Bogaerts went 1-for-2 with a solo home run and two walks during Wednesday's loss to Kansas City. Bogaerts has hit three bombs over his past four games but just five for the season, so he's currently locked into a nice power groove at the dish. The shortstop is turning in another solid fantasy campaign with a .322/.376/.474 slash line, 33 RBI, eight stolen bases and 44 runs. He projects to remain a high-floor asset hitting in the heart of a strong Boston lineup, too.
Bogaerts hit two home runs and drove in four in a 3-for-4 performance Sunday against Houston. Bogaerts doubled his home run total in the process. This marks the first multi-home run game of Bogaerts's career. After mashing 21 home runs last season, Bogaerts's early home run total was a bit disappointing. But he has been bringing the power in the form of doubles (18) and triples (4), so it's possible Sunday's slugging show is a sign of things to come.
Bogaerts went 2-for-5 with a double and three RBI in Wednesday's 7-3 win over the Phillies. It's his fourth multi-hit performance in his last six games, and Bogaerts sports a .345/.367/.517 slash line over that stretch with four runs and four RBI. While his power production remains disappointing from a fantasy perspective -- the 24-year-old hasn't homered since May 30 and has just two on the year -- he still carries a career-high .457 SLG and .834 OPS.
Bogaerts went 4-for-5 with a solo home run in Tuesday's 13-7 win over the White Sox. After waiting until last Thursday to hit his first homer of the season, Bogaerts needed just five games to go yard again. In addition to the power surge, he's now hitting .417/.450/.639 with two steals, eight RBI and 10 runs over his last nine games.
Bogaerts went 2-for-4 with a home run, two RBI, two runs scored and a stolen base in Thursday's 6-2 win over the Rangers. The homer was his first of the season. It took 181 plate appearances for Bogaerts to hit his first homer, but that doesn't mean he hasn't produced. Thursday's multi-hit effort was his third straight and 11th in 22 games during the month of May. The shortstop leads Boston in hits, runs, stolen bases, batting average and on-base percentage. His track record has been that of a hitter who heats up as the weather gets warmer and that pattern is playing out once again in 2017.
