The Colorado Rockies announced today that first baseman Michael Cuddyer is scheduled to start a rehabilitation assignment with the Colorado Springs Sky Sox today, Tuesday, August 14 as the Sky Sox take on the Albuquerque Isotopes, the Triple-A affiliate of the Los Angeles Dodgers, in a 6:05 PM start at Security Service Field.
Cuddyer, 32, has been on the disabled list since August 4 with a strained right oblique and will be making his first appearance since the injury.

This will be Cuddyer’s first ever appearance in a Sky Sox uniform since signing with the Rockies this past offseason. Coming into this season, Cuddyer had played 11 seasons with the Minnesota Twins and was a career .272 (1,106-for-4,072) hitter with 141 homers, 239 doubles, 580 RBI and 606 runs scored.
