WATCH: Betts lays out for awesome catch in return to second base

Red Sox

Mookie Betts is throwing it back to his Portland Sea Dogs days.

The Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder has shifted to second base in his two games since returning from a hip injury Sunday. Betts has a history at the position, as he came up in the Boston Red Sox' system playing second base before transitioning to the outfield.

Tomase: Red Sox need mental toughness now more than ever

Turns out he can still flash the leather with his infield glove. Check out the incredible catch Betts made Tuesday night while playing second base against the Houston Astros:

Friendly reminder that Betts is a ridiculous athlete.

The 2018 American League MVP hasn't been his All-Star self this season, batting .272 with 15 home runs and 41 RBIs through 84 games. But he's 3-for-9 with a home run in two games since coming back from his hip injury, and he's certainly capable of getting hot down the stretch for the loaded Dodgers.

Regardless of how he fares at the plate, Betts clearly hasn't lost a step in the field -- no matter what position he plays.
