Red Sox manager: Castillo, Betts, Victorino to rotate in CF and RF
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(5/22/15) Red Sox manager John Farrell says Rusney Castillo will be used in a rotation between right field and center field. Castillo, who was promoted from Triple-A on Friday, will share playing time with both Shane Victorino and Mookie Betts, according to the Boston Globe.
Victorino, who is not in Friday's lineup against the Angels, is considered day-to-day with soreness in his left calf. He was a late scratch from Thursday's lineup and has not gotten much playing time since returning from the disabled list on May 11. Though, he has hit well in the seven games since his return, with eight hits in just 19 at-bats, including a double and a home run.
Betts, meanwhile, has been struggling mightely at the plate in his sophomore season. He's batting .205 (8 for 39) with just one extra-base hit over his last 10 games.

Holt will bat leadoff while Bradley will hit ninth.
Betts has led off 33 of the Red Sox’s 36 games coming into Saturday.
Shortstop Xander Bogaerts will move up and hit sixth on Saturday, the highest he’s hit in the order all season.
Red Sox CF Mookie Betts riding nine-game hitting streak
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(5/12/15) Red Sox center fielder Mookie Betts extended his hitting streak to nine games with a 2-for-5 effort in Monday's win over the A's. Betts also drove in two runs, including one in the top of the seventh that temporarily tied the game at three.
During his hit streak, Betts is hitting .316 with three home runs, four doubles, a triple and six RBI. Going back a little further, the hot-swinging Betts has hits in 12 of his last 13 games, and has been a real sparkplug atop the Red Sox lineup this season.
Red Sox's Mookie Betts hits fifth homer Wednesday
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(5/6/15) Red Sox center fielder Mookie Betts went 1 for 4 with a walk and a solo home run in his team's 5-3 loss to the Rays Wednesday.
Betts cracked his fifth home run of the season in the eighth inning to bring his team to within one run, but the Rays added another run in the ninth and the Red Sox couldn't rally in the final inning. Betts has now picked up three home runs in the last two games and is hitting .234/.310/.432 with 18 RBI and five stolen bases in 111 at-bats.
Red Sox center fielder Mookie Betts cracks two home runs
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(5/5/15) Red Sox center fielder Mookie Betts went 2 for 4 at the plate in Boston's 2-0 win over the Rays on Tuesday.
Betts started things off in the sixth inning when he crushed a Drew Smyly pitch out of the park for a solo home run. Then in the eighth, history repeatedly itself as Betts ripped another solo shot off Ernesto Frieri, his fourth of the season. It was Betts' first multi-home run game of his career and the youngest Red Sox player to do so since Jim Rice in 1975.
"That wasn't a bigger swing, that was just my swing," Betts said, per the Boston Herald. "I think I swing hard in case I hit it, pretty much."
Betts moved his average .234 with 17 RBI in 107 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.
