Worth noting

• Rockies outfielder Michael Cuddyer, slowed by a right oblique strain, did exercises and swung in the batting cage before Friday night's game with the Giants. Tracy said he expected Cuddyer, who last played Tuesday, to be available for pinch-hit duty Friday night and hoped he could start Saturday.

• Infielder Chris Nelson, on the disabled list since July 17 with an irregular heartbeat, went 3-for-4 with a double for Triple-A Colorado Springs on Thursday in a 7-4 victory over Iowa.
