Colorado Rockies outfielder Michael Cuddyer was out of the team’s starting lineup last night due to what manager Walt Weiss called a rib strain, according to Owen Perkins of MLB.com. Weiss only said that Cuddyer wasn’t available, he didn’t add a timeframe for return or say that he expected the veteran outfielder back today. Considering it’s another side-related injury, he could be out for a few days. Cuddyer dealt with two oblique injuries last year, costing him most of the final two months of the regular season. The Rockies were carrying four outfielders on their roster, but Carlos Gonzalez had to exit last night’s game due to hamstring and ankle injuries. Jonathan Herrera replaced Gonzalez in left field, while Eric Young Jr. filled in for Cuddyer. The team has also had first baseman Jordan Pacheco shagging balls in the outfield in case of emergency. Cuddyer’s already missed time with a neck injury this year, and he injured his forearm after begin hit by a pitch soon after being activated from the DL. While he’s dealt with his share of injuries, Cuddyer is still having a nice season, hitting .339/.397/.603 with 14 doubles and 10 home runs over 194 plate appearances.
