The Colorado Rockies place Dexter Fowler on the D.L.

The Rockies have placed 27-year old switch-hitting CF Dexter Fowler on the 15-day disabled list due to a right wrist injury.  Fowler played in 18 games in June for the Rockies and he was 20 for 65 (.308 avg, .884 OPS) with 13 runs scored, 2 homers, 7 RBIs and 3 stolen bases.  Fowler hasn’t played in about a week due to his wrist problem, so it made sense to D.L. him.  Fowler has played in 70 games overall this year for the Rockies and he is 75 of 258 (.291 avg, .863 OPS) with 49 runs scored, 10 homers, 26 RBIs and 12 stolen bases.  The Rockies hope that Fowler will only miss a couple of weeks.

Michael Cuddyer is red hot at the plate for the Colorado Rockies right now

34-year old righty swinging RF/1B Michael Cuddyer is on fire at the plate right now for the Colorado Rockies.  Cuddyer has a 27-game hitting streak going on right now.  He has played in 62 games overall this year for the Rockies and he is 84 for 244 (.344 avg, .983 OPS) with 38 runs scored, 14 homers, 48 RBIs and 6 stolen bases.  It’s amazing to me that as hot as Cuddyer has been, he’s still not even half way to Joe DiMaggio’s all-time record of a 56-game hitting streak.  That being said, the Rockies need Cuddyer to keep raking at the plate.
