As first relayed by Troy Renck of the Denver Post, the Rockies have activated Michael Cuddyer from the disabled list and optioned Matt McBride back to Triple-A Colorado Springs to clear a roster spot.
Cuddyer missed just 15 days with a strained oblique. He’s batting fourth in the Rockies’ lineup and playing first base on Thursday evening against the Marlins.
The 33-year-old has batted .260/.317/.486 with 15 home runs and 56 RBI across 385 plate appearances since signing a three-year, $31.5 million free agent contract with Colorado this past offseason.
McBride went 4-for-20 (.200) with seven strikeouts and zero walks during his nine-game stay in the bigs.
