Mookie Betts launched his 18th homer Wednesday in the Red Sox’s 5-1 victory over the Orioles.
Betts put the Red Sox ahead 1-0 with a solo blast off Yefry Ramirez in the third inning. The round-tripper was his first since May 25 after missing two weeks with a strained abdominal muscle. Mookie has always owned the Orioles, particularly at Camden Yards, where he’s crushed 12 long balls in 132 lifetime at-bats. The 25-year-old leads the big leagues in batting average (.352), OPS (1.171) and slugging percentage (.741) while also ranking second in runs scored (54) and third in WAR (4.2). He’s an enormous talent and a big reason why the Red Sox hold the majors’ best record at 47-22. Jun 13 - 6:54 PM

Jun 13 - 11:51 AM

Mookie Betts said that he feels "great" and will be available off the bench Tuesday.

In other words, Betts is just getting a routine day of rest after making his return from the disabled list on Monday. It shouldn't be long before he's back in action on a regular basis again.

RotoGrinders.com Daily Slant: With Betts out, Eduardo Nunez moves to the leadoff spot and becomes a great play in DFS today. He's very cheap on all sites and should have plenty of chances to contribute to the Red Sox's 5.1 run total.

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

Betts went 1-for-5 with a single and a strikeout in his return from an abdominal strain on Monday. He said after the game that he felt good, so the Red Sox are likely just playing it safe. Eduardo Nunez will hit leadoff Tuesday for Boston.
Jun 12 - 3:13 PM

Red Sox activated OF Mookie Betts from the 10-day disabled list.

Huge and unexpected news for fantasy owners, as Betts will skip a minor league rehab assignment altogether. He'll hit leadoff in his return Monday against the Orioles. Betts took some live batting practice over the weekend and apparently bounced back well enough to convince the Red Sox that he's ready to return. Betts has been out since May 27 with an abdominal strain.
Jun 11 - 4:02 PM

Moonie Betts (abdominal strain) could begin a minor league rehab assignment on Monday.

Betts reportedly let loose during a live batting practice session on Saturday without any issues. He'll do so again on Sunday, and barring any setbacks he'll be cleared for his rehab assignment.
Jun 9 - 1:36 PM

Mookie Betts (abdominal strain) will take another round of on-field batting Friday.

Betts is eligible to be activated from the 10-day disabled list on Friday, but he still has a couple of hurdles to clear in his recovery from an abdominal strain. And it sounds like he might play in some minor league rehab games before returning. The 25-year-old outfielder was batting .359/.437/.750 with 17 home runs, 37 RBI, 13 stolen bases, and 52 runs scored through 48 games this season with Boston.
Jun 7 - 10:36 PM

Mookie Betts (abdominal strain) will take batting practice on the field on Thursday.

Betts also reportedly told manager Alex Cora that a rehab assignment could help him regain some timing at the plate. He's eligible to come off the disabled list on Friday, and while that was the original goal for Betts, it doesn't appear that it's going to happen. Cora did tell reporters that Betts is feeling better, however, so we should see the star outfielder back at the top of the lineup rather soon.
Jun 6 - 4:15 PM

Mookie Betts (abdominal strain) said Friday that he's hopeful to be activated from the disabled list when first eliglble on June 8.

The dynamic outfielder said that his injury continues to improve and that he only feels it when he swings the bat. He, and the Red Sox' organization, are worried that he could wind up missing substantial time if he tries to play through the injury and aggravates it further, so the best thing for him to do now is to let it fully heal.
Jun 1 - 11:49 PM

Red Sox placed OF Mookie Betts on the 10-day disabled list, retroactive to May 29, with a left abdominal strain.

This move seemed almost inevitable after Betts continued to miss games due to his abdominal strain. The Red Sox are doing the right thing by sitting him down and allowing the injury to fully heal, rather than rushing him back and avoiding further aggravation. Betts has been absurd this season, slashing .359/.437/.750 with 17 homers, 37 RBI and 13 stolen bases. Barring any setbacks, he should be back as soon as he's eligible.
Jun 1 - 8:11 PM

Mookie Betts (side) remained out of the Red Sox' lineup Friday.

Betts hasn't played since last Saturday due to a side injury that the Red Sox initially referred to as minor. He took swings Friday and felt "alright," but added that they're "taking it slow." The hope is that Betts will be able to play sometime this weekend, but it's no guarantee. J.D. Martinez is in right field and Eduardo Nunez is in the designated hitter spot.
Jun 1 - 4:11 PM

Mookie Betts (side) remains out of the Red Sox's lineup Thursday against the Astros.

It will be his fifth straight absence. Brock Holt will fill in at right field and bat seventh against 'Stros right-hander Lance McCullers. Mookie remains day-to-day.
May 31 - 4:12 PM

Mookie Betts (side) is aiming to return to the Red Sox lineup Thursday.

Betts is sitting for a third straight game Tuesday due to soreness in his left side and he will also get the day off Wednesday, but Red Sox manager Alex Cora noted that this is something the 25-year-old could play through in different circumstances. Brock Holt is starting in right field and Andrew Benintendi is batting leadoff Tuesday night for the first-place Red Sox.
May 29 - 4:13 PM

Mookie Betts (side) remains out of Boston's lineup Tuesday against the Blue Jays.

Betts will sit for a third straight game as he nurses some tightness in his left side. The Red Sox have downplayed the severity, so he can continue to be considered day-to-day. Andrew Benintendi will hit leadoff while Brock Holt will make the start in right field.
May 29 - 3:05 PM

Mookie Betts (side) is not in Monday's lineup against the Blue Jays.

Betts was a late scratch from Sunday's lineup with left side tightness. Red Sox manager Alex Cora indicated that Betts would likely sit out Monday's game as well, but it's considered a day-to-day situation. Brock Holt, Jackie Bradley, Jr. and Andrew Benintendi will start from right to left in Boston's outfield.
