Charlie Blackmon Injury Update: Rockies Activate OF, Option Him To Colorado Springs

The Colorado Rockies announced on Saturday afternoon that outfielder Charlie Blackmon has been activated from the 15-day disabled list and optioned down to the Triple-A Colorado Springs Sky Sox. Blackmon had been on the disabled list due to turf toe on his left big toe.

Blackmon had been in the mix for the Rockies' fourth outfielder spot, but the injury ended any chance of that. With the loss of outfielder Tim Wheeler to a hamate bone injury for at least month, the Sky Sox needed an extra outfielder, making Blackmon his replacement on the roster.

Blackmon appeared in 27 games for the Rockies during the 2011 season, hitting .255/.277/.296 before a right foot fracture in early July sent him to the 60-day disabled list and ended his season.
