Phillies scour Red Sox chain for potential Cole Hamels swap


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/1/2015) 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
(4/28/2015) 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.
