2014 Fantasy Baseball: The Farm Report, July 22

The MiLB report is back. Mookie Betts, after a short stint in Boston, is back in Triple-A. His long term prospects haven’t changed, though; his talent will likely shine through next season, when he should be in line for regular at-bats. Another stalwart, who bursted onto the scene, has struggled mightily lately – if you’re thinking about Gregory Polanco, we’re on the same...

Mookie Betts Impressions: Sizing Up Rookie’s First Stint With Red Sox

BOSTON — Mookie Betts’ first major league stint with the Red Sox lasted 16 days. The 21-year-old played in 10 games. Betts was optioned back to Triple-A Pawtucket before Saturday’s game against the Kansas City Royals at Fenway Park to make room for outfielder Shane Victorino, who was activated from the disabled list. It shouldn’t be long before Betts finds his way back to...

Boston Red Sox: Mookie Betts gets the call

In my previous article, I mentioned I was going to write about a couple of prospects who the Boston Red Sox needed to promote immediately. With the Sox calling up Mookie Betts from Triple-A Pawtucket yesterday, that whole idea is kind of busted. Well, actually, it’s completely busted. Betts was going to be the focal point of said article. So considering Boston is making moves faster...

The Mookie Era Begins Tonight In The Bronx

Where else, right? Mookie Betts—the newest Red Sox phenom—will make his MLB debut tonight against The Evil Ones on national television. No pressure, kid—just strap it on and have fun. Betts will likely play right field, but it's unclear where exactly he'll hit in the order. Manager John Farrell seems to be putting it all in perspective for the 21-year old, "He...

Mookie Betts Promoted to Red Sox

When I wrote about Mookie Betts and his fantasy prospects for this year earlier this week, I said he would be up in July or August, but the Red Sox have surprised everyone by calling the 21-year-old 2B/OF prospect up to the show today.  He will be available for tonight's game, but it remains to be seen if he will be in the starting lineup right away or not, but it would not...

Place Your 'Betts', Mookie To See Fenway Soon

Mookie Betts—the number five ranked prospect in the Red Sox organization—didn't do anything yesterday to hurt his chances of seeing The Show in 2014. In the AAA PawSox double-header sweep, Betts went 4-10 with a double and four RBIs. He also scored a run and had two stolen bases. Since being moved up from AA Portland, the 21-year old has reached base in all 15 games for the...
