The Colorado Rockies will be without power hitting outfielder Michael Cuddyer for two weeks with a neck injury. Cuddyer was great in April with a .313 average, 5 homers and 18 RBI in 96 ABs. He has been even better in May with 8 hits, 2 home runs and 5 RBI in just 23 ABs, a .348 average. Cuddyer has not played since May 8th. Colorado called up Charlie Blackmon who was a member of the Top AAA Hitters last week. He provided instant offense for the Rockies on Sunday, in a 8-2 win over the St. Louis Cardinals, with 2 hits including a home run, 2 runs scored and 2 RBI batting 8th. He is a very valuable player for NL only leagues.
If you need to replace Cuddyer with a player not on your roster already, please refer to the Austin Jackson Injury post.
