Player Profile: Chad Bettis

I have one card of Chad Bettis, from 2016 Topps.

Playing career: Chad Bettis pitched in the Rockies’ bullpen in 2013 and 2014, and made the starting rotation in 2015, going 8-6 with a 4.23 ERA. He had his best season yet in 2016, going 14-8 with a 4.79 ERA in 32 starts.

Where he is now: Unfortunately Bettis is currently undergoing chemotherapy for testicular cancer. He hopes to return to the Rockies by mid-summer.

My memory: Only know him from his card.

Google Autocomplete results: He is ninth when you type Chad B, between Chad Bachelorette Twitter, referring to a reality show contestant, and Chad Brown Trainer, referring to a horse trainer. Another prominent Chad Bettis is an attorney in South Carolina.

Coming up next: The next profile will be Jeff Bianchi.
