The Colorado Rockies placed OF Michael Cuddyer (shoulder) on the 15-day day disabled list with a left shoulder strain Monday, June 9. SP Eddie Butler (shoulder) was also put on the DL with right rotator cuff inflammation. In corresponding moves, the team recalled SP Christian Bergman and RP Chad Bettis from Triple-A Colorado Springs and designated RP Wilton Lopez for assignment.
Fantasy Tip: This is Cuddyer's second trip to the DL this year. This time, some combination of Drew Stubbs and Brandon Barnes should fill in for Cuddyer with Carlos Gonzalez (finger, knee) also sidelined. Stubbs and Barnes are short-term candidates for an addition as NL-only outfield depth.

Colorado Rockies RP Wilton Lopez has corrected a flaw in his delivery that took away the downward action on his sinker, and he has seven strikeouts and no walks this spring. Lopez is being reminded to stay balanced in his delivery, which means he's not tilting back as he lifts his leg. "He's got much better sink and his changeup is going straight down, and it's tied into his delivery," pitching coach Jim Wright said. "He's been pitch-efficient. He's had the kind of outings we want to see out of him."

Colorado Rockies RP Matt Belisle is excited about the increased competition heading into the season. The team added several arms to the back end of the bullpen during the offseason. Belisle, who is just one of two pitchers to appear more than 70 times in each of the past four seasons, will compete with RPs Wilton Lopez and Adam Ottavino for a role in the bullpen from the right side. Belisle expressed that he is "extremely fortunate" that manager Walt Weiss shows confidence in him. He also said that many of his late-season struggles came from predictable patterns, especially against familiar hitters. He plans to use his changeup to combat that.
