McMahon went 3-for-4 with a pair of homers, two runs and five RBI to help the Rockies to a 6-2 victory over the Phillies on Thursday. Making his first start after getting activated from the injured list with an elbow injury, McMahon provided most of the offense for Colorado in this game with this monster, two-homer, five-RBI effort. He boosted his slash line to a healthy .276/.364/.552 with the performance, and with Daniel Murphy (finger) still without a timetable for a return, McMahon is in line to continue to see regular work for the time being.
McMahon (elbow) was activated from the 10-day injured list Thursday. As expected, McMahon is back with the big club after a brief stay on the shelf with an elbow sprain. The 24-year-old apparently looked healthy during an extended spring training game earlier in the week and should immediately reclaim his role on the strong side of a platoon. Prior to landing on the shelf, McMahon was slashing .200/.310/.240 with a home run through seven games. Josh Fuentes was optioned to Triple-A Albuquerque in a corresponding move.
McMahon (elbow) has returned to Denver and could be activated for Thursday's game versus the Phillies, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports. McMahon returned to game action at extended spring training Tuesday and apparently looked healthy enough to rejoin the team. The 24-year-old will be re-evaluated Thursday and if things go as planned should be activated off the injured list.

McMahon (elbow) was placed on the 10-day injured list Saturday with a left elbow strain. McMahon sustained the strain Friday when he hyperextended his left elbow on a play at first base.

Mark Reynolds and Pat Valaika figure to see an increased workload at first base with Daniel Murphy (finger) also on the injured list.
