Michael Cuddyer Placed On Disabled List With Hamstring Strain

Michael Cuddyer Rockies

The Colorado Rockies announced today that the club has activated right-handed pitcher Christian Bergman from the 60-day disabled list. In addition, the club has placed outfielder Michael Cuddyer on the 15-day disabled list and transferred outfielder Carlos Gonzalez to the 60-day disabled list.

Cuddyer said Friday that the hamstring injury was not serious, but he hadn’t made much progress and the Rockies needed a spot for Bergman, who is the starting pitcher for Sunday’s series finale against the Marlins.

Michael Cuddyer has appeared in just 34 games for Colorado so far in 2014.
