38-year old righty closer Rafael Betancourt keeps rolling along for the Rockies in 2013.  He has pitched in 13 games (0 starts) for the Rockies so far this year and he is 1-0 with 8 saves, a 1.46 ERA and a 0.89 WHIP.  He has only given up 5 hits and 6 walks while whiffing 8 batters in his first 12 1/3 innings this year, which is impressive.  Betancourt has now pitched in 245 games (0 starts) in his first five years with the Rockies and he is 12-6 with 49 saves, a 2.86 ERA and a 0.96 WHIP.  Betancourt is currently #5 in Rockies’ history with his 49 saves and he could move up that list with a bullet if he keeps pitching well in 2013.
