Yankees shut down Dellin Betances


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/27/2014) Yankees pitcher Dellin Betances will not pitch in the final weekend of the season, Newsday reports.

Manager Joe Girardi said before Saturday's game that Betances had pitched enough innings this season. The reliever hasn't made an appearance since Tuesday. Betances finishes the year with a 1.40 ERA and 135:24 K:BB ratio in 90 innings over 70 appearances.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/7/2014) One day after being named to the American League All-Star team, Yankees pitcher Dellin Betances pitched two scoreless innings to pick up his first career save in Monday's 5-3 win over the Indians.

Betances needed just 15 pitches to rack up six outs, giving up one hit in his two innings of action and striking out one. He's been one of the best relievers in baseball this season, posting a 1.55 ERA, 0.75 WHIP and 79:16 K:BB ratio in 52 1/3 innings.

Dellin Betances records fourth win Tuesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6/11/2014) Yankees pitcher Dellin Betances earned a win Tuesday after giving up one earned run on two hits in 1 1/3 innings and striking out two in his team's 3-2 victory over the Mariners.

Betances (4-0) was charged with a blown save after allowing the game to be tied up in the seventh inning, but the Yankees were able to score the go-ahead run in the top of the eighth and get him another win. Betances owns a 1.69 ERA, 0.78 WHIP and 63:10 K:BB ratio in 37 1/3 innings.


Time to take Dellin Betances seriously


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/2/2014) Some Rotisserie league owners caught on to what Dellin Betances was doing in April and added him then. But the majority, not wanting to limit their pitching staffs' upside by committing a spot to a middle reliever, wanted to figure out what they had -- or what they could have -- at starting pitcher first.

After all, turning to a middle reliever is supposed to be a last resort. What little you gain in ERA and WHIP, you more than give up in strikeouts and wins.

Except in Betances' case, maybe not. For more on why he needs to be added in the 62 percent of leagues where he's still available (or at least all Rotisserie formats), check out my latest post on the Fantasy Baseball Today blog.


Dellin Betances looks like Yanks' closer of the future


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(6/2/2014) Yankees reliever Dellin Betances was "scary good" on Sunday against the Twins, reaffirming his status as New York's closer of the future, reports ESPN.com. Betances needed 10 pitches to strike out the side in the sixth inning.

The website expects Betances to push for the closer's job as early as 2015. Betances is 3-0 with a 1.38 ERA and 56 strikeouts in 32 2/3 innings.


Dellin Betances becoming an option in deep formats


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(5/28/2014) It's not often we get to talk about middle relievers in Fantasy Baseball, but Yankees reliever Dellin Betances deserves some recognition for his performance through the first two months.

In case you were unaware, the former minor-league starter has been nothing short of outstanding. He is 3-0 with a 1.48 ERA and 0.79 WHIP in 21 appearances. He also has 51 strikeouts to nine walks in 30 1/3 innings. That is not a typo. He is striking out 15.1 batters per nine innings. 

Betances had a good strikeout rate in the minors (10.1 K/9), but his high walk rate became a real issue when he got to the high minors, which is why he was converted to a reliever. Betances might not go back to starting and surely is proving he could thrive as a closer, but that role belongs to David Robertson, who could hold it for a very long time.

Betances is proving to be valuable as a versatile right-handed reliever for the Yankees. He does have four holds and might work his way into a setup role later in the season, but his Fantasy value is best left for Rotisserie formats and categories leagues.


Dellin Betances Ks 6 in relief win over Mets


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(5/15/2014) Yankees reliever Dellin Betances pitched well and was awarded his second relief win on Thursday against the Mets. Betances relieved Chase Whitley and struck out six in 2 1/3 perfect innings. He owns a 1.61 ERA and a 0.94 WHIP in 22.1 innings pitched.

Dellin Betances earns win after two scoreless innings


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(4/26/2014) Yankees reliever Dellin Betances earned his first win of the season Saturday against the Angels.

Betances was a victim of circumstance, taking over in the fifth inning, but he also pitched well during the outing. With a man on first, Betances balked to move him to second. He was able to entice two groundouts, and got out of the fifth inning without allowing a run. 

He was more effective in the sixth, striking out two batters while pitching around a walk. Betances started the seventh inning with a strikeout, but allowed a hit to the next batter. He was replaced after throwing two scoreless innings.

Betances allowed one hit and one walk in the outing. He struck out three.


Yankees announce winners of last two pitching spots


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(3/28/2014) Promising right-hander Dellin Betances and left-hander Vidal Nuno have snagged the last two spots on the Yankees pitching staff for the regular season.

Betances earned his place on the roster by surrendering just one earned run in 12 1/3 innings in exhibition competition. Nuno lost his shot at a starting job, but managed to hang on for a bullpen role.


