Mookie Betts not expected to miss any games despite soreness

Mookie Betts

Mookie Betts is not expected to miss any time despite leaving Sunday’s 4-3 win over the New York Mets due to soreness in his side.

The Boston Red Sox star was 0-for-2 with an RBI and two strikeouts before hurting himself on a throw home. He was replaced in the field by Tzu-Wei Lin.

The Boston Globe’s Pete Abraham noted that Betts spent time on the disabled list earlier this season with an abdominal strain, which caused some concern that he may have re-aggravated a condition.

However, Red Sox manager Alex Cora said that he still expects Betts to DH during the team’s next game, which is on Tuesday against the rival New York Yankees.

At 103-47, the Red Sox have the best record in MLB and have already clinched a playoff spot. Betts is batting .337 with a 1.049 OPS this season.
