Rockies' Raimel Tapia: Swipes two bags in three-hit day
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tapia went 3-for-5 with one RBI, one run scored and a pair of stolen bases in the 8-4 loss to the Diamondbacks on Sunday.

Despite losing Sunday, Tapia marked up the scoresheet in many categories. The speedster took advantage of three singles, swiping second twice and scoring a run. Tapia has totaled seven hits in his last two games. The 27-year-old is batting .320 with an OPS of .801.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tapia isn't in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Giants, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports.

Rockies' Raimel Tapia: Plates two RBI in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tapia went 2-for-5 with two RBI and a run scored in Sunday's 12-2 win over the Phillies.

Tapia did most of his damage during a seven-run fourth inning when he notched a two-RBI single with the bases loaded and then later came around to score on a Trevor Story grand slam. The 27-year-old Tapia is currently riding a seven-game hit streak and sports a slash line of .306/.363/.458 with three home runs, 10 RBI, eight runs scored and a 7:7 BB:K this season.

Rockies' Raimel Tapia: Launches walkoff homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tapia went 3-for-5 with a solo home run in a victory over the Phillies on Friday.

Tapia came up to the plate in the bottom of the ninth inning with a pair of singles already on his ledger, and he proceeded to notch the biggest hit of the evening with a solo shot off Hector Neris to provide the walkoff win. The blast was Tapia's third this season after going deep just once in 204 plate appearances in 2020. The 27-year-old has registered a sub-10-percent strikeout rate on the campaign while slashing .297/.352/.453.

Rockies' Raimel Tapia: Swats second homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tapia went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in the first game of Saturday's doubleheader against the Mets.

He took Jacob deGrom deep in the fifth inning, capping a three-run outburst that put the Rockies in position to win before a bullpen meltdown. Tapia has yet to get rolling at the plate, and through 14 games he's slashing .260/.302/.380 with two homers and five RBI.

Rockies' Raimel Tapia: Sitting Game 2
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tapia is not in the lineup for Game 2 of Saturday's doubleheader against the Mets.

The 27-year-old started in left field and batted leadoff in the matinee, going 1-for-3 with a solo home run. Yonathan Daza will start in left field and bat seventh in Tapia's place for Game 2.

Rockies' Raimel Tapia: Reaches base three times
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tapia went 2-for-4 with a walk in Wednesday's 4-2 loss to the Dodgers.

Now at .286, Tapia's average has been steadily rising after an unremarkable first few games of the season. The outfielder's production figures to improve when Trevor Story and Charlie Blackmon, who hit behind Tapia in the order, begin posting their expected offensive numbers. Tapia doesn't take many walks, but he's struck out only six times in 42 at-bats and has the contact skills to repeat his strong 2020 season and become a force in the Colorado lineup.

Rockies' Raimel Tapia: Sits against lefty
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tapia is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Diamondbacks.

After recently returning from a stiff neck, the lefty-hitting Tapia will head to the bench Wednesday with southpaw Madison Bumgarner on the bump for Arizona. The right-handed Chris Owings fills in for Tapia in left field, batting second.

Rockies' Raimel Tapia: Returns from neck issue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tapia (neck) is back in the lineup Tuesday against Arizona, leading off and playing left field.

Tapia sat Sunday against the Dodgers due to a sore neck, though he did appear off the bench, striking out in his lone plate appearance. He's good to go from the start of this one following Monday's off day.

Rockies' Raimel Tapia: Dealing with neck soreness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tapia's neck is still sore but he is doing better and will be available Sunday against the Dodgers, if needed, Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post reports.

A collision with the outfield wall Saturday resulted in symptoms of whiplash for Tapia. He is out of the lineup Sunday and it sounds like he's only available in an emergency, but fortunately, it seems he avoided a concussion. The Rockies have an off-day Monday before they welcome the Diamondbacks for a three-game set.

Rockies' Raimel Tapia: Out of lineup Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tapia (whiplash) is not in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Dodgers.

