  • Mookie Betts To Serve As Leadoff Hitter In 2023

    Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder/second baseman Mookie Betts will serve as the club's leadoff hitter for 2023, according to skipper Dave Roberts. Roberts noted that there were discussions surrounding the lefty-swinging Gavin Lux (knee) leading off against certain right-hander pitchers, but with Lux out for the season with an ACL tear, it will be Betts as the full-time leadoff man. The 30-year-old Betts, who will start approximately 20 games at second base this season, hit .269 with 35 home runs, 12 stolen bases and an .873 OPS across 142 games in the 2022 campaign. The 2018 AL MVP's bat has been at least 30% above league average in each of the last five seasons, per wRC+, and gains significant value as the leadoff hitter in an offense that led all of baseball with 847 runs scored a season ago. He should certainly be one of the first outfielders off the board on draft day.

  • Mookie Betts To Play Around 20 Games At Second Base

    Los Angeles Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said that outfielder Mookie Betts would play closer to 20 games at second base during the regular season to give Miguel Vargas days off when necessary. In addition to gaining second base eligibility in some fantasy leagues, Betts will serve as LA's leadoff man. It will give him more opportunities to score runs, but it will also take away valuable RBI opportunities. The 30-year-old will come off the board towards the back end of the first round of fantasy drafts this spring. The six-time All-Star hit .269/.340/.533 with an .873 OPS, career-high 35 home runs, 82 RBI, league-high 117 runs scored and 12 stolen bases in 639 plate appearances and 142 games in his third year with the Blue in 2022.

  • Mookie Betts To See Time At Second In World Baseball Classic

    Team USA manager Mark DeRosa said Tuesday that Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Mookie Betts will play some second base for Team USA during this year's World Baseball Classic. Team USA's only true second baseman on the roster is Mets Jeff McNeil, but Betts began his career as a second baseman and has sporadically played it throughout his big-league career. This plan may also be implemented by the Dodgers at times this season, as Gavin Lux (knee) will miss the entire 2023 season due to a torn ACL. Betts is a top fantasy option in a relatively shallow position of outfield, but second base is even shallower. As such, his fantasy value could rise that much more if he becomes second base eligible during the season.

  • Mookie Betts, Chris Taylor Could See Time In Middle Infield

    Los Angeles Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said outfielder Mookie Betts playing more second base this season is being discussed. Roberts also said that outfielder Chris Taylor will start a throwing program in order to play more shortstop this year after the news that Gavin Lux (knee) will miss the entire 2023 season due to a torn ACL. In addition to Taylor, offseason acquisition Miguel Rojas is a top candidate to take over for Lux at the 6 this year. Taylor has plenty of experience playing shortstop in his career, so a platoon could develop with Rojas at shortstop. Betts, who is already considered a top-10 fantasy asset, would be even more valuable to fantasy managers this year if he gained second base eligibility.

  • Mookie Betts Gains Eight Pounds

    Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Mookie Betts gained eight pounds in the offseason to add some strength. It came at the recommendation of Driveline, where he went this winter "because my employer told me to." Betts made his sixth All-Star team in 2022 and also clubbed a career-high 35 home runs while slashing .269/.340/.533 with an .873 OPS, 82 RBI, a league-high 117 runs scored and 12 stolen bases in 639 plate appearances in 142 games. The increased power was nice, but it also led to a lower batting average, and the 30-year-old also isn't running nearly as much as he did earlier in his career with the Boston Red Sox. Betts isn't in the discussion as one of the first players off the board in fantasy drafts anymore, but he's still a fine first-round selection.
