baseman owns a .877 OPS at Albuquerque this season, but that hasn't translated to the majors, where she's slashing .211/.283/.337 across 106 plate appearances. He'll look to get back on track in the final months of the season, though it appears unlikely he has a path to consistent playing time.
McMahon was optioned to Triple-A Albuquerque on Thursday, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports.
The Rockies need a fresh bullpen arm after sending out six relievers in Wednesday's 10-8 win over the Mets, so McMahon will swap places with right-hander Yency Almonte. The Rockies are set to face a string of left-handed pitchers, so the move will allow McMahon to see consistent at-bats with the Isotopes. He's hitting just .211/.283/.337 through 47 games with the big club this season.
McMahon's first blast in 108 major-league at-bats -- yes, you read that correctly -- hit the bushes over the center field wall of Citizens Bank Park. In portions of two seasons, McMahon has not offered the type of power expected of his pedigree, partly because of inconsistent playing time, but maybe his short-term ceiling for homers was widely overestimated. He worked this start at third base in place of a resting Nolan Arenado, and he'll find trouble seeing more than a few days' work per week when the Rockies' lineup is healthy and active. He's most logically considered an NL-only asset in redraft leagues but could be collected as a bench stash in deeper mixed setups for the chance that more playing time opens up.