Tapia was removed from Saturday's game in the eighth inning after he experienced symptoms of whiplash following a collision with the outfield wall. His status is uncertain. Chris Owings will start in left field and lead off against left-hander Julio Urias.

Rockies' Raimel Tapia: Exits Saturday's game with whiplash
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tapia was removed in the eighth inning of Saturday's 6-5 loss to the Dodgers when he experienced symptoms of whiplash after colliding with the wall while attempting to catch a fly ball, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports.

While Tapia was able to prevent Zach McKinistry's opposite-field, two-out blast from leaving the yard, his inability to catch the deep fly and his subsequent collision with the wall resulted in a go-ahead inside-the-park home run. According to manager Bud Black, Tapia -- who had previously hit a solo homer earlier in the contest -- was slightly dazed after exiting, but team trainers don't believe he sustained a concussion. Tapia is uncertain to play in Sunday's series finale.

Rockies' Raimel Tapia: Goes deep against Dodgers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tapia went 1-for-3 with a home run in Saturday's loss against the Dodgers.

Tapia might have connected on his first homer of the season when he took Walker Buehler deep in the third inning with two outs, but he will undoubtedly be remembered for his defensive mistake that allowed the inside-the-park homer of Zach McKinstry. Tapia has hit safely in each of the Rockies' first three games, but he's still looking for his first multi-hit game of the campaign.

Rockies' Raimel Tapia: Drives in two
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tapia went 1-for-5 with two RBI on Thursday against the Dodgers.

Tapia didn't drive a ball out of the infield but took advantage of runners getting on base ahead of him to produce in the box score. Most importantly, Tapia maintained his status as the team's leadoff hitter, which should give him the opportunity to swipe some bases and score plenty of runs this season.

Rockies' Raimel Tapia: Homers in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tapia went 1-for-2 with a two-run home run in Wednesday's 10-7 spring win over the Athletics.

Tapia hit just one home run last season, but he put the Rockies on the board Wednesday with a homer to left field in the third inning. Tapia has been effective at hitting for average over the past two years, forging a .289 figure over 189 games during that time. He's effective at making contact with balls outside the zone, but he's also struggled with meaningful contact since he chases so many pitches. However, the 27-year-old's plate discipline has improved over the past few seasons, and the Rockies are hopeful that he'll develop more power if he continues to shift his approach in the batter's box, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports.

Rockies' Raimel Tapia: Signs one-year deal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tapia and the Rockies agreed to a one-year, $1.95 million deal Friday, avoiding arbitration.

Tapia started 48 games in last year's shortened season, hitting .321/.369/.402 with one homer and eight steals. That slash line translates to an unimpressive 96 wRC+ when Coors Field is factored in, but he'll remain an interesting enough fantasy option as long as he remains a regular in Colorado given the boost his home park provides.

Rockies' Raimel Tapia: Two RBI, stolen base in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tapia went 1-for-5 with an RBI single, sacrifice fly and stolen base in the 5-4 win over the Giants on Thursday.

Tapia drove in Ryan McMahon in the fourth and stole his eighth base later in the inning. The outfielder later came up with the game-winning RBI with a sacrifice fly in the 11th. Tapia is slashing .296/.348/.367 on the campaign.

Rockies' Raimel Tapia: In lineup Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tapia (head) will lead off and play left field Tuesday, Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post reports.

Dizziness forced Tapia to exit Sunday's game against the Angels, but he's ready to go following Monday's off day. He hasn't shown much power this season, but his .302/.371/.381 slash line is nevertheless decent.

Rockies' Raimel Tapia: Exits after dizzy spell
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Bud Black said that Tapia was removed after four innings in Sunday's 5-3 loss to the Angels after experiencing dizziness during the contest, Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post reports. He went 1-for-2 with a base hit and a run scored before departing.

Manager Bud Black said that Tapia was feeling ill prior to Sunday's game, and he was dizzy after he made a diving catch in the third inning. He was removed from the game as a result. The Rockies are off Monday, so Tapia will get a full day to recover before the team determines whether he's fit to play Tuesday against the Athletics.
