News: Ottavino (elbow) will likely require Tommy John surgery, costing him the remainder of the 2015 season, the Denver Post reports.
Impact: It appears to be the worst-case scenario for Ottavino, who's suffering from an inflamed triceps and elbow. However, he'll receive a second opinion from Dr. James Andrews before officially deciding whether or not to undergo the procedure. In his absence, John Axford will likely assume the closer role for the Rockies, while the young hurler would face a long recovery road ahead following the potential procedure.
News: Blackmon went 3-for-5 with two solo homers and three runs scored in Sunday's loss to the Padres.
Impact: Blackmon's power numbers had been down from his 2014 marks heading into the weekend series, but with three homers in the past two days -- in one of the league's most pitcher-friendly parks, no less -- the outfielder is right back on pace. His .316 batting average is probably set to decline in light of his .362 BABIP and career-worst 21.2 percent strikeout rate, though probably not enough to make him a sell-high candidate in most leagues. Blackmon looks in line for another fantasy-friendly season.
