With a .320/.360/.557 batting line to go along with 28 homers, 93 RBI, 21 steals, and 99 runs scored, Betts continues to look like a strong MVP candidate.

Mookie Betts went supernova in Sunday's 16-2 win over the Diamondbacks, homering three times and driving in eight runs.

Betts was far from the only offense performer to go off in the blowout win (Dustin Pedroia picked up five hits on the afternoon), but his performance stood above all others. He opened the show with a two-run homer in the first inning, then went on to style a three-run dinger in the third before finishing off the virtuoso performance with another three-run homer in the fifth. With that gigantic performance under his belt, the dynamic 23-year-old outfielder is slashing .313/.351/.561 with 26 homers and 84 RBI over 492 at-bats. He deserves to be in the conversation for AL MVP.

Mookie Betts (calf) is back in the Red Sox' lineup Friday.

Aug 12 - 4:13 PM

Mookie Betts (calf) is out Thursday.

Betts made an early exit from Wednesday night's game after experiencing tightness in his right calf. The star outfielder said he felt fine in the clubhouse afterward and the Red Sox seem confident in calling him day-to-day. Brock Holt will start in right field on Thursday against the Yankees.
Aug 11 - 3:22 PM

Mookie Betts left Wednesday's game against the Yankees with right calf tightness.

Betts was fine through the early portion of the game, but manager John Farrell replaced him in right field with Brock Holt to start the top of the eighth inning. This could well just be a precautionary move, but regardless, Betts figures to be reevaluated on Thursday. He was batting third for the Red Sox on Wednesday, with Dustin Pedroia at leadoff and Xander Bogaerts hitting second.
Aug 10 - 10:47 PM

Red Sox manager John Farrell said the team is considering moving Mookie Betts out of the leadoff spot.

Betts has been Boston's leadoff hitter for all but three games this season but his power might be better utilized in the No. 3 spot. If Betts does move to third, the Red Sox would likely have Dustin Pedroia hit leadoff while shifting Xander Bogaerts to the No. 2 spot in the lineup. Betts has emerged as a legitimate MVP candidate, hitting .309 with 23 HR, 73 RBI and 17 steals over 106 games this season.
Aug 6 - 4:39 PM

Mookie Betts finished 3-for-5 with a homer and two RBI in Friday's rout of the Dodgers.

With 23 so far, Betts has a great chance of joining the club of leadoff hitters with 30 homers. It's happened 14 times ever, including four times by Alfonso Soriano. Betts would be the first to hit 30 from the leadoff spot since Mike Trout in 2012.
Aug 6 - 1:09 AM

Mookie Betts launched a go-ahead solo home run in the ninth inning of Monday's 2-1 win over the Mariners.

In what was a tight pitcher's duel throughout, the power of the Red Sox ultimately came through big. After Aaron Hill clubbed a game-tying solo homer in the eighth, Betts stepped up for a solo dinger of his own to lead off the ninth. That one came off Steve Cishek, who was last seen melting down against the Cubs on Sunday night. Betts has now driven in a run in seven consecutive games and homered in two of the last three. He is sporting an impressive .306/.348/.543 triple-slash with 22 homers, 70 RBI and 17 steals for the season as a whole.
Aug 2 - 1:10 AM

Mookie Betts hit a solo homer for his only hit of the night on Saturday.

The longball was Betts' 21st of the season. He has been a fantasy monster this year, batting .303 with 81 runs, 68 RBI and 17 stolen bases at the age of 23. He has already passed last year's 18 home runs and still has two months to play.
