Dodgers' Mookie Betts: Should play Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Dave Roberts said he expects Betts (forearm) to start Thursday versus the Padres, Jorge Castillo of the Los Angeles Times reports.

The 28-year-old was held out of Tuesday's lineup after being hit by a pitch on the right forearm Monday, but he isn't expected to miss additional time after X-rays came back negative. Betts will have the benefit of Wednesday's scheduled off day to aid in his recovery, and he should be back in the lineup Thursday, barring a setback.

Dodgers' Mookie Betts: X-rays come back negative
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said X-rays on Betts' right forearm returned negative Tuesday, but the outfielder is still managing some soreness, Bill Plunkett of The Orange County Register reports.

Though Betts is out of the lineup for Tuesday's series finale after he was plunked by a pitch late in Monday's loss to Seattle, he was fortunate to avoid any structural damage to his forearm. Roberts noted that Betts was "feeling pretty good" after reporting to the ballpark Tuesday, so he should have a good chance at gaining clearance for the start of the Dodgers' four-game series with the Padres, which begins Thursday. The Dodgers will first see how Betts responds to treatment before deciding on his status for the weekend series.

Dodgers' Mookie Betts: Not starting Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Betts is not in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Mariners, Eric Stephen of SBNation.com reports.

Betts was hit by a pitch in the ninth inning of Monday's game against the Mariners. While he didn't exit the contest, which ended one at-bat later, it's no surprise to see him get at least one day off. The Dodgers will have an off day Wednesday, so Betts has two days to rest before the team opens a series with the Padres on Thursday. It's not yet clear whether he'll be ready to go by then.

Dodgers' Mookie Betts: Getting forearm checked out
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said after Monday's 4-3 loss to the Mariners that Betts (forearm) will undergo medical tests Tuesday before a determination is made on his availability for the series finale later that day, Jorge Castillo of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Betts went 2-for-4 with a double and a run scored over his first four plate appearances of the night before he was plunked on the right forearm by a pitch in the top of the ninth inning. Since the injury didn't affect Betts' ability to run the bases, he wasn't removed from the contest, but he'll be at risk of sitting out for the day game after a night game. The Dodgers should have a clearer picture of Betts' status for Tuesday's game and beyond once his medical tests are completed.

Dodgers' Mookie Betts: Hit by pitch late
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Betts was hit by a pitch on the right forearm in the ninth inning of Monday's 4-3 loss to the Mariners and appeared to be in considerable pain immediately afterward. He stayed in the game to run the bases, with the game ending on the next at-bat by teammate Corey Seager.

Betts needed some attention after the HBP, as well as some help taking off a batting glove. The Dodgers play a day game Tuesday, so it wouldn't be surprising if Betts was out of the lineup.

Dodgers' Mookie Betts: Takes seat for series finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Betts isn't in the lineup for Thursday's game against the Rockies, J.P. Hoornstra of the Los Angeles Daily News reports.

Betts went 2-for-8 with a home run, two walks and two strikeouts in the first two games of the series against Colorado. Luke Raley will take over in right field Thursday, batting eighth.

Dodgers' Mookie Betts: Returns with long ball
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Betts (back) went 1-for-5 with a solo home run and a strikeout in Monday's win over the Rockies.

Making his return from a four-game absence due to lower-back stiffness, Betts touched up Antonio Senzatela in his second plate appearance. It was his second homer this season, and Betts also has a couple steals already despite the missed time. Manager Dave Roberts said after the game that Betts will play center field Wednesday, per Bill Plunkett of The Orange County Register.

Dodgers' Mookie Betts: Back in action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Betts (back) will return to the lineup Tuesday against Colorado, David Vassegh of AM 570 LA Sports reports.

Betts' back stiffness never appeared to be a particularly serious issue, though it kept him out of the lineup for four straight games. He said Tuesday that the problem bothered him more while running than while swinging, so he should be set to build on his 1.029 OPS from his first five games in his return to action.

Dodgers' Mookie Betts: Won't play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Dave Roberts said Betts (back) won't play in Sunday's series finale against the Nationals, Eric Stephen of SBNation.com reports.

The 28-year-old isn't headed to the injured list yet, as Roberts indicated the team hopes the outfielder will be able to rejoin the lineup Tuesday after Monday's scheduled off day. Sunday will mark the fourth consecutive absence for Betts while he continues to deal with back stiffness. Edwin Rios and Zach McKinstry will man the corner outfield spots for the Dodgers in the series finale.

