The Rockies have activated closer John Axford from the family medical emergency list, the club announced on Twitter. To create room on the roster, Justin Miller has been optioned to Triple-A Albuquerque.

Axford has been on the FME list once before this season, back in April, not long after his two-year-old son was hospitalized due to rattlesnake bites.

The 32-year-old veteran reliever has converted the save in 13 of 14 opportunities thus far with a 2.42 ERA with a 21/10 K/BB ratio in 22 1/3 innings.
