Impending free agent Michael Cuddyer will almost certainly finish his season in a Rockies uniform.
FOX Sports’ Ken Rosenthal reports that the Rockies placed Cuddyer on revocable waivers over the weekend, but pulled him back after he experienced hamstring discomfort. This makes him ineligible to be traded.
Whether the Rockies actually intended to deal Cuddyer or not, it’s a lost opportunity. The 35-year-old would have been an attractive trade target for contenders and likely wouldn’t have made it past the National League on waivers. However, the timing just didn’t work out in this case.
Cuddyer just rejoined the Rockies last week after missing over two months with a left shoulder fracture, but he’s been productive when healthy this year, batting .331/.376/.546 with six home runs and 19 RBI over 33 games.
