Rockies put OF Cuddyer, RHP Butler on 15-day DL

DENVER (AP) - The Colorado Rockies have put outfielder Michael Cuddyer and right-hander Eddie Butler on the 15-day disabled list and selected the contract of right-hander Christian Bergman.

Bergman is scheduled to start Monday night's game against Atlanta in his major league debut.

Cuddyer is out because of a strained left shoulder and Butler has inflammation in his right rotator cuff.

This is Cuddyer's second stint on the DL after missing 28 games with a strained left hamstring. He is hitting .317 with five home runs this season.

The 23-year-old Butler allowed six runs and 10 hits in 5 1-3 innings in his major league debut during Friday's 7-2 loss to the Dodgers.

Bergman was 4-4 with a 3.84 ERA in 12 starts for Triple-A Colorado Springs.

The Rockies also recalled righty Chad Bettis from Triple-A and designated reliever Wilton Lopez for assignment.
