Player Notes
Rockies activated RHP John Axford from the 7-day family emergency list.

Advice: Axford should immediately resume his role as closer. This year he's converted 13-of-14 save chances while posting a respectable 2.42 ERA. The Rockies sent Justin Miller to Triple-A Albuquerque to open up a roster spot.

Rockies placed RHP John Axford on the 7-day family emergency list.

Advice: Manager Walt Weiss said that the reliever "just has things to take care of at home." He did note that Axford's son, Jameson, who was bitten by a rattlesnake during spring training, is fine. It's not clear how long Axford will be away. LaTroy Hawkins, Scott Oberg and Tommy Kahnle could be in the mix for saves in Axford's absence.

John Axford was not listed on the Rockies' lineup card prior to Tuesday's game.

Advice: Chris Cotillo of MLBDailyDish.com hears that his absence isn't related to an injury or trade and that the Rockies will "release something soon" about the reliever. Axford had to miss time earlier this season when his son, Jameson, was bitten by a rattlesnake, so hopefully it's not related to that. An update on Axford should come shortly.

John Axford held on Thursday against the Diamondbacks to convert his 13th save of the season.

Advice: The Rockies grabbed a 6-2 lead in the bottom of the eighth inning, so Boone Logan came on for the top of the ninth. However, he allowed the first two batters to reach before Axford was called on to put out the fire. Danny Dorn drove in one run with a ground out and Paul Goldschmidt followed with a sacrifice fly, but Axford was able to strike out Yasmani Tomas swinging to end it. The 32-year-old has had a couple of bumpy outings of late, but he still owns a solid 2.42 ERA through 24 appearances this season.

John Axford took his first blown save and loss after giving up three runs in the ninth versus the Diamondbacks on Wednesday.

Advice: Well, it was bound to happen at some point. Axford allowed three hits and walked two before being yanked with two outs in the ninth, turning a 7-5 lead into an 8-7 deficit. He's 12-for-13 saving games this year, so his job remains quite secure.