Dodgers' Mookie Betts: Remains sidelined Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Betts (back) isn't starting Saturday's game against the Nationals, Juan Toribio of MLB.com reports.

Betts will be held out of the Dodgers' lineup for a third consecutive game as he continues to deal with back stiffness. Zach McKinstry will start in right field and bat eighth.

Dodgers' Mookie Betts: Still out Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Betts (back) is out of Friday's lineup against the Nationals and is considered day-to-day, Jorge Castillo of the Los Angeles Times reports.

The 28-year-old was previously expected to be in the lineup Friday after being held out of Wednesday's lineup with back stiffness, but he needs more time to recover coming off Thursday's scheduled off day. Zach McKinstry will start in right field for the Dodgers in his absence.

Dodgers' Mookie Betts: Expected to play Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Betts (back) is expected to play Friday against the Nationals, Jorge Castillo of the Los Angeles Times reports.

He woke up with a stiff lower back Wednesday, which manager Dave Roberts said was residual from Tuesday's game. Zach McKinstry got the start in right field Wednesday in place of Betts.

Dodgers' Mookie Betts: Managing stiff back
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Dave Roberts said Betts is being held out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Athletics due to lower-back stiffness, Jorge Castillo of the Los Angeles Times reports.

The injury appears to be a day-to-day concern for Betts, who may just be receiving some preventative maintenance while the Dodgers wrap up their series in Oakland with a day game after a night game. Betts should benefit from a team off day Thursday before the Dodgers check back in on his condition ahead of Friday's series opener versus the Nationals in Los Angeles. Zach McKinstry will spell Betts in right field Wednesday.

Dodgers' Mookie Betts: First day off of 2021
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Betts is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Athletics, Eric Stephen of SBNation.com reports.

Though the Dodgers have the designated-hitter spot available in Oakland and are missing one of their big bats in Cody Bellinger (calf), manager Dave Roberts won't be determined from giving Betts what's presumably a pre-planned maintenance day. Zach McKinstry will man right field in place of Betts, who should return to the lineup for Friday's series opener versus Washington after a team off day Thursday.

Dodgers' Mookie Betts: Clubs first homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Betts went 2-for-5 with a solo home run and two stolen bases in Tuesday's 5-1 win over Oakland.

Betts provided a nice stat line for fantasy managers who roster him, notching his first two steals and his first homer of the campaign in the victory. The veteran outfielder has enjoyed a quietly successful start to the season, slashing .348/.464/.565 and collecting at least one hit in each of his five games thus far.

Dodgers' Mookie Betts: Gets early day off
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Betts will sit for the first time this season Saturday against the Rockies, J.P. Hoornstra of the Los Angeles Daily News reports.

Betts probably won't sit too often this season, but the Dodgers have enough depth that they can afford to give him more rest than he might receive on most other teams. He'll head to the bench in just the third game of the season, with Chris Taylor starting in right field.

Dodgers' Mookie Betts: Finishes spring on high note
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Betts led off the Dodgers' half of the first inning with a blast off Jose Quintana, then took Quintana deep again in the fourth frame. The All-Star outfielder finished the exhibition slate with a .318/.423/.523 slash line, two homers and three RBI. He'll be in his customary leadoff position when the Dodgers face Colorado on Opening Day.

Dodgers' Mookie Betts: Enjoying steady spring
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Betts is slashing .316/.435/.368 with five runs through 22 Cactus League plate appearances.

The veteran outfielder has flashed his typically steady bat throughout the exhibition slate, though he has only one extra-base hit (a double). Betts is set to man right field and bat leadoff for a stacked Dodgers team that will be vying for a second straight World Series championship.

Dodgers' Mookie Betts: Cranks home run
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Betts went 2-for-4 with a solo homer, a double and two runs Tuesday in a win over the Rays in Game 6 of the World Series.

Betts hit a solo homer in the eighth inning off Pete Fairbanks. The 28-year-old also hit a crucial double earlier to advance Austin Barnes to third base and proceeded to score what would be the game-winning run. Betts was a catalyst for the Dodgers all postseason and his impressive performance was crucial to them winning the World Series.
