Oh is 2-0 with a 3.06 ERA in 20 Rockies appearances since arriving in a trade with the Blue Jays on July 26.

"He's doing better -- threw a side session yesterday and we put him through some paces earlier today to make sure he could get his confidence in his hamstring, so we expect him soon," manager Bud Black said before Colorado's Sunday finale vs. the Giants. "It's truly day to day. Initially, our trainers thought it would be four days, five days, but it's been a little bit longer.

"He's getting closer, and we need him -- we need all those guys. If there's a silver lining, it's been a good break for his arm."
