Michael Cuddyer sees boost in value with return near


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/19/2014) Given that he's already on a rehab assignment, having played three innings at first base for Triple-A Colorado Springs Sunday, Michael Cuddyer probably won't be on the DL much longer. In fact, he's projected to return Tuesday against the Giants.

It probably goes without saying, but because he's so close to returning, now wouldn't be the time to drop him and free up his DL slot for someone else. But it's an interesting philosophical question with another round of players going on the DL this weekend: How much does projected timetable factor in to a player's stashability?

Naturally, the higher-end players are worth a longer wait, but how far you go with it is a matter of debate. In ranking the top 30 DL players to stash in the Fantasy Baseball Today blog, I may have gone further than most. Even with his return imminent, Cuddyer checks in at only No. 13, behind both Bryce Harper and Jay Bruce, who are still weeks away.

And he's pretty high-end himself.


Michael Cuddyer plays three innings at first base Sunday


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(5/13/2014) The Rockies could get two big bats back in the lineup in the next week, as Michael Cuddyer (hamstring) and Wilin Rosario (illness) make progress in their returns from the disabled list.

 Both Cuddyer and Rosario will spend the remainder of this week playing in extended spring training games, with an eye on returning for next week's series against the Giants. Both players may need some time at Triple-A Colorado Springs, but that will all depend on how they feel in Arizona, manager Walt Weiss told the Denver Post.

"We'll see how they get through the at-bats in Arizona and go from there," Weiss said.

Michael Cuddyer doesn't expect long rehab


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Michael Cuddyer could begin running this weekend


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
