Colorado Rockies SP Chad Bettis was optioned to the minor league camp March 22, but the team has called him back twice to pitch in Cactus League spring games. The team is scrambling for a fourth starter, so Bettis is suddenly back in consideration for the opening day roster.
Fantasy Tip: Bettis could still land a rotation job, but even if he does his value is limited to deeper NL-only fantasy leagues. For FantasyScore purposes, he could be a decent option when the matchup is favorable.

The Colorado Rockies placed OF Michael Cuddyer (shoulder) on the 15-day day disabled list with a left shoulder strain Monday, June 9. SP Eddie Butler (shoulder) was also put on the DL with right rotator cuff inflammation. In corresponding moves, the team recalled SP Christian Bergman and RP Chad Bettis from Triple-A Colorado Springs and designated RP Wilton Lopez for assignment.
Fantasy Tip: This is Cuddyer's second trip to the DL this year. This time, some combination of Drew Stubbs and Brandon Barnes should fill in for Cuddyer with Carlos Gonzalez (finger, knee) also sidelined. Stubbs and Barnes are short-term candidates for an addition as NL-only outfield depth.

Colorado Rockies manager Walt Weiss said he has been happy with how P Chad Bettis has performed his last three outings because he is using his changeup. "It's a matter of throwing his changeup enough so it gets hitters off his fastball. He's got such a great changeup, a power changeup, and it bottoms out. When a hitter sees that, it puts some doubt in his mind in fastball counts," Weiss said. Bettis has pitched 3 2/3 scoreless innings in his last three outings after allowing runs on three of his first four outings.
