The Colorado Rockies have announced that they have activated outfielder David Dahl off of the 10-day injured list and recalled right-handed pitcher Ashton Goudeau from their alternate training site. In corresponding moves, the Rockies have optioned left-handed pitcher Jose Mujica and right-handed pitcher Antonio Santos back to their alternate training site.
Dahl, 26, was on the 10-day injured list with back soreness since he last played in a game on August 17, meaning that he was on the injured list for three weeks.
He was recovering at the Rockies alternate training site but he joined the Rockies while they were in Los Angeles facing the Dodgers last weekend. He took batting practice with the team and manager Bud Black hinted at Dahl being activated in the near future.

When he does see game action, he will look to improve upon his .189/.238/.243 slash line in 19 games. In that span, he was in the bottom ten percent of the league in many categories before recently dropping out of them since he no longer qualifies because of the lack of playing time.
Even though he will be active for Wednesday’s game, he will not be in the starting lineup.
Goudeau, 28, has made three appearances for the Rockies and pitched in 4 2/3 innings. In those 4 2/3 innings, he allowed 11 hits, 6 runs (all earned) for an ERA of 11.57.
Mujica, 24, made his MLB debut on Tuesday in San Diego and he was shelled for seven runs (six earned) in 2 2/3 innings of work. He allowed eight hits and walked two in that span.
Santos, 23, also appeared in the game on Tuesday in San Diego and he went 3 innings, allowing five hits and three runs. That was his second MLB appearance with his first coming on September 1.
The Rockies will look to stop their losing streak tonight at an earlier start time of 6:10 p.m. (Mountain time) when Antonio Senzatela will face Padres starter Zach Davies.
