Michael Cuddyer 1B/RF COL 2 Months

Cuddyer (hamstring) was activated from the 15-day DL on Monday. He'll be in the lineup at first base Monday against the Mets, batting in the cleanup spot for the Rockies.

In a season chock-full of health issues, Cuddyer's most-recent injury qualifies as one of the lesser concerns, as he missed only the minimum 15 days on account of the hamstring issue. During the few occasions in which he's been healthy this season, Cuddyer has shown that his NL batting title campaign of 2013 was no fluke, batting .331 with six homers over his 130 at-bats. With the 35-year-old set to become a free agent after the season, a productive, injury-free September could help him land a favorable new contract in the winter.

Cuddyer (hamstring) is set to return from the disabled list Tuesday against the Mets, Patrick Saunders of the Denver Post reports.

Cuddyer hasn't seen game action since a pinch hit appearance back on Aug. 23, but will make his return early this week. Fantasy owners considering adding him in their weekly lineups may want to exercise a wait-and-see approach, as it's unclear how much playing time the 35-year-old will see upon his return. With Cuddyer set to hit free agency after a disappointing season and the Rockies out of contention, they may elect to award more reps to their younger players.

Cuddyer (hamstring) said he's feeling good and is expected to come off the DL when eligible Sept. 7, the Associated Press reports.

Hamstring and shoulder woes have limited Cuddyer to just 34 games this season, cooling any possible trade market for the outfielder. With Cuddyer set to become a free agent in the offseason and the Rockies unlikely to bring him back, he could see a reduction in at-bats over the final few weeks, as the team looks to give more starts to players that are larger factors in the team's future plans.

Cuddyer hoped to return to the lineup Sunday, and did record a plate appearance Saturday, but it appears something went wrong. He will now head to the disabled list instead, and because of the appearance in Saturday's contest, won't be eligible to return until Sept. 7.

He took swings in the cage and did some fielding drills before Saturday's game to test his injured left hamstring, but he will still sit out his fourth game in a row with the injury. Consider him day-to-day, and a possibility to start Sunday.

Cuddyer (hamstring) expects to return to the lineup Friday against the Marlins, Patrick Saunders of the Denver Post reports.

Cuddyer was scratched Tuesday due to a bout of left hamstring soreness and he's out of the lineup Wednesday, but the 35-year-old said that he will be available off the bench. Further, Cuddyer believes Thursday's off day will provide sufficient rest for him to be able to return to the lineup.

A late scratch from Tuesday's lineup with left hamstring soreness, Cuddyer will sit again Wednesday as Brandon Barnes steps in at right field. Cuddyer is listed on the lineup card as a reserve and will be afforded another day of rest with the team off Thursday, but a return for Friday's opener against Miami is by no means a lock.
