Mookie gets a day

Mookie Betts got his first day off of the season on Thursday night against the Rockies. Betts was Boston’s only player to start the first 46 games.

In his place, the ultra-hot Jackie Bradley Jr. batted leadoff. However, this is just a one-day thing, as  Bradley will move back toward the middle of the order on Friday.

Blake Swihart is Boston’s emergency catcher tonight if something happens to Christian Vazquez. Ryan Hanigan is still ill. Manager John Farrell said there’s a chance Swihart could start at catcher on Friday if Hanigan isn’t up to it.
