The Rockies have activated pitcher Tyler Anderson from the disabled list. The 27-year old was placed on the 60-day disabled list for left-knee inflammation. His last major league start was on June 25th.
The south-paw made some significant strides while in Triple-A, including an increase in his velocity, prompting his return.
