Despite allowing just two runs (one earned) over six innings, Chad Bettis was saddled with the loss in Wednesday's defeat at the hands of the Diamondbacks.
Bettis scattered six hits, struck out six and walked three over his six innings of work. The 26-year-old right-hander kept the Diamondbacks off the scoreboard until the fifth inning, when Phil Gosselin nicked him for a sacrifice fly. Jarrod Saltalamacchia would hit an RBI single an inning later to finish off the scoring on his line. With his final start of the season in the books, Bettis can look back on a 2015 campaign that weighed in with a 4.23 ERA, 1.41 WHIP and 98/42 K/BB ratio over 115 innings. Oct 1 - 12:42 AM

Chad Bettis pitched well in earning a Thursday no-decision against the Pirates, yielding just two runs on seven hits over six innings.

Bettis struck out six and walked two on the afternoon. He's now allowed a paltry three runs in his last 18 innings, helping to lower his ERA from 4.95 to 4.38. His 1.40 WHIP leaves something to be desired, but at least he's finishing out the season strong. In his next outing, he'll hit the lonesome trail for a road date with the Diamondbacks as he wraps up his 2015 campaign.
Sep 24 - 6:14 PM

Chad Bettis yielded one run in five innings Friday in a win over the Padres.

Bettis struck out six and walked one in his second straight strong outing. He should just about clinch a spot in the 2016 rotation if he keeps this up during the final two weeks.
Sep 19 - 2:19 AM

Chad Bettis shut out the Mariners for seven innings Friday to improve to 7-5 on the season.

Bettis allowed three hits, walked three and struck out six. The last three months have mostly been a struggle for him, especially the month he missed with elbow tendinitis, but a nice finish could ensure that he's penciled into the Rockies' rotation next year. While he has a 4.59 ERA in 17 starts, that's pretty good for their pitching staff.
Sep 12 - 1:45 AM

Chad Bettis logged a mediocre start in Saturday's loss to the Giants, allowing four runs on eight hits over 4 1/3 innings.

Bettis surrendered solitary runs in the second and third innings, plus two more in the fifth to finish off the scoring on his line. He struck out just one on the evening. The 26-year-old right-hander holds a 4.95 ERA, 1.46 WHIP and 74/33 K/BB ratio across 91 innings. Up next on the docket, a road showdown with the Mariners.
Sep 5 - 11:23 PM

Chad Bettis struggled, allowing four runs in six innings, but left with a no-decision as the Rockies came back to beat the Diamondbacks on Monday.

Bettis allowed 11 hits, setting a season-high. Three of the runs came in during the third inning, including two on an A.J. Pollock home run. The right-hander walked none and struck out four on the evening as well. Bettis will head into a home start versus the Giants with a 4.78 ERA, a 1.43 WHIP, and a 73/32 K/BB ratio over 86 2/3 innings.
Sep 1 - 12:22 AM

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.
