Mookie Betts is in the final month of what’s been an MVP-caliber campaign, and his Boston Red Sox are in the thick of a pennant race.
Betts has either surpassed or is on the verge of surpassing career highs in every offensive category: His .314 batting average, .547 slugging percentage, .903 OPS, .131 OPS+, 188 hits, 30 home runs, 102 RBIs, 107 runs and 23 stolen bases all are the best of his short career. That alone is enough to give Betts a spot in Tom Caron’s DraftKings lineup Monday, when Betts and the Sox take on lefty Wade Miley and the Baltimore Orioles.
