  • Dodgers' Mookie Betts: Slugs three-run blast

    Betts went 1-for-5 with a three-run home run in Thursday's 5-3 win over San Francisco.

    The Dodgers trailed by a run heading into fourth, but Betts flipped the script with his 404-foot, three-run shot. The homer was his second of the four-game series and his fifth in 15 games since the All-Star break. Betts also has 12 RBI, 11 runs, a stolen base and a 5:7 BB:K so far in the second half of the campaign.

  • Dodgers' Mookie Betts: Collects three hits, homer

    Betts went 3-for-5 with a solo home run, a double and two additional RBI in a 9-5 win against the Giants on Tuesday.

    Betts recorded an RBI on each of his three hits with a single in the second, a home run in the fourth and a double in the eighth for his first three-hit game since May 30. The 29-year-old has opened August strong -- going a combined 4-for-10 with two doubles and a home run through two games -- after slashing a subpar .248/.325/.495 in July. Despite the more pedestrian performance of late, Betts' .877 OPS still ranks 12th in MLB while his 24 long balls tie him with former teammate Corey Seager for 10th.

Betts has also racked up 52 RBI, 68 runs and seven stolen bases to go along with a .265/.338/.529 slash line.

  • Dodgers' Mookie Betts: Slugs decisive homer

    Betts went 1-for-4 with a three-run home run, a walk and a stolen base in Thursday's 9-6 win against San Francisco.

    Betts put himself in scoring position by taking a walk and stealing second base in the fourth inning, but he was left stranded at third. The All-Star outfielder took matters into his own hands in the eighth, slamming a three-run homer to left field to break a 6-6 tie. Since returning from a rib injury July 3, Betts has gone deep four times and has driven in 10 runs over 57 at-bats.

  • Dodgers' Mookie Betts: Goes deep twice in victory

    Betts went 2-for-3 with a pair of solo home runs and a hit-by-pitch in Thursday's 5-3 win over the Cubs.

    Betts led off the Dodgers' half of the first inning with a solo shot to left field, and he swatted another solo blast -- this time to center field -- in the eighth. This was his third multi-homer game of the season, and Betts is now up to 20 long balls overall. That puts him on pace to exceed the career-best 32 homers he swatted while with Boston during his MVP campaign in 2018.

  • Dodgers' Mookie Betts: Swats solo shot

    Betts went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Tuesday's 5-2 win over the Rockies.

    Betts was back in right field Tuesday after drawing a start at second base Monday. The 29-year-old was initially going to be used in the infield after returning from a fractured rib, but Chris Taylor's (foot) impending trip to the injured list means the Dodgers need Betts in the outfield instead. In three games since his return, Betts has gone 4-for-11 (.364), picking up right where he left off. He has a .277/.354/.547 slash line, 18 homers, 42 RBI, 56 runs scored and six stolen bases in 63 contests overall.

  • Dodgers' Mookie Betts: Starting at second base

    Betts will hit leadoff and start at second base in Monday's game against the Rockies.

    It's no surprise that Betts is occupying the top spot in the order, but it is notable that he is getting the start at the keystone, as that could make him eligible at that position in some leagues. Betts is not a stranger to second base, having started five games there a season ago.

  • Dodgers' Mookie Betts: Doubles twice in return

    Betts (rib) went 2-for-3 with two doubles, two walks and two runs scored in Sunday's 4-2 loss to the Padres.

    Betts hit doubles in the first and ninth innings, coming around to score both times. He also played the full game in right field, taking over for Chris Taylor (foot). Betts' return after a two-week absence should be a welcome sight for fantasy managers and Dodgers fans, and it looks like he'll immediately reclaim his leadoff role, pushing Trea Turner back to second in the order. Betts hadn't posted a multi-hit effort since June 4. He's now slashing .278/.357/.544 with 17 home runs, 40 RBI, 55 runs scored, six stolen bases and 15 doubles through 61 contests this year.

  • Dodgers' Mookie Betts: Activated Sunday, starting in RF

    The Dodgers reinstated Betts (rib) from the 10-day injured list ahead of Sunday's series finale with the Padres, Jack Harris of the Los Angeles Times reports. He'll start in right field and bat leadoff, per Harris.

    Utility man Eddy Alvarez was optioned to Triple-A Oklahoma City to clear room on the 26-man active roster for Betts, who was sidelined for approximately two and a half weeks with a fractured right rib. Though Betts still doesn't feel 100 percent when he throws, the Dodgers' decision to deploy him in the outfield rather than at designated hitter suggests the team doesn't have many concerns about his ability to play defense. Before hitting the shelf, Betts was on his way to a big season with a .273 average, 17 home runs, six stolen bases, 53 runs and 40 RBI through 60 games.

  • Dodgers' Mookie Betts: Expected back Sunday

    Manager Dave Roberts said after Saturday's game that he expects Betts (ribs) to start in right field Sunday against the Padres, David Vassegh of AM 570 LA Sports reports.

    Look for Betts to be back in the leadoff spot against lefty MacKenzie Gore in the series finale. Betts took live BP before Saturday's game, and while throwing is still painful for him, the Dodgers will return him to the outfield regardless after Chris Taylor suffered a foot injury Saturday. Betts hit .273/.349/.535 with 17 homers, six steals, 40 RBI and 53 runs scored in 60 games before hitting the shelf with the fractured rib.

  • Dodgers' Mookie Betts: Could return Sunday or Monday

    Betts (ribs) said Saturday that he could be activated Sunday or Monday, Jack Harris of the Los Angeles Times reports.

    Betts took live at-bats ahead of Saturday's game against the Dodgers and said afterward that the pain stemming from his fractured rib has been more tolerable recently. The 29-year-old will likely play second base upon his return since long throws are still painful for him, but he expects to be back in the outfield before too long.

  • Dodgers' Mookie Betts: Takes live at-bats Saturday

    Betts (ribs) took live at-bats prior to Saturday's game against the Padres, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.

    Betts sustained a fractured rib two weeks ago but resumed baseball activities this week and has been swinging a bat recently. Saturday's hitting session against live pitching is likely one of the final steps in his rehab process, so it's certainly possible that the 29-year-old rejoins the Dodgers in the coming days.

  • Dodgers' Mookie Betts: Could face live pitching Saturday

    Betts (ribs) could hit against live pitching Saturday, J.P. Hoornstra of the Los Angeles Daily News reports.

    Betts has been out for just shy out two weeks with a fractured rib, but it doesn't look like he'll miss too much more time. He hit off a machine Friday but could face Caleb Ferguson (forearm) in live batting practice Saturday, setting him up for a return a few days later.

  • Dodgers' Mookie Betts: Earlier return possible

    Betts (ribs) could return at some point during the Dodgers' upcoming series against the Rockies, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.

    Betts took practice Thursday and appears to have come out of the activity feeling well. This news puts Betts in line for a potential return as early as July 4, though manager Dave Roberts said the timing will ultimately come down to pain tolerance, per David Vassegh of AM 570 LA Sports. In an effort to minimize Betts' discomfort, Roberts also said that it was possible that he would play second base initially to avoid making throws from the outfield.
