DENVER (AP) -- Michael Cuddyer hopes an awkward tumble at first base doesn't mean another trip to the disabled list.

The Colorado outfielder gingerly walked through the clubhouse Saturday with his sore ribs tightly wrapped. He's yet to swing a bat since his fall while trying to beat out a slow roller during an extra-inning loss to San Diego on Thursday.

The Rockies are giving him a few days to rest and recover before deciding what to do with one of their top hitters.

To buy them time, the team recalled outfielder Tyler Colvin from Triple-A Colorado Springs. That way, the Rockies aren't caught short-handed, especially with left fielder Carlos Gonzalez dealing with a nagging left knee.

Cuddyer was on the DL earlier this season with an inflamed cervical disk.
