  • Red Sox's Xander Bogaerts: Receiving Thursday off

    Manager Alex Cora said Bogaerts will have a rest day in the series finale against the Blue Jays on Thursday, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports. The shortstop went 4-for-4 with a walk, two runs and an RBI during Wednesday's 7-1 win over Toronto.

    It's a well deserved off day for Bogaerts, as Wednesday's four-hit performance is already the seventh time this season he's tallied at least three hits. He has a .397/.421/.534 slash line with one home run, eight RBI, 12 runs and one stolen base through 17 games in 2022. Trevor Story and Christian Arroyo are likely to man the middle infield Thursday for Boston.

    Bogaerts went 3-for-5 with a double, two runs scored, an RBI and a stolen base in Tuesday's 6-5 extra-inning loss to the Blue Jays.

    The shortstop continues to tear the cover off the ball, as Bogaerts has five three-hit performances in the last 10 contests. The hot streak has pushed his slash line on the season to .362/.380/.507, but he doesn't yet have the counting stats to match with one homer, one steal, seven RBI and 10 runs through 17 games.

  • Red Sox's Xander Bogaerts: Tries to spark comeback in loss

    Bogaerts went 3-for-4 with an RBI double in Thursday's 3-2 loss to the Blue Jays.

    After singling in his previous two at-bats, Bogaerts came to the plate in the bottom of the ninth with runners on first and second and ripped an RBI double down the left-field line. Blue Jays closer Jordan Romano was able to get the next hitter -- Alex Verdugo -- to ground out to the left side, which scored another run and moved Bogaerts to third. However, Bogaerts was stranded to end the game as Romano retired the next two batters via ground balls. Thursday's performance was Bogaerts' fourth three-hit game of the season and his fourth multi-hit game over his last five starts.

  • Red Sox's Xander Bogaerts: Socks first homer of 2022

    Bogaerts went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Saturday's 4-0 win over the Twins.

    His third-inning shot off Josh Winder capped the scoring on the day. Bogaerts has had a sluggish start to the season, with Saturday's blast being his first homer to go along with a .222/.276/.370 slash line, but the shortstop's track record indicates he will pick up the pace soon enough.

  • Red Sox's Xander Bogaerts: Chasing pitches

    Bogaerts went 0-for-4 with three strikeouts in Friday's 8-4 loss to the Twins.

    Since going 3-for-5 in the season opener against the Yankees, Bogaerts is 2-for-18 with eight strikeouts. "Right now, he's off balance, chasing pitches," Red Sox manager Alex Cora told Christopher Smith of MassLive.com. "It's one of those, you go through stretches like this during the season and it just happens it's early in the season and it's magnified." Bogaerts suffered a mild hamstring injury during the opener, but Cora indicated that is not an issue and the shortstop is "moving well" at his position.

  • Red Sox's Xander Bogaerts: Out of lineup Wednesday

    Bogaerts is not in the lineup Wednesday against the Tigers.

    Bogaerts will get a day off Wednesday after playing in each of the team's first five games this season, beginning the 2022 campaign with five hits in 19 at-bats while scoring three times and driving in a run. Christian Arroyo will start in his place at shortstop and bat sixth as the Red Sox look to take the rubber match against the Tigers.

  • Red Sox's Xander Bogaerts: In Saturday's lineup

    Bogaerts (hamstring) will bat third and play shortstop Saturday against the Yankees, Christopher Smith of The Springfield Republican reports.

    Bogaerts left Friday's season opener with a hamstring injury but said after the game that he hoped to return without missing any time. That will indeed happen, and the fact that he'll be a full participant in the field rather than merely a designated hitter seemingly indicates good things about his health. He went 3-for-5 with an RBI and a pair of runs scored Friday and will try to keep that momentum going Saturday.

  • Red Sox's Xander Bogaerts: Hopes to return Saturday

    Bogaerts hopes to return to the lineup Saturday against the Yankees after leaving Friday's game with a right hamstring issue, Julian McWilliams of The Boston Globe reports.

    Bogaerts felt the injury while hitting but believes it to be a minor one. While he thinks he can return one day later, the Red Sox could elect to take a more cautious approach. If he's unavailable, Trevor Story would likely slide to shortstop, with Christian Arroyo starting at second base.

  • Red Sox's Xander Bogaerts: Exits with injury

    Bogaerts left Friday's game against the Yankees with an apparent injury, Christopher Smith of The Springfield Republican reports.

    The specifics of Bogaerts' injury are not yet clear, though it may be a hamstring issue, per John Tomase of NBC Sports Boston. Losing Bogaerts for an extended period would be a big blow to Boston's chances in the highly competitive American League East. The team does have another very competent shortstop in Trevor Story, who signed over the offseason, though shifting him over to his natural position would open up a different hole at second base.

  • Red Sox's Xander Bogaerts: Returns to action

    Bogaerts (general soreness) will start at shortstop and bat third in Monday's Grapefruit League game against the Twins, Rob Bradford of WEEI.com reports.

    He'll return to the lineup for the first time in four days after the Red Sox rested him while he dealt with general body soreness. The missed action shouldn't hinder Bogaerts too much from a readiness standpoint ahead of Opening Day; he's already logged 16 at-bats in Grapefruit League play heading into Monday's contest.
