Rockies' Noel Cuevas: Receives call to big leagues, starting Sunday
Cuevas was recalled from Triple-A Albuquerque and is starting in right field and batting eighth Sunday against the Cubs, Jenny Cavnar of AT&T SportsNet Rocky Mountain reports.
Cuevas, a 26-year-old minor-league outfielder, is set to make his major-league debut Sunday after earning a promotion due to his impressive .333/.419/.571 slash line over 74 plate appearances with Albuquerque this season. Gerardo Parra will begin serving his four-game suspension Sunday, and Carlos Gonzalez (hamstring) was placed on the disabled list, so Cuevas could see extended playing time over the next few days. He probably doesn't warrant a pickup in most mixed formats, though.
