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.
Mar 18 - 4:41 PM

The Red Sox have not discussed a long-term contract with Mookie Betts.

Betts doesn't become a free agent until 2021 so it's probably a little early to be having that conversation anyway. "We're going year-by-year," said Betts. "I block all that out. I know that I have to go play each and every day." Betts got on a roll late last season, hitting .389 in September with five homers and 13 RBI. He's a legitimate 20/20 threat.

Mookie Betts crushed a three-run homer as the Red Sox shut out Boston College 6-0 in a seven-inning game Monday.

Betts was the lone member of the Sox to get three at-bats in the game, and it's a good thing he did, since he started 0-for-2 before the homer. The Red Sox also got two hits from Hanley Ramirez and prospect Sam Travis (both doubles).
Feb 29 - 3:44 PM

Alex Speier of the Boston Globe doesn't believe the Red Sox are in a rush to sign Mookie Betts or Xander Bogaerts to extensions.

The Red Sox have plenty of time to work that out as neither player is even arbitration-eligible yet. While signing Betts and Bogaerts to extensions now would save money, that isn't a huge concern for a big-market club like the Red Sox. Even if Boston did offer extensions, Betts and Bogaerts would probably wait until the new CBA to sign their deals anyway.

Feb 6 - 5:20 PM

Mookie Betts homered in the seventh and 11th innings Wednesday to lead the Red Sox past the Yankees 9-5.

Betts' homer in the seventh tied the game off Dellin Betances. His two-run homer in the 11th was insurance; the Red Sox had already scored two runs in the frame by that point. Betts is up to 18 homers on the year, to go along with his 42 doubles and eight triples. He's one of the American League's best outfielders right now.

Mookie Betts went 2-for-4 with a walk, a double, and a solo home run as the Red Sox took down the Yankees 10-4 on Tuesday.

Betts led off the game with a double and came around to score in what became a six-run top of the first inning. He made it a 7-4 game in the fifth, drilling a solo home run off of Michael Pineda. Betts is putting the finishing touches on an outstanding season, batting .293/.342/.477 with 16 home runs, 74 RBI, 90 runs scored, and 20 stolen bases.
Tue, Sep 29, 2015 10:17:00 PM

Mookie Betts went 3-for-5 and swiped his 20th base Wednesday against the Rays.

Betts has multiple hits in seven of his last 10 games, pushing his average up to .293. He's totaled 18 runs scored in 19 games this month.
Wed, Sep 23, 2015 11:27:00 PM

Mookie Betts went 2-for-4 with a double and a strikeout in Friday's loss to the Blue Jays.

In a dominant start by Marcus Stroman, Betts was the only Red Sox hitter with more than one hit and the only one to work an extra-base knock. The 22-year-old outfielder has done a nice job handling the bat this season, slashing .290/.336/.473 with 15 homers and 71 RBI.
