TORONTO (AP) - The Cleveland Indians have traded reliever Rafael
Betancourt to Colorado.

The Rockies, currently nine games behind the first-place Los Angeles Dodgers in the NL West, sent minor league pitcher Connor Graham to the Indians.

In 29 appearances this season, Betancourt is 1-2 with a 3.52 ERA. The right-hander has given up 25 hits and struck out 32 in 30 2-3 innings.

Betancourt has been primarily a set-up man since joining the Indians in 2003. He had a 1.47 ERA in 68 games when the Indians made the playoffs in 2007.

The 6-foot-7 Graham has spent the entire season with Class A Modesto of the California League. The 24-year-old went 7-4 with a 3.14 ERA in 16 starts.
