Rockies Injury Update: Michael Cuddyer still out with hamstring issue

By on 8/22/2014 07:45:00 PM

The Colorado Rockies have had a dismal 2014 season in which they are 26 games below .500 at 50-76. Despite scoring the second most runs in the Major Leagues, the Rockies haven't been able to overcome a pitching staff that is 30th in ERA at 4.98. Injuries have also been an issue, as eight players are currently on the DL, with five on the 60-day DL. One key player that has missed much of the season is outfielder Michael Cuddyer, who has missed the last couple days due to a hamstring injury.

Our own Darius Austin reported yesterday that Cuddyer, who hit for the cycle on Sunday, had to sit on Tuesday and Wednesday due to tightness in his hamstring. At the time, it was thought that Cuddyer would be ready to play tonight.

It appears the Cuddyer is healing slower than expected, as reported by Thomas Harding, who covers the Rockies for
Cuddyer, in his 14th Major League season, is batting .331 with six home runs and 19 RBI in 33 games. He lead the league in hitting last year with 20 home runs, 84 RBI and a .331 average.  In 1,403 career games, Cuddyer has a batting average of .278 with 183 home runs and 741 RBI.
