Player Notes
Rockies manager Walt Weiss said after Monday's game that he's not ready to "declare a closer."

Advice: Rafael Betancourt recorded two strikeouts in a perfect ninth inning Monday against the Giants to pick up the first save since LaTroy Hawkins' demotion. That might make him the favorite to receive the next opportunity and perhaps run with the role, but Adam Ottavino and possibly others could also get a look. Perhaps the only reason it wasn't Ottavino being used Monday was because he had already pitched Saturday and Sunday.

After LaTroy Hawkins was pulled from the closer role earlier in the day, Rafael Betancourt tossed a perfect ninth inning against the Giants on Monday for his first save of the season.

Advice: It was actually his first save since August 22, 2013. Betancourt struck out two in the spotless frame. Rockies manager Walt Weiss hasn't committed to one pitcher for save chances, so Betancourt could continue to get looks. Adam Ottavino threw 2 1/3 innings between Saturday and Sunday, so he could have gotten the call Monday if he was available. He's the best long-term bet in this bullpen.
