Player Notes
John Axford picked up his second save of the season on Thursday with a scoreless ninth inning, polishing off the Rockies 2-1 victory over the Padres.

Advice: Regular closer Adam Ottavino was given the day off due to what he described as "usual pitcher's soreness". Axford worked around a one-out walk of Yonder Alonso by striking out Will Venable and Alexi Amarista. Ottavino has been superb as the Rockies' regular closer, but Axford should be expected to perform reasonably well when presented with the odd save chance. Given how few and far between those opportunities will come, though, he's not worth stashing as long as Ottavino is healthy and getting the job done.

John Axford pitched a scoreless eighth inning in his return to the Rockies Wednesday against the Padres.

Advice: It was a quick 10-pitch inning for Axford, with one strikeout mixed in. He could be next in line for saves in Colorado if Adam Ottavino falters, though that's showed no signs of happening.

Thu, Apr 23 Rotoworld
Rockies activated RHP John Axford from the restricted list.

Advice: Axford was away from the club for 10 days to be with his young son Jameson, who got bitten twice by a rattlesnake last month in Arizona. Jameson suffered some nerve damage in his foot but should ultimately be fine.

Wed, Apr 22 Rotoworld
Rockies placed RHP John Axford on the restricted list.

Advice: It's a paper move, as Axford had already been on the family medical emergency list after his son, Jameson, was bitten twice by a rattlesnake. The reliever is eligible to be activated at any time, though it's unclear when it will happen.
