Chad Bettis

Scouting Report: Chad Bettis will be making his major league debut tonight and, as a result, there's no PITCH f/x information on him at the moment. According to reports, he'll feature a low-90s fastball, but his slider might be his best pitch. In addition to the fastball-slider combo, the righty will throw a changeup that's fringy to average depending on the day. Bettis missed all of 2012 with a shoulder injury, but he dominated AA to start this season - 3.71 ERA, 26% K%, 5% BB%.
