Boston Red Sox OF Mookie Betts will temporarily be moved to second base, and his first game there could come Friday, Sept. 12, according to manager John Farrell. 2B Dustin Pedroia (wrist) is out for the season, and 3B Brock Holt (head) has not played since Sept. 5 due to concussion-like symptoms. OF Rusney Castillo could be added to the roster next week. Betts would play second base "fairly regularly." He hasn't played second base since he was with Class AAA July 28.
