The Rockies have placed 34-year old righty swinging RF Michael Cuddyer on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to May 9th, due to an inflamed cervical disc. Cuddyer has played in 31 games for the Rockies so far this year and he is 38 for 119 (.319 avg, .963 OPS) with 18 runs scored, 7 homers, 23 RBIs and 3 stolen bases. The Rockies have called up 26-year old lefty swinging outfielder Charlie Blackmon to replace Cuddyer on the active roster. Blackmon played in 31 games in AAA-ball this year for the Rockies and he was 37 for 110 (.336 avg, .997 OPS) with 35 runs scored, 3 homers, 21 RBIs and 5 stolen bases. Blackmon has played in 69 games in his first two years with the Rockies and he is 57 of 211 (.270 avg, .659 OPS) with 24 runs scored, 3 homers, 17 RBIs and 6 stolen bases. Blackmon will do a solid job with the Rockies, but they are going to miss Cuddyer’s power bat.
