RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016

Subscribe now to see our 2016 outlook.

2015

The Rockies pulled the plug on grooming Bettis as a starter last spring, reasoning that his powerful fastball/slider mix would fare better in a max-effort relief role. While the right-hander was able to coax a good amount of velocity out of that combination, a lack of location and movement on those pitches made life easy for opposing hitters, who thumped Bettis to the tune of a 9.12 ERA over 24.2 frames. The 25-year-old rebounded swiftly (3.09 ERA, 8.9 K/9 rate in 55.1 innings) during his time at Triple-A Colorado Springs, but the dropoff in competition might have played a larger part in those successes than any adjustments he made. Bettis’ brutal results in relief prompted the Rockies to give him the opportunity to compete for a starting role during the upcoming season, but serious questions remain about whether he’ll ever be able to make good on the potential that once made him a top pitching prospect in the organization.

2014

After he was sidelined for the entire 2012 season with a shoulder injury, Bettis quickly showed some renewed promise at Double-A Tulsa, where he dominated with a 68:13 K:BB ratio over 12 starts. Although it would have been ideal to allow him to log a full season in the minors coming off a major injury, the Rockies were in desperate need for a fifth starter in July and eventually tabbed the right-hander for the role. He proved ill-prepared for the promotion, as control issues and a proclivity toward big innings amounted to a 5.64 ERA in his 44.2 frames. The Rockies still remain high on Bettis' potential, but there appears to be some division in the organization regarding the pitcher's future. Though some feel the former college closer's big fastball and sharp slider would make him most amenable to a relief role, others feel that with more minor league seasoning, he can still develop into a quality major league starter. He'll likely open the season at Triple-A, as the Rockies attempt to figure out that dilemma.

2012

The California League offered little challenge to Bettis last season, as he racked up an impressive 184:45 K:BB and led the league in innings, strikeouts and WHIP last season. A second-round pick out of Texas Tech in 2012, Bettis should move quickly through the Rockies system and will begin 2012 at Double-A. There are concerns about his secondary pitches, but Bettis has a high-90s fastball and plus slider and at the very least projects as a potential closer if he's unable to remain starter. For now, he'll be a future target for the rotation, and he'll likely vault onto more prospect lists in 2012 if the strikeouts follow him to Tulsa.
