Mookie Betts (back) is dealing with persistent soreness, but isn't experiencing any concussion symptoms and is not a candidate for the disabled list at this point.

He's expected to need a couple of days off after crashing into the center field wall and getting pulled from Friday's game against the Blue Jays. Expect him to return to the Red Sox lineup early next week. Alejandro De Aza will continue to see increased playing time in his absence.

Mookie Betts went 0-for-3 as the Red Sox's No. 7 hitter on Wednesday.

Betts was dropped in Boston's lineup in part because of a recent slump but also largely because the entire lineup has been struggling. He still seems like a really good bet here, but his run numbers will suffer until he moves back up (he was doing poorly in that category anyway because of Boston's troubles hitting with RISP).
Jun 10 - 10:22 PM

It's simply a day off. Rusney Castillo is in center field for Betts, with Brock Holt covering right.
