News: Bettis (shoulder) will vie for a starting role with the Rockies during spring training, MLB.com's Thomas Harding reports.
Impact: Moved to the bullpen last season in an attempt to bolster his chances of sticking with the big club, Bettis was a total disaster, posting a 9.12 ERA while walking 10 batters over 24.2 innings. He hadn't performed much better as a starter for the Rockies in 2013, either, but that won't prevent the organization from attempting one more last-ditch effort to salvage some value from the hard-throwing right-hander. With at least three of the starting jobs seemingly locked up, Bettis will be forced to compete with all of Jhoulys Chacin, Eddie Butler, Christian Bergman, Jon Gray, Tyler Anderson and John Lannan for two spots.
