Rockies | Rafael Betancourt to DL

Colorado Rockies CL Rafael Betancourt (appendix) was placed on the 15-day disabled list due to appendicitis. RP Mitchell Boggs was recalled from Triple-A Colorado Springs. RP Rex Brothers will serve as the closer while Betancourt is out.

Fantasy Tip: Pick up Brothers in all formats. It's unknown how long Betancourt will be out. Appendix surgery can take four to six weeks, but they have a less invasive procedure now that can allow players to heal quickly. This probably eliminates him from any consideration to be traded (unless they pull off a waiver deal in August), so it looks like Brothers' time as stopper depends directly on how rapidly Betancourt returns to action.
