Players of the Week, April 14-20: Mookie Betts & Brian Johnson


Mookie Betts, 2B, Portland SeaDogs - 4 G, 18 AB, 18 PA, 8 H, 1 HR, 1 2B, 6 R, 2 RBI, 0 BB/4 K, .444/.444/.667

Betts continued his season-long hit parade en route to earning his second SoxProspects.com Player of the Week nod (previously April 3-6), bookending his week with multi-hit performances going 2 for 5 with a double Monday against Binghamton (NYM) and finished his week going 4 for 5 with a home run at New Britain (MIN) Saturday. The SoxProspects.com sixth-ranked prospect is currently leading the Eastern League in batting average and on-base percentage.

Season Line: .452/.500/.694, 28 for 62, 2 HR, 7 2B, 1 3B, 7 BB/7 K, 7 SB (1 CS), 15 G.

Brian Johnson, SP, Salem Red Sox - 1 G, 6.0 IP, 1-0, 0.00 ERA, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB/5 K, 0.00 WHIP, 7.50 K/9, 1.75 G/F, .000 BAA, .000 OPSA

In case the stat-line didn't make it clear enough, Johnson earned his Pitcher of the Week honors on the strength of his six-inning stretch of perfection last Friday at Winston-Salem (CHW) with five strikeouts. This outing represented a welcome rebound for Johnson who opened the season well but scuffled in his two subsequent starts. He is currently the twentieth-ranked prospect in the organization by SoxProspects.com.

Season Line: 4 G, 2-1, 5.03 ERA, 11 ER, 28 H, 19.2 IP, 6 BB/25 K, .244 BAA
