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.
