Bethancourt had 23 runs in 56 games with 182 plate appearances. In 2022, 169 at-bats were recorded. He had 42 hits, 11 doubles and four home runs. There were also four stolen bases and nine walks. Sixty-five bases were covered. A pitch and one sacrifice bunt twice hit Bethancourt. Bethancourt had an on-base percentage of.298 and a slugging per cent of.385.

Bethancourt had three hits in a single game this season, the third time Bethancourt has done so. In a 9-0 win by the Athletics over the Detroit Tigers on May 11, Bethancourt hit his first home run. He had three singles in this contest. On June 9, he lost to the Cleveland Guardians 8-4. Bethancourt scored one run, one double, and one home run in this game. The third came on June 11, when Bethancourt won the game 10-5 over the Guardians. Bethancourt scored one run with a home run and had two singles in this game.

Bethancourt, a Panamanian native aged 30, can play multiple defensive positions. He has played 128 of his 180 career games as a catcher. However, this season, he also played 31 games at the first base position. Bethancourt also played 12 outfield games.

Bethancourt will be on a better team. With a record of 45 wins, 40 losses and third place in American League East, At 29 wins and 58 losses, the Athletics are currently at the bottom of the American League West.

The Rays may have a decent record, but they are unlikely to win the American League East. The New York Yankees are too good this year. They have 61 wins and 25 losses and a 14-game lead over the Boston Red Sox.
