Phillies scour Red Sox chain for potential Cole Hamels swap
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(5/1/15) Though the Phillies would still insist on top talents such as outfielder Mookie Betts or catcher Blake Swihart as a starting point in a trade that sends ace Cole Hamels to Boston, they are also impressed with outfielder Manny Margot, reports CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman.
The Red Sox remain the favorite to land Hamels due to their talent depth in the farm system and their desire to snag a top-flight starter.
Betts, however, might come with a bit of concern, according to one scout, who texted that though he's a good athlete, "I'm not sure about his ability to hit. You have to hit. He likes the ball in ... can't hit the ball away."
As for Swihart, the same scout reported that he's ready for the big leagues offensively, but not defensively.
Margot is off to a superb start at Class A Advanced Salem. He boasts a slash line of .324/.377/.515 in 68 at-bats with 16 runs scored and nine stolen bases.
Red Sox's Mookie Betts smacks walkoff single vs. Blue Jays
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(4/28/15) Red Sox center fielder Mookie Betts went 3 for 4 with a walk, a double and a walkoff RBI single in his team's 6-5 win over the Blue Jays.
"I wasn't expecting slider," Betts said after the game about his game-winning hit off Miguel Castro with Xander Bogaerts and Ryan Hanigan in scoring position, per MLB.com. "I was stuck on 100 [mph]. He threw it, I recognized it, saw it in the dirt. Good job by Bogey and Hanny to move up. He didn't want to throw another one in the dirt. I was just ready for a fastball."
Betts has been stuck in a bit of a rut and was 0 for 9 in his last two games heading into Monday.
"You know, you see the looseness in his hands, and when he generates that rhythm, the bat speed is there," manager John Farrell said. "He didn't miss a couple of fastballs [down the] middle of the plate. The one thing we're seeing in the early going here is after a tough day, he's able to put it behind him."
Betts has hit .218/.303/.333 with two home runs, 10 RBI and five stolen bases in 78 at-bats.
Not starting Mookie Betts Saturday no reflection of recent slump
|by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer|
|(4/18/15) Mookie Betts' recent 0-for-7 slide isn't the reason Red Sox manager John Farrell didn't start him Saturday against the Orioles, reports WEEI.com.
With the O's starting right-hander Chris Tillman, who's considered tough with a heavy sinker, Farrell wants to get utility-man Brock Holt some at-bats.
"A way to get Brock in the lineup," Farrell said. "He has swung the bat well in limited looks against Tillman and our goal, and my personal goal, is to get Brock [in the lineup] and keep him in the mix as much as possible."
Brock Holt gets start for Mookie Betts in Red Sox's Saturday lineup
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(4/18/15) Red Sox center fielder Mookie Betts was not in the team's starting lineup for Saturday's game against the Orioles.
Brock Holt replaced Betts in center and will lead off for Boston. Holt has appeared in five games and is hitting .533 in 15 at bats.
Red Sox's Ortiz: Mookie Betts is 'going to be a superstar'
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(4/14/15) Red Sox center fielder Mookie Betts delivered several amazing plays in Monday's 9-4 win over the Nationals, prompting designated hitter David Ortiz to call the young outfielder a future superstar, MLB.com reports.
"He's a kid, an unbelievable athlete," Ortiz said. "It's how hard he works and the way he tries to do something different every day. At that age, as smart as he is, his athleticism and the way he approaches the game, it's a no-doubter that he's going to be a superstar."
Betts robbed Nationals right fielder Bryce Harper of a home run in the top of the first inning. He then drew a walk to lead off the bottom of the first and stole second base and third base on the same play when he noticed the Nationals weren't covering third. He then delivered a three-run home run over the Green Monster in the bottom of the second inning and added an RBI infield single in the bottom of the third.
"That he's just 22 years old, that's the surprising part," said shortstop Xander Bogaerts, who is also 22. "He takes advantage of everything you give him, any mistake. I've talked to him a few days. I've seen him go through a few tough days. I told him, 'Don't change anything; just really be yourself.'"
Betts has hit .233/.294/.467 with two home runs, six RBI and two stolen bases in 30 at-bats.
|2014 summary: Mookie Betts didn't wow Fantasy owners in his initial callup to the majors, and when Shane Victorino was activated just over three weeks later, the 21-year-old was sent back to Triple-A Pawtucket. Nearly a month after that, the Red Sox called upon Betts to replace Jackie Bradley as their starting center fielder, and this time, he made a huge impression. In 39 games, Betts batted .304, compiled a .391 on-base percentage and delivered four home runs and six stolen bases.|
Playing time status: Betts served as the team's starting second baseman down the stretch, but with Dustin Pedroia expected to be fully recovered from his wrist injury, he will have to earn a spot in the outfield if he is to get regular playing time. Though Betts will have to face some competition, it's conceivable that he could settle into a steady starting role.
2015 outlook: Betts won't likely carry your team in any given category, but he's a well-rounded talent who should hit for average while producing double-digit home runs and steals. A high walk-to-strikeout ratio should make him valuable in points leagues, so Betts is worthy of a mid- to late-round pick in all standard mixed league formats.
