Michael Cuddyer hits 15-day disabled list with neck injury

2 Comments

Rockies right fielder Michael Cuddyer has not appeared in a game since Wednesday because of discomfort in his neck. And now it will be at least another 10 days before we see him again.

Cuddyer was placed on the 15-day disabled list with what is officially being called an inflamed cervical disc. The move was made retroactive to May 9, so Cuddyer will be eligible for activation late next week.

Charlie Blackmon was recalled from Triple-A Colorado Springs to provide needed outfield depth.

Cuddyer, 34, was hitting .319/.383/.580 with seven home runs and 23 RBI through 31 games played.
