Report: Rafael Betancourt may have torn elbow ligaments
According to a published report, Rockies closer Rafael Betancourt may be facing a career-threatening elbow injury.
Betancourt felt discomfort during the course of blowing the save on Wednesday night. "It's not good," Betancourt said. "It's very sore right now. I have gone through a lot of pain throughout my whole career, but this is completely different. I could not throw another pitch."
This season, Betancourt has pitched to a 3.54 ERA, 1.25 WHIP and 2.45 K/BB ratio in 31 appearances. For his career, he owns an impressive ERA+ of 141 across parts of 11 major-league seasons.
Rex Brothers will now step back into the closer's role for Colorado.
