Mookie Betts: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

Red Sox manager John Farrell echoed comments made in December when he told WEEI.com that Betts is a viable leadoff option. Farrell also mentioned Brock Holt as a leadoff candidate.

Red Sox manager John Farrell said that Betts is the leading in-house candidate to serve as the team's leadoff hitter this season, the Springfield Republican reports. "We’ve got all our in-house candidates and Mookie being the strongest at this point," Farrell said. "But that’s not to anoint him the Opening Day leadoff guy, it’s to say we’ve got a good young player that profiles the position."

Betts made his first start at second base in the major leagues Saturday and is expected to remain there for the balance of the season, ESPN Boston reports. "As much as I said before about not moving him out of center field, here we are putting him at second base," manager John Farrell said. "I want to minimize the back-and-forth to him. In fairness to him, that would be the approach. It kind of points at Mookie remaining at second base."

2015

Subscribe now to see our 2015 outlook.

2014

Betts, a fifth-round draft pick in 2011, was the organization's breakout prospect in 2013. He began the year at Low-A Greenville, initially struggled but maintained a good plate approach and kept his on-base percentage up. He eventually found his groove and had a 19-game hitting streak as well as a 33-game on-base streak. Betts hit 15 homers, had 81 walks and stole 38 bases in stops at Greenville and High-A Salem. With a good swing and the ability to work counts it's easy to see why the Red Sox like him. With Dustin Pedroia presumably the second baseman in Boston for years to come, Betts may eventually switch positions -- he played shortstop in high school. But that decision won't be made until later. The Red Sox like to challenge their prospects, so we might see Betts begin the season against older competition at Double-A Portland.

2013

Betts, a fifth-round draft pick out of high school in 2011, went professional after committing to play for the University of Tennessee. He's an athletic infielder with an ability to impact games with his legs. He stole 20 bags in 71 games for Short-Season Lowell in 2012. Betts has a nice swing that should produce line drives as he learns to manage the strike zone and improve his pitch recognition. He projects very little power potential, but could develop as a gap-to-gap hitter. Presently, Betts gets his bat on the ball, but it's not always solid contact. He'll be pressed to improve his good-contact rate in his first year of full-season ball at Low-A Greenville.
