The Rockies put Michael Cuddyer and Eddie Butler on the D.L., Cargo to have surgery on finger

  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.

   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.
