Michael Cuddyer Injury Update: Rockies OF Goes On Disabled List With Oblique Issue

Michael Cuddyer is headed back to the 15-day disabled list after re-aggravating his oblique injury in Saturday night's loss to Miami, the Colorado Rockies announced on Sunday. Cuddyer only returned to the club Thursday after a previous disabled list stint, but was again injured during his third at-bat Saturday.

"It's beyond frustrating. I felt so good. Felt good on the rehab. Felt good the past two days. Felt good my first two at-bats. Then one swing..."

Andrew Brown has been called up from Triple-A Colorado Springs and will replace Cuddyer. The team expects Carlos Gonzalez to return Tuesday, after a brief absence following the death of his grandfather.

Cuddyer has hit .260 with 16 home runs and 58 RBI this season. The longtime Minnesota Twin joined the Rockies this offseason as the club's most expensive free agent in more than a decade.
