The move is retroactive to April 18. The team recalled infielder Charlie Culberson from Triple-A Colorado Springs to take Cuddyer's roster spot.
"It's slow, but I'm still out there and I'm still trying to push through it," Cuddyer said of his recovery, via MLB.com. "It feels okay. Not great, but not terrible either."
Cuddyer, the National League's batting champion last season, is batting .317 with three home runs and 10 RBI in 16 games this season for the Rockies, who are 10-10. SI.COM STAFF: MLB Power Rankings: Athletics storm to No. 1, Mariners plummet
