Chad Bettis held the Dodgers to one run in seven innings Friday to win at Coors Field.

Bettis ends the regular season on a high note, winning for just the second time in nine starts since returning from cancer. He finishes with a 5.05 ERA and a 30/11 K/BB ratio in 46 1/3 innings. It's possible he'll get a start in the NLDS if the Rockies make it to the postseason and advance.

Chad Bettis allowed one earned run, seven hits and two walks with three strikeouts over 4 2/3 innings in a road loss in San Diego on Saturday.

Bettis has lost back-to-back starts and four of his five decisions. His story is an amazing one, returning from cancer. But he has failed to last longer than 5 1/3 innings in each of his past six outings and he isn't much of a fantasy asset. His last start of the season is scheduled for Friday opposite Clayton Kershaw and the Dodgers.

The Rockies are pushing back Chad Bettis' next start.

Bettis lasted just one-third of an inning while giving up five runs last time out, so the Rockies will give him some extra rest. Tyler Chatwood is expected to start Wednesday against the Giants while Bettis will return next Saturday against the Padres.

Chad Bettis lasted just one-third of an inning Thursday and gave up five runs in a loss to the Diamondbacks.

It's so impressive that Bettis made it back from cancer to pitch this year, but his velocity hasn't been the same and he also lacked control today, walking three of the seven batters he faced. The Rockies' rotation is completely up in the air at the moment, so it's hard to say whether Bettis will continue to get starts. He's 1-3 with a 6.23 ERA since returning.

Chad Bettis earned his first victory of the 2017 season on Saturday, allowing four runs (three earned) on six hits over five innings against the Dodgers.

Bettis punched out five on the night and didn't walk a batter. The Dodgers pushed across three runs against him in the fourth inning and Andre Ethier tacked on a solo shot in the fifth, but the Rockies' offense did enough to make him a winner. Bettis will carry a 4.98 ERA and 1.25 WHIP into Thursday's start against the Diamondbacks in Arizona.

Chad Bettis surrendered five earned runs over five innings Wednesday in a loss to the Tigers.

It was the second straight five-run drubbing against the 28-year-old right-hander, who now has a 4.88 ERA in 24 innings since returning from testicular cancer on August 14. Bettis walked two Detroit hitters and gave up seven hits, including two home runs. He'll face the Giants at home next.

Chad Bettis gave up a season-high five runs over five innings Friday in a loss to the Braves.

The Braves got to him early. Bettis, making his third start after returning from surgery for testicular cancer, served up a two-run homer to Matt Kemp in the first inning before giving up three more runs (including a solo homer to Kurt Suzuki) in the second inning. He struck out three and walked a pair en route to his first loss of the season. He’ll try to get back in the win column next week against the Twins.

Chad Bettis allowed three runs on eight hits over seven innings while taking a no-decision in Saturday's loss to the Brewers.

All three of the runs Bettis allowed in the contest scored in the third inning, when he coughed up an RBI triple to Eric Thames, a sacrifice fly to Ryan Braun and a solo home run to Travis Shaw. Bettis struck out six and walked one over his seven innings of work. He will carry a sharp 1.93 ERA and 1.07 WHIP into a road start against the Braves next time he takes to the mound.

Chad Bettis returned from cancer on Monday and blanked the Braves for seven innings in the Rockies' 3-0 victory.

Unfortunately, the win went to Michael Dunn, since the Rockies never scored until the bottom of the eighth. Still, the night was a huge success for Bettis. He struck out just two, but he got 12 outs on the ground. He almost gave up a run before even getting an out, but Ender Inciarte was thrown out at the plate while trying for an inside-the-park home run. It was rather smooth sailing from there. Bettis will face the Brewers at Coors next time out. As much as we're pulling for him, we still wouldn't recommend him for fantasy purposes.

Rockies recalled RHP Chad Bettis from Triple-A Albuquerque.

Bettis will make his season debut with the Rockies on Monday against the Braves after working his way back from testicular cancer. He posted a 4.24 ERA, 1.37 WHIP, and 17/7 K/BB ratio in six rehab appearances covering 23 1/3 innings. As great of a story as it is, Bettis isn't a terribly appealing option for fantasy purposes.

Rockies manager Bud Black confirmed that Chad Bettis (cancer) will make his season debut Monday against the Braves.

Bettis was diagnosed with testicular cancer last November and needed a round of chemotherapy this spring, but the 28-year-old right-hander has a clean bill of health now. He posted a 4.24 ERA, 1.37 WHIP, and 17/7 K/BB ratio in six rehab appearances covering 23 1/3 innings.

Chad Bettis is likely to make his season debut on Monday against the Braves.

It's a day later than initially thought, as it appears the Rockies want Bettis to make his debut at home rather than on the road. Making his way back from a March diagnosis of testicular cancer, Bettis has posted a 4.24 ERA over 23 1/3 innings on his rehab assignment.

The 28-year-old right-hander has posted a 4.91 ERA and 15/7 K/BB ratio through 18 1/3 innings on his minor league rehab assignment. He'll make one more rehab appearance.
