News: Blackmon is on track to serve as the regular center fielder for the Rockies in 2015, MLB.com's Thomas Harding reports.
Impact: Blackmon had to compete for the center field job last spring, but he'll face no such threats to the gig in 2015. Though the 28-year-old's production slowed in the second half of last season, he still finished with an impressive .288/.335/.440 line to go along with 19 homers, 28 steals, 82 runs, and 72 RBI, making him a legitimate five-category contributor. Expect Blackmon to pile up the counting stats as the leadoff hitter in a potent Rockies lineup, though his inferior numbers against lefty pitching make him somewhat susceptible to fall into a platoon with Drew Stubbs.
