Rockies | Rafael Betancourt not close

Colorado Rockies RP Rafael Betancourt (appendix) isn't close to game action. He has played catch this week, but he won't go on a rehab assignment until after the team's road trip.

Fantasy Tip: This will likely keep the Rockies from being able to trade Betancourt before Wednesday's July 31 non-waiver trade deadline, which is unfortunate for Rex Brothers owners. However, Brothers will continue to serve as the closer, and Betancourt might not be back until mid-August or later.
