Rockies pitcher Chad Bettis underwent surgery for testicular cancer last month. He received some good news from his doctor, who said he is now cancer-free. Via MLB Network Radio:

That’s wonderful news and we’re very happy for him.

Bettis, 27, will be entering his fifth season with the Rockies. Across 370 1/3 innings spanning 60 starts and 29 relief appearances, the right-hander has a career 5.01 ERA with a 279/131 K/BB ratio.

To quote Craig in his article about Bettis last month, “Do self-exams and get regular checkups. And read up on it here.”
