The injuries have been piling up for the Rockies, and one of their latest may have ended the injured party’s season. Michael Cuddyer, placed on the DL over the weekend due to an oblique strain, could be done for the year:
“There is a possibility,” Rockies manager Jim Tracy said Sunday when asked if Cuddyer is done. “I won’t (say) that’s completely the case, but I won’t rule it out, either.”
Cuddyer is batting .260/.317/.489 with 16 home runs and 58 RBI in 101 games this year, the first of a three year deal. Given that the Rockies aren’t playing for anything but pride for the next month and change, no sense in rushing him back.
