Betancourt (elbow) has returned to action at Triple-A Colorado Springs, tossing scoreless innings in his first two appearances.
After a 14-outing rehab assignment with rookie-level Grand Junction, Betancourt has entered the final stage of his comeback from Tommy John surgery last September. He's still in the process of building his arm back up, but Betancourt hasn't seemed to endure any setbacks or diminished effectiveness despite the missed action. Look for him to return to the Rockies at some point in September, where he could immediately be inserted into a high-leverage role in the team's hapless bullpen.
