The Colorado Rockies placed OF Michael Cuddyer (shoulder) on the 15-day day disabled list with a left shoulder strain Monday, June 9. SP Eddie Butler (shoulder) was also put on the DL with right rotator cuff inflammation. In corresponding moves, the team recalled SP Christian Bergman and RP Chad Bettis from Triple-A Colorado Springs and designated RP Wilton Lopez for assignment.
Fantasy Tip: This is Cuddyer's second trip to the DL this year. This time, some combination of Drew Stubbs and Brandon Barnes should fill in for Cuddyer with Carlos Gonzalez (finger, knee) also sidelined. Stubbs and Barnes are short-term candidates for an addition as NL-only outfield depth.

Colorado Rockies manager Walt Weiss said he has been happy with how P Chad Bettis has performed his last three outings because he is using his changeup. "It's a matter of throwing his changeup enough so it gets hitters off his fastball. He's got such a great changeup, a power changeup, and it bottoms out. When a hitter sees that, it puts some doubt in his mind in fastball counts," Weiss said. Bettis has pitched 3 2/3 scoreless innings in his last three outings after allowing runs on three of his first four outings.

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.
