Rockies | Rafael Betancourt to avoid DL

Colorado Rockies RP Rafael Betancourt (groin) has inflammation around scar tissue in his right groin and is expected to avoid the disabled list. Team trainer Keith Dugger said Betancourt will receive anti-inflammatory medicine, which should calm the area. The trainer isn't worried that the injury is serious. Betancourt is expected to be fine by Friday, May 24.

Fantasy Tip: A sigh of relief for Betancourt owners. Those who have Rex Brothers stashed should consider keeping him around until Betancourt is out of the woods, but the club's closer sounds as if he'll be fine.
