Xander Bogaerts moving back to shortstop?
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Red Sox general manager Ben Cherington said Wednesday he hasn't ruled out moving Xander Bogaerts back to shortstop this season. However, manager John Farrell took a different stance Thursday, per MLB.com.

"We don't want to move Xander back and forth. We want some stability defensively," Farrell said. "Until that combination of players changes, we'll stay as is."

Manager backs slumping Xander Bogaerts
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

John Farrell has expressed support for Red Sox shortstop Xander Bogaerts despite monumental struggles at the plate. The manager is planning to keep Bogaerts in the lineup.

"The one message we've been very strong and clear on is that we're committed to him," Farrell told the Providence Journal. "The one thing that we have to do is be consistent with him. He feels and senses the positive view of him. That is a long-term player for us, and we're not going to abandon someone because there's some growing pains along the way."

Bogaerts owned a .395 on-base percentage and .464 slugging percentage after more than 200 plate appearances. But he is hitting a disturbing .110 with a .151 OBP in his last 106 plate appearances with 29 strikeouts and just four walks. He has been flailing away at pitches out of the zone and has been dropped to ninth in the batting order.

Fantasy Analysis | 1404419109
Keep the faith in Xander Bogaerts
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

Xander Bogaerts' starting rate has dropped from 86 to 40 percent in the last four weeks, which is fine. He's been in a debilitating slump since about the time the Red Sox moved him from shortstop to third base, batting .078 (6 for 77) in 21 games (going hitless in 15 of them), so you can understand why Fantasy owners would want to try their luck with someone else.

But what concerns me is how his ownership rate has dropped from 95 to 82 during that same time.

Granted, it's your team, and anything that prevents you from running it your way is not in the spirit of Fantasy Baseball ... so, you know, take whatever I have to say however you need to take it. But Bogaerts was as high-end as prospects get coming into the year and, less a month ago, was meeting expectatons and then some with a .299 batting average and .840 OPS. He's eligible at the two weakest positions in Fantasy and is as capable as anyone at either of elevating his game to the highest stratosphere in the second half.

I won't argue this slump has been really bad, almost unbelievably bad, but it's also been fairly short. When a player with his ability lives up to it 75 percent of the time, why focus on the 25 percent of the time he doesn't?

Red Sox not considering demotion for Xander Bogaerts
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

In spite of infielder Xander Bogaerts continued struggles at the plate, Red Sox manager John Farrell told MLB.com the team is not thinking about sending him down to the minors for some more seasoning.

"We haven't even considered that," Farrell said.

Bogaerts entered play Wednesday 0 for his last 19 and 2 for 42 since June 18. He is hitting .242/.322/.366 in 298 at-bats over 80 games during his rookie season.
