Michael Cuddyer hits DL for 3rd time
Bergman will start Sunday against Miami after missing 51 games with a broken left hand. His last start was June 20 against Milwaukee.
The team also transferred Carlos Gonzalez (knee) to the 60-day DL.
This has been a frustrating season for Cuddyer, who's making his third trip to the DL this season. The NL batting champion also was out with a strained left hamstring and missed more than two months with a fractured left shoulder.
The 35-year-old Cuddyer has played in 34 games and is hitting .331. He became the seventh Colorado player to hit for the cycle, on Aug. 17 against Cincinnati.
