DENVER (AP) - The Colorado Rockies have activated reliever Taylor Buchholz from the 15-day disabled list and recalled infielder Chris Nelson from Triple-A Colorado Springs.
Both players are expected to be available for the game Wednesday night in San Francisco.
Buchholz has been out since mid-August with lower back stiffness. He has pitched 10 innings this season, going 1-0 with a 4.50 ERA.
The right-hander started the season on the 60-day disabled list as he recovered from a strained elbow. Buchholz missed all of 2009 after having Tommy John surgery.
This will be Nelson's third appearance on the roster this season. He's 2 for 5 with two runs scored.
He was hitting .313 with 12 homers in 85 games for Colorado Springs this season.
