Rockies' Charlie Blackmon (COVID-19) remains at home in Georgia
Colorado Rockies manager Bud Black told reporters that outfielder Charlie Blackmon (COVID-19) is still isolating at his home in Georgia and has not joined the team for workouts.
Blackmon was diagnosed with the virus last month, and it is unclear what his current status is. He will have to return two negative tests before he can be permitted to return to the team, if he does choose to do so. Obviously the Rockies would love to have their stud back as soon as possible, but Blackmon's health and the health of those around him are more important.
If healthy by the league opener later this month, numberFire projects Blackmon to bat 0.303 with 10 home runs, 40 runs, 31 RBI, and 2 stolen bases.
