Rockies | Rafael Betancourt says he'll return Friday

Colorado Rockies RP Rafael Betancourt (groin) said he'll come off the disabled list Friday, June 28, after throwing a successful live batting practice session Tuesday, June 25. "I'm ready to go. I feel so much better than I did before I went on the DL," Betancourt said. "Before, when I came to the park, I was thinking about it all the time. Now it's totally different. I'm ready to help this team win and do my job." He threw two simulated innings Tuesday, totaling 37 pitches. The team is expected to immediately put him back in the closer's role. RP Rex Brothers will return to a setup role.
