Rockies activate Todd Helton
Helton last played for the Rockies on July 4. He went on the DL three days later with stiffness in his lower back.
Helton turns 37 later this month. He is hitting .246 with two home runs and 16 RBIs in 69 games for the Rockies. He played three games in the rookie league last weekend on a rehabilitation assignment.
