Rockies manager Bud Black said Thursday that David Dahl (rib) has made improvements but there is no timetable for his return.

Dahl had a setback earlier this month but appears to be headed back in the right direction slowly but surely. He's dealt with a stress reaction in his rib since early on his spring training. Dahl's lagging recovery and uncertain role when he finally is ready to return makes him a dicey proposition for 2017.

Tyler Anderson said Thursday that Rockies manager Bud Black has not told him what his role will be.

Anderson tossed a scoreless relief inning Thursday versus the Diamondbacks in his first appearance since being activated from the disabled list. He'd seem to be a good bet to rejoin the rotation at some point, but it's unclear when that might be. The Rockies currently have six starters and are poised to get a seventh next week when Jon Gray (foot) returns. They'll likely wind up mixing and matching as they look to keep the workloads down for their young starters. "As far as a plan, things will become clear here over the next couple of days," Black said Thursday.

Charlie Blackmon socked a solo home run Thursday in the Rockies’ loss to the Diamondbacks.

Blackmon went yard in Colorado’s first at-bat of the afternoon, taking right-hander Zack Godley deep for his 16th homer of the year. He added to his tally with an RBI single in the eighth inning. Blackmon isn’t stealing bases like he did a few years ago, but it’s tough to complain when he’s hitting a ridiculous .328 with 56 RBI. The 30-year-old has been especially dominant at Coors Field, batting .390 at the Rockies’ home park.

Antonio Senzatela scattered eight hits and nine runs over five fateful innings Thursday in the Rockies’ loss to Arizona.

He finished with three walks and three strikeouts while throwing 63 of his 98 pitches for strikes. Senzatela just didn’t have it today. He probably would have come out sooner under normal circumstances but the Rockies needed him to go longer after burning their bullpen in Wednesday’s 16-5 loss. Senzatela gave up two homers on Thursday, serving up a three-run shot to Chris Owings in the third inning before allowing another three-run blast to Paul Goldschmidt in the fourth. The 22-year-old has had an awful month, recording an 8.86 ERA over 21 1/3 innings since the calendar turned to June.

Rockies activated LHP Tyler Anderson from the 10-day disabled list.

Anderson worked five innings of one-run ball with six strikeouts Sunday in a rehab start with Triple-A Albuquerque. The left-hander missed three weeks with inflammation in his left knee.
Jun 22 - 1:01 PM

Rockies optioned RHP Carlos Estevez to Triple-A Albuquerque.

Estevez allowed two runs in two innings of relief Wednesday night against the Diamondbacks and now holds an 8.10 ERA in 18 appearances this season at the major league level.

Jeff Hoffman took it on the chin in Wednesday’s loss to the Diamondbacks, relinquishing eight hits, nine runs and two walks over 3 2/3 innings.

He tallied two strikeouts while throwing 45 of his 68 pitches for strikes. Hoffman cruised through the first three innings, allowing just one base-runner during that span. It all went downhill from there as the D’Backs tagged Hoffman for nine runs on seven hits in the fourth inning. He couldn’t finish the frame, allowing six straight batters to reach before finally getting the hook from manager Bud Black. Hoffman took his first loss of the year while watching his ERA skyrocket from 2.25 to 4.29. He’ll try to get back on track Monday against the Giants.

Mark Reynolds blasted his 18th homer of the year Wednesday in the Rockies’ 14-4 loss to Arizona.

He put the Rockies ahead 1-0 (obviously that lead would prove to be short-lived) by bombing a tape-measure home run to deep center field off Taijuan Walker in the second inning. Reynolds has now taken Walker deep twice this year. He also led off the fourth with a double to right field but was stranded at second base. The 33-year-old has been a pleasant surprise for the Rockies, hitting .301 this year with 18 homers and 56 RBI.
Jun 22 - 12:22 AM

Nolan Arenado drove in two of the Rockies’ five runs in Wednesday’s loss to the Diamondbacks.

Arenado’s only hit of the night came in the fifth inning when he ripped a two-out double to center field off Taijuan Walker. That scored Charlie Blackmon and DJ LeMahieu. Wednesday extended Arenado’s hitting streak to six games. 25 of his 59 RBI this season have come since June 1.
Jun 22 - 12:18 AM

Chad Qualls (back) threw a bullpen session on Wednesday.

Qualls fired off around 25 pitches in the bullpen. The veteran reliever said he felt good after the session. He could potentially rejoin the team when first eligible to be activated from the disabled list on June 26. He was initially sent to the disabled list due to back spasms which he felt while pitching against the Giants last Thursday.

Carlos Gonzalez finished 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Tuesday's win against the Diamondbacks.

CarGo has been a terrible disappointment this season, hitting just two home runs in April, two homers in May and two clouts so far in June. The solo shot Tuesday was his first extra-base hit in 12 games dating back to June 6, and he continues to struggle with a .176 average (9-for-51) through 16 games this month.
Jun 21 - 1:47 AM

Nolan Arenado went 2-for-4 with a triple and two RBI in Tuesday's win against the Diamondbacks.

Arenado's scorching June continues, as he is now hitting .368 (28-for-76) with nine doubles, three triples, three homers and 23 RBI in 18 games. He has managed triples in back-to-back games while piling up eight extra-base hits over his past five outings.
Jun 21 - 1:40 AM

Greg Holland worked around a walk and a wild pitch in a scoreless ninth inning Tuesday against the Diamondbacks for his 25th save.

After allowing a run in each of his past two appearances, including a blown save June 15 against the Giants, it was nice to see a scoreless frame. However, he issued another walk to give him eight free passes and eight strikeouts over eight innings in eight June appearances.
Jun 21 - 1:37 AM

German Marquez allowed one earned run, four hits and two walks while recording three strikeouts across six innings in a no-decision Tuesday against Arizona.

Marquez threw 58 of his 97 pitches for strikes in the quality start, a rarity for a home start. He is 2-2 with a 4.85 ERA in five starts at Coors Field, and it was just his second time posting a quality start. Marquez is 3-1 with a 3.00 ERA in six road outings while racking up 33 strikeouts over 30 innings. He'll hit the road in his next scheduled start Sunday against the Dodgers.
Jun 21 - 1:33 AM

Jon Gray (foot) is scheduled for one more rehab start Saturday with Triple-A Albuquerque.

If it goes smoothly enough, he will return to the Rockies' starting rotation next week. Gray threw 74 pitches in his second rehab rehab start Monday night with Albuquerque, allowing five runs -- one earned -- over 4 1/3 innings while walking one batter and striking out seven. The 25-year-old right-hander has been out since mid-April with a stress fracture in his left foot.
