Rockies | Will not change Matt Belisle's role

Sat, 26 Apr 2014 08:38:19 -0700

Colorado Rockies manager Walt Weiss said he will not change how he uses RP Matt Belisle even though Belisle has a 6.30 ERA. "I don't think it's going to change," Weiss said. "I will use Matty anytime from the sixth inning on. Typically, I don't like to pigeonhole a guy, saying a guy will pitch 'in this inning.' I let the game dictate some of those things."

Rockies | Looking for setup help

Mon, 17 Mar 2014 00:47:17 -0700

The Colorado Rockies are looking at the trade market for a right-handed setup option. CL LaTroy Hawkins is likely to cede the closer role to RP Rex Brothers at some point, which would make Hawkins available (along with RP Matt Belisle) as a late-inning righty. Another source indicates the club prefers to give RP Chad Bettis or RP Chris Martin a chance before pursuing a trade.

Rockies | Matt Belisle excited for chance

Sun, 16 Feb 2014 18:35:05 -0800

Colorado Rockies RP Matt Belisle is excited about the increased competition heading into the season. The team added several arms to the back end of the bullpen during the offseason. Belisle, who is just one of two pitchers to appear more than 70 times in each of the past four seasons, will compete with RPs Wilton Lopez and Adam Ottavino for a role in the bullpen from the right side. Belisle expressed that he is "extremely fortunate" that manager Walt Weiss shows confidence in him. He also said that many of his late-season struggles came from predictable patterns, especially against familiar hitters. He plans to use his changeup to combat that.

The Colorado Rockies have listened to offers for RPs Matt Belisle, Rafael Betancourt and Josh Outman.

Rockies | Rafael Betancourt, Matt Belisle available

Wed, 17 Jul 2013 11:35:55 -0700

Colorado Rockies RPs Rafael Betancourt and Matt Belisle are available for trade, according to ESPN and MLB Network Radio's Jim Bowden.

Fantasy Tip: This might be a first mention of Betancourt, this season, from a respected source. KFFL has been for a while stating this possibility -- based on the fact that he was available at least year's deadline, too -- as a reason to hold Rex Brothers through the deadline or longer.

Rockies | Unclear who could get save Wednesday

Wed, 22 May 2013 12:43:37 -0700

Colorado Rockies manager Walt Weiss is unsure who he'll turn to Wednesday, May 22, if a save situation arises with RP Rafael Betancourt (groin) unavailable. RPs Rex Brothers, Wilton Lopez or Matt Belisle are all options, but Weiss could play the matchups.

Fantasy Tip: Brothers is likely to receive the first crack at a save situation, unless Weiss plays the matchups in the ninth. If you already own Brothers in a deep league, hang onto him a bit longer until we know for sure that Betancourt is out of the woods. It's probably not worth adding Brothers otherwise.

Wed, 05 Dec 2012 09:16:25 -0800

Colorado Rockies RP Wilton Lopez will serve as a setup man along with RPs Matt Belisle and Rex Brothers. Lopez will be more of a one-inning pitcher and he could also spell RP Rafael Betancourt in the ninth if he needs a breather.
