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.
May 30 - 8:03 PM

Chad Bettis was tagged for seven runs in 4 2/3 innings by the Red Sox on Wednesday.

Well, there's very little shame in getting lit up by Boston right now. Bettis fell to 4-3 with a 4.90 ERA, but unlike Jorge De La Rosa, he's not going to be losing his rotation spot due to a bad start at Fenway.
May 25 - 10:57 PM

Chad Bettis limited the Cardinals to one run over 6 2/3 innings in a win Tuesday.

Bettis scattered five singles and walked two on the night, keeping the Cards largely off balance. The win was his fourth of the season, improving him to 4-2 with a 4.18 ERA through nine starts. Bettis will next face the Pirates in Pittsburgh on Sunday.
May 17 - 11:11 PM

Chad Bettis allowed four earned runs over 6 1/3 innings Wednesday in a no-decision versus the Diamondbacks.

Bettis was nails until the sixth inning, when the Diamondbacks started a big comeback on a Paul Goldschmidt RBI double. They would add three more runs in the seventh and three more in the eighth to tie it before Nolan Arenado rendered the effort meaningless with a go-ahead solo shot. Bettis stands 3-2 with a 4.56 ERA, 1.24 WHIP, and 38/10 K/BB ratio in 49 1/3 innings this season. He's shown promise at times.
May 11 - 6:35 PM

Chad Bettis logged a quality start in Sunday's victory over the Diamondbacks, allowing three runs on nine hits over his six frames.

Bettis punched out four and didn't walk a batter on the afternoon. While he wasn't at his best in this one, the Rockies offense did more than enough work to compensate and get him the victory. The 27-year-old will carry a 3.89 ERA and 26/8 K/BB ratio into Friday's matchup against the Giants in San Francisco. He's certainly worthy of consideration as a streaming option in mixed leagues while away from Coors Field.
May 1 - 8:06 PM

Chad Bettis was charged with four runs over 6 2/3 innings in Monday's loss to the Pirates.

The final two runs charged to Bettis came around on a homer that reliever Scott Oberg gave up, so he didn't pitch that poorly (especially considering the outing came at Coors Field). Bettis has arguably been the Rockies' best starter this season with a 3.77 ERA and 1.06 WHIP in his first five starts. He'll take on the D'Backs this weekend.
Apr 26 - 12:23 AM

Chad Bettis surrendered three earned runs in six innings Wednesday as the Rockies fell to the Reds.

The right-hander registered a no-decision with the Reds winning on a walkoff RBI single from Tucker Barnhart. Bettis was terrific last Friday at Wrigley Field, holding a dangerous Cubs lineup scoreless over six innings, but he fell back to mediocrity on Wednesday afternoon in Cincinnati. He probably won't be a very good fantasy streaming option in many matchups this season.
Apr 20 - 3:57 PM

Chad Bettis held the Cubs to just three hits over six scoreless innings in Friday's 6-1 victory.

He walked three batters on the day, but the Cubs mustered just three singles off the right-hander and he recorded four strikeouts. Bettis has now pitched well in back-to-back starts after a clunker of a first outing, lowering his ERA to 2.95 and WHIP to 1.20. It's possible he could be worth spot-starting some in favorable matchups this season, but it's hard to fully trust the soon-to-be 27-year-old when he's pitching half his games at Coors Field. Bettis gets the Reds on the road in his next outing.
Apr 15 - 5:36 PM

Chad Bettis delivered a strong effort in Sunday's victory over the Padres, allowing two runs (one earned) on six hits over seven frames.

Bettis racked up six strikeouts on the afternoon and didn't issue a walk. What's even more impressive, is that this strong performance came at Coors Field, against an offense that had exploded the previous two games. He'll look to keep things rolling when he squares off against the Cubs in Chicago on Friday.
Apr 10 - 7:35 PM

Chad Bettis couldn't make it through the sixth inning in Tuesday's win over the Diamondbacks, surrendering five runs on seven hits over 5 1/3 innings.

Bettis coughed up a pair of solo home runs in the contest. Paul Goldschmidt burned him in the first inning and Jean Segura did likewise in the third. The other three runs on his line came home in the sixth inning courtesy of an RBI single by Nick Ahmed and a two-run triple by Segura once more. Segura notched the three-bagger after Bettis had already left the contest, but the runs were charged against him nonetheless. In 115 innings last season, the 26-year-old right-hander held a 4.23 ERA, 1.40 WHIP and 98/42 K/BB ratio. He will face the Padres in his next start.
