Michael Cuddyer Injury Update: Rockies OF Faces Potential Early End To Season

Injuries, among a rash of other things, have been derailing the season for the Colorado Rockies in 2012. Michael Cuddyer is the latest to land on the injury list for the Rockies, and the oblique injury that sidelined him could leave him off the squad for the rest of the season.

Patrick Saunders of the Denver Post reported that Cuddyer's season could be over on Sunday, quoting manager Jim Tracy:

"There is a possible out that," Tracy said. "I won't rule it in that that's completely the case but I won't rule it out either. That's as far as I will go with it."

Cuddyer was also quoted, and unsurprisingly he is not too happy with the return of the nagging injury:

"It's beyond frustrating," Cuddyer said Saturday night following the Rockies' 6-5 loss to the Marlins. "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 ..."

Recent call up Andrew Brown will be tasked with taking the roster spot that Cuddyer left behind when injured for the Rockies as they head into the final stretch of their season.
