Mookie Betts News
Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Mookie Betts isn't in the team's lineup for the first game of a doubleheader against the Arizona Diamondbacks on Tuesday. Betts is hitting .273 with a .345 on-base percentage, 34 home runs, and 12 stolen bases in 583 plate appearances this season. The Dodgers will instead start Joey Gallo in right field against the Diamondbacks and right-hander Zach Davies. Gallo is batting .167 this season with a .286 on-base percentage, 18 home runs, and three stolen bases in 378 plate appearances. He'll hit fourth on Tuesday.
Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Mookie Betts clubbed his 33rd long ball of the season as his team routed the Padres 12-1 on Saturday night. The former AL MVP led off the first inning with a triple, and then his three-run blast in the fourth off Sean Manaea helped blow the game open as he finished the evening going 2-for-4 with two runs and three RBI. Betts has put up stellar numbers so far in 2022 with 73 RBI, 104 runs, 12 steals, and a .288 BA through 114 games, which should be enough to give him some NL MVP consideration by season's end.
Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Mookie Betts isn't in the team's lineup on Monday for a matchup with the Miami Marlins and right-handed starter Pablo Lopez. The 29-year-old is in the midst of another highly productive season, batting .281 with a .350 on-base percentage, 31 home runs, and 12 stolen bases in 500 plate appearances so far. Joey Gallo will move over to start in right field with Chris Taylor stepping in as the team's left field. The outfielders will hit sixth and seventh respectively. Shortstop Trea Turner is batting leadoff against Lopez and the Marlins.
After a bit of a down year in 2021, Betts bounced back in 2022 hitting .269/.340/.533 with 35 homers, 82 RBI, 117 runs and 12 stolen bases in 142 games. Concerns about his power diminishing were cast aside as he set a new career high in homers, fuelled by a jump in his HardHit% (44.9% up from 41.0%) and Barrel% (9.7% up from 7.8%). You might be concerned by his career-high 16.3% K% but that still ranked in the 81st percentile and his 8.6% BB% still ranked in the 55th percentile despite being its lowest since 2017. Gone are the 20+ stolen base days (something he hasn't achieved since 2018) but the bigger bases might help him creep up to ~15 again and double-digit steals should still be achieved regardless of that. As long as Betts continues to be the Dodgers' leadoff hitter, he will still score an elite number of runs and provide solid RBI in that lineup. Currently, with an ADP ~10, Betts is a perfect late first-round option in your drafts.
