Mets' Dellin Betances: Velocity still not back
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Betances topped out at 92-93 mph with his fastball during a recent simulated game, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.

While manager Luis Rojas stressed that the club didn't have radar readings on the right-hander's work during an intrasquad game Wednesday, it's less than reassuring that Betances hasn't come close to the 98 mph he was averaging a couple years ago with the Yankees. The 32-year-old is still expected to fill a high-leverage role in the Mets' bullpen this season, but after barely pitching during an injury-plagued 2019, Betances has a lot to prove.

Mets' Dellin Betances: Feels good after shutdown
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Betances faced seven batters in a simulated game Sunday and indicated that he feels healthy and ready to go ahead of the 60-game season, Anthony DiComo of reports.

Betances had already been cleared for full activities back in the spring, but he looked fairly rusty at that time after a lat injury and a partially torn left Achilles' tendon limited him to just one big-league appearance in 2019. The right-hander indicated that baseball's three-plus-month hiatus allowed him to complete more rehab for the Achilles injury from April through June at Impact Zone in New Jersey, where he was able to throw live batting practice against several other MLB hitters. Manager Luis Rojas seemed similarly encouraged by how Betances looks early in summer camp, as he named the 32-year-old as a potential member of a closer committee that may also include Edwin Diaz, Jeurys Familia and Seth Lugo.

Mets' Dellin Betances: Unimpressive in spring debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Betances topped out at 90 mph with his fastball in his spring debut Saturday, David Lennon of Newsday reports.

The right-hander did record his lone out via strikeout, but Betances also walked two batters and gave up a two-run single to the Nats' Ryan Zimmerman. The velocity is far from where he's used to working -- he averaged 97.8 mph on his heater as recently as 2018 -- but after barely pitching last season and getting a late start to camp as he recovered from an Achilles injury, it's not surprising Betances has a lot of rust to shake off. The Mets are still hoping he'll be ready to go for Opening Day, but he'll need to show significant improvement over the next couple of weeks for that to be a realistic timetable.

Mets' Dellin Betances: Spring debut set for Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Betances (Achilles) is scheduled to make his Grapefruit League debut Saturday against the Nationals, Mike Puma of the New York Post reports.

While Betances' velocity hasn't been where he wants it to be during his throwing sessions this spring, he's at least feeling fine from a physical standpoint after he ruptured his left Achilles' tendon last September. After signing Betances to a one-year, $10.5 million deal this winter, the Mets clearly envision the right-hander being a weapon at the back end of the bullpen, but he may be eased into high-leverage work coming off an injury-ruined 2019 campaign. Before suffering the torn Achilles in his lone big-league appearance of the season, Betances had been sidelined with shoulder and lat issues.

Mets' Dellin Betances: Downplays low velocity
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Betances (Achilles) isn't throwing with his usual velocity but isn't concerned, Anthony Rieber of Newsday reports.

Betances similarly downplayed velocity concerns last spring but went on to face just two batters in the regular season, first due to a shoulder injury and then because of a torn Achilles tendon. He's still working his way back from that Achilles issue this spring and has yet to make a Grapefruit League appearance.

Mets' Dellin Betances: Faces live batters
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Betances faced live batters for the first time since partially tearing his Achilles in September, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.

Betances reported no setbacks after the work, saying, "It's always good to get the first one out of the way." He entered camp still limited by his injury, and it's unclear whether he has cleared the hurdles necessary to fully participate in team workouts. Still, this was a step forward for Betances, who expects to be ready to take the mound by Opening Day.

Mets' Dellin Betances: Still limited to start camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Betances (Achilles) isn't yet fully participating in team workouts, Tim Britton of The Athletic reports.

Betances recorded just two outs last season, missing the majority of the year with a bone spur in his shoulder and getting shut down after his first appearance in mid-September with a torn Achilles tendon. The reliever said upon his arrival to camp that he expected to be ready to go by Opening Day, but for now, he still has some work to do with the Mets' training staff.

Mets' Dellin Betances: Expects to be ready for Opening Day
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Betances (Achilles) said Tuesday that he'd be ready for Opening Day, Justin Toscano of The Bergen Record reports.

A lat injury and an Achilles injury combined to limit Betances to a single big-league appearance last season. A player's optimism about his own health should never be taken as gospel, but it's still good to hear. Whether or not he'll actually be ready for the start of the season should become clear after he begins throwing in spring training games.

Mets' Dellin Betances: Signs with Mets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Betances (Achilles) agreed to a one-year, $10.5 million contract with the Mets on Tuesday, Andy Martino of reports.

The right-hander suffered an Achilles injury in the middle of September after dealing with a lat injury earlier in the season, but he is expected to fill a key setup role for the Mets and could slide into the closer role if Edwin Diaz's struggles persist. Betances is expected to be ready for spring training.

Yankees' Dellin Betances: Won't need surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Betances (Achilles) got a second opinion and will not require surgery, Mike Mazzeo of Yahoo Sports reports.

