Red Sox manager John Farrell said Saturday that Mookie Betts (wrist) is expected to play in Game 3 of the ALDS on Sunday.

Betts was removed from Friday's game against the Astros in the eighth inning after aggravating his left wrist injury. Given that the Red Sox will be playing for their postseason lives on Sunday, it's difficult to imagine Betts not playing through the pain.

Mookie Betts was lifted from Friday's game against the Astros after appearing to aggravate his left wrist injury.

Betts was in pain after a couple different swings in the top of the eighth inning and was lifted when the Red Sox took the field for defense in the bottom of the frame. His wrist bothered him down the stretch and he received a pain-killing injection last week. Betts might have remained in had the game been close, and he should attempt to gut it out in Game 3.

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

The Red Sox are resting most of their regulars following their clinching of the American League East on Saturday. Chris Young is handling right field.
Oct 1 - 11:45 AM

Mookie Betts clobbered his 24th home run of the season as the Red Sox beat the Astros 6-3 on Saturday to clinch the American League East.

His solo shot off of Luke Gregerson in the seventh inning put the icing on the cake, extending the Red Sox' lead to 6-2. Betts also singled in the contest, finishing the afternoon 2-for-3 plus a walk with three runs scored. While he has had a bit of a disappointing season relative to his unbelievable 2016 campaign, he has still been an excellent five-category contributor, hitting .264/.344/.459 with 24 homers, 101 runs scored, 102 RBI and 26 stolen bases.

Mookie Betts (wrist) is back in the Red Sox starting lineup Thursday night against the Astros.

Sep 28 - 3:03 PM

Mookie Betts (wrist) was available for pinch-hitting duties on Wednesday against the Blue Jays, and believes he'll be able to play against the Astros on Thursday.

Betts hasn't played since being removed on Monday with inflammation in his right wrist. The fact he was available off the bench is obviously a positive sign, and the worst case scenario seems to be that he is ready to go for the ALDS.

Mookie Betts (wrist) remains out of the Red Sox starting lineup Wednesday versus the Blue Jays.

Betts is still battling a bone bruise in his right thumb and inflammation in his left wrist. He should be fine for the beginning of the ALDS, but it's uncertain how much playing time he might see over Boston's final stretch of regular-season games. Rajai Davis is starting in right field and hitting eighth Wednesday night against Toronto right-hander Marco Estrada.
Sep 27 - 3:40 PM

A CT scan taken Tuesday on Mookie Betts' left wrist showed no structural damage.

Betts has been diagnosed with inflammation and a bone bruise and he will be held out of the Red Sox starting lineup on Tuesday night against the Blue Jays, but Boston dodged a bullet here. The 24-year-old outfielder should be fully ready for the postseason, even if he doesn't play much over these final six days of the regular season.
Sep 26 - 4:40 PM

Mookie Betts (wrist) is not in Tuesday's lineup versus the Blue Jays.

Sep 26 - 3:14 PM

Mookie Betts will have his left wrist examined on Tuesday.

Red Sox manager John Farrell said that Betts being pulled with left wrist soreness was precautionary, and the outfielder thinks he'll be fine. However, he'll have the wrist looked at just to be safe. It certainly wouldn't be a surprise to see him miss a game or two even if he checks out OK.
Sep 25 - 10:49 PM

Red Sox manager John Farrell said after Monday's game that Mookie Betts (wrist) being pulled was a precautionary move.

Betts was lifted with left wrist soreness, but it sounds like no testing will be done and he should be fine. The outfielder's fantasy owners can breathe a sigh of relief.

Mookie Betts was pulled from Monday's game against the Blue Jays with left wrist discomfort.

It's unclear when Betts was injured, but he was spotted in the dugout talking to the trainer about his wrist and was then lifted for a pinch-hitter in the eighth inning. The Red Sox will have an update on Betts after the game.
Sep 25 - 9:58 PM

Mookie Betts went 1-for-4 with three runs knocked in during a 5-4 victory over the Reds on Sunday.

After missing Saturday's game, Betts was back in the Boston lineup on Sunday, and he had one of the biggest hits of the game. Down 4-2, he knocked in two on a two-run double to tie the game at 4-4, and he scored the game-winning run on a single by Rafael Devers. It gives Betts 99 RBI on the year, and while he's hitting just .263, he's shown that he's a quality run-producer in the potent Red Sox lineup.
Sep 24 - 4:37 PM

Mookie Betts was scratched from the Red Sox starting lineup on Saturday due to a bruised left foot.

Betts was going to try to give it a go, but his foot is still sore and the club thought it best to be on the safe side and give him an extra day. He is available off the bench to pinch hit.
