The Colorado Rockies have activated outfielder/first baseman Michael Cuddyer from the fifteen-day disabled list, reports Troy Renck of The Denver Post:

To make room on their roster for Cuddyer, the Rockies optioned first baseman/outfielder Matt McBride to Triple-A.

Prior to last night’s start, Cuddyer had been out of the Rockies lineup since the end of July with an oblique injury. He went one-for-four last night with a home run and two RBIs.

Colorado signed Cuddyer to a three-year, $31.5 million contract this off-season. The 33-year-old has hit .260/.317/.486 with thirty doubles and fifteen home runs this year.

McBride made his major league debut earlier this season and has appeared in nine games for the Rockies, collecting four hits, including a double, over twenty at-bats. The 27-year-old has also hit .354/.380/.561 with thirty-six doubles and ten home runs over 367 at-bats with Colorado’s Triple-A affiliate.
