Rockies' Charlie Blackmon: Staying with Rockies for 2023

Blackmon is 36 and was worth 0.2 fWAR in 135 games before suffering a season-ending knee injury, so picking up the option was an easy call. He could retire following the 2023 season.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' Charlie Blackmon: Done for season
The Rockies placed Blackmon on the 10-day injured list Wednesday with a torn meniscus in his left knee.

There's no word yet on how long it might take him to recover, but he should be ready to go by the start of next season. To fill his spot on the active roster, Colorado reinstated Jose Iglesias (thumb) from the 10-day injured list.... See More ... See Less

Rockies' Charlie Blackmon: Tending to hamstring injury
Blackmon's early exit in Thursday's 13-0 loss to the Cardinals is being attributed to a hamstring injury, Nick Groke of The Athletic reports.
Blackmon appeared to tweak his hamstring while running out an infield single in his lone plate appearance of the day in the top of the first inning. He played defense in the bottom of the inning before he was ultimately replaced by Wynton Bernard in right field an inning later. After the game, manager Bud Black told Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post that he believes Blackmon will be OK in a couple of days, so Blackmon is seemingly on track to avoid a trip to the injured list but doubtful to return to the lineup for Friday's series opener with the Giants....
