Rockies Vs. Cardinals Lineup: Michael Cuddyer Gets Day Off

The Colorado Rockies are giving right fielder Michael Cuddyer a day off as they face the St. Louis Cardinals on Wednesday night. In his place, the Rockies have Tyler Colvin taking over in right field with Dexter Fowler covering center.

Colvin continues to get an expanded role in Colorado as he thrives playing in the thin air of Coors Field. He's flashing his typically terrible strikeout and walk numbers, but he's hitting .304/.333/.601 overall with 10 doubles, five triples and 10 homers in 180 plate appearances.

Here's the Rockies' lineup:

1. Dexter Fowler (CF)
2. Marco Scutaro (2B)
3. Carlos Gonzalez (LF)
4. Tyler Colvin (RF)
5. Todd Helton (1B)
6. Chris Nelson (3B)
7. Wil Nieves (C)
8. Jonathan Herrera (SS)
9. Jeremy Guthrie (SP)

And the Cardinals' lineup:

1. Rafael Furcal (SS)
2. Jon Jay (CF)
3. Matt Holliday (LF)
4. Carlos Beltran (RF)
5. Allen Craig (1B)
6. Yadier Molina (C)
7. David Freese (3B)
8. Skip Schumaker (2B)
9. Adam Wainwright (SP)
