DENVER -- Rockies veteran Michael Cuddyer, who missed his 10th game Tuesday night with a right oblique strain, began an injury rehab assignment at Triple-A Colorado Springs on Tuesday night.

He went 4-for-4, including a home run, a double and three RBIs in the Sky Sox's 12-9 victory over Albuquerque. The plan is for Cuddyer to play for Colorado Springs again Wednesday, and join the Rockies on Thursday for the opener of a four-game set with the Marlins.

The Rockies will make sure the oblique can handle the stress of swinging or from sudden movements before activating Cuddyer from the 15-day disabled list.
