Red Sox All-Star Talk: Mookie Betts To Start All-Star Game

Red Sox All-Star Talk: Mookie Betts To Start MLB All-Star Game Due To Mike Trout Injury

Boston Red Sox outfielder Mookie Betts will now start in the MLB All-Star Game.

This news came after news came out that Mike Trout will miss the game with a thumb injury.

Betts was voted in as a reserve and was given the starting role because he had the most votes of any non-starter on the American League roster. This is the same

This is the same way Betts started in last year’s All-Star game.

Betts is batting .286 with 15 homers and 51 RBIs and has also paired it with elite defense in right field. He had a bad month of May where he batted .256, but Betts followed that up with a month of June that saw him hit .296.

Mookie Betts is currently on pace to hit 28 home runs and 94 RBIs.

The 24-year-old superstar is the only Red Sox starter at the moment with Chris Sale and Craig Kimbrel being the only other Red Sox All-Stars. Shortstop Xander Bogaerts is in the Final Vote and fans can vote him in for the next few days.
