|08.18.14 at 3:32 pm ET|
Mookie Betts will play center field and bat eighth for the Red Sox Monday night as they begin a four-game series against the Angels at Fenway Park. The Sox called up Betts from Triple-A Pawtucket early Monday and sent down struggling center fielder Jackie Bradley Jr.
Another noteworthy name back in the Red Sox lineup Monday is Dustin Pedroia. The second baseman was out of the lineup Sunday with flu-like symptoms. Mike Napoli and Christian Vazquez both return to the lineup after a day off on Sunday.
