Rockies activate Chacin, Helton from DL
DENVER -- The Colorado Rockies activated first baseman Todd Helton and right-hander Jhoulys Chacin from the 15-day disabled list and both were in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Tampa Bay Rays.
Helton appeared in 13 games before going on the disabled list last month with a left forearm strain. Chacin, the Rockies' opening day pitcher, left his last outing on April 19 with a lower back strain. Before exiting with the injury, Chacin threw 6 1-3 scoreless innings against the Arizona Diamondbacks en route to winning a third straight game.
