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.
Red Sox OF Mookie Betts totals 4 RBI in win over Nationals
|by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com|
|(4/13/15) Red Sox center fielder Mookie Betts accounted for four RBI in Monday afternoon's 9-4 win over the Nationals.
Betts went 2 for 4 at the plate, with one of his hits going for a three-run home run in the second inning. Betts also drew a walk and reached on an infield single in the third inning, which scored Mike Napoli.
His slash line is now .233/.294/.467.
Betts also stole two bases in the game and came down with a tough catch for an out, robbing Washington's Bryce Harper of a home run in the first inning.
Red Sox make outfield adjustments for Sunday's game
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(4/12/15) The Red Sox are back to the normal starting outfield for Sunday's game against the Yankees, reports WEEI.com.
Mookie Betts will take center and lead off, Hanley Ramirez will man left field and bat cleanup while Shane Victorino will take right field and bat seventh. It will be Victorino's third start this season in six games and is hitting .167 in 12 at-bats.
The Yankees are currently the favorites (-106) against the Red Sox.
|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.
