Daza was placed on the COVID-19 injured list Friday.
It's not yet clear whether Daza has tested positive for the coronavirus, but he was one of several Rockies who landed on the COVID-19 injured list Friday. Garrett Hampson could see an uptick in playing time going forward, while Sam Hilliard was recalled from Triple-A Albuquerque as part of a corresponding move.
Daza isn't starting Wednesday's game against the Diamondbacks.
Daza had started each of the last three games, but he went 1-for-10 with a run, an RBI, a walk and a strikeout. Garrett Hampson will take over in center field and bat second.
Daza is not starting Friday's game against the Cardinals.
Daza gets another day off following his 0-for-4 effort in the series opener Thursday. Even so, the 27-year-old is hitting .315 on the season and has been an excellent surprise for the Rockies. Garrett Hampson bats second and starts in center field.
Daza is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Pirates, AT&T SportsNet Rocky Mountain reports.
Garrett Hampson will draw the start in center field in place of Daza, who is sitting for the first time in nine games. The 27-year-old looks to be locked in as the Rockies' No. 2 hitter and has been an elite source of batting average this season (.318 mark in 234 plate appearances), but Daza hasn't brought much else to the table from a fantasy perspective.
Daza went 2-for-4 with a triple and an RBI in Monday's win over Pittsburgh.
Daza got his squad on the board in the bottom of the third inning with an RBI triple to right field. He's been hot throughout the month of June at the dish, hitting .337 with one home run and 14 RBi in 25 games.
Daza is not in the starting lineup Friday against the Brewers.
Daza has become the primary center fielder of late, starting each of the last nine games. He'll take a seat Friday, however, with Garrett Hampson batting second and starting in center field.
Daza will start in center field and bat second Sunday against the Reds.
Even with Trevor Story's recent return from the injured list leaving less time available in the middle infield for Garrett Hampson, Daza has been able to maintain an everyday role in the outfield. Daza will draw his fifth start in a row Sunday, and he should continue to play regularly while he's wielding a hot bat. Over his last 13 games, Daza is hitting .356 with five RBI, three runs and a 4:8 BB:K.
Daza is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Marlins.
Unless he's used in a pinch-hitting capacity, Daza will put his eight-game hitting streak on hold Tuesday. Daza had started in the last seven of those games, but Garrett Hampson will spell him in center field in the series opener. Colorado is expected to get Trevor Story (shoulder) back from the injured list this week, and his return will leave fewer reps available for Hampson at shortstop. If the Rockies decide to use Hampson more regularly in center field, Daza will lose out on some playing time, though he's made a strong case for himself with a .331 batting average across 153 plate appearances.
Daza will start in center field and bat second Wednesday against the Rangers, AT&T SportsNet Rocky Mountain reports.
Daza appears to be encroaching on Garrett Hampson's role as the Rockies' primary center fielder. Hampson -- who was on the bench for the previous three games -- will fill in for Brendan Rodgers at shortstop on Wednesday, paving the way for Daza to pick up his fourth consecutive start in center. Daza has reached base in nine of his 13 plate appearances over the past three contests, so he could continue to receive steady work while he's swinging a hot bat.
Daza went 2-for-4 with a stolen base in Sunday's 7-6 loss to Cincinnati.
Daza has hit safely in seven straight games, going 14-for-23 (.609) with three RBI, four runs scored and two stolen bases in that span. He filled in for Charlie Blackmon (groin) in right field Sunday. Daza is slashing .347/.370/.432 with a home run, two steals, nine RBI and nine runs scored across 101 plate appearances overall.
Daza isn't starting Saturday's game against the Cardinals.
Daza will be out of the lineup for a fifth consecutive game as he appears to have lost his hold on the starting job in center field. Garrett Hampson will start in center while Ryan McMahon shifts to second base and Josh Fuentes takes over at third.
Daza isn't starting Wednesday's game against the Giants.
Daza came off the bench in each of the games in Tuesday's doubleheader, and he'll remain out of the lineup for the series finale. Garrett Hampson will start in center field while Alan Trejo starts at second base.
Daza is not in the lineup for Game 2 of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Giants, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports.
Daza will end up on the bench for both games of the twin bill, though he did take a walk as a pinch hitter during the matinee. Raimel Tapia, Garrett Hampson and Charlie Blackmon will start from left to right in the outfield for the nightcap.
Daza will sit for the first portion of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Giants, Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post reports.
Daza hits the bench after starting 11 of the last 12 games, a stretch in which he struggled to a .596 OPS. He'll likely return to the lineup for the nightcap.
Daza is not starting Tuesday against the Giants, Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post reports.
Daza hits the bench after starting six straight games. Coors Field is undoubtedly part of the reason why he's hitting .326 so far this season, but the field isn't going away anytime soon, so he should remain useful to fantasy teams in at least one category as long as he remains in a regular role. He deserves a fair amount of the credit for his high average as well, as he's striking out just 13.3 percent of the time. Sam Hilliard gets the start in center field in his absence.
Daza will start for the third straight game in center field Saturday against the Phillies.
The Rockies will again move Garrett Hampson in to second base, pushing Ryan McMahon to third and Josh Fuentes to the bench. Anyone with a regular role who plays half their games at Coors Field is at least somewhat interesting for fantasy purposes, and Daza has made good contact thus far, hitting .344 through 33 plate appearances. He was never a particularly exciting prospect, but he runs well and makes enough contact to give him some fantasy appeal if he keeps his job.
Daza went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Wednesday's 6-3 win over the Astros.
Daza began the year as a depth outfielder for the Rockies, but he's now started in three of the last five games. He's racked up one homer, three RBI, three runs scored and no steals in 29 plate appearances. The 27-year-old has added a pair of doubles among his 10 hits and could earn more playing time if he continues to hit well.
Daza went 3-for-4 with a RBI in Thursday's 7-5 loss to the Dodgers.
The part-time outfielder is now hitting .375 in 16 at-bats this season. Daza earned a roster spot with a strong spring training and may work his way into the lineup more regularly with more offensive showings like Thursday's. So far, though, he's primarily been a pinch hitter, having started just three games.
The Rockies will include Daza on their Opening Day roster, Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post reports.
Daza was able to secure a spot as the Rockies' fifth outfielder after supplying an .883 OPS over 44 at-bats during Cactus League play. The 27-year-old possesses high-end speed and could prove to be a useful weapon off the bench, but he's unlikely to find regular starts while at least three of Charlie Blackmon, Raimel Tapia, Garrett Hampson and Sam Hilliard are healthy.
Daza went 4-for-4 with a solo home run, one double and three runs in Tuesday's spring win over the Reds.
Daza is competing for a reserve role on the major-league roster during camp this year, and he made a strong case while coming within a triple of the cycle in Tuesday's Cactus League matchup. The 27-year-old is out of options but has impressed in Cactus League play, going 13-for-28 with a home run, three doubles, six runs, four RBI, one stolen base and five strikeouts across 14 spring games.
