Betancourt lands on DL with lingering groin tightness
Summary of 2 articles · Updated Jun 2, 2013
In two of the three games since he was removed from a May 21 appearance because of groin tightness, Betancourt has been touched up for runs in games when wins were within reach. The Colorado Rockies have placed closer Rafael Betancourt on the 15-day disabled list with a strained right groin. Friday night, after Todd Helton tied the Dodgers with a towering two-run homer in the ninth, Betancourt gave up two runs and three hits in the 10th, taking a 7-5 loss. "Raffy's still dealing with the groin, and he's trying to work around that," Weiss said. There have been days with Raffy when I've tried to stay away from him, and fortunately some days I didn't have to use him when he wasn't feeling great."
