Markus Lynn Betts Bio Info

Markus Lynn Betts. Signed by Danny Watkins (Red Sox). Batted .509 and stole 30 bases to earn Louisville Slugger High School All-American honors as a senior in 2011 at John Overton (TN) High School. At Overton High, was also a member of the basketball team and a standout bowler. Participated in the Professional Bowlers Association's World Series of Bowling VII, which took place in Reno, Nevada in December 2015... Was a part of ESPN's broadcast of the PBA Championship in Reno later that month. Named after former NBA point guard Mookie Blaylock.


Hit .291 (174-for-597) with 92 R, 42 2B, 8 3B, 18 HR, 77 RBI, 46 BB, and 21 SB in his 1st full major league season at age 22... Led the Red Sox in runs, doubles, and triples as the team's youngest primary leadoff hitter since Ellis Burks in 1987. Finished tied for 19th in AL MVP voting... Received the Jackie Jensen Hustle Award from the Boston Baseball Writers, presented each year to a Red Sox player for spirit and determination. Placed among AL leaders in 2B (third), 3B (tied for ninth), XBH (ninth, 68), multi-hit games (sixth, 52), 3+ hit games (tied for seventh, 15), SB (tied for 10th), AVG (14th), AVG with RISP (eighth, .333), AVG at home (ninth, .322), and AVG at night (eighth, .304)... Was worth 6.0 wins above replacement according to Baseball Reference, tied for sixth best among AL players. Was the hardest player to double up in the majors, grounding into just two double plays in 597 AB (298.5 AB/ GIDP)... Went 323 AB before his first GIDP, most by a Red Sox to begin a season since Otis Nixon in 1994 (398 AB). Was 1 of 12 AL players to hit more fly balls than ground balls (0.99 GB/FB)... Had the 14th-lowest strikeout rate in the AL (7.98 PA/SO)... Had the seventh-highest contact rate among AL qualifiers (85% of swings made contact). Was the first major leaguer with at least 42 2B, 8 3B, and 18 HR in an age-22 season or younger since SF's Jack Clark in 1978 (46 2B, 8 3B, 25 HR)... The last AL player to accomplish the feat (and the only other Red Sox player ever to do so at that young an age) was Ted Williams in both 1940 (43 2B, 14 3B, 23 HR) and 1939 (44 2B, 11 3B, 31 HR). No other AL player had ever reached his totals in 2B (42), HR (18), and SB (21) in a season at 22 years old or younger... The only NL player to do it that young was Cincinnati's Vada Pinson in 1959 (47 2B, 20 HR, 21 SB). His 68 XBH marked the most by a Red Sox in a season, all before turning 23, in 75 years... Ted Williams (80 XBH) and Bobby Doerr (69 XBH) both accomplished the feat in 1940. Joined Ellis Burks (20 HR, 27 SB in 1987) as the only Red Sox ever with as many as 15 HR and 20 SB in a season at age 22 or younger. Topped the majors with 69 RBI and 60 XBH from the leadoff spot in only 117 starts batting 1st, most by a Red Sox at age 22 or younger since at least 1914... His 106 leadoff starts as a center fielder were third most in a season since 1988 prior to turning 23 (Mike Trout, 110 in 2012; Andrew McCutchen, 108 in 2009). Played 133 games (130 starts) in center field... Also made 11 starts in RF, all during the team's last 17 games from Sept. 18 on. Led the Red Sox with 10 outfield assists, all from center field ...Marked the fourth-most assists in the majors from center field... Placed fourth among AL centerfielders with nine defensive runs saved, according to Fangraphs. Hit .315 (141-for-448) in his last 108 games beginning May 19, second in the AL behind BOS' Xander Bogaerts (.335). Placed on the 7-day concussion DL on July 29... In 48 games following Aug. 11 activation, hit .340 (71-for-209) with 17 2B, 2 3B, 8 HR, 29 RBI and a .941 OPS... Ranked second in the AL in that time in hits and total bases (tied, 116). Had the team's two longest hit streaks in 2015, a 13-gamer from June 11-26 and a team-high 18-gamer from Aug. 24-Sept. 13... Was the third Red Sox to hit in 18 straight games before turning 23 years old, along with Ted Williams in 1941 (23 games) and Bobby Doerr in 1939 (18). Had a career-high 36-game on-base streak from Aug. 24-Oct. 3 (.360/.416/.607, 54-for-150, 14 2B, 3B, 7 HR, 14 BB, HBP), longest in a season by a Red Sox since Dustin Pedroia reached in 37 straight games from June 15-July 28/11. Went 2-for-4, HR, BB as Boston's leadoff man and centerfielder on Opening Day, April 6 at Philadelphia... At 22, was the youngest Red Sox with an Opening Day home run since Tony Conigliaro (20 in 1965)... Was the club's youngest Opening Day leadoff hitter since Rico Petrocelli (21 in 1965) and youngest Opening Day centerfielder since Conigliaro (19 in 1964). In Boston's home opener on April 13 vs. Washington, became the first Red Sox leadoff hitter with at least 1 HR, 4 RBI, and 2 SB in a game since RBI became official in 1920... Made home run-saving catch to rob Bryce Harper in the top of the first inning, then hit a three-run home run in the second... Stole second base and third base on the same play in the bottom of the first inning with Washington in a shift for David Ortiz, marking only the 12th time since 1915 (including postseason) a player stole two or more bases on the same play (Source: Trent McCotter, SABR). Had his first career walk-off hit on April 27 vs. Toronto (ninth-inning single). On May 5 vs. Tampa Bay, accounted for both Red Sox runs in a 2-0 win with a pair of solo homers, his 1st career multi-home run game... Went deep in the sixth inning, the team's first hit of the game, and did it again in the eighth... Was the youngest Red Sox with a multi-home run game since Jim Rice in 1975 and the club's youngest leadoff hitter to do it since Bobby Doerr at 21 in 1939... According to Elias, became just the second leadoff hitter in MLB history to hit at least 2 HR and drive in all of his team's runs in a shutout, along with LA Dodgers' Carl Crawford on Apr. 28, 2013 vs. Milwaukee (two solo home run). Earned first career AL Player of the Week Award for June 15-21... Led MLB with a .581 AVG, 1.594 OPS, 18 hits, 19 times on base, and 31 total bases in those seven days.
