Mookie Betts News
Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Mookie Betts helped the team complete a four-game sweep of the Arizona Diamondbacks on Wednesday. He went 1-for-4 with a double and a run scored in the team's 5-3 victory. Betts has been reaping the benefits of leading off for the vaunted Dodgers lineup lately. He's scored a total of 10 runs over his last seven games. However, he hasn't solely been relying on his teammates to drive him home as he has three home runs over that seven-game stretch. After hitting .230/.352/.378 in April, Betts has turned things around to the tune of a .299/.351/.597 slash line in May.
Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Mookie Betts is not in the starting lineup for Wednesday's game against Dillon Peters and the Pittsburgh Pirates. Trea Turner will be leading off for the game with Chris Taylor (knee) returning to the lineup and covering right field. This appears to be nothing but a regular day off for Betts. The 29-year-old is off to a nice start to the month of May. He's recorded at least one hit in seven of eight games this month while slashing .294/.324/.500. Expect to see him back in the lineup for Thursday's series opener against the Philadelphia Phillies.
Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Mookie Betts had a rough opening month to the year, but he's shown some signs of turning things around lately. He's currently riding a six-game hitting streak. Over the course of the streak, he's lifted his season-long slash line from .190/.329/.317 to .247/.350/.412. The six-game stretch has included two home runs, seven runs scored and zero strikeouts. Hopefully this is a sign of things to come for Betts, who had an underwhelming season in 2021 and was a popular bounce-back fantasy pick this spring.
In his first season in the National League, Mookie Betts seemed to make a mostly smooth transition, as the power and speed numbers still looked very impressive on the surface. He was among the MLB leaders in home runs (16) and stolen bases (10). His SLG% jumped from ,524 to .562 and at first glance, much of his standard stats did not fluctuate much. A deeper dive, though, revealed a somewhat altered approach. The Launch Angle went from 18.5 to 15.9, which trimmed his outstanding .313 xBA in 2019 to .285, and dropped his xSLG from .580 to .487. Betts' walk rate also fell from 13.7 to 9.8. Those trends don't necessarily point to anything alarming, though, and won't affect his ADP of third overall. Betts will hit leadoff in a terrific lineup and he is in the prime of his career and very content with his new ball club. The 2020 Statcast indicators may simply point to the fact that you should not expect him to approach a BA well over .300 or an OBP significantly over .400, and the 16 homers may not translate to well over 30-plus over a full campaign. He should produce more in line with his 2019 totals rather than 2018 from a hitting perspective, though the 10 steals in 55 games last year could point to 25-plus again in 2021. Let's not forget he became one of two Dodgers to steal two bases in multiple playoff games in the 2020 postseason.
