the third best reliever in the NL

Relief pitching performance is challenging to evaluate and even tougher to predict.  I’ve always liked Rafael Betancourt and he’s raised his game in the second half this season, posting a 7-to-1 K/BB rate and 1.5 runs allowed/9.

The Rockies closer has been the best pitcher on the team during a season where they could use an award.  Congrats to Rafael for the first-time All-Star selection.
