Mookie Betts underwent a successful right knee arthroscopy, chondroplasty and a loose body removal on Thursday.
Betts battled soreness in the knee throughout the second half, making his .338/.388/.547 batting line with 13 home runs and 54 RBI after the break all the more impressive. He's expected to be ready to go for the start of spring training, although it wouldn't be a surprise to see the Red Sox ease him into things. Nov 11 - 10:29 AM

Mookie Betts was announced as a winner of the Silver Slugger Award among American League outfielders on Thursday.

It’s no surprise. Betts, a first-time winner, amassed 31 homers and 113 RBI this past season while putting up a .318/.363/.534 batting line. He also stole 26 bases and scored 122 runs. He could add some more hardware next week, as he’s one of the finalists for the American League MVP award. The other winners: Mike Trout (OF), Mark Trumbo (OF), Miguel Cabrera (1B), Jose Altuve (2B), Xander Bogaerts (SS), Josh Donaldson (3B), Salvador Perez (C), David Ortiz (DH). Silver Slugger Awards are voted on by MLB coaches and managers.

The BBWAA announced on Monday that Mookie Betts, Mike Trout and Jose Altuve are finalists for the American League MVP award.

Trout was the best player not only in the American League but in all of baseball this season. However, him being on a bad team is going to affect his chances for some voters, as silly as that is. Betts is probably the favorite here and is certainly deserving of plenty of accolades after batting .318/.363/.534 with 31 homers, 113 RBI and 26 stolen bases.

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.
