Chad Bettis gets deeper into a rehab from cancer in one more step in his Rockies return – The Denver Post – Colorado News

Chad Bettis reached deeper waters Thursday in his fifth minor-league game coming back from cancer. The 28-year-old right-hander certainly is facing a test.

In a Triple-A start for the Albuquerque Isotopes, Bettis pitched into the sixth inning at Round Rock, Texas, before manager Glenallen Hill pulled him after 84 pitches. It was his longest outing to date.

His line was mixed, with eight hits against him for three earned runs (five total). He struck out five batters and walked three. Among his 84 pitches, 55 were strikes.

Bettis will probably start again for the Rockies’ top farm club next week before a likely return to the Rockies rotation.
