Rockies | Rafael Betancourt expecting bad news

Colorado Rockies RP Rafael Betancourt (elbow) underwent an MRI Monday, Aug. 26, and expects "bad news," likely a torn ulnar collateral ligament. That would require Tommy John surgery and likely cost him at least the majority of the 2014 season. The 38-year-old said he's uncertain whether he'd come back following surgery.

Fantasy Tip: Colorado is all but guaranteed to reject their end of a $4.25 mutual option for 2014 if he goes under the knife, which would leave Rex Brothers in line to close next season.
