Mookie Betts is expected to play second base "fairly regularly" the rest of the way.

The Red Sox still see Betts as an outfielder for the long-term, but he'll play second base now that Dustin Pedroia (wrist) and Brock Holt (dizziness) are both sidelined. We could see him there as soon as Friday. The move clears up a potential logjam with Rusney Castillo expected to make his major league debut soon.
Sep 11 - 5:51 PM

Mookie Betts stayed hot, going 3-for-5 with a two-run home run in Tuesday's win against the Yankees.

Betts has hit safely in 11 of 15 games since he was brought back to the big leagues on August 18. The rookie struggled in his first taste of the big leagues but has caught fire, now slashing .284/.358/.474 with four home runs, 10 RBI, and four stolen bases in 107 plate appearances.

Mookie Betts went 2-for-4 with a double and an RBI single in Sunday's win over the Rays.

Betts has been much better this go-round in the majors, batting .272 with two home runs, six RBI and six runs scored since being recalled on August 18. The 21-year-old is hitting .259/.344/.424 overall in 2014.
Aug 31 - 4:35 PM

Mookie Betts blasted the first grand slam of his major league career, leading the Red Sox to an 8-4 victory over the Rays in Tampa Bay on Friday.

His critical blast came off opposing starter Chris Archer with two outs in the second inning, increasing the Red Sox lead to 8-0 at the time and putting the game virtually out of reach. Betts also singled in the contest, finishing the night 2-for-5. He's now hitting .253/.337/.418 with three homers and seven RBI in his limited time with the Red Sox.
Aug 29 - 11:14 PM

Mookie Betts collected his second homer and his fourth steal Monday against the Blue Jays.

Betts has been an everyday guy since replacing Jackie Bradley Jr. on Boston's roster, and he's started to hit the last three games, going 4-for-9 with four walks and three steals. What happens when/if Rusney Castillo comes up next month remains to be seen, but Betts is worth using in mixed leagues right now.

Red Sox recalled INF/OF Mookie Betts from Triple-A Pawtucket.

Betts hasn't done a whole lot in his two stints with the Red Sox this season, but the 21-year-old boasts eye-popping minor league numbers and should get everyday playing time down the stretch, primarily in center field. With tremendous upside and a clear path to regular at-bats in Boston, he's worth another look in mixed fantasy leagues. Jackie Bradley Jr. was optioned to Triple-A Pawtucket in a corresponding move.
Aug 18 - 2:19 PM

Red Sox prospect Mookie Betts went 3-for-5 with two doubles, one walk, and one stolen base for Triple-A Pawtucket on Monday.

Betts has gone 9-for-22 with four walks in five games since his most recent demotion to Pawtucket, and has picked up at least one hit in every game. At this point, Betts is too good for Triple-A but the Red Sox don't have an everyday role for him. His long-term role is muddled, as the Red Sox have their 2015 outfield and second base set. Betts could be a valuable trade chip, or could move into a number of different roles depending on what happens in August and the off-season.
Aug 12 - 10:16 AM

Red Sox optioned INF/OF Mookie Betts to Triple-A Pawtucket.

The move clears a spot for Kelly Johnson's activation from the disabled list. Betts only had two starts in five games during his most recent stint with the big club and is better off playing every day in the minors rather than sitting on the bench. We'll likely see him again very soon.

Red Sox manager John Farrell said Wednesday that the club would like to find more playing time for Mookie Betts.

Betts has had a couple stints with the Sox this season but hasn't played much to this point. He's starting in center field Wednesday, though, and it sounds like the plan is to put him in the lineup more regularly. "Hopefully we're getting enough reps for him," Farrell said. Betts should have mixed league fantasy value if he can find regular playing time.

Red Sox recalled INF/OF Mookie Betts from Triple-A Pawtucket.

Betts wound up only spending a couple weeks back at Triple-A. It's not clear how much playing time he'll receive this time around, but he's starting in center field Friday. Fantasy owners should keep tabs on him.
Aug 1 - 3:39 PM

Red Sox prospect Mookie Betts went 4-for-5 with a double and a walk for Triple-A Pawtucket on Friday.

Betts has hit .370/.414/.519 over six games since his demotion to Triple-A, and has a .333/.422/.462 over 29 games in Triple-A. Betts has played center- and right-field since his demotion, and it looks like he will be an outfielder for the duration of the season. His long-term role is muddled due to the lack of a clear opening in Boston and their already-loaded infield.
Jul 26 - 10:25 AM

Red Sox optioned OF Mookie Betts to Triple-A Pawtucket.

Betts hit just .235/.278/.382 with one home run and one stolen base in 10 games with the Red Sox. The 21-year-old is very talented with big fantasy upside, but he needs a little more marinating in the minor leagues. Betts will play second base and outfield at Pawtucket.
Jul 19 - 4:40 PM

With Shane Victorino slated to return from the disabled list on Saturday, the Red Sox are expected to option Mookie Betts back to Triple-A Pawtucket.

The Red Sox would like Betts to be in the lineup on a daily basis and to become more comfortable in the outfield, and he just won't be afforded that opportunity at the major league level. In his first 10 games, the 21-year-old is 8-for-34 (.235) with a homer, two RBI and a 5/1 K/BB ratio.

Mookie Betts doubled twice and scored twice as the Red Sox came from behind to beat the White Sox 5-4.

Betts was hit by a pitch and scored the tying run on Daniel Nava's double in the ninth. The Red Sox then won the game on Brock Holt's single to right. Betts also had an outfield assist in the game. Hopefully, the Red Sox are going to give him a chance to play regularly after yanking him in and out of the lineup in his first 10 days in the majors.
