Rockies P Rafael Betancourt earns first save of season
by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

Rockies pitcher Rafael Betancourt picked up the save during Monday's 2-0 win over the Giants.

Betancourt was given the opportunity for the save after manager Walt Weiss said LaTroy Hawkins would get a break from closing responsibilities. Betancourt pitched a perfect ninth inning Monday, striking out two batters to earn his first save of the season.

Rockies' LaTroy Hawkins removed from closer role
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Rockies manager Walt Weiss said Monday that pitcher LaTroy Hawkins will get "a break" from closing duties, the Denver Post reports.

"We have decided to give 'Hawk a break in that role," manager Walt Weiss said before Monday's game. "We're just trying to give him a little bit of a breather for the time being."

Rafael Betancourt will be in line to get a save opportunity Monday if needed, but the team could also use Adam Ottavino, John Axford or Boone Logan in the role. Ottavino, who the manager cited specifically as one player who would be used in the role, is likely unavailable Monday after pitching Saturday and Sunday but has racked up seven strikeouts in 4 1/3 scoreless innings while allowing just one hit and one walk.

Axford was signed this offseason as potential insurance in the ninth inning, but he's away from the team due to a family medical emergency. Logan has tossed three perfect innings in three appearaces.

Rafael Betancourt, Rafael Ynoa land spots on Rockies
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

The Rockies purchased the contract of pitcher Rafael Betancourt while also informing infielder Rafael Ynoa that he has made the team's Opening Day roster Wednesday, MLB.com reports.

Betancourt, who turns 40 in late April, didn't pitch last season while recovering from an elbow injury, but he was able to land a spot in the Rockies bullpen by giving up just one earned run in 7 2/3 innings while striking out nine and walking one. He'll join closer LaTroy Hawkins, 42, in giving the Rockies' bullpen a pair of the league's eldest statesmen.

Ynoa earned his spot by hitting .309/.333/.364 in 55 spring at-bats.

Rockies P Rafael Betancourt will soon learn spring training fate
by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com

Rockies reliever Rafael Betancourt hasn't been in the position of wondering about his major-league fate for quite some time. 

But coming off of Tommy John surgery in 2013, Betancourt is unsure if he'll be on the 25-man roster when camp breaks. He's posted a 1.17 ERA in eight appearances, which should help his chances. But the Rockies possess enough depth where he could wind up in the minors. 

But Betancourt said he's approached every spring training with the mindset that he could be sent to the minors, even when his job security was great. 

"I'm not lying, but every spring training — I've never said this, and maybe it's the right time to say it — but even when I had guaranteed contracts and all that, I felt I needed to do my job to be on the team," Betancourt said, via MLB.com

Before his elbow injury, Betancourt had a 4.08 ERA in 28.2 innings pitched during the 2013 season.

Rockies' Weiss: Rafael Betancourt 'is amazing'
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Rockies pitcher Rafael Betancourt made his second appearance Wednesday since suffering a bruised jaw on a comebacker, allowing one hit and one walk in one scoreless inning while striking out two.

"Yeah, Rafi, Rafi is amazing," manager Walt Weiss said after the outing, per MLB.com. "He still has that pinpoint command. He can clip the corners with everything he throws. He's still very effective."

Betancourt is in camp as a nonroster invitee and looking to win a spot in the rotation, but Weiss wouldn't say whether the veteran has a leg up in the competition.

"He's still battling for a spot," Weiss said.

"I don't like to see it like that," Betancourt said. "Everyone here has a chance to make this team. But those kind of things are coming from the front office, the coaches, the manager. They're the ones who are going to make those decisions. For me, I just need to keep working hard. It's always been that way for me."

Betancourt has surrendered just one earned run in 5 2/3 spring innings while striking out eight and walking one.
