Betts Takes Home Player Of The Week Honor
Red Sox outfielder Mookie Betts was given the American League Player of the Week for his work with Boston over the past six games. It was the second time Betts has received the award.
Betts posted a .375 batting average with three home runs, 11 runs batted in, eight runs scored, and a stolen base with the Sox over the past week.
On the season Betts is batting .296 with six home runs and 25 RBIs, and during 2016 he finished second in the AL MVP voting, while winning a silver slugger and a gold glove in the outfield. He also nabbed an all-star selection, the first of his career.
The Sox have a travel day on Monday before starting a two-game series with St Louis and a six contest road stand. Boston is currently 19-18 on the year and four games back of the New York Yankees in the AL East standings.
