The Colorado Rockies placed SP Tyler Chatwood (elbow) on the 15-day disabled list with right elbow inflammation Thursday, Aug. 8. In corresponding moves, they recalled P Jeff Manship from the minors and placed SP Christian Friedrich (back) on the 60-day DL. "Tyler threw a bullpen (Tuesday), really to test his hamstring," manager Walt Weiss said. "Then today he had inflammation in his elbow. Tyler has been really good. When it rains it pours. That's a guy you would love to run out there when we are struggling like we are."
Fantasy Tip: Chad Bettis could stay in the rotation now, or the team could turn to Jeff Francis to take Chatwood's spot. Bettis probably makes more sense, but he should only be an option in NL-only leagues.
