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.

David Hale pitches well in likely final start for now


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Hale ran into some early trouble as the Mets went up 1-0 in the first inning on David Wright's RBI groundout. New York took a 2-0 lead on Dan Uggla's fielding error in the second inning.

Atlanta took a 3-2 lead in the fifth inning, but New York was able to tie the game in the sixth inning on another fielding error by Uggla.

The Braves are expecting Mike Minor (shoulder) to rejoin the rotation Saturday against the Reds, which would be Hale's next turn through the rotation. There has been no official word yet of Hale being removed from the rotation, but it seems likely with how well Aaron Harang is pitching. Hale has a 2.93 ERA through three starts.


Braves contemplating rotation for near-future


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/19/2014) Gavin Floyd or David Hale could be the odd man out when all shakes out for the sizzling Braves starting rotation, which boasts a major-league best 1.47 ERA this season.

Floyd gave up four earned runs in 4 2/3 innings in a rehab appearancce Friday for Double-A Mississippi. He will likely require at least two more rehab starts before he is ready to return.

Hale owns a 2.89 ERA in two starts for the Braves, but might be the most likely to be on the outside looking in once Floyd returns.
