Colorado Rockies place Brett Anderson on 60-day disabled list


The Colorado Rockies made several roster moves today in regards to their pitching.

First move they made was transferring left-handed pitcher Brett Anderson to the 60-day disabled list in order to make room on the 40-man roster for right-hander Chris Martin. Anderson is out until the end of May with a fractured left index finger. Anderson was originally placed on the 15-day disabled list.

Martin is a 27 year old relief pitcher who posted a terrible 8.22 ERA and 11/3 K/BB ratio over seven and two-third innings in the Minors with Triple-A Colorado Springs. He was acquired by the Colorado Rockies in a trade that sent Jonathan Herrera to the 2013 World Series Champions.

Right-hander Chad Bettis was optioned to Triple-A Colorado Springs as he has struggled out of the Rockies bullpen. Bettis posted a 7.15 ERA, 1.41 WHIP and 7/3 K/BB ratio over 11 and one-third innings with the big league club. The 24 year old could end up being called up later on in the year, more than likely in September.
