Mookie Betts went 2-for-5 with a solo home run, a double and two runs scored in Thursday's win over the Angels.

Not quite the fireworks show that Betts put on on Tuesday, when he swatted three home runs, but the outfielder remains one of the hottest players in the bigs. His dinger on Thursday came leading off the first inning against Nick Tropeano. The Angels are most certainly going to be happy for the Red Sox -- and Betts in particularly -- to leave town. Boston swept the three-game series, a three-game series in which Betts went 7-for-13 with four home runs and a double. For the campaign as a whole, the star outfielder owns a silly batting line of .391/.481/.797 with six homers, 14 RBI and 22 runs scored over the course of 64 at-bats. Simply fantastic.

Mookie Betts (foot) was in the lineup for Tuesday's road game against the Angels and he belted three solo home runs while posting a pair of walks.

Betts led off with a 411-foot homer off of Shohei Ohtani for his 12th career leadoff bomb, extending his franchise record. He also has eight multi-homer games in the leadoff spot, another Boston team record. In total his three solo shots traveled a combined 1,254 feet. Betts will look to keep it rolling against left-hander Tyler Skaggs in Wednesday's contest. He's off to a tremendous start here in 2018.
Apr 18 - 3:07 AM

Mookie Betts (foot) is in the Red Sox starting lineup on Tuesday night against the Angels.

He will start in right field and bat leadoff against Angels right-hander Shohei Ohtani. Betts suffered a bruised left foot Saturday in a collision with Orioles catcher Chance Sisco but only wound up missing one game because Monday's series finale got postponed due to nasty weather on Patriots' Day in Boston.

Mookie Betts (foot) is not in the Red Sox' lineup Sunday.

Betts suffered a bruised left foot as a result of a collision with Orioles catcher Chance Sisco on Saturday. He's day-to-day and could be ready to go Monday. Mitch Moreland is getting a start in his place at first base, as J.D. Martinez has moved to the outfield and Hanley Ramirez is in the designated hitter spot.
Apr 15 - 10:13 AM

Mookie Betts has been diagnosed with a bruised left foot and is considered day-to-day.

Betts was removed from Saturday's game against the Orioles after colliding with O's catcher Chance Sisco, but X-rays came back negative. The dynamic outfielder should be back in the lineup for Sunday's series finale.
Apr 14 - 2:52 PM

Mookie Betts was removed from Saturday's game against the Orioles with a possible leg injury.

No word from the team yet on exactly what the injury is, but Betts came up limping after sliding into catcher Chance Sisco while scoring the game's first run in the opening inning. He was able to remain in the game for another couple of innings, and even took his next at-bat, but was lifted for a defensive replacement after the third inning. Look for the Red Sox to provide an update on his status shortly.
Apr 14 - 2:19 PM

Mookie Betts had a night for the ages Tuesday, going 4-for-4 with four RBI and five runs scored in the Red Sox' blowout victory over the Yankees.

He finished a triple shy of the cycle in a night that was highlighted by a pair of doubles and a grand slam off of reliever Chasen Shreve. Betts also added a walk for good measure, reaching base in all five of his trips to the plate. With the four-hit night, Betts' average went from .364 to .432. He's sporting a 1.263 OPS.
Apr 10 - 10:35 PM

Mookie Betts is not in Tuesday's lineup against the Marlins.

J.D. Martinez sat out Monday's game with the DH unavailable under National League rules, but he'll get the start in right field Tuesday. Things will be back to normal for the Red Sox beginning Thursday against the Rays.
Apr 3 - 2:25 PM

Mookie Betts went 2-for-5 and launched his first homer of the year Monday against the Marlins.

Betts has a .435 OBP through five games as the Red Sox's leadoff man. He's scored just two runs thus far, but if he can approach a .400 OBP this year, he'll be a threat to lead the AL in runs.
Apr 2 - 10:44 PM

Mookie Betts homered twice Sunday as the Red Sox beat the Twins 6-1 in Grapefruit League play.

Betts hit a solo shot off Twins starter Kyle Gibson in the top of the first inning and belted a two-run bomb off Twins closer Fernando Rodney in the top of the fourth. The dynamic 25-year-old outfielder is now batting .340 with a 1.106 OPS this spring. We think he might be ready for the regular season to get underway.
Mar 25 - 3:56 PM

Mookie Betts hit his first home run of the spring in Sunday's Grapefruit League loss to the Orioles.

Betts also drew two walks in the game, finishing with two runs scored. The 25-year-old outfielder had a somewhat down 2017 season in terms of batting average and OPS, but he still finished with tremendous fantasy stats: 24 homers, 102 RBI, 26 stolen bases, and 101 runs scored. He remains a sure-fire first-round pick.
Mar 11 - 4:28 PM

Mookie Betts said he will not discuss a contract extension with the Red Sox until after the 2018 season.

Betts is under contract through 2020, so there's no real rush from either side. He also just scored a $10.5 million salary for 2018 in his first foray through the arbitration process -- very close to a new record for a first-year arbitration player. The 25-year-old outfielder is going to be really expensive next winter -- whether via arbitration or an extension -- if he puts up the kind of numbers we've seen for the last three seasons. Betts finished with 24 home runs, 102 RBI, 26 stolen bases, and 101 runs scored over 153 games in 2017.
Feb 15 - 8:56 AM

Mookie Betts won his arbitration case against the Red Sox and will earn a $10.5 million salary in 2018.

Boston offered Betts a $7.5 million salary when arbitration figures were filed earlier this month. At a hearing Tuesday the panel sided with the 25-year-old outfielder's request. $10.5 million is close to a first-year arbitration record, falling just shy of the $10.85 million salary Kris Bryant commanded from the Cubs a couple weeks ago. Betts tallied 24 home runs, 102 RBI, 26 stolen bases, and 101 runs scored in 153 games last season. He's a top-five fantasy stud.
Jan 31 - 1:18 PM

According to Robert Murray of FanRag Sports, the arbitration hearing for Mookie Betts and the Red Sox is taking place on Tuesday.

Betts, who is arbitration-eligible for the first time this winter, requested $10.5 million and was offered $7.5 million by the Red Sox when figures were exchanged earlier this month. It's not an ideal situation to sit down with one of your best players and point out some faults, but the arbitration panel will decide on one salary or the other for 2018.
