"I'm on track for Friday," Cuddyer said. "I'm sure I'll do a rehab assignment, just to see how it feels. Today was the best I felt. It's definitely gotten better every day. Two days after I got the shot, it started getting better."
The Rockies miss Cuddyer's production. He was batting .319 with seven home runs and 23 RBIs through 31 games before going to the DL.
