Chad Bettis pitched five innings of one-run ball to earn the win against the Braves on Tuesday.

Bettis, in his return from the disabled list, allowed an RBI single to Nick Markakis in the fifth inning, the only blemish on his line. He scattered five hits and a pair of walks while striking out four. His 4.69 ERA isn't pretty, but it's weighed down heavily by a poor start against the Angels on July 7. Bettis will look to put together another strong effort next week at home against the Diamondbacks.
Aug 25 - 10:56 PM

Rockies activated RHP Chad Bettis from the 15-day disabled list.

Bettis will rejoin the rotation on Tuesday versus the Braves. He missed just over a month of action with inflammation in his pitching elbow but was unscored upon in two rehab outings to show the Rockies he was ready.
Aug 24 - 6:51 PM

Chad Bettis (elbow) will return from the disabled list to start for the Rockies on Tuesday.

The right-hander has been sidelined since July 19 due to inflammation in his pitching elbow, but has looked sharp on his minor league rehab assignment. He returns to a 4.88 ERA, 1.40 WHIP and 65/30 K/BB ratio through 75 2/3 innings on the season.
Aug 23 - 7:57 PM

Chad Bettis (elbow) will make one more rehab start Thursday for Triple-A Albuquerque.

Bettis tossed 3 1/3 scoreless innings in his rehab debut this weekend with Double-A New Britian. The right-hander has been out since July 19 with elbow inflammation.
Aug 18 - 6:01 PM

Chad Bettis (elbow) will throw a simulated game on Tuesday.

If that goes well, he'll then begin a rehab assignment at Double-A Tulsa. It's unclear how many rehab starts he'll need, but Bettis is getting close.
Aug 7 - 5:56 PM

Chad Bettis (elbow) threw a bullpen session on Tuesday.

It was his first time throwing from the bump since he went on the disabled list over two weeks ago with right elbow inflammation. Bettis will throw off a mound again Friday before hopefully being cleared for a rehab assignment. "It was just something that flared up," Bettis said. "Now that we have a better understanding of how to go about this for myself and my career, to make sure I'm taking care of it, it's not going to be an issue."
Aug 4 - 9:51 PM

An MRI on Chad Bettis' right elbow showed no major damage.

Bettis was placed on the 15-day disabled list July 19 with elbow inflammation. It sounds like the 26-year-old right-hander will be fine to return in a couple of weeks.
Jul 21 - 5:42 PM

Rockies placed RHP Chad Bettis on the 15-day disabled list with right elbow inflammation.

Bettis posted a quality start on Saturday versus the Padres but complained of fatigue in his elbow after the outing. It doesn't sound like a major concern, but he'll be given at least a couple weeks off. Jon Gray would seem to be the most likely candidate to take Bettis' spot in the rotation.
Jul 19 - 1:50 PM

Chad Bettis surrendered three earned runs over six innings Saturday as the Rockies fell to the Padres.

Bettis walked three and gave up three hits, including a solo shot to light-hitting Padres catcher Austin Hedges. He didn't factor into the decision -- Christian Friedrich took the loss. Bettis will carry a 5-4 record, 4.88 ERA, and 1.40 WHIP into his next start at home against the Reds.
Jul 18 - 11:43 PM

Chad Bettis posted a quality start in Sunday's win over the Braves when he allowed three runs on six hits over six innings.

Bettis struck out eight against a whopping five walks, but despite his sketchy control, he was mostly effective in improving to 5-4 on the season. All three runs scored in the sixth inning. Those would be the only runs the Braves scored in the entire game. Bettis holds a lackluster 4.91 ERA and 1.44 WHIP, though in fairness, much of that came via a throttling by the Angels in his last start, when the 26-year-old right-hander allowed 10 runs in just 2 1/3 innings.
Jul 12 - 7:47 PM

Chad Bettis played gracious host to the Angels on Tuesday, allowing 10 runs over 2 1/3 innings in defeat.

Bettis was especially generous with the gopher ball, giving up four homers among his eight hits allowed. Prior to Tuesday, he'd only allowed four homers all season. The start predictably did a number on his ERA, raising it from 3.67 to 4.95. The loss dropped him to 4-4 through 11 starts. He'll make one more start before the All-Star break, taking on the Braves on Sunday.
Jul 8 - 12:23 AM

Chad Bettis allowed three runs over 5 2/3 innings in Wednesday's loss to the Athletics.

Bettis did well to limit the damage, giving up seven hits -- four of which went for extra bases -- and four walks in the outing. Still, he was on the wrong side of the affair, dropping to 4-3 on the year. The right-hander will carry a 3.67 ERA and 1.30 WHIP into Tuesday's meeting with the Angels.
Jul 1 - 6:54 PM

Chad Bettis allowed three runs over six innings in a win against the Giants on Friday.

Bettis gave up a homer to Andrew Susac tonight, so he's now allowed four longballs in three starts after not giving up a one in his first six. He did solid work anyway, but we're not liking the trend.
Jun 27 - 1:58 AM

Chad Bettis tossed 6 1/3 innings of one-run ball Saturday in the Rockies' win over the Brewers.

The one run he allowed was on an Adam Lind homer in the top of the sixth inning. Bettis then ran into trouble in the top of the seventh, but reliever Tommy Kahnle pitched out of it by inducing an inning-ending double play from Jonathan Lucroy. Bettis now stands 3-2 with a 3.44 ERA, 1.23 WHIP, and 43/15 K/BB ratio in 49 1/3 innings. Not bad for a Colorado starting pitcher.
