Rockies | Chad Bettis records third quality start

Wed, 20 Apr 2016 14:52:21 -0700

Colorado Rockies SP Chad Bettis put together his third straight quality start Wednesday, April 20, versus the Cincinnati Reds. He logged six innings of three-run ball, scattering just three hits. Bettis also struck out five and walked none.

Fantasy Tip: If he was on any other team, Bettis would be gaining a bit more attention in fantasy circles, as he also had a decent showing last year. However, this is reminiscent of his beginning in 2015, when he carried a 3.05 ERA into mid-June before struggling for an extensive period. Thus, owners should wait to see a bit more before considering adding him. He's really more suited for NL-only leagues anyway, but could have some mixed format appeal if he can keep it up.

Rockies | Chad Bettis limits Cubbies

Fri, 15 Apr 2016 15:04:04 -0700

Colorado Rockies SP Chad Bettis pitched six scoreless innings with just three hits and three walks allowed while striking out four batters during the Rockies' 6-1 win over the Chicago Cubs Friday, April 15.

Fantasy Tip: Bettis sits with two wins, a 2.95 ERA, a 1.20 WHIP and 14 strikeouts through 17 1/3 innings through his first three starts. He is a viable spot starter in deeper leagues and daily contests when he lands in a plus-matchup away from Coors Field. Bettis is probably best left to the waiver wire in the majority of seasonal leagues, though.

Rockies | COL to employ four-man rotation

Thu, 31 Mar 2016 18:57:40 -0700

The Colorado Rockies will use a four-man rotation to start the season, according to manager Walt Weiss. SPs Jorge De La Rosa, Chad Bettis, Tyler Chatwood and Jordan Lyles will occupy the rotation spots. The club isn't expected to need a fifth starter until sometime between April 14, in a game versus the San Francisco Giants, and April 16, in a game versus the Chicago Cubs. At that point, SP Jon Gray (abdomen) could be ready to return from the disabled list.

Fantasy Tip: Of the four healthy starters, De La Rosa has the most fantasy value but should be viewed as nothing more than a late-round option for mixed leagues. Gray should remain stashed in dynasty and keeper formats, as well as NL-only leagues.

Rockies | Chad Bettis, Tyler Chatwood lead spring rotation

Tue, 22 Mar 2016 13:21:23 -0700

Colorado Rockies SP Chad Bettis and SP Tyler Chatwood are the leaders of the starting rotation this spring. Bettis has a 3.75 ERA, eight strikeouts, two walks, and a .267 batting average against in 12 innings, while Chatwood has a 3.27 ERA, five strikeouts, six walks, and a .167 batting average against in 11 innings.

Fantasy Tip: Jorge De La Rosa also has had a decent spring even though his earned run average (4.63) is pretty high. Right now Bettis and Chatwood look like decent late-round options in NL and mixed leagues, but beware of the Coors Field effect as always.

Rockies | Chad Bettis good lately

Thu, 24 Sep 2015 09:08:48 -0700

Colorado Rockies SP Chad Bettis is 2-0 with a 0.75 ERA in his last two starts against the Seattle Mariners and San Diego Padres. He will face the Pittsburgh Pirates Thursday, Sept. 24.

Fantasy Tip: The Pirates are a different beast than the M's and Padres, but after clinching a playoff spot last night they could rest a lot of their regulars Thursday. Still, Bettis ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) is a deep sleeper for your second pitching slot on FantasyScore. He owns a 4.46 ERA and 1.39 WHIP on the season.

Giants | Buster Posey out Saturday

Sat, 05 Sep 2015 16:17:10 -0700

San Francisco Giants C Buster Posey is not starting Saturday, Sept. 5, against the Colorado Rockies. Posey's replacement is C Hector Sanchez, who will bat seventh against Rockies SP Chad Bettis.

Fantasy Tip: Although the Giants said they might rest some starters periodically, it's a surprise to see Posey ($5,200, 10.4% of cap) seated with a .520 batting average in the past week. That's a risk for a hot hitter to sit down, even for a day.

Giants | Brandon Belt out Saturday

Sat, 05 Sep 2015 16:11:40 -0700

San Francisco Giants 1B Brandon Belt (illness) is not in the starting lineup Saturday, Sept. 5, against the Colorado Rockies. 1B Nick Noonan will bat eighth against Rockies SP Chad Bettis.

Fantasy Tip: Belt ($5,100, 10.2% of cap) likely may have been out with the Rockies throwing a righty in Bettis, but Belt suffered stomach pains earlier in the day and was scratched. Noonan carries no FantasyScore value.

Braves | Cameron Maybin not batting Tuesday

Tue, 25 Aug 2015 12:32:42 -0700

Atlanta Braves OF Cameron Maybin is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, Aug. 25, against the Colorado Rockies. OF Michael Bourn is in center field and has the eighth spot against Rockies SP Chad Bettis.

Fantasy Tip: Maybin ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) hits .326-5-27 at Turner Field but only has one at-bat against Bettis for his career. This appears to be a standard night off and a chance to get Bourn ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) in the lineup. Bourn is hitting .125 in the last week, so don't take a chance he'll break out.

Braves | Nick Swisher hitting second

Tue, 25 Aug 2015 12:17:12 -0700

Atlanta Braves OF Nick Swisher is batting second in the lineup Tuesday, Aug. 25, against Colorado Rockies SP Chad Bettis.

Fantasy Tip: Swisher ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) batted sixth and fourth in games over the weekend, including a .750 average in the fourth position. Swisher is also hitting .625 in left field, and this may be behind the move to put him higher in the order. He may be worth a flier at this price.

Rockies | Chad Bettis starting Tuesday

Mon, 24 Aug 2015 15:56:38 -0700

Colorado Rockies SP Chad Bettis (elbow) will be activated from the disabled list to start against the Atlanta Braves Tuesday, Aug. 25. In a corresponding move, SP David Hale has been optioned to Class AAA Albuquerque.

Fantasy Tip: Bettis ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) hasn't started for Colorado since Sunday, July 19. And while the Braves are a team to target with your starting pitchers, Bettis remains a risky start. Hale ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) can be dropped in all seasonal formats.
