Since that ball on the wrist that he received Mookie Betts last month following wild pitching by Mariners closer Rafael Montero, the Dodgers star outfielder He hasn’t been the same again, at least that’s been noticed every time he takes at-bats at the plate.

On Friday night against the Giants, the former Red Sox star was back on duty by hitting a blank six times and leaving five men in scoring position. After what happened, the manager Dave Roberts already took action on the matter and has decided to send Betts to the bank for game three this Saturday.
