SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) The 2-year-old son of Colorado Rockies pitcher John Axford is in stable condition a week after getting bitten twice by a rattlesnake.

Axford has not been with the Rockies since his son went to the hospital for anti-venom treatment last Wednesday. A second round of treatment was needed a few days later due to the excessive amount of venom found.

Doctors have likely saved the foot, though Jameson Axford could still face losing a toe or two, Rockies officials said.

John Axford, who has thrown a couple of bullpen sessions, says he is grateful for the support he's received.
