Not starting Mookie Betts Saturday no reflection of recent slump
by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(3:33 pm ET) 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."

by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer

"He’s just not throwing it over the plate," Ryan said. "It’s a little bit of what was going on in spring training. We’ve got to clean that up. We’ve got to get him to throw it over and trust his stuff is all."

Meyer lost a battle in spring training for the Twins' final rotation spot.

"He can do better. We expect him to do better," Ryan said. "I wasn't worried about his pace. I was worried about him putting away hitters."

Phillies' Ben Revere hitting ball hard, still struggling
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(2:09 pm ET) Over his career, Phillies outfielder Ben Revere has hit nearly 70 points lower in April than from May onward. This season, Revere is off to an even slower start, with a .135 average. He's 1 for 13 on the current road trip and was not in Saturday's starting lineup. 

"I can't find nothing right now," Revere said of his struggles, per MLB.com. "But you have to keep your head up. It's a long season. Hopefully I've got a lot more at-bats and a lot more games to play. If I can do that, I'll be alright. I've started slow before. As soon as the ball starts falling, the sky's the limit."

Interestingly, Revere thinks he's swinging the bat better than usual, even though the hits aren't falling. "I think this is the first time in April that I've hit the ball as hard as I have," he said. "I don't know how many times I've lined out to guys, but that's the game of baseball."
