Chad Bettis gave up two runs over five innings with four strikeouts in a no decision against the Dodgers on Tuesday.
Bettis really struggled in the first inning, giving up an RBI single to Matt Kemp and then walking in a run when he gave Yasiel Puig a free pass. Over his final four innings he was excellent, and he kept the Rockies in the game. Bettis needs a quality defense behind him, but he does possess a 3.30 ERA on the season along with a 1.20 WHIP. We'll see him back on the mound on Monday against the Giants. May 23 - 1:10 AM

Chad Bettis yielded three runs on five hits over six innings while taking a no-decision in Thursday's 12-inning win over the Giants.

Bettis struck out five and walked two over his six frames of work. He also chipped in at the dish, picking up an RBI single off Jeff Samardzija in the second inning. This was a strong rebound showing for the right-hander, who was knocked around for seven runs by the Brewers in his previous start. Bettis will bring a strong 3.27 ERA, 1.20 WHIP and 35/19 K/BB ratio (55 innings) into a road showdown with the Dodgers in his next scheduled outing.
May 18 - 2:19 AM

Chad Bettis was roughed up for the first time this season Friday, giving up seven runs in five innings against the Brewers.

The offense still saved him from taking his second loss, but his ERA jumped from 2.05 to 3.12 tonight. While he's a perfectly solid starter, he's not a good bet in mixed leagues going forward.
May 12 - 1:50 AM

Chad Bettis fired off seven innings of shutout ball in Saturday's 2-0 win over the Mets.

Brilliant work from Bettis on Saturday evening. While he wasn't slicing and dicing the Mets via the strikeout -- he finished with just two on the evening -- the right-hander consistently kept the home team off balance as he scattered six hits over his seven innings of work. Bettis has been sharp all season, having now allowed two or fewer runs in six of seven outings. He's also gone at least seven frames in four outings. He'll look to keep it going in a home showdown with the Brewers in his next scheduled outing.
May 5 - 9:41 PM

Chad Bettis gave up just two runs over seven innings of work in a loss to the Marlins.

Bettis allowed just four hits and a walk, and he struck out five. Unfortunately for Colorado and Bettis, Caleb Smith dominated the Rockies. Still, it's another strong start for the right-hander, who now owns a nifty 2.43 ERA on the season. He'll look to keep it going next time out against the Mets on Saturday.
Apr 29 - 3:48 PM

Chad Bettis gave up four runs in five innings on Wednesday in a no decision against the Padres.

This game was tied at 4-4 at the end of the first, so it's safe to say that Bettis settled down over his final four innings. Still, it's a lackluster effort from the right-hander; particularly considering how well Bettis has pitched in his previous outings. His next scheduled start will come on Sunday against the Marlins in Miami. He might be a streaming option for that one.
Apr 24 - 12:13 AM

Chad Bettis lowered his ERA on the season to 1.44 following 7 1/3 shutout innings in Tuesday's 2-0 victory over the Pirates.

It was snowing in Pittsburgh but that didn't seem to affect Bettis, who yielded just five hits and a couple walks in the gem. He did require a little help from the bullpen after being pulled with a runner on third with one out in the eighth, and Bryan Shaw and Jake McGee came through. While it's great to see Bettis' shiny ERA, three of his four starts have been on the road and he has a 15/10 K/BB ratio over 25 frames. He'll take on the Padres in Denver next.
Apr 17 - 10:00 PM

Chad Bettis limited the Nationals to one run over seven innings in a win Thursday.

Bettis scattered three hits and walked two while fanning five in the outing, with only a Howie Kendrick solo homer in the fifth inning hurting him. He's allowed two runs or fewer in each of his three starts thus far, going 2-0 with a strong 2.04 ERA and 1.13 WHIP in 17 2/3 innings. Bettis will look to keep rolling Tuesday when he faces the surprising Pirates in Pittsburgh.
Apr 12 - 11:43 PM

Chad Bettis limited the Braves to one run over 5 2/3 innings in a no-decision Saturday.

Bettis gave up four hits and walked two, using three strikeouts and a ton of ground balls to neutralize the Braves offense. Unfortunately for the right-hander, a blown save in the ninth inning cost him a shot at improving to 2-0, but it was still a second decent showing on the year. He'll carry a 2.53 ERA into a tough matchup Thursday against the Nationals.
Apr 7 - 11:50 PM

Chad Bettis picked up his first win of the season by firing five innings and allowing two runs in a victory over the Padres on Monday.

Bettis was able to limit the San Diego offense to two runs, but he was fortunate to do so as he gave up five hits and four walks in those five innings. He did strike out four, however, and assuming he can put up similar numbers while being backed by the Colorado offense, he could have a solid -- if not spectacular -- 2018 season. He's back on the mound on Saturday when the Rockies travel to Atlanta to take on the Braves.
Apr 3 - 1:36 AM

Chad Bettis allowed a run in three innings in his final spring start on Tuesday against the Mariners.

Bettis was hit be a comebacker in the leg early in this one, but stayed in the game and it doesn't appear to be the reason he went just three innings. He finishes the exhibition season with a 4.50 ERA. We'll see Bettis on the mound next in the regular season when he takes on the Rockies next week, but we don't know if that start will be on Monday or Tuesday as Colorado hasn't set the final rotation just yet.
Mar 27 - 4:11 PM

Chad Bettis allowed two earned runs in 5 2/3 innings against the Athletics on Thursday.

Bettis allowed two hits and walked two, and he struck out four. He now owns a Cactus League ERA of 4.80. He's an inspirational story who offers some DFS appeal when not pitching at home, but he's probably not worth a draft pick in mixed redraft leagues.
Mar 22 - 5:58 PM

Chad Bettis allowed two earned runs over five innings Monday in a Cactus League start versus the Diamondbacks.

Bettis struck out four and didn't issue a walk, but the Diamondbacks got to him for six hits. The 28-year-old right-hander is an iffy season-long fantasy bet for 2018 after posting a 5.05 ERA over nine starts in 2017. He could have some streaming and DFS appeal for his outings away from Coors Field.
Mar 12 - 6:13 PM

Chad Bettis was charged with four runs over 2 1/3 innings in Friday’s start against the Diamondbacks.

All of the damage came on a grand slam off the bat of Jake Lamb in the third inning. Bettis allowed six hits in all while walking one. The 28-year-old was one of the better stories in baseball last season after making it back from testicular cancer. He posted a 5.05 ERA over nine starts and lost some velocity, but it was understandable given the circumstances. Hopefully we’ll see it bounce back this year.
Mar 2 - 8:24 PM

Chad Bettis hurled two scoreless innings on Sunday against the Rangers in his first spring start, walking one and striking out two.

Bettis, 28, didn't allow a hit, and needed just 14 pitches to get through the start. The right-hander was one of the most inspirational stories of 2017 after coming back from testicular cancer, and despite his 5.05 ERA he had several excellent starts down the stretch for the Rockies. He's tough to trust in fantasy because he doesn't miss a ton of bats and where he plays, but he could be a DFS pitcher to target when Colorado is on the road.
