by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

No reservations about starting Michael Cuddyer


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(8/18/2014) 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.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

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.
