Colorado Rockies SP John Axford had his contract selected by the team Sunday, March 1. The move puts Axford on the 40-man roster. To make room for Axford, SP Tyler Chatwood (elbow) went to the 60-day disabled list.
Fantasy Tip: In all essence Axford has made the team and will pick up a $2.6 million salary. Axford could be a sleeper candidate in Colorado, but he should still go lower in most NL and mixed drafts given his shaky history and the fact he's pitching in Denver.

Colorado Rockies SP Tyler Chatwood (elbow) will undergo Tommy John surgery and miss the rest of the year, according to a major league source. He'll likely have the procedure sometime next week, and he'll likely miss most, if not all, of next year. Chatwood went 1-0 with a 4.34 ERA in four starts this season. It'll be Chatwood's second Tommy John surgery.
Fantasy Tip: The Rockies' rotation really takes a hit with this news. It's good news for Brett Anderson and Jair Jurrjens, though, as Jhoulys Chacin is also likely out for the year, and Jordan Lyles remains on the DL. Anderson and Jurrjens should be owned in NL leagues if you're in need of starting pitching.
