Player Notes
John Axford struck out three of the five batters he faced in the ninth Thursday to pick up a save against the Nationals.

Advice: The Rockies decided to restore Axford to the closer's role in the hopes of getting a prospect back for him before the end of the month. It doesn't really matter, since they're going nowhere slow, but Axford didn't exactly earn his job back.

Rockies manager Walt Weiss announced Tuesday that John Axford will return to ninth-inning duties.

Advice: Axford allowed three earned runs in an appearance last week against the Mets and owns a hideous 9.75 ERA in 12 innings since the All-Star break, but the Rockies are desperate. The closer role in Colorado will likely remain a mess for the rest of the 2015 season.
