Cuddyer said Friday that the hamstring injury was not serious, but he hadn’t made much progress and the Rockies needed a spot for Bergman, who is the starting pitcher for Sunday’s series finale against the Marlins.
Cuddyer has appeared in just 34 of the Rockies’ 129 games so far in 2014. He is a .305/.361/.517 hitter in 1,075 plate appearances with Colorado, but injuries have derailed what could be his final year with the club.
