From beat writer Patrick Saunders of the Denver Post comes word that the Rockies have placed Michael Cuddyer on the 15-day disabled list because of a strained right oblique and recalled right-handed reliever Edgmer Escalona in a corresponding 25-man roster move to take the outfielder’s place.

Cuddyer’s disabling was made retroactive to August 1, so he will be eligible to return in under two weeks.

The 33-year-old has posted a .260/.317/.486 batting line with 15 home runs, 30 doubles and 56 RBI through his first 395 plate appearances with last-place Colorado. He signed a three-year, $31.5 million free agent contract back in December.

    Good player, bad contract
    Should have traded him, but I guess they are keeping him around to be part of the….what exactly are the Rockies doing again?

      EXACTLY!!!!!! What are they? Who are they? No…. WHY are they?

      Too bad the REST of the team can’t go on DL and put Colorado out of it’s misery!!!

      Waive the white flag already and give it up.

      It’s doubtful that Mr. O’Dowd actually knows how to spell C-O-M-P-E-T-E

      Never seen a franchise soooooo engrossed and embedded in perenial ineptitude at every level!!!

    Miss Cuddy in MN. He was good for clubhouse morale. Pretty much played every position except catcher and the one he was drafted as – shortstop.
