Colorado Rockies OF Charlie Blackmon (abdomen) said Wednesday, March 11, that his abdominal strain only hurt when he swung a bat. He said most of the pain is now gone.
Fantasy Tip: Blackmon appears good to go for the regular season, barring any setbacks. The rare five-category producer is a solid fantasy outfielder, especially since his production is bolstered by playing half of his home games at hitter-friendly Coors Field.

Colorado Rockies OF Charlie Blackmon (abdomen) said he expected to make his Cactus League debut midweek. Blackmon also noted he wanted to work on having all facets of his game sharp during spring training, including working on his base running.
Fantasy Tip: A tour through Blackmon's split stats highlight his reliance on Coors Field (.331/.391/.524 home slash line vs. .241/.269/.348 road slash line) and a drastic second-half slide (.264/.314/.348 second-half slash line vs. .305/.349/.479 first-half slash line). Still, Blackmon is a rare five-category producer, but he is just likely to see his year-end numbers regress in 2015.

Colorado Rockies OF Charlie Blackmon (abdomen) is not in the spring lineup Wednesday, March 4, due to slight abdominal pain. However, he's scheduled to take batting practice.
Fantasy Tip: Blackmon had a solid year with the Rockies in 2014, but can he repeat his efforts in 2015? Be careful not to overvalue him in fantasy baseball drafts. Blackmon had drastic road splits away from the hitter's haven of Coors Field, and his second half numbers may be more indicative of what he has to offer this season.
