Colorado Rockies manager Walt Weiss said both RPs Rex Brothers and LaTroy Hawkins were unavailable to pitch Thursday, April 3. RP Chad Bettis would have closed if a save situation would have presented itself.
Fantasy Tip: That explains why Matt Belisle was on in the eighth inning with a one-run lead against the Miami Marlins. Belisle allowed four runs to be saddled with the loss.

Colorado Rockies manager Walt Weiss said RP Chad Bettis would have a spot on the opening day roster. RP Boone Logan (elbow), however, is a "long shot" to avoid starting the year on the disabled list as he recovers from an offseason elbow cleanup surgery. Logan is throwing in minor league games, and he might be eligible to return April 5.

Colorado Rockies RP Chad Bettis appears likely to be headed for a bullpen spot, even if temporarily, with RP Boone Logan (elbow) likely headed for the 15-day disabled list to open the season.

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.

Colorado Rockies SP Roy Oswalt (hamstring) is expected to be activated to pitch Sunday, Sept. 8, against the San Diego Padres. It's uncertain if he will work out of the bullpen or start in place of SP Chad Bettis, as manager Walt Weiss is still trying to decide.

The Colorado Rockies placed SP Tyler Chatwood (elbow) on the 15-day disabled list with right elbow inflammation Thursday, Aug. 8. In corresponding moves, they recalled P Jeff Manship from the minors and placed SP Christian Friedrich (back) on the 60-day DL. "Tyler threw a bullpen (Tuesday), really to test his hamstring," manager Walt Weiss said. "Then today he had inflammation in his elbow. Tyler has been really good. When it rains it pours. That's a guy you would love to run out there when we are struggling like we are."
Fantasy Tip: Chad Bettis could stay in the rotation now, or the team could turn to Jeff Francis to take Chatwood's spot. Bettis probably makes more sense, but he should only be an option in NL-only leagues.
