News: The Colorado Rockies have placed Cuddyer on the disabled list with a strained left hamstring, and they have activated right-hander Christian Bergman. Impact: This has been a frustrating season for Cuddyer, who's making his third trip to the DL this season. The NL batting champion also was out with a strained left hamstring and missed more than two months with a fractured left shoulder. (STATS, 3:58pm)

News: Cuddyer (hamstring) landed on the 15-day disabled list Sunday, Jenny Cavnar of ROOT Sports reports. Impact: Cuddyer hoped to return to the lineup Sunday, and did record a plate appearance Saturday in a pinch-hitting capacity, but it appears something went wrong along the way. He will now head to the DL instead, and because of the appearance in Saturday's contest, he won't be eligible to return until Sept. 7. The injury is one of a lengthy list of ailments that have caused him to miss a large portion of the season. The 35-year-old has played in just 34 games for the Rockies, and his persistent health issues may make manager Walt Weiss reluctant to use him on an everyday basis once he returns from the DL.(RotoWire, )

News: Cuddyer (hamstring) hopes to play Sunday, MLB.com's Thomas Harding reports. Impact: He took swings in the cage and did some fielding drills before Saturday's game to test his injured left hamstring, but he'll still sit out his fourth game in a row with the injury. Consider him day-to-day and a possibility to start Sunday.(RotoWire, )

News: Cuddyer (hamstring) remains out of the starting lineup Saturday. Impact: Cuddyer wasn't cleared to play Friday, and the expectation is that he'll be held out until Sunday at the earliest. Brandon Barnes will start in right field for the Rockies on Saturday night.(RotoWire, )

News: Cuddyer (hamstring) is not expected to play Saturday, Nick Groke of the Denver Post reports. Impact: The training staff did not clear Cuddyer to return to the lineup Friday due to swelling in his hamstring, and he is not expected to receive clearance until Sunday at the earliest. However, Cuddyer did say that his hamstring is improving and was adamant that he will not go back on the DL.(RotoWire, )

News: Cuddyer (hamstring) remains out of the lineup Friday against the Marlins, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports. Impact: While Cuddyer said that he expected to return to the lineup Friday after a two-game absence, he was not cleared due to swelling in his hamstring. The 35-year-old did indicate that he's getting better, suggesting a trip back to the DL is not imminent, but it's uncertain whether he'll be available in any capacity the rest of the weekend. Charlie Blackmon will start in right field Friday.(RotoWire, )

News: Cuddyer (hamstring) expects to return to the lineup Friday against the Marlins, Patrick Saunders of the Denver Post reports. Impact: Cuddyer was scratched Tuesday due to a bout of left hamstring soreness and he's out of the lineup Wednesday, but the 35-year-old said that he will be available off the bench. Further, Cuddyer believes Thursday's off day will provide sufficient rest for him to be able to return to the lineup.(RotoWire, )

News: Cuddyer (hamstring) is out of the lineup Wednesday against the Royals. Impact: A late scratch from Tuesday's lineup with left hamstring soreness, Cuddyer will sit again Wednesday as Brandon Barnes steps in at right field. Cuddyer is listed on the lineup card as a reserve and will be afforded another day of rest with the team off Thursday, but a return for Friday's opener against Miami is by no means a lock.(RotoWire, )

News: Cuddyer was scratched from Tuesday's lineup due to left hamstring soreness. Impact: Cuddyer made an impact immediately upon his reinstatement from the DL over the weekend, hitting for the cycle in Game 2 of Sunday's doubleheader, but the decision to play him in both games of the twin bill was perhaps short-sighted. He's already dealing with a sore hamstring. Charlie Blackmon will move to right field as Drew Stubbs mans center and bats second against right-hander James Shields.(RotoWire, )

News: Cuddyer went 5 for 10 with a home run in Sunday's doubleheader. Impact: It was his first action in more than two months, so this is a promising sign for owners who held onto him.(STATS, 6:59pm)
Mon. Aug 18, 2014
News: Cuddyer (shoulder) went a collective 5-for-10 in his return from the DL for Sunday's doubleheader with the Reds, hitting for the cycle in Game 2. He finished the day with three RBI and four runs scored. Impact: Cuddyer was activated from the DL on Saturday and was set to reenter the lineup, before a water main break near Coors Field resulted in the contest being postponed a day. Despite having his return from the left shoulder fracture temporarily delayed, Cuddyer appeared to be no worse for the wear, collecting a two-run double in the Rockies' five-run eighth inning to become the first Colorado hitter to record the cycle since Carlos Gonzalez turned the trick on July 31, 2010. Now healthy, Cuddyer should remain a fixture in the lineup in right field, likely relegating either Charlie Blackmon or Drew Stubbs to more frequent bench duty.(RotoWire, )
