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.

Rockies right-handed pitching prospect Jon Gray allowed five hits and three runs over two innings, striking out two batters for Double-A Tulsa on Wednesday.

Gray has yet to put together a streak of good starts, and needed 68 pitches to get through two innings against the Arkansas Travelers, a team bereft of potential impact prospects. He has frontline potential, but there were rumors that Gray would be in Colorado before July and he has instead remained in Double-A.

Jorge De La Rosa lasted eight innings and held the Royals to two runs Wednesday to improve to 13-8 on the season.

De La Rosa is certainly an underrated hurler, but an innings eater he isn't; this is the first time all year that he's gone eight innings. He has just one complete game in 185 major league starts. At 103 pitches after eight tonight, the Rockies had the option of sending him back out for the ninth, but chose not to do so.

Making his first major league start in two years, Matt McBride hit a grand slam Wednesday off the Royals' Danny Duffy.

McBride, who was just called up yesterday to help out at first base, also singled in the contest. The slam was his third major league homer, the other two coming in Sept. 2012. McBride's stay figured to be a short one, just until Justin Morneau got healthier, but maybe he'll last through September if he has a couple of more nice games.

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.

Rafael Betancourt (elbow) has been moved up to Triple-A Colorado Springs from short-season Grand Junction.

Making his way back from Tommy John surgery, Betancourt holds a 1.76 ERA and 12/5 K/BB ratio over 15 1/3 rehab innings to this point. He could join the Rockies' bullpen next month. "He's building himself up," manager Walt Weiss said. "We'll see if there's an opportunity to get him in the mix down the stretch."

Carlos Gonzalez might not be ready for the start of spring training after undergoing surgery Tuesday on his left patella tendon.

CarGo had a torn portion of the tendon cut out and also a bursa sac removed and a "fat pad" cleaned up. The operation went well, but the recovery period is a bit of an unknown. "We really don't know how he's going to be until that 4 1/2- to 5-month mark," Rockies head athletic trainer Keith Dugger said. "He might be a little delayed in spring training. But our goal is to get him there and get him ready."

Rockies transferred SS Troy Tulowitzki from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

The move clears space on the 40-man roster for Matt McBride. Tulo, of course, is out for the season following surgery to repair the labrum in his left hip.
Aug 19 - 8:41 PM

Rockies purchased the contract of 1B/OF Matt McBride from Triple-A Colorado Springs.

McBride has had a nice year for Colorado Springs, batting .305/.345/.487 with seven homers over 51 games. He'll provide some depth at first base with Justin Morneau (neck) a little banged up.
Aug 19 - 8:40 PM

Rockies optioned LHP Yohan Flande to Triple-A Colorado Springs.

Flande has struggled in his time with the big club this season, posting a 5.52 ERA across 45 2/3 frames. Christian Bergman is expected to be activated from the DL to take his spot in the rotation.
Aug 19 - 8:36 PM

Christian Bergman (hand) could rejoin the Rockies' rotation on Sunday against the Marlins.

Bergman has been out since late June with a fractured left hand, but he's ready to go physically after making four rehab starts. He's not someone to worry about in fantasy leagues.
Aug 19 - 6:29 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

Justin Morneau (neck) is back in the Rockies' starting lineup on Tuesday against the Royals.

Morneau missed a few games with a lingering neck injury. He is starting at first base and batting third for the Rockies against Royals right-hander James Shields.
Aug 19 - 4:50 PM

Rockies prospect OF Raimel Tapia went 3-for-4 with his ninth home run of the season on Sunday for Low-A Asheville.

Asheville’s home field is a notoriously hitter-friendly park, especially for left-handed hitters such as Tapia. Therefore, it’s not surprising that the 20-year-old has done most of his damage at home this season, with a robust .362/.396/.549 batting line, nine home runs and 15 doubles in 57 games. That being said, he’s still held his own on the road with a .299/.372/.374 batting line and 14 doubles, but it obviously pales it comparison to his production in Asheville. Overall, Tapia is batting .331/.384/.464 with 39 extra-base hits, 81 runs 67 RBI and 29 stolen bases this season through 111 games.
Aug 18 - 4:55 PM

Rockies optioned 1B Ben Paulsen to Triple-A Colorado Springs.

Paulsen served as the Rockies' 26th man for Sunday's doubleheader against the Reds, going 1-for-4 in the night game. He will likely be brought back up in September.
