Rockies Trade Rumors 2012: Rafael Betancourt Drawing Interest From Orioles, Yankees, Athletics And Others

The prized Colorado Rockies reliever RHP Rafael Betancourt is the subject of the latest MLB trade rumors. According to Troy Renck of The Denver Post, the Baltimore Orioles, New York Yankees and Oakland Athletics have all expressed interest in the 37-year-old closer.

Betancourt currently owns a 3.00 ERA and 2.93 FIP with 17 saves, his fourth-straight season under a 3.00 FIP. The Boston Red Sox and Atlanta Braves had also shown interest in Betancourt earlier in July, and Rencke suggests the Los Angeles Angels and Chicago White Sox -- teams looking for bullpen help -- may also consider Betancourt a target.

He is currently in the 3rd year of a 4-year contract he signed with Rockies in 2009 -- a contract that included a 5th year mutual option. Betancourt is earning $4 million this season and $4.25 million in 2013 and in his 2014 option.
