Mookie Betts Returns To Sox Lineup Tonight In Miami

The dynamic young center-fielder of the Boston Red Sox, Mookie Betts, will be back in the team's lineup tonight in Miami. Betts has been on rehab assignment from a stint on the seven-day concussion disabled list. The 22-year old was red hot before he hit the DL, and is hitting .265 overall this year—with 10 HRs, 48 RBIs and 13 stolen bases. He has also almost fully adapted to his new CF role—after coming up through the Boston system as a second baseman. His presence at the top of the lineup will hopefully re-ignite the Red Sox offense—which has yet to find a consistent footing in 2015.