He will be in a walking boot for a month and will then be reevaluated. The expectation is that he will be ready for spring training, but he is also a free agent after this season, which complicates things a little, as he could probably get a better contract if he is able to throw for teams once fully healthy and looks like his old self.

Yankees' Dellin Betances: Placed on 60-day injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Betances (Achilles) was placed on the 60-day injured list Wednesday.

The move is purely procedural, as Betances had already been ruled out for the season with a torn left Achilles. Shoulder, lat, and Achilles issues held him to just two-thirds of an inning all season, his final one before free agency. The transaction clears a spot on the 40-man roster for the Yankees to activate Giancarlo Stanton (knee) from the 60-day injured list.

Yankees' Dellin Betances: Suffers partially torn Achilles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Betances has a partial tear of his left Achilles' tendon, Mike Mazzeo of Yahoo Sports reports.

He apparently landed awkwardly on the mound in his appearance Sunday and went through testing Tuesday. Surgery is not being recommended at this time but he is going for a second opinion, so surgery is not off the table either. Regardless, it's safe to say Betances' season is over. He had only just returned from a shoulder injury that wiped out almost his whole season. He is a free agent this offseason, so this injury couldn't have come at a worse time.

Yankees' Dellin Betances: Whiffs two in 2019 debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Betances struck out both batters he faced in Sunday's tilt with the Blue Jays.

Betances, making his season debut after a lengthy recovery from shoulder and lat injuries, came on in the fourth inning and made quick work of Toronto, needing a mere eight pitches to strike out Reese McGuire and Brandon Drury. The 31-year-old figures to be eased back into action as he hurled only three rehab innings prior to joining the Yankees. Betances' primary focus is reestablishing his velocity; his fastball topped out at 95 mph Sunday, a significant downturn from the triple-digits he was hitting last season.

Yankees' Dellin Betances: Returns from injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Betances (lat) was activated off the 60-day injured list Sunday.

Betances is finally ready for his season debut after battling shoulder and lat issues since mid-March. He recorded a 4:2 K:BB while allowing one earned run in three rehab innings. He dominated hitters to the tune of a 2.70 ERA and a 42.3 percent strikeout rate last season, though he may not be at his full effectiveness right away following such a long absence.

Yankees' Dellin Betances: To be activated Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Betances (lat) will be activated prior to Sunday's game in Toronto, James Wagner of The New York Times reports.

He completed his final rehab appearance Friday and is flying to Toronto to join the team for the final game of this weekend's series. Betances gave up one run while striking out four and walking two in three innings during his rehab assignment. He should assume a high-leverage role fairly quickly in preparation for the postseason.

Yankees' Dellin Betances: Final rehab appearance Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Betances (lat) will pitch Friday for Double-A Trenton, Lindsey Adler of The Athletic reports.

This is expected to be his final rehab appearance before coming off the injured list. He has logged two scoreless innings while striking out three and walking two during his rehab assignment.

Yankees' Dellin Betances: Hoping for one more rehab outing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Betances (lat) is aiming for one more rehab outing with Double-A Trenton, Greg Johnson of The Trentonian reports.

Betances fired one scoreless inning for Trenton in the opening game of the Eastern League Championship Series on Tuesday, allowing one hit and one walk while striking out a pair. He threw 20 pitches, 11 of which were strikes, and his fastball sat in the 92-93 mph range. Although Betances has looked good in both of his rehab outings thus far, he has yet to approach the velocity on his fastball that he demonstrated with the Yankees last season, hence his desire to get into another game in the minors before returning to the big club. Despite not yet pitching in the majors this season, the 31-year-old could still play a key role in New York's bullpen by the end of the playoffs.

Yankees' Dellin Betances: Next rehab outing coming Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Betances (lat) is scheduled to make his next rehab appearance Tuesday for Double-A Trenton, Kyle Franko of The Trentonian reports.

Betances looked good in his first rehab outing with Trenton on Friday, when he tossed a scoreless inning and struck out a batter. The right-hander could make another rehab appearance or two for Trenton after Tuesday as the Yankees look to assess whether he's fit to join the big-league bullpen. Since he's been on the shelf all season, Betances may not be thrust into a high-leverage role right away if he is eventually reinstated to the Yankees' roster.

Yankees' Dellin Betances: Expects to pitch again in Double-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Betances (lat) expects to remain with Double-A Trenton to continue his rehab, Matt Kardos of reports.

Betances made his initial rehab appearance with Trenton on Friday, tossing 19 pitches while picking up one strikeout and allowing a walk and a hit batsman in one scoreless inning. Trenton advanced to the Eastern League Championship series with the win, allowing Betances additional opportunities to pitch in meaningful minor-league games before a potential mid-September return to the Yankees.

Yankees' Dellin Betances: On 15-20 pitch limit Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Betances (lat) will be limited to 15-20 pitches in his rehab outing with Double-A Trenton on Friday, Greg Johnson of The Trentonian reports.

Betances is making his first rehab appearance after dealing with shoulder and lat issues all season, so he will be eased into action with a one-inning outing Friday. The Yankees are hoping Betances will be ready to rejoin the big club by mid-September.
