Colorado Rockies OF Michael Cuddyer (hamstring) doesn't think his hamstring injury is very serious. "We got an MRI done, saw some pictures and it showed that it was strained," Cuddyer said. "It's a minor strain. It's in the tendon area (by the knee) more than it is in the belly of the muscle. I don't know how long it's going to be before I'm back."
Fantasy Tip: Cuddyer should be able to return from the DL when he's eligible. However, he's never had a hamstring injury before, so this might be something that keeps him out for longer than expected. Keep track of his progress in the coming weeks.

Fantasy Tip: The Rockies have options to replace Cuddyer in right field in Culberson, Corey Dickerson and Drew Stubbs. Expect Dickerson to benefit the most, but the at-bats probably won't be consistent enough for mixed leaguers.
