The Colorado Rockies have placed outfielder/first baseman Michael Cuddyer on the fifteen-day disabled list with a right oblique strain, the team has announced:

To replace Cuddyer on their roster, the Rockies have recalled outfielder Andrew Brown from Triple-A.

Cuddyer aggravated the right oblique injury that kept him out for the first half of the month of August during the ninth inning of Saturday’s contest against the Miami Marlins. The 33-year-old was able to suit up for only three gamesbefore returning to the DL.

Over 358 at-bats for the Rockies, Cuddyer has hit .260/.317/.489 with thirty doubles, two triples and sixteen home runs.

Brown has appeared in eleven games this season for the Rockies, collecting five hits, including two doubles, over twenty-four at-bats. The 27-year-old has spent most of the season with the club’s Triple-A affiliate, where he’s hit .308/.364/.597 with thirty-three doubles and twenty-four home runs.
