  • Red Sox's Xander Bogaerts: Racks up four hits

    Bogaerts went 4-for-5 with an RBI and a run scored in Fridays' 7-4 win over the Royals.

    All four of Bogaerts' hits were singles. He scored in the fourth inning and drove in a run in the fifth to help build Boston's lead. The shortstop has just three multi-hit efforts in his last 13 games, but he's batting .327 (16-for-49) in that span. For the season, he's up to a .315/.388/.459 slash line with nine home runs, 47 RBI, 59 runs scored and seven stolen bases through 103 contests.

The shortstop is already halfway to his home run total for July. Bogaerts is slashing an impressive .312/.387/.460 after Wednesday's performance, although he is trending toward his lowest home run total in a full season since he hit 10 in 2017.

  • Red Sox's Xander Bogaerts: Three hits, RBI in loss

    Bogaerts went 3-for-4 with two doubles, an RBI and a run scored in Tuesday's 10-3 loss to the Guardians.

    Bogaerts doubled in the bottom of the first inning before ripping an RBI single off Bryan Shaw in the third frame. He later added a second two-bagger and came around to score in the eighth. The shortstop has now produced seven multi-hit contests over his last 14 games, raising his average from .306 to .317.

The shortstop gave his fantasy managers another reason to be happy by swiping his fifth bag of the season. Bogaerts' power has waned of late -- he has only one long ball in his past 34 games -- but he's otherwise hit well with a .314/.391/.454 slash line over 361 plate appearances.

    Bogaerts went 2-for-3 with a walk, a double, a run scored, an RBI and a stolen base in Monday's 10-5 loss to the Rays.

    The shortstop did a little bit of everything, and his RBI single in the fifth inning tied the game at 5-5 before the Boston bullpen fell apart. Bogaerts has multiple hits in three straight games to snap a slump that had seen him hit just .158 (9-for-57) over his prior 16 contests, and on the season he's slashing .315/.393/.455 with seven homers, four steals, 36 RBI and 51 runs through 83 games.

    Bogaerts went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run, a sacrifice fly and a walk in an 8-4 loss to the Rays on Tuesday.

    Boegarts continued his strong campaign by picking up his seventh home run of the year to go along with an impressive .318 average and .391 OBP in 286 at-bats. Although Boegarts' power isn't his standout feature, he likes to drive the ball at Fenway and is slugging .538 at home this year. The everyday shortstop has been a consistent hitter throughout his career and is living up to his established standards in 2022.

  • Red Sox's Xander Bogaerts: Checks back into lineup Tuesday

    Bogaerts (thigh) will start at shortstop and bat cleanup in Tuesday's game against the Rays, Pete Abraham of The Boston Globe reports.

    After suffering a laceration on his left thigh in Sunday's 4-2 win over the Cubs that required seven stitches to seal, Bogaerts sat out the Red Sox's 4-0 victory over the Rays in Monday's series opener. The day off looks as though it provided sufficient recovery time for Bogaerts, who should be good to go for the Red Sox's remaining six games this week. Over his last 10 games, the 29-year-old has gone 8-for-36 (.222 average) with seven walks, six runs and no RBI.

Bogaerts is 17-for-43 (.395) this month, and he's added a home run, six doubles, eight RBI and nine runs. It's nothing new for the 29-year-old, who owns a .335/.401/.498 slash line, six homers, 30 RBI, 39 runs scored, three stolen bases and 19 doubles through 61 contests this season. He's settled in to the cleanup spot nicely for the Red Sox for much of the last month.

    Bogaerts remained in the lineup Wednesday after exiting Tuesday's game with right shoulder tightness, but he'll be on the bench for Thursday's series finale against the Angels.