Dellin Betances gunning for spot in Yankees bullpen


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/5/2014) Yankees pitcher Dellin Betances allowed one walk while striking out two in 1 2/3 scoreless innings in Wednesday's 5-4 loss to the Rays.

Betances, a former starter who was converted into a reliever by the organization, has an option left but it trying to win a spot in the team's opening-day bullpen.

"I knew coming in that there were opportunities, that there were spots available," Betances told MLB.com. "I knew coming in that I had to come in strong and have a good Spring Training. I'm just going to try to keep doing whatever I have to do every time out."

Betances went 6-4 with a 2.68 ERA and 108:42 K:BB ratio in 84 innings with Triple-A Scranton Wilkes-Barre last season.


Scout: Dellin Betances could play key role for Yankees in 2014


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(2/12/2014) Standout minor league right-hander Dellin Betances could make an impact with the Yankees this season.

The 25-year-old Betances has consistently struck out more than a batter an inning since launching his professional career in 2006, yet has pitched just eight games in the majors. But he could prove beneficial to a potentially weak Yankees bullpen that has lost Mariano Rivera to retirement.

"I think it's very possible to expect quality numbers," an unnamed scout told the New York Daily News. "(He can be) very successful out of the bullpen. He needs a chance, to gain confidence."

Betances managed his best season in 2013 at Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes Barre with a 6-4 record and 108 strikeouts in 84 innings.


Dellin Betances won't play winter ball


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(10/7/2013) Yankees pitcher Dellin Betances will not likely play winter ball in the offseason, The Journal News reports Monday. The Yankees would prefer he get ready for an important spring training.

"It’s doubtful right now," senior vice president of baseball operations Mark Newman said.

Betances, as a starter for Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre this season, had a 6.00 ERA over 24 innings. He gave up 19 hits, 19 earned runs, 16 walks and struck out 25 batters. As a reliever, Betances had an ERA of just 1.35 over 60 innings.

Yankees bring up prospect Dellin Betances


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(5/16/2013) The Yankees recalled pitcher Dellin Betances from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Thursday and optioned Brett Marshall back to the Triple-A team. Betances, who was once a top starting pitcher prospect, will work in relief.

Betances was recently shifted to the bullpen at Triple-A. He's allowed a run on two hits and a walk in 4 1/3 innings as a reliever this year. He also struck out four.


Dellin Betances bumped to bullpen


by Bill Passonno | CBSSports.com
(5/10/2013) Citing baseball technicalities, Yankees general manager Brian Cashman said Friday that pitching prospect Dellin Betances will move to the bullpen, the New York Post reports. Betances runs out of minor-league options after this season and will be required to make the 25-man roster next year or be subjected to waivers.

"This is the problem with the development clock," Cashman said. "If he had two or three more options, we would keep working with him as a starter. But with him being out of options after this year, it is becoming more obvious that if he is going to help us, it is going to be out of the pen."

The 6-foot-8 Betances has displayed improvement with Triple-A Scranton-Wilkes/Barre recently to even his record at 2-2 and lower his ERA to 6.00. The right-hander threw five no-hit innings during his last start Sunday but has walked 16 in 24 innings this season.


Dellin Betances trying to revive career


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(5/6/2013) Yankees starting pitcher prospect Dellin Betances tossed five shutout innings, leading Triple-A Scranton-Wilkes/Barre to a win Sunday over Gwinnett. He didn't allow a hit, walked four batters and struck out three.

"I felt like I battled early on. It was a tough day today and the weather hasn't been the best, but I was able to make pitches when I needed to and my defense had my back," Betances said, per MLB.com. "My changeup kept me in the game the whole time. I was able to throw it early in the count and behind in the count."

After posting a 13.60 ERA in his first three starts, Betances has managed a 1.76 ERA in his last three starts, lowering his ERA to 6.00. Betances is 2-2 with a .213 opponents' batting average in six starts. He has 25 strikeouts to 16 walks in 24 innings.

Betances, who was once a prized prospect in the Yankees' system, is trying to return to form in 2013. 

"My last year was not a good year," he said. "For me, it's about getting that consistency and being able to get to where I was a couple years ago. It's just a matter of trying not to be too aggressive, staying closed and getting that front extension that will allow me to work down in the zone and throw strikes early on. Then I can mix in the off-speed pitches."


Betances goes to Triple-A


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com

The team also optioned LHPs Manny Banuelos and Nik Turley, RHP Jose Ramirez and OF Ramon Flores to Double-A Trenton. New York also reassigned pitcher Chase Whitley, catcher J.R. Murphy and first baseman Luke Murton to minor league camp.
