Last year, the effect of outfielder/first baseman Michael Cuddyer on the Rockies was muted. An oblique strain in July and a lengthy adjustment to the National League after he spent 11 years with the Twins slowed the veteran slugger. This year, Cuddyer is flying, to the tune of a .333 average with seven home runs, eight doubles and 24 RBIs going into Tuesday night's opener of a three-game set with the Yankees at Coors Field.
