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.

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.
Jun 20 - 6:46 PM

Chad Bettis was touched up for five runs over five innings in Monday's loss to the Astros.

He yielded seven hits -- including a pair of homers -- while walking two, needing 101 pitches to cover five frames. Bettis has struggled the last two times out after a nice three-start stretch, but he still sports a nifty 38/13 K/BB ratio over 43 1/3 innings. He'll try to bounce back this weekend against the Brewers.
Jun 15 - 11:53 PM

Chad Bettis allowed three runs over five innings Tuesday, taking the loss against the Cardinals.

Bettis was decent, striking out six while giving up six hits and two walks, but some unforced errors and a couple timely hits did him in. The loss was his first of the season, as he'd been 2-0 with a 2.70 ERA through his first five starts. Bettis will carry a 3.05 ERA and 1.17 WHIP into Monday's interleague tilt with the Astros.
Jun 10 - 6:13 PM

The Rockies have pushed Chad Bettis' next start back from Monday until Wednesday.

Giving him an extra day paves the way for David Hale to make another start for the Rockies on Monday. Bettis has been terrific since joining the Rockies rotation, and the extra days of rest should do well to keep him fresh.
Jun 6 - 1:04 PM

Chad Bettis pitched six innings and allowed two runs -- one earned -- in a no-decision against the Dodgers on Wednesday.

It's nice to see Bettis succeeding as a starter after being jerked around by the Rockies the previous couple of years, but it's still rather difficult to be optimistic about his fantasy prospects. He has Coors Field to deal with, he doesn't throw all that hard and he's not a particularly big strikeout guy. He might remain solid for the Rockies, but he shouldn't be a long-term NL-only guy.
Jun 4 - 4:06 AM

Chad Bettis was outstanding in Friday's victory over the Phillies, allowing just two hits over eight scoreless innings.

The right-hander punched out eight in the impressive outing and didn't issue a walk. He has been nothing short of spectacular in his last two outings, allowing just two runs over 15 1/3 innings and posting a 15/2 K/BB ratio. While he obviously won't continue at this pace and pitches his home games at Coors Field, he could be worth a look as a streaming option in NL-only or deeper mixed leagues.
May 29 - 9:51 PM

Chad Bettis was outstanding in Sunday's victory over the Giants, allowing just two runs on six hits over his 8 1/3 innings.

Bettis racked up seven strikeouts on the afternoon while walking two. The right-hander carried a shutout into the ninth inning before finally allowing a pair of runs to score. He'll carry a 4.19 ERA, 1.40 WHIP and 15/6 K/BB ratio into Saturday's start against the Phillies in Philadelphia.
May 24 - 9:28 PM

Chad Bettis left with a no-decision after holding the Phillies to three runs in six innings as the Rockies won on Tuesday.

The Rockies staked Bettis to an early 3-0 lead, but the right-hander gave two of them back on three doubles in the second inning. He allowed another double followed by a single to knot the game at 3-3. Bettis gave up eight hits but neglected to walk a batter while striking out five. Bettis has made only two starts thus far. He'll take the ball again at home against the Giants over the weekend.
May 20 - 12:04 AM

Chad Bettis allowed four runs on seven hits over five innings in Thursday's no-decision against the Dodgers.

The Rockies recalled Bettis from the minors earlier in the day. The 26-year-old had a 9.12 ERA in 21 relief appearances last year, and his first appearance of 2015 didn't go much better. He could be headed back to Albuquerque soon.
May 15 - 2:47 AM

Rockies recalled RHP Chad Bettis from Triple-A Albuquerque.

The 26-year-old hasn't been great in the minor leagues, posting a 3.97 ERA and 1.41 WHIP over 34 frames, but the Rockies need an extra arm in the bullpen. He's likely to work in long relief during his stint in the bullpen and should head back down to Triple-A once Brooks Brown is ready to return.
May 14 - 8:35 PM

Chad Bettis will be recalled to start Thursday's game against the Dodgers.

The start will be the first of 2015 for Bettis. The right-hander didn't make a start for the Rox last year, posting a 9.12 ERA in 21 relief appearances. The club will have to make a corresponding roster move before Thursday's game.
May 13 - 6:44 PM

Chad Bettis was scratched from his scheduled start with Triple-A Colorado Springs on Monday due to a sore right shoulder.

"He's got a tender shoulder," Rockies manager Walt Weiss said. "It's not out of the question that he could still show up here, but he's not making the start because he's got a sore shoulder." The righty has surrendered 11 runs on 18 hits and six walks across 8 2/3 frames over his last two starts, so it's possible he was dealing with soreness before Monday. The Rockies recently moved Bettis back to a starting role after using him in relief all season.

Chad Bettis has been moved to the rotation at Triple-A Colorado Springs.

Bettis was a starter almost exclusively prior to this season, but the Rockies determined he would help the team most in a relief role. It hasn't worked out, as he's posted a 9.12 ERA over 21 appearances. The Rockies have left it up in the air as to what Bettis' role will be beyond this season.
