      Dodgers' Charlie Culberson: Signs minor league deal with Dodgers

      Culberson signed a minor league contract with the Dodgers on Saturday that includes an invite to spring training, Eric Stephen of SB Nation reports. A back injury forced Culberson to the DL to start the year, and he was outrighted upon activation in June, effectively ending his time with the Rockies. The 26-year-old has seen time at second base, third, short, first, and left field in his three seasons in the majors, but will need to hit in spring training to have any shot at a utility role on this team.

      Rockies move RP John Axford (family leave) off active roster

      The Rockies announced Sunday that they have moved reliever John Axford off their active roster as he deals with a family issue, replacing him with pitcher Scott Oberg, per the Denver Post. Axford's 2-year-old son was bitten by a rattlesnake in Arizona during spring training, and complications have caused the boy to need to be flown to a specialist in Colorado. Axford, who picked up a save Thursday, will miss a minimun of three games and a maximum of seven games. To make room for Oberg, the Rockies moved Charlie Culberson to the 60-day disabled list.

      Rockies option Charlie Culberson to minor leagues

      The Rockies have decided to part ways with third baseman Charlie Culberson and optioned him to Triple-A Tuesday, reports the Denver Post. Culberson missed significant time at the beginning of spring training while dealing with a bulging disc. "The thing with Charlie is, he's very talented. He's got some tools that you don't always see in that role — there's power and speed and defense," manager Walt Weiss said. "It's a matter of tightening things up offensively. But there's a lot to like there."
