    • Red Sox's Xander Bogaerts: Four hits Friday
      By RotoWire Staff

      Bogaerts went 4-for-7 with a walk, a hit-by-pitch, two RBI and two runs scored in Friday's 13-6 extra-inning win over the Rays. Bogaerts delivered a ninth-inning single to complete a three-run ninth inning, extending the game into extra frames. He appears to be breaking out of the long, extended slump that began in July when he was hit by a pitch on the hand. Over the last six games, he's 10-for-24 with three RBI and eight runs scored. He's also been hit by pitches the last two games, which comes at a time when he's getting over the original hand injury.

    • Red Sox's Xander Bogaerts: Starting Sunday
      By RotoWire Staff

      Bogaerts will start at shortstop in Sunday's series finale against the Rays, Pete Abraham of The Boston Globe reports. Bogaerts had been given the day off Saturday while Eduardo Nunez started at short, but he was forced to enter the game when Nunez left with a knee injury.

    • Bogaerts is not in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Rays, Tim Britton of The Providence Journal reports. Bogaerts has struggled at the plate recently, going just 4-for-40 over his last 10 starts, so he'll get the day off to clear his head as Eduardo Nunez starts in his place at shortstop. With Bogaerts, Nunez, Rafael Devers, and Dustin Pedroia all vying for time around Boston's infield, manager John Farrell may choose to ride whoever is hot down the stretch.

    • Bogaerts is in the lineup Friday, manning shortstop and batting sixth against the Rays. This will be Bogaerts' fourth straight start. He rode the pine all of last weekend, with manager John Farrell acknowledging that the decision to sit Bogaerts was in part due to the 24-year-old's prolonged struggles at the dish (in addition to a couple minor injuries). Bogaerts has hit .198/.276/.299 since he was plunked on the hand by a pitch back on July 6, and he's just 2-for-13 since returning from his three-game breather.

    • Red Sox's Xander Bogaerts: May return Monday
      By RotoWire Staff

      Bogaerts, who has sat out the last three games, could return to the lineup Monday against Toronto, according to manager John Farrell, Chad Jennings of the Boston Herald reports. Farrell mentioned Bogaerts being "banged up" and cited a litany of minor ailments while also acknowledging the three-game break was about giving him a break after a two-month slump -- a downturn that can be traced back to when he was hit by a pitch on the hand July 6. Monday is a good spot for Bogaerts, as the Red Sox will be facing a left-hander (J.A. Happ) in the series opener against the Blue Jays. He has an .820 career OPS against southpaws.
