Rafael Betancourt to DL, Rex Brothers is the Add
Colorado Rockies closer, Rafael Betancourt, has officially been placed on the DL. Rex Brothers will close in the interim. If you play in a
legitimate roto league and have less than four closers, add him now.
I added Brothers to all my rosters minutes after Betancourt first left a game injured 11 days ago. It was then reported that he would not require a trip to the DL. I held him until he successfully converted a save and proved himself healthy. Evidently it was a mirage, because he would turn around and blow the subsequent save opportunity and will now hit the DL. If he is still available (maybe some schmuck dropped him in your league too) add him now.
