Rockies' Bettis to complete his comeback by starting Monday
MIAMI (AP) Colorado Rockies right-hander Chad Bettis will complete his comeback from chemotherapy for testicular cancer by starting Monday night's game in Denver against Atlanta.
The 28-year-old Bettis finished his last round of treatment in May, two months after doctors discovered his testicular cancer had spread. He had surgery in November to remove the cancer, but it returned and he was forced to leave the team in March for chemotherapy.
The game will be Bettis' first since Sept. 30. He went 14-8 for the Rockies last year.
