Mookie Betts has optioned back to Triple-A Pawtucket.
Betts has sat for four of the last seven games and is only batting .244 on the season. With Kelly Johnson coming back, it's best that Betts heads back to Pawtucket where he will be able to play full-time. We should see him back in September once rosters expand.ANALYST: Howard Bender
George Springer went 2-for-4 with a double and one RBI in the Astros 6-2 loss to the Tigers on Friday.
Springer has now collected two hits in three straight games which has helped raise his average from .195 to .214 on the season. A concussion sidelined Springer in early May but he has played well since his return, hitting .282 with six runs, two home runs and four RBI. Fantasy owners will have to deal with the low batting average as Springer is once again on pace to rank among the league leaders in strikeouts but he’s already reached double-digit stole bases and could flirt with a 30/30 season given his potential.
