by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(3/31/2015) The Rockies sent Chad Bettis to the minor leagues on March 22, but he's still in the running for a spot in the rotation. 

Bettis was sent down to get consistent innings and to work on changes to his motion. Over the last nine days, he's returned to the Major League team twice to pitch in games. 

"We have open competition and he's still in the mix," manager Walt Weiss said.

by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(3/22/2015) The Rockies optioned three players and reassigned nine other to their minor league camp on Sunday. 

Optioned to the minors were

RHP Chad Bettis, who is converting from relief to a starting pitcher. He didn't allow a run in five spring innings. "He's in a good place," manager Walt Weiss said, per the Denver Post. "There's some clarity in his role and what he needs to do. It was a positive camp for him."

First baseman Ben Paulsen, who had a .108 spring average. "He hasn't had a great spring," Weiss said. "But that doesn't diminish what I think of the guy."

LHP Chris Rusin, who had a 6.43 spring ERA. 

Reassigned to minor league camp were: LHP Kraig Sitton, LHP Aaron Laffey, LHP John Lannan, RHP Jair Jurrjens, RHP Brett Marshall, catcher Audry Perez, infielders Trevor Story and Omar Quintanilla, and outfielder Roger Bernadina.


Chad Bettis makes first start of spring for Rockies


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(3/17/2015) Rockies pitcher Chad Bettis made his spring debut as a starter on Tuesday.

Bettis has spent the spring being converted from the bullpen. He worked on flaws in his delivery during side sessions and made an appearance against a college team in a B-squad game. 

Tuesday, he took the mound against the Angels and impressed. 

Bettis pitched two shutout innings, allowing one hit and one walk. Bettis fanned two of the eight batters he faced and threw 21 strikes in his 33 pitches. 

"It's nice to face guys that are going to be there every day -- it's something that you can't duplicate in simulated games," Bettis said, according to MLB.com's Thomas Harding.


Rockies' Chad Bettis to compete for starting role


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(2/27/2015) Rockies pitcher Chad Bettis spent most of 2014 as a reliever but was converted into a starter late in the year and will compete for a rotation spot this spring, MLB.com reports.

"It was relief, so to speak," Bettis said. "I was back at home. I was at ease with it. And I had it cut out this offseason trying to get back to where I was starting-wise. It's definitely a good thing. I've been through it before, competing for a spot. But it's controlling what you can and keeping it as simple as you can."

Bettis also said he, his coaches and manager Walt Weiss felt he has to sharpen the location of his fastball, which has had "inconsistent movement … they brought that to my attention, and I completely agree."

Bettis posted a 9.12 ERA and 13:10 K:BB ratio in 24 2/3 innings out of the bullpen in 2014. He also made 20 appearances with Triple-A Colorado Springs, including five starts, and posted a 3.09 ERA and 55:21 K:BB ratio in 55 1/3 innings.

Chad Bettis likely to remain in bullpen for 2014


by Al Melchior | Data Analyst

Rockies send Chad Bettis to bullpen


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/11/2013) The Rockies have sent pitcher Chad Bettis to the bullpen for the remainder of the season in order to evaluate Roy Oswalt, MLB.com reports. Bettis has previous experience both starting and working in relief but has said he prefers to start.

"I think you have to make the determination whether a guy is maybe more of a sprinter versus a guy who can go through a lineup three times in a row," manager Walt Weiss told MLB.com. "Some of that comes down to mechanics, some of it comes down to mentality and some of it comes down to stuff. You put that all together and you make that determination. But with some guys it's not that easy and it's a tough call. You can make a case, certainly in Chad's case, you can make a case either way."

Bettis, who pitched a scoreless inning Wednesday, is 0-3 with a 4.89 ERA, 1.66 WHIP and 24:18 K:BB ratio in 38 2/3 innings.


Chad Bettis lifted early in loss


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/8/2013) Rockies starting pitcher Chad Bettis pitched better this time around Sunday against the Padres, but was pulled after just three innings of work.

Bettis opened the game with three scoreless innings, while allowing just two hits. He struck out four batters, while throwing 31 of 48 pitches for strikes.

Bettis' early exit appears to have come so the Rockies could get Roy Oswalt extra work, as Oswalt ended up pitching longer than Bettis. There does not appear to be any physical issues with Bettis. The Rockies would go on to lose, 5-2. 

Bettis carries an 0-3 record and 5.02 ERA into his next start, scheduled for Saturday against the Diamondbacks.
