|Hamstring forces Michael Cuddyer out Tuesday |
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
(8/19/14) Just a few days back from the disabled list, Rockies outfielder Michael Cuddyer was scratched from Tuesday's lineup with an injury, though it is not related to the shoulder issue that kept him out for more than two months.
Cuddyer was a late scratch from Tuesday's game against the Royals, due to left hamstring soreness. He is day to day moving forward.
|No reservations about starting Michael Cuddyer |
|by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer|
(8/18/14) Michael Cuddyer returned from a six-week absence for a fractured shoulder Sunday and, after going a modest 1 for 5 in the first game of a doubleheader against the Reds, promptly hit for the cycle in the second.
Not only does that tell me he's ready to pick up where he left off, having batted .317 with an .866 in 231 games before the injury, but it also tells me the Rockies have no concerns about his durability coming off the DL. He started both games of a doubleheader, for crying out loud. What other 35-year-old does that?
Maybe saying to start him right away in Fantasy seems like a no-brainer given his overall line and what he did Sunday evening, but given how little he's done this season -- having missed a month earlier in the year with a strained hamstring -- some owners are leery of him.
Go back to the beginning of last season, though, and he's a .331 hitter with a .919 OPS. That pretty much says it all.
|Michael Cuddyer notches second career cycle |
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
(8/18/14) Rockies outfielder Michael Cuddyer notched his second career cycle in Game 2 of a doubleheader against the Reds.
Cuddyer tripled in the first, homered in the sixth, singled in the seventh and lined a double in the eighth inning to complete the cycle. He finished 4 for 5 with three runs scored and three RBI in a 10-5 victory.
Cuddyer became the seventh player to record a cycle in franchise history. He finished with five hits in 10 at-bats at the end of the doubleheader. He is hitting .331 with six homers and 19 RBI in 130 at-bats.
|Michael Cuddyer showed in 2013 that he still has plenty of good baseball left despite reaching his mid-30s. Cuddyer played only 130 games, which was the third straight season he played less than 140 games, but he hit .331 with a .389 on-base percentage, .530 slugging percentage and .919 OPS -- all career highs. Cuddyer also hit 20 homers for the second time in three seasons, surpassed 30 doubles and finished with 84 RBI. And while Cuddyer's numbers at hitter-friendly Coors Field were better than his road splits, he still hit .311 with a .485 slugging percentage away from home. Obviously, there is some concern Cuddyer won't be able to repeat his 2013 stat line in 2014, especially since he had a .382 BABIP last season, which was well above his .312 career BABIP. Still, Cuddyer plays half his games in one of the most hitter-friendly parks in the majors. It might be a stretch for him to play 140 games, but there's not a lot of risk using a mid-to-late-round Fantasy pick on the veteran outfielder.
