Rockies manager Walt Weiss announced Friday that John Axford has been removed from his role as the team's closer.
Weiss said Friday, "I had a conversation with John a little earlier and I told him I was going to get him out of that ninth inning for a little bit and let him catch his breath". He has blown four saves in his last five appearances and has had difficulty finding the strike zone. Rafael Betancourt and Tommy Kahnle are the two most likely candidates to take over the role.
