Ottavino seeking opinions; Axford, Betancourt could close for Rockies
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Rockies closer Adam Ottavino, who could be facing Tommy John surgery, is expected to receive "another opinion or two" on his injured right elbow, manager Walt Weiss told MLB Network Radio on Wednesday.

"Tough news for us and tough news for Adam, we still are getting another opinion or two, but doesn't look great," Weiss said.

Ottavino was placed on the 15-day DL last week with a right triceps injury. Weiss indicated that John Axford and Rafael Betancourt are two options for the Rockies in the ninth inning in Ottavino's absence.

"We have Axford and he's closed a lot of games in this league," Weiss said. "We still have Betancourt as well"

Rockies to decide on Adam Ottavino's elbow on Monday
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

Rockies closer Adam Ottavino will meet with the team's medical director on Monday, to learn the treatment plan for his triceps and elbow injury. 

Ottavino is on the 15-day disabled list with an inflamed tricepts tendon, but an MRI last week showed the inflammation continues into the elbow, raising the concern that Tommy John surgery may be required. 

"Nobody has said anything concretely about anything," Ottavino said, per MLB.com. "Until you are evaluated by a doctor … Those are the people who make those calls."

John Axford is filling in as closer. He has three saves and hasn't allowed a run, although with the Rockies in the midst of a five-game losing streak, he hasn't taken the mound since April 27.

Rockies place Adam Ottavino on DL, activate David Hale
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

The Rockies placed closer Adam Ottavino on the 15-day disabled list Monday due to right triceps inflammation, the team announced.

Ottavino has been brilliant over the first three weeks of the season, giving up just three hits and two walks in 10 scoreless innings while striking out 13 and recording three saves. Rockies reliever John Axford picked up a save Thursday and could be in line for more ninth-inning work in the wake of Ottavino's injury.

The team reinstated pitcher David Hale from the 15-day disabled list Monday and optioned him to Triple-A Albuquerque. He opened the season on the disabled list due to an oblique injury.

To take Ottavino's spot on the active roster, the team recalled pitcher Jorge Rondon from Albuquerque.

Rockies reliever John Axford nails down second save
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Getting a rare chance to nail down a victory, Rockies right-hander John Axford did just that Thursday against visiting San Diego.

Axford walked Yonder Alonso with one out, but struck out Will Venable and Alexi Amarista to make the one-run lead stand up and earn his second save.

He was subbing Thursday for closer Adam Ottavino, who has given up just one hit in 8 1/3 shutout innings this year, but was given the day off by Walt Weiss.

"I wanted to stay off Otto," Weiss told the Denver Post.
