Mookie Betts went 3-for-5 with a go-ahead solo home run in Sunday's 2-1 win over the Mariners.

Betts played hero in this one with his seventh-inning solo home run off Edwin Diaz. The game had been deadlocked at 1-1 prior to his bomb. The 23-year-old has been nothing short of phenomenal this season – particularly given his age – and owns a shiny .295/.342/.527 triple-slash to pair with 15 homers, 50 RBI and 11 steals across 298 at-bats. He stole 21 bases last season, a mark that he should have a good chance of surpassing if he can stay healthy.

Mookie Betts followed up his three-homer game Tuesday by homering in his first two at-bats Wednesday against the Orioles.

Betts homered in the first and second innings for the second straight game. He got three more plate appearances in the game, walking twice and grounding out in an attempt to become the first player ever with consecutive three-homer games. Betts is up to 14 homers this season. He had 18 in 597 at-bats last year.

Mookie Betts had a night to remember Tuesday, slugging three home runs and driving in five runs in a victory over the Orioles.

Betts deposited Kevin Gausman's second pitch of the game over the center-field wall and he got Gausman again with a three-run shot just over the left-field wall in the second inning. After a lineout in the fourth, Betts victimized Dylan Bundy with an opposite-field shot in the seventh. Betts had a shot at a four-homer night but grounded out to second base in the ninth. The 23-year-old has actually been a tad disappointing this season from an average (.283) and on-base percentage (.325) perspective, but he's provided a ton of category juice with 12 homers, 40 RBI, 49 runs scored and eight stolen bases.

Mookie Betts will take a night off Thursday.

It's his first absence in 88 games dating back to last season. Chris Young will start in right field and Blake Swihart is in left field Thursday versus the Rockies. Jackie Bradley is hitting leadoff against Jon Gray.

Mookie Betts went 3-for-5 with two homers and five RBI in Saturday's win over the Indians.

He crushed a solo shot over the Green Monster in the fourth inning before going bridge again with a grand slam in the seventh. The Red Sox are hitting almost .300 as a team this season and Betts is sitting on an .822 OPS, with seven hits and three homers over his last three contests. Betts' average has jumped from .256 to .276 over that span. He's tied with teammate Jackie Bradley for third in the American League with 33 RBI.
May 21 - 8:05 PM

Mookie Betts hit a three-run home run and scored twice in Thursday's win over the Astros.

Betts connected for the three-run shot in the sixth inning, his second home run in three games. He's got seven RBI and six runs scored in his last four games, and his 29 runs scored are third-most in the American League. His .253/.293/.430 line still leaves something to be desired, but he has six homers and seven steals and should see his numbers improve as the season wears on.
May 12 - 10:50 PM

Mookie Betts went 2-for-5 with a double, a stolen base and three RBI in Saturday's 8-0 demolition of the Yankees.

Betts kicked off the scoring with a two-RBI double in the second inning off righty Michael Pineda. Given the pre-season hype, some may not be satisfied with his .266/.298/.459 slash line. Few people realize, though, that he's been the third-best fantasy outfielder in 2016. A combination of four homers, 19 runs, 17 RBI and six stolen bases will do that. Betts has been very, very good for fantasy owners this year and should be a full five-category contributor.
Apr 30 - 11:13 PM

Mookie Betts led the offensive onslaught in Friday's 6-2 victory over the Astros, going 4-for-5 with three runs scored and an RBI.

Betts tripled twice, doubled and singled, finishing a home run shy of the cycle. He has been swinging an extremely hot bat this week, and has now raised his season slash to .278/.307/.542 with four homers, 14 RBI and three stolen bases.
Apr 23 - 12:47 AM

Mookie Betts went 2-for-3 with a two-run homer, two walks and three runs scored Wednesday against the Rays.

That's more like it. He also swiped his third base of the season. Betts had been down to .207/.220/.345 before his big game tonight raised his OPS 131 points.
Apr 21 - 12:22 AM

Mookie Betts' rough start to the season continued Tuesday, as he went hitless in four at-bats in an extra-innings loss to the Rays.

He wasn't the only one, as the only hit the Red Sox could muster in 10 innings was a single by Jackie Bradley in the third. Betts has two homers, two steals and nine RBI, so the counting stats haven't been bad. However, he's hitting just .207/.220/.345 across his first 13 games.
Apr 19 - 11:36 PM

Mookie Betts went 2-for-4, both driving in and scoring a run, in Wednesday's 4-2 victory over the Orioles.

It's tempting to suggest that Betts has scuffled this spring, only hitting .270/.289/.486 in 38 plate appearances, but that only illustrates the lofty expectations that accompanied the Boston outfielder prior to the season. He already has gone deep twice and has two stolen bases -- one of which came on Wednesday against the Orioles. The strikeout rate is higher than normal, but, overall, everything seems to be in working order for the 23-year-old star.
Apr 14 - 12:14 AM

Mookie Betts busted out Monday against the Orioles with three hits, including a solo home run.

Betts drove in two runs on the day and also scored two runs. The young outfielder had just three hits over his first 23 at-bats coming into Monday’s action, but fantasy owners should expect more big days like this one in his future.
Apr 11 - 5:53 PM

Mookie Betts went 3-for-4 with a double and an RBI as the Red Sox topped the Blue Jays 4-2 in Cactus League action on Friday.

Betts also scored a run in the contest. The dynamic young outfielder has had a terrific spring, hitting .348 with four homers, six RBI and two stolen bases. He's primed to have a monster season hitting atop the Red Sox lineup in 2016.
Apr 2 - 12:25 AM

Mookie Betts went 2-for-3 and hit his third spring homer Friday against the Twins.

He also homered in a game against Boston College on Feb. 29, though that doesn't count in the spring stats. Even so, he's hitting .303 with a .970 OPS. He's a clear top-10 fantasy outfielder entering the season. We have him as a top-10 player overall.
