Xander Bogaerts credits rest for turnaround
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

Red Sox shortstop Xander Bogaerts, who homered again Sunday at Kansas City to give him four home runs along with a .359 (23 for 64) batting average in 16 games since returning from an eight-day absence for a concussion in late August, thinks that break may have contributed to this surge, according to the Boston Herald.

"When I went down for a few days helped me out a lot," he said. "So, I feel good."

Bogaerts suggested he also benefited from the All-Star break, and the numbers back it up. In the 11 games immediately after the break, he hit .317 (13 for 41) with two home runs compared to .103 (11 for 107) with one home run in the 29 games immediately before it.

Manager John Farrell chooses to focus on the mechanical difference he sees from Bogaerts when the rookie is, in his own mind, well rested.

"Since coming back from the concussion he's been more balanced, and what it's allowed him to do is see the ball a little more clearly," said Farrell. "He's not lunging as violently to his front side and he's staying behind some swings. He's been able to carry it now for quite a while."

David Ortiz leaves for family issue
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

Red Sox designated hitter David Ortiz had to leave Sunday's game at Kansas City because of a family emergency, according to the Boston Herald. Ortiz went 0 for 3 with two strikeouts before being replaced by Christian Vazquez.

"He's fine. He got called away from this game," manager John Farrell said. "There was a family emergency that he had to attend to and he jumped on a flight late this afternoon."

Farrell added that Ortiz should rejoin the team for its three-game series at Pittsburgh.

Joe Kelly overcomes early struggles
by Al Melchior | Data Analyst

Joe Kelly put the Red Sox in an early hole against the Royals, giving up four runs -- including a three-run home run by Eric Hosmer -- in the second inning of Sunday's contest. However, he rebounded with four scoreless frames, and he was credited with the win in the Red Sox's 8-4 victory.

Over six innings, Kelly allowed four earned runs on five hits and two walks, while striking out three batters. The win raised Kelly's record to 4-4, though his ERA rose to 4.28. His next scheduled start is next Sunday at the Orioles.

Brock Holt out indefinitely
by Al Melchior | Data Analyst

The Boston Globe reports that Brock Holt (concussion) will sit out Sunday's game at the Royals, and is due to see a concussion specialist later this week. Holt has been out for the Red Sox since Sept. 5, and though he wasn't diagnosed with a concussion until Thursday, he sustained it during a game against the Blue Jays back on Aug. 25.

There is currently no timetable for Holt's return, though he hopes to play again before the end of the season.

Vance Worley loses his rotation spot
by Al Melchior | Data Analyst

According to MLB.com, Vance Worley has been moved to the bullpen and will not make his previously scheduled start on Tuesday against the Red Sox. Worley will make way for Charlie Morton (sports hernia), who will be activated from the 15-day disabled list in order to start Tuesday's contest.

Worley is 7-4 with a 3.18 ERA in 16 appearances (15 starts) this season.
