The Rockies announced on Monday that outfielder Michael Cuddyer has been placed on the 15-day disabled list with a strained left hamstring. The move was made retroactive to April 18.

Cuddyer, the 2013 NL batting champ, is off to a strong start in this, his age-35 season: .317/.373/.533 (132 OPS+) with three home runs in 16 games. For his career, Cuddyer, a two-time All-Star, owns an OPS+ of 113 across parts of 14 big-league seasons.

To take Cuddyer's spot on the active roster, the Rockies have recalled infielder Charlie Culberson.
