Michael Cuddyer homered as the Rockies' first baseman Monday in his return from the disabled list.
Definitely easier for Cuddyer to play first base on his tender hammy than to run around the outfield. Still, the Rockies will want Justin Morneau back in there against right-handers the next two days. Perhaps Cuddyer will play one game in right. Sep 8 - 10:23 PM

Rockies activated OF Michael Cuddyer from the 15-day disabled list.

Cuddyer landed on the disabled list late last month with a left hamstring strain, but he managed to return as soon as he was eligible. The impending free agent has been limited to just 34 games this season, but he has been very productive when on the field, batting .331/.376/.546 with six home runs.

Michael Cuddyer (hamstring) will be activated from the disabled list on Tuesday.

Cuddyer has been on the shelf the last couple weeks with a strained left hamstring but is nearly ready to roll again. The veteran has been limited to 34 games this season but has been productive when healthy, hitting .331/.376/.546 with six home runs.
Sep 7 - 1:32 PM

Rockies placed OF Michael Cuddyer on the 15-day disabled list with a left hamstring strain.

Cuddyer insisted on Friday that he would not be placed on the disabled list, but obviously he hasn't progressed as hoped. It's the third trip to the DL he's made this season. Christian Bergman, who is starting on Sunday, is replacing Cuddyer on the roster.
Aug 24 - 2:11 PM

Michael Cuddyer drew a walk as a pinch-hitter in Saturday's extra-innings win over the Marlins.

Cuddyer hasn't started a game since Sunday due to a sore hamstring, but obviously he was feeling well enough to pinch-hit. He's expected to avoid the disabled list.
Aug 24 - 4:41 AM

Michael Cuddyer (hamstring) hopes to return to the Rockies' lineup Sunday versus the Marlins.

Cuddyer has been sidelined with a left hamstring injury since August 19. He took swings and did some fielding drills Saturday without issue. The veteran outfielder is batting .331/.376/.546 on the season for the Rockies, but he has appeared in just 33 of 127 games.
Aug 23 - 6:22 PM

Michael Cuddyer (hamstring) isn't expected to return to the lineup until at least Sunday.

Cuddyer had been expected to return Friday, but his hamstring remains more swollen than expected. "I'm not going on the DL," Cuddyer said. "You can put that in bold letters." Charlie Blackmon is in right field Friday, with Drew Stubbs handling center.
Aug 22 - 5:19 PM

Michael Cuddyer (hamstring) remained out of the Rockies' lineup Friday.

Cuddyer expected to be ready to play, but the club has elected to hold him out at least one more day. The veteran outfielder hasn't played since Sunday's doubleheader due to a sore hamstring. Charlie Blackmon is in right field Friday, with Drew Stubbs handling center.
Aug 22 - 4:50 PM

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Rockies placed Michael Cuddyer on revocable waivers Sunday but pulled him back after he experienced hamstring soreness.

Thus, Rosenthal says the veteran outfielder will not be traded. Cuddyer has had an injury-plagued 2014 season, but he's been awfully productive when healthy the last two years, batting .331/.386/.533. He would have been a nice post-deadline acquisition for a contender.
Aug 21 - 9:08 PM

Michael Cuddyer (hamstring) expects to return Friday.

Cuddyer is out of the Rockies' starting lineup again on Wednesday due to hamstring soreness, but it's not a major injury. The Rockies are off on Thursday and then begin a three-game series with the Marlins on Friday night.
Aug 20 - 4:58 PM

Michael Cuddyer is sitting out Tuesday night against the Royals because of hamstring soreness.

Drew Stubbs is starting in center field and Charlie Blackmon is starting in right field versus Kansas City. Cuddyer has been a highly-productive player for the Rockies when healthy, but the veteran outfielder has appeared in just 33 of the club's 124 games in 2014.
Aug 19 - 5:30 PM

Michael Cuddyer hit for the cycle and drove home three runs, leading the Rockies to a 10-5 victory in the second game of Sunday's doubleheader against the Reds.

It's the second time in Cuddyer's career that he's hit for the cycle, accomplishing the feat with the Twins in 2009. He got the hardest part out of the way early with a triple in the first inning. After striking out in his second at-bat, Cuddyer homered off Dylan Axelrod to start the sixth inning, added a single in the seventh and hammered a two-run double in the eighth. The 35-year-old is hitting .331/.376/.546 with six homers and 19 RBI on the season, and should provide a nice boost to fantasy owners down the stretch.
Aug 18 - 1:39 AM

Rockies activated OF Michael Cuddyer from the 60-day disabled list.

Cuddyer is batting second in his return to the Rockies' lineup Saturday after missing three months with a fracture in his left shoulder. He's been highly productive when healthy during his time with Colorado and should hold significant fantasy value down the stretch.
Aug 16 - 4:51 PM

Michael Cuddyer (shoulder) is scheduled to be activated from the disabled list on Saturday.

Cuddyer is playing his eighth and final rehab game on Thursday. He'll rest Friday before being activated Saturday if all is well. "He's going to play today and tomorrow is going to be a travel day for him," Rockies manager Walt Weiss said. "If everything goes OK, he has a chance to be in the starting lineup for us on Saturday." Cuddyer has been sidelined since early June with a broken left shoulder.
Aug 14 - 9:54 PM

Michael Cuddyer went 3-for-3 with two doubles and three RBI in his first rehab game with short-season Grand Junction on Wednesday.

Cuddyer hadn't played since sustaining a broken shoulder in early June, so the returns, even for Rookie League ball, were promising in his first game. He'll spend a week with the club before taking his rehab assignment to Double-A Tulsa, and a mid-August return seems plausible.
