Hawpe Continue Hot Hitting with Homer

Brad Hawpe was 2-for-4 with a home run as the Rockies won their seventh consecutive game. The Rockies defeated the Brewers 4-2. Hawpe’s fifth-inning double gave the Rockies a one-run advantage. He would later add a home run in the seventh for some additional insurance. Hawpe has a hit in every game this month and now sits fifth in the National League with 45 RBI. (Rotoworld)

Hawpe Extends Hit Streak to Eleven

Brad Hawpe went 1-for-4 in Tuesday’s win against the Brewers. The hit extended his streak to 11 games, the longest in his career. Trade rumors have been swirling regarding Hawpe, who is arguably the best hitter in Colorado. If he gets sent to an contending team such as the Red Sox, his fantasy value would get a jolt.

Hawpe Launches Two-Run Game-Winner in Ninth

Brad Hawpe was 2-for-4 with a go-ahead two-run home run in a win over the Pirates on Friday night. Hawpe launched a ninth-inning two-run homer off Matt Capps to push the Rockies ahead 2-1. He is absolutely on fire this month, batting .429 with four bombs and 14 RBI. (Rotoworld)

Rebounding Hawpe Triple Short of Cycle

Brad Hawpe finished 4-for-4 with a home run and five RBI Tuesday to help the Rockies dismantle the Astros 12-1. Hawpe finished a triple short of the cycle, adding his 10th double and fifth home run on Tuesday night. He’s up to 25 RBI and a .359 batting average, but his impressive start to the season has gone mostly unnoticed. That might not last long. (Rotoworld)

Hawpe Riding an On-Base Streak

RF Brad Hawpe has been on base in each of his past 14 starts. Since coming back from a neck contusion that caused him to miss three starts April 28-May 1, Hawpe is 10-for-29 with two doubles, two homers and four RBI. The left-handed hitting Hawpe has hit three of his four homers this season against left-handed pitchers. Hawpe looks like he is picking up for Matt Holliday nicely this season. Consider him a solid start in all leagues for Fantasy Week 6 (May 11-17). (CBS Sports)

Hawpe Homers to Get Back on Track

Brad Hawpe (neck) went 1-for-4 in Saturday’s win against the Giants, including his third home run of the season. Hawpe’s batting average dropped to .317 with the 1-for-4 performance. It looks like his health is close enough to 100% to deploy him in daily leagues. (Rotowire, CBS Sports)

Hawpe Likely Back in Lineup Friday

Brad Hawpe (neck) is expected to return to the lineup Friday. Hawpe was nailed in the neck with a pickoff throw Monday night, but the injury was diagnosed as a simple contusion on Tuesday. “My neck is pretty stiff, but it could have been a lot worse,” Hawpe said. Getting beamed in the neck is the second injury that Hawpe has sustained whilst sliding since the start of camp this season. “I was thinking about that when I went back last night, that I’m going back feet-first,” Hawpe said. “It’s kind of crazy.” It seems unlikely that he will be available for anything more than a pinch hit on Wednesday or Thursday.

Hawpe Suffers Concussion, Carted Off the Field

Brad Hawpe was taken to a hospital with a possible concussion after he was hit in the neck by a throw to second in the sixth inning Monday night, the Associated Press reports. The injury occurred on a throw to second by the catcher to try and pick off Hawpe, who was sliding back into the bag. Hawpe stayed on the ground until trainers attended to him. He was then rolled over, had a brace put around his neck and helped onto a cart, where he sat upright as he left the field. Seth Smith and Ian Stewart would stand to benefit most if Hawpe lands on the disabled list. Matt Murton could be recalled, but he probably won’t have any fantasy value. (Rotowire, Rotoworld)

“We know he’s doing OK,” Rockies OF Ryan Spilborghs said after the Rockies’ 12-7 victory. “At first, we thought maybe he got spiked in the face, maybe the ball hit him in the face or something,” Spilborghs said. “You always think the worst. We heard he got hit in the back of the neck, and that’s still scary, but at least there was no structural damage in our mind.” David Eckstein, who was covering second base, winced as Hawpe got hit by the ball. “I actually thought it hit him in the face,” Eckstein said. “It hit him solid, that’s why I was scared. I didn’t really hear a sound and I know it didn’t hit my glove.” According to this report, this injury shouldn’t have any long-term effect on Hawpe, but he could potentially go on the DL. He was hitting the ball well lately and had even gone 2-for-3 Monday, but his safety obviously comes first in this sort of situation.

Update: Though there aren’t extensive details yet available, the Denver Post reports that Brad Hawpe was doing better Tuesday after suffering a possible concussion on a pickoff throw Monday night. That he’s doing better is certainly good news, but it still remains to be seen whether or not he’ll require a stint on the DL. More details on his status are expected to become available later on Tuesday. (Rotoworld)

Update 2: Brad Hawpe has been diagnosed with a neck contusion after being hit with a pickoff throw Monday night. This is certainly good news for Hawpe, as it originally appeared that he may have suffered a concussion. Though he’s not likely to play on Tuesday, it looks like he’ll be able to avoid a trip to the DL. (Rotoworld)

Hawpe Still Solid Against Dodgers

Rockies OF Brad Hawpe singled twice and drove in two runs on Saturday in a loss to the Dodgers. Hawpe is batting .308 on the season. Hawpe has 13 RBI on the year and remains a worthy start in all Fantasy formats. He has the upside to hit 30 home runs and has begun playing more and more against left-handers over the last few years. Get him active as a No. 3 Fantasy OF. (CBS Sports)
