Betts went 2-for-5 with a solo homer in Sunday's win over the Orioles.
Betts made his first start at second base in the major leagues Saturday and is expected to remain there for the balance of the season, ESPN Boston reports. "As much as I said before about not moving him out of center field, here we are putting him at second base," manager John Farrell said. "I want to minimize the back-and-forth to him. In fairness to him, that would be the approach. It kind of points at Mookie remaining at second base."
Betts will shift to second base as early as Friday, the Boston Globe reports.
Betts will bat leadoff Saturday against the Blue Jays, Pete Abraham of the Boston Globe reports.
The Red Sox want Betts to focus on outfield for the remainder of the season, CSN New England reports. "We think he can be a good player and given that he's had less reps in the outfield and that's where he's been, he obviously looks like he's made quick improvements out there. It looks like he's going to be plenty good to play out there if that's where the opportunity is," said general manager Ben Cherington.
