Colorado Rockies SP Chad Bettis has been recalled from the minors and will start against the Los Angeles Dodgers Thursday, May 14, with SP Eddie Butler going Friday, May 15.
Fantasy Tip: It's unclear if Bettis will stay in the Rockies rotation, but a strong start would certainly help his cause. He'll be dirt cheap at FantasyScore, but against a potent Dodgers lineup, there's no reason to take the huge risk.

Colorado Rockies SP Eddie Butler has the inside track to one of the final starting rotation spots.
Fantasy Tip: Butler ($3,000, 6.0% of your cap) is a decent prospect that would receive consideration on FantasyScore. However, he has to deal with Coors Field, so mix and match as necessary.

Colorado Rockies SPs Jon Gray and Eddie Butler are competing for the final rotation spot, according manager Walt Weiss. Also in the running are SPs David Hale and Christian Bergman.
Fantasy Tip: Gray and Butler have the fantasy upside, with the former being the team's top pitching prospect. Although until there is an official announcement, it is difficult to roster any of the four outside of NL-only formats, especially pitching their home games at Coors Field. It is a situation to monitor, and if Gray or Butler win the job, they could warrant a late-round flier in deep mixed leagues.
