    • Bogaerts said he feels OK following his collision with Byron Buxton (face) Friday, Jason Mastrodonato of the Boston Herald reports. According to Alex Speier of The Boston Globe, Bogaerts said the brim of Buxton's helmet banged against his collar bone. The shortstop added that he felt some stiffness afterwards, but the trainer checked him out and said he was fine. Bogaerts stayed in for two at-bats following the collision, finishing the day 2-for-3 with an RBI and a run scored. It doesn't sound like the issue is anything to worry about, though the Red Sox may play it safe and give him a day off with Opening Day less than a week away.

    • Bogaerts went 1-for-2 with a solo home run in Saturday's game against the Orioles. Bogaerts smacked his first homer of the spring while hitting fifth in the order. He mostly hit out of the five hole last season, when the shortstop launched a career-high 23 long balls and drove in 103 runs. It was a season in which Bogaerts' batted-ball profile improved dramatically. He barreled up 9.8 percent of his batted balls, up from 1.3 the previous season, and increased his hard-hit rate from 31.7 percent to 41.5.

    • Bogaerts signed a one-year, $12.0 million contract with the Red Sox on Friday, avoiding arbitration, Alex Speier of The Boston Globe reports. Bogaerts saw a substantial raise from his $7.05 million salary a season ago, and he earned it by more than doubling his home-run total (10 to 23) and driving in 103 RBI over 136 ballgames. He'll undoubtedly begin the 2019 campaign as the starting shortstop for the defending World Series champions after turning in stellar numbers a year ago.

      By RotoWire Staff

      Bogaerts went 2-for-3 with a two-run home run and a double in Sunday's 10-2 win over the Yankees. Bogaerts was on the bench two of the last four games as the Red Sox geared up for the playoffs, but he continued his hot September nonetheless. The 25-year-old finishes the regular season with a .288/.360/.522 slash line with 23 home runs and 103 RBI in 513 at-bats.
