Rockies' Pat Valaika: Drives in two
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Valaike went 2-for-2 including a home run and two RBI Sunday against the Padres.

Although Valaike didn't get the start Sunday, he was inserted late in the game at third base -- he capitalized in both of his at-bats, providing the Rockies with two extra-base hits. The California native continues to prove that he can contribute off the bench, hitting his 13th home run of the season to go along with 40 RBI in 176 at-bats. Valaike will continue to come off the bench and receive the occasional start as the season comes to a close.

Rockies' Pat Valaika: Launches pinch-hit homer Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Valaika mashed a pinch-hit, two-run homer in Sunday's 13-3 win over the Pirates.

Valaika was one of three Colorado hitters to hit one into the seats during the sixth inning, along with Trevor Story and Mark Reynolds. The 24-year-old infielder has seven home runs in just 66 plate appearances at Coors Field, and owns a terrific .538 slugging percentage overall.

Rockies' Pat Valaika: Drives in five runs in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Valaika went 2-for-5 with a three-run home run and five RBI during Sunday's win over the White Sox.

Despite showing limited power in the minors, Valaika has seven homers and a .514 slugging percentage through just 114 plate appearances this season. Six of his seven blasts have come at Coors Field, which affirms his limited fantasy value outside of NL-only settings and daily contests. Valaika isn't receiving enough at-bats to be relied on in the majority of leagues.

Rockies' Pat Valaika: Pops sixth homer Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Valaika went 3-for-4 with a home run and three RBI in Wednesday's 5-3 win over the Reds.

With Alexi Amarista needed at second base to cover for DJ LeMahieu (groin), Valaika got a rare start at shortstop in place of the resting Trevor Story and responded with his sixth homer of the year and first since June 18. While the 24-year-old utility player has some pop, his plate discipline issues -- Valaika has a 3.2 percent walk rate and 28.2 percent strikeout rate in in big-league career -- suggest that not even calling Coors Field home can do much to buttress his .245 batting average.

Rockies' Pat Valaika: Seeing fewer opportunities
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Valaika is slashing .226/.262/.500 in 62 at-bats this season.

The 24-year-old has cooled off from his hot start and is hitting .188 in 48 at-bats since the start of May. Valaika has seen his playing time diminish greatly over recent weeks, with seven of his last 10 plate appearances coming as a pinch hitter.
