2012 MLB Trade Deadline: Jason Giambi, Rafael Betancourt Are Rockies Players Who Could Be Dealt

CBS Sports' Jon Heyman is already looking ahead to the potential moves that could be made across baseball around the trade deadline. He has compiled a list of 45 players he thinks are likely to become trade bait and includes several players from the Colorado Rockies. Here are his thoughts on Rafael Betancourt:

20. Rafael Betancourt, RP, Rockies: His name seems to come up every July, but it might be of particular interest now that so many teams have back-end bullpen issues. A caveat: The Rockies are historically a strong second-half team and might be reluctant to trade him.
