DENVER (AP) - The Colorado Rockies activated Michael Cuddyer from the 15-day disabled list and have him in the lineup at first base against the Miami Marlins.

Cuddyer, who missed 11 games because of a strained right oblique, is hitting .260 with 15 home runs and 56 RBIs in 98 games in his first season with the Rockies.

Cuddyer was 6 for 9 with one home run and three RBIs in two rehab starts for Triple-A Colorado Springs this week.
