In a relatively small transaction, the Indians have agreed to ship reliever Rafael Betancourt to the Rockies for a Single-A pitcher. As the fantasy player the question is, "Should I care?" To give a short answer: no, not really. Betancourt moves from one setup role to another and with the Rockies recent success, Huston Street is no longer a trade candidate, meaning Betancourt will not be closing games anytime soon unless injury strikes.
If anything Betancourt is hurt by the trade—as you would suspect for any pitcher moving to Coors—and the park could affect him more than it might other pitchers because he is primarily a flyball pitcher (career FB% rate of about 50 percent).
