Red Sox's Xander Bogaerts: Sets base-stealing goal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bogaerts has set a goal to steal at least 20 bases during the 2017 season, Peter Abraham of the Boston Globe reports.

Bogaerts stole a career-high 13 bags last season, but feels Boston's offensive plan will need to be different without David Ortiz in the lineup. Whereas last season he would remain put when getting on base in front of Ortiz, he feels the offense may need to a bit more creative in 2017. Adding a stolen-base element to his burgeoning offensive repertoire will certainly enhance the shortstop's value.

Red Sox's Xander Bogaerts: Read and react to pitches
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bogaerts' slump during the second half of 2016 was partially due to him making a decision where he wanted to hit the ball before the pitch reached him, Brian MacPherson of the Providence Journal reports.

Bogaerts hit just .253/.317/.412/.729 after the All-Star break, though within that stretch there were pockets of a better approach, something that assistant hitting coach Victor Rodriguez pointed out to the shortstop. "You just have to start up the middle," Bogaerts said. "If you start up the middle, you can hit in and away. Sometimes I think too much away, and when they throw me in, all I can do is a little jam shot. If you think middle and keep your body straight, you see it and recognize -- and boom." As much as the 24-year-old shortstop has developed since entering the majors, the last bit of potential that remains untapped is avoiding those annoying prolonged slumps. That will come when he consistently stays back and reacts accordingly to the pitch delivered to him.

Red Sox's Xander Bogaerts: Set to play third base in WBC
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bogaerts is slated to play third base for Team Netherlands in the World Baseball Classic, Eduardo A. Encina of The Baltimore Sun reports.

The Orioles' Jonathan Schoop confirmed it while he said he'd play second base. Bogaerts is no stranger to the hot corner, having logged 53 games there in two big-league seasons. Perhaps there's a modicum of concern for someone playing out of position in this exhibition tournament, but Bogaerts remains a solid top shortstop in a crowded fantasy class.

Red Sox's Xander Bogaerts: Avoids arbitration
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bogaerts agreed to a one-year deal with the Red Sox on Friday, avoiding arbitration.

Terms of the agreement were not available. Bogaerts set a career high last season in home runs (21), steals (13), runs (115) and RBI (89). He should continue to be a five-category force at shortstop in 2017.

Red Sox's Xander Bogaerts: Smacks 21st homer Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bogaerts went 1-for-4 with his 21st homer and two strikeouts in Thursday's loss to the Yankees.

Bogaerts now has more home runs in 154 games this season than he did in 318 coming into 2016. The 23-year-old shortstop has already set career highs in counting stats across the board with three games to play. He likely won't appear in all three, though, given that Boston rested five starters in this one.
