Chad Bettis was marvelous in Sunday's win over the Nationals, allowing two runs on five hits over seven innings.
Bettis struck out six and walked one on the afternoon. Both runs on his line scored via solo homers. Trea Turner and Wilson Ramos burned him in the first and seventh innings, respectively. Despite Sunday's fine overall results, the 27-year-old right-hander still holds a 5.17 ERA and 1.48 WHIP for the season as a whole. A home start against the Diamondbacks shows next on his schedule.

Chad Bettis didn't bring his control with him to Milwaukee on Monday, walking seven batters and yielding four runs -- three earned -- over five frames.

That he was able to make it through five innings was a minor miracle, as he needed 111 pitches while battling control problems. Bettis gave up four hits, including a home run. After a nice finish to 2015, Bettis has really taken a step back this season with a 5.29 ERA and 1.51 WHIP across 26 starts. He'll try for better results this weekend in Washington.
Aug 22 - 10:42 PM

Chad Bettis allowed two runs over three innings in a rain-shortened start against the Nationals on Tuesday.

Saved by the rain, as they say, somewhere, probably, as Bettis was on his way to a poor outing before a two-hour, five-minute rain delay ended his night prematurely. He had already given up five hits and a walk in his three innings of work. Because it was something closer to a long relief appearance, the 27-year-old could presumably be used sooner than his next scheduled start set for Monday, but the Rox may also opt to keep him on that schedule. That Monday start would come against the Brewers in Milwaukee.
Aug 17 - 1:53 AM

Chad Bettis gave up three runs on seven hits spread across six innings to earn a win over the Marlins on Saturday.

He survived a mammoth 495-foot solo home run from Giancarlo Stanton that actually put the Marlins ahead 3-2 in the fifth inning before the Rockies scored seven times in the next frame. The win moves his record to 10-6 with a 5.13 ERA. This was his sixth consecutive quality start. He has a tough challenge in his next start at Texas on Thursday afternoon.
Aug 7 - 12:10 AM

Chad Bettis turned in a quality start in Sunday's loss to the Mets, yielding three runs on five hits over six innings.

Bettis struck out eight and walked two on the afternoon. The Mets tapped him for solitary runs in each of the first three innings before he settled down to shut them out over his final three frames. He has now tossed five consecutive quality starts and will try to make it six straight when he carries his 5.16 ERA and 1.44 WHIP into a home date with the Marlins next time out.
Jul 31 - 5:53 PM

Chad Bettis held the Orioles to two runs in six innings on Tuesday to improve to 9-6 on the season.

Bettis still has a 5.21 ERA on the season, but this makes four quality starts in a row for him. He's worked six innings in 16 of his 21 starts, which is quite a feat for a Rockies pitcher.
Jul 26 - 10:17 PM

Chad Bettis struck out seven while allowing three runs over 6 2/3 innings Saturday against the Braves.

Bettis gave up six hits and walked three in the no-decision. The right-hander owns a 5.55 ERA and 1.49 WHIP through 19 starts this year. A rematch with the Braves looms on Thursday.
Jul 16 - 10:58 PM

Chad Bettis pitched well in Thursday's win over the Phillies, yielding just two runs on seven hits over 6 2/3 innings.

Bettis struck out five and walked one in the victory. The ghost of Ryan Howard burned him for both runs on his line, smacking a solo home run in the second inning and an RBI single in the fourth. This was a fine performance by the 27-year-old right-hander, but his season as a whole has been far more rocky. He will enter the All-Star break the owner of a 5.65 ERA, 1.50 WHIP and 78/25 K/BB ratio across 102 innings. He has allowed five or more earned runs in five of his 18 outings.
Jul 7 - 11:39 PM

Chad Bettis surrendered four runs and six hits in his six innings on the mound, taking a loss to the Dodgers on Saturday.

He fanned four and walked one. His career splits show a 6.55 ERA at home and a 4.31 ERA on the road. He was pitching in Los Angeles today but that didn't help his fantasy owners much this time around. His next start will be at home versus the Phillies on Thursday.
Jul 3 - 2:14 AM

Chad Bettis was hit hard in a no-decision against the Diamondbacks on Sunday, giving up seven runs on 12 hits in five-plus innings of work.

Bettis walked three and struck out three on Sunday. Coors Field can be a difficult place for anyone to pitch, but Bettis' outing on Sunday was bad even for his home ballpark. Fortunately for him, the Rockies offense provided enough run support to take him off the hook for the loss. He'll bring an unsightly 5.78 ERA and 1.53 WHIP into Saturday's start against the Dodgers in Los Angeles. Away from home, he's at least worth a look as a streaming option in NL-only and deep mixed leagues.
Jun 26 - 7:54 PM

Chad Bettis pitched well in Tuesday's victory over the Yankees, allowing four runs (two earned) on eight hits over his six frames.

The right-hander punched out eight on the evening while walking just one. It was a very similar effort to his last time out, where Bettis allowed two earned runs over six innings in a victory over the Yankees in Colorado. For the season though, he has been a disaster more often than not, posting a 5.38 ERA and 1.44 WHIP. He'll look to replicate this fine effort when he does battle against the Diamondbacks on Sunday.
Jun 22 - 1:32 AM

Chad Bettis held the Yankees to three runs -- two earned -- over six innings Wednesday in a win.

Bettis was in cruise control until the top of the fourth, when Didi Gregorius and Aaron Hicks both smacked run-scoring singles. Hicks then added another run-scoring single in the top of the seventh. Bettis pitched well overall, striking out five and issuing zero walks while moving to 5-5 on the year. He'll carry a 5.63 ERA into his next start on the road against these same Yankees.
Jun 15 - 6:07 PM

Chad Bettis struggled in a no-decision against the Pirates on Thursday, allowing five runs (four earned) on seven hits in just three innings of work.

Bettis punched out four on the afternoon and didn't walk a batter. Most of the damage against him came on a three-run blast by David Freese in the third inning. Predictably for a pitcher who twirls half of his games in Colorado, Bettis has had a rough go of things this season, compiling a 5.77 ERA and 1.46 WHIP over 72 1/3 innings in his first 13 starts. He'll hope for better results next time out against the Yankees on Wednesday.
Jun 9 - 9:08 PM

Chad Bettis gave up four runs on ten hits to swallow a loss to the Padres on Saturday.

Bettis struck out three and walked one but ultimately it was two key home runs that proved his undoing. Wil Myers hit a solo blast in the first inning and Derek Norris followed that up with a two-run bomb in the second inning. Bettis now has a 5.58 ERA and 1.44 WHIP for the season and can't be trusted in fantasy leagues.
Jun 5 - 3:15 AM

Chad Bettis lasted just 3 2/3 frames Monday, getting charged with six runs in a loss to the Reds.

The Rockies spotted Bettis with a 5-1 lead after the third inning, but like many early leads at Coors Field, it eventually died. Bettis entered May with a 3.77 ERA, but he'll close it with a 5.46 mark, having allowed 13 runs over his last two outings. He'll attempt to get back on track this weekend in San Diego.
