Mookie Betts is now represented by Relativity Sports.
Betts was previously represented by agent Dan Lozano. The 22-year-old isn't on pace to be arbitration-eligible until after the 2017 season, so there's no sense of urgency with his contract situation. Dec 10 - 1:24 PM

ESPN's Jerry Crasnick writes that the Phillies "love" Mookie Betts of the Red Sox.

Aw, that's sweet. The Phillies are shopping Cole Hamels as part of their rebuilding effort and the Red Sox have plenty of moving parts to trade, so the two sides match up quite well. Betts would be a logical fit in a potential return package.

Mookie Betts went 2-for-4 with a double, two RBI and a steal Sunday against the Yankees.

The Red Sox have made it clear in recent days that they see Betts as an outfielder next year, leaving him in a very crowded mix with Yoenis Cespedes, Rusney Castillo, Allen Craig, Jackie Bradley Jr. and Daniel Nava. Betts has spent the last month looking like a legitimate major leaguer, hitting .317 with two homers, seven doubles and 11 walks in 104 at-bats. Still, he's going to be a risky pick in fantasy leagues next spring, given all of Boston's alternatives.

Mookie Betts finished 3-for-5 with an RBI double as the Red Sox ran roughshod over the Rays on Thursday.

With the three-hit performance, Betts drives his September average up to .326 (30-for-92). In his first 200 major league plate appearances, Betts is hitting .294/.372/.446 with five home runs, 16 RBI, six stolen bases, and 32 runs scored.

Mookie Betts reached base three times on Wednesday, going 1-for-3 with a single, two walks, and an RBI as the Red Sox skated to an 11-3 victory.

Betts' scorching hot September continues. He's now batting .310 (27-for-87) in the month. Despite getting off to a slow start, Betts has shown he can handle the majors. In 195 plate appearances, he's batting .285/.366/.436 with five home runs, 15 RBI, six stolen bases, and 31 runs scored.
Sep 24 - 11:04 PM

Mookie Betts hit a leadoff home run, finishing 2-for-5 as the Red Sox sneaked past the Orioles 3-2 on Sunday.

Leading off the game, Betts homered to left on the fourth pitch he saw. The homer was his fifth of the year, giving him 14 RBI. Betts is really showing something after his early struggles, as his line sits at .285/.362/.436 after Sunday's performance. It should be fun to watch what the 21-year-old will do in his sophomore campaign.
Sep 21 - 4:59 PM

Mookie Betts went 2-for-4 with two runs scored in Sunday's win over the Royals.

Ho hum, another two-hit day for the 21-year-old. The multi-hit game was the seventh this month for Betts, who is hitting .333 with 14 runs scored in September. After a terrible start to his major league career, Betts is now hitting .289/.365/.444 overall.
Sep 14 - 6:50 PM

Mookie Betts is expected to play second base "fairly regularly" the rest of the way.

The Red Sox still see Betts as an outfielder for the long-term, but he'll play second base now that Dustin Pedroia (wrist) and Brock Holt (dizziness) are both sidelined. We could see him there as soon as Friday. The move clears up a potential logjam with Rusney Castillo expected to make his major league debut soon.
Sep 11 - 5:51 PM

Mookie Betts stayed hot, going 3-for-5 with a two-run home run in Tuesday's win against the Yankees.

Betts has hit safely in 11 of 15 games since he was brought back to the big leagues on August 18. The rookie struggled in his first taste of the big leagues but has caught fire, now slashing .284/.358/.474 with four home runs, 10 RBI, and four stolen bases in 107 plate appearances.
Sep 2 - 10:53 PM

Mookie Betts went 2-for-4 with a double and an RBI single in Sunday's win over the Rays.

Betts has been much better this go-round in the majors, batting .272 with two home runs, six RBI and six runs scored since being recalled on August 18. The 21-year-old is hitting .259/.344/.424 overall in 2014.
Aug 31 - 4:35 PM

Mookie Betts blasted the first grand slam of his major league career, leading the Red Sox to an 8-4 victory over the Rays in Tampa Bay on Friday.

His critical blast came off opposing starter Chris Archer with two outs in the second inning, increasing the Red Sox lead to 8-0 at the time and putting the game virtually out of reach. Betts also singled in the contest, finishing the night 2-for-5. He's now hitting .253/.337/.418 with three homers and seven RBI in his limited time with the Red Sox.
Aug 29 - 11:14 PM

Mookie Betts collected his second homer and his fourth steal Monday against the Blue Jays.

Betts has been an everyday guy since replacing Jackie Bradley Jr. on Boston's roster, and he's started to hit the last three games, going 4-for-9 with four walks and three steals. What happens when/if Rusney Castillo comes up next month remains to be seen, but Betts is worth using in mixed leagues right now.
Aug 25 - 10:55 PM

Red Sox recalled INF/OF Mookie Betts from Triple-A Pawtucket.

Betts hasn't done a whole lot in his two stints with the Red Sox this season, but the 21-year-old boasts eye-popping minor league numbers and should get everyday playing time down the stretch, primarily in center field. With tremendous upside and a clear path to regular at-bats in Boston, he's worth another look in mixed fantasy leagues. Jackie Bradley Jr. was optioned to Triple-A Pawtucket in a corresponding move.
Aug 18 - 2:19 PM

Red Sox prospect Mookie Betts went 3-for-5 with two doubles, one walk, and one stolen base for Triple-A Pawtucket on Monday.

Betts has gone 9-for-22 with four walks in five games since his most recent demotion to Pawtucket, and has picked up at least one hit in every game. At this point, Betts is too good for Triple-A but the Red Sox don't have an everyday role for him. His long-term role is muddled, as the Red Sox have their 2015 outfield and second base set. Betts could be a valuable trade chip, or could move into a number of different roles depending on what happens in August and the off-season.
Aug 12 - 10:16 AM

Red Sox optioned INF/OF Mookie Betts to Triple-A Pawtucket.

The move clears a spot for Kelly Johnson's activation from the disabled list. Betts only had two starts in five games during his most recent stint with the big club and is better off playing every day in the minors rather than sitting on the bench. We'll likely see him again very soon.
