Mookie Betts Off DL, Back Atop Tonight's Red Sox Lineup Against The Orioles

Hallelujah! Mookie Betts has been activated off the disabled list and will bat lead-off tonight in the Red Sox line-up against the Orioles in Baltimore. Betts had missed fourteen straight games before tonight's contest with left-side tightness. As indicated by the results to our poll, almost four in five readers (77%) were (to some degree) concerned that the injury might be more severe than anticipated. But, all is now right with the world—and things should quickly re-align themselves with the Boston offense. Line-up: Betts RF, Benintendi LF, Martinez DH, Moreland 1B, Bogaerts SS, Devers 3B, Núñez 2B, Vazquez C, Bradley CF. Wright RHP.
