Player Outlook
Xander Bogaerts delivered six homers and a .914 OPS in his first month with the Padres, but the summer months weren't quite so productive. The veteran shortstop also had a 1.122 OPS during the final month of the season, but his .244/.308./358 slash line in between made for an underwhelming debut campaign in San Diego. In total it was a solid overall season with 19 homers, a career-high 19 steals, 83 runs and 58 RBI to go along with a .790 OPS, though that production certainly doesn't live up to the 11-year, $280 million contract he signed last offseason. His hard-hit rate also dropped over five points to 34.3 percent, while a .252 xBA and .395 xSLG indicate he was fortunate to hit .285 and slug .440. Bogaerts has regularly outperformed those expected figures throughout his career and may continue to do so, but less hard contact will make that trend more difficult to maintain. He's likely to be a productive fantasy shortstop again in 2024 and could improve his counting stats if the Padres' lineup gets back on track, but Bogaerts' longer-term outlook is looking a bit less rosy heading into his age-31 campaign.

  • Padres' Xander Bogaerts: Not in Tuesday's lineup

    Bogaerts (shoulder) is absent from the lineup for Tuesday's game in Cincinnati. It's no surprise, of course, after Bogaerts suffered a left shoulder injury in the first game of Monday's doubleheader in Atlanta. Initial testing indicated that Bogaerts avoided a dislocation and might not need a stint on the injured list, but he and the Padres are still awaiting the results of other tests. Luis Arraez will handle second base Tuesday and Donovan Solano will be the designated hitter.

  • Padres' Xander Bogaerts: Initial imaging returns negative

    Bogaerts had preliminary imaging on his left shoulder come back negative Monday, though the Padres are awaiting additional test results, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports. The veteran infielder exited Game 1 of Monday's doubleheader after he suffered the injury while making a diving stop at second base. Bogaerts likely won't be available for Monday's nightcap, but he should be considered day-to-day until more information is available.

  • Padres' Xander Bogaerts: Leaves game with shoulder injury

    Bogaerts was removed from Monday's game in Atlanta with an apparent left shoulder injury, Sammy Levitt of 973 The Fan reports. Bogaerts landed awkwardly while making a diving stop at second base in the third inning and looked to be in considerable pain immediately. He walked off the field under his own power and now could be headed for testing. Bogaerts was retired in his lone plate appearance before departing.

  • Padres' Xander Bogaerts: Swipes two bags Friday

    Bogaerts went 2-for-4 with two stolen bases Friday in a 3-1 win against Atlanta. Bogaerts doubled his season stolen-base total with a swipe of second in both the fifth and eighth innings. Prior to Friday, the second baseman's most recent theft took place April 22. Bogaerts has had a subpar start to the season with a .220/.268/.319 slash line through 194 plate appearances, but he's begun to come on of late, batting .350 with two homers and two RBI during his current five-game hitting streak.

  • Padres' Xander Bogaerts: Homers in consecutive games

    Bogaerts went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Monday's 5-4 loss to the Rockies. Bogaerts has doubled his homer total for the year from two to four by going deep in each of the last two games. Prior to the power uptick, he endured an 0-for-15 slump over four contests. The veteran infielder is still battling inconsistency with a .212/.264/.318 slash line, 13 RBI, 23 runs scored, two stolen bases and six doubles through 182 plate appearances this season. He's never posted an OPS lower than .659 in a full campaign, and there's plenty of time for Bogaerts to turn things around in 2024.

  • Padres' Xander Bogaerts: Gets going with home run

    Bogaerts went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Sundays 4-0 win over the Dodgers. Bogaerts gave the Padres some extra breathing room with a solo shot off Gus Varland in the fifth. The long ball was his first since April 21, his first RBI since April 25 and his first hit in 17 at-bats since May 6. Bogaerts is still searching for a spark offensively this season, as he's slashing just .211/.264/.301 with three homers, 12 RBI, 22 runs and a 12:36 BB:K in 178 plate appearances.

  • Padres' Xander Bogaerts: Gets rare day off

    Bogaerts is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Reds. Bogaerts will hit the bench for just the second time all season in what appears to be a routine maintenance day after he had started each of the past 16 games. Tyler Wade will step in for Bogaerts at second base and will bat ninth.

  • Padres' Xander Bogaerts: Homers in Sunday's win

    Bogaerts went 2-for-4 with a solo home run, a walk and two RBI in Sunday's win over the Blue Jays. Bogaerts took Chris Bassitt deep in the third for his second home run of the year and later worked a bases-loaded walk in the ninth to give the Padres some insurance. Sunday was Bogaerts' first multi-hit effort since April 3, and he's knocked in runs in back-to-back games for the first time since the opening series in Japan. It's been a slow start for the 31-year-old, as he's now slashing .204/.275/.290 with 10 RBI, 15 runs and a 9:18 BB:K in 102 innings.

  • Padres' Xander Bogaerts: Idle Saturday

    Bogaerts isn't in the Padres' lineup for Saturday's game against the Dodgers. Bogaerts has been rather underwhelming to start the season, slashing .219/.275/.297 through 69 plate appearances. He'll get a chance to regroup Saturday while Tyler Wade starts at second base, allowing Eguy Rosario to cover third.

  • Padres' Xander Bogaerts: Swats first homer of 2024

    Bogaerts went 1-for-5 with a two-run home run Monday in a 9-8 victory versus the Cubs. Bogaerts capped a seven-run sixth inning for San Diego with a two-run blast that brought the team to within a run. It was the first homer of the season for the second baseman, and it marked the first time he has knocked in any runs since the team's third game of the campaign. Bogaerts has been quiet to start the season, slashing a modest .250/.304/.327 with 10 runs and six RBI through 52 plate appearances.

  • Padres' Xander Bogaerts: Swipes bag, notches two hits

    Bogaerts went 2-for-4 with a run scored and a stolen base in Wednesday's win over the Cardinals. Bogaerts is looking to work his way out of a bit of a slump, having gone hitless in four of his previous five games entering Wednesday and going 2-for-18 (.111) in that stretch. Even with the mini cold spell, Bogaerts owns a solid .286 average in 2024 after logging two hits in each of his first three games. Bogaerts also got on the board in the steal column Wednesday, lending some hope to the idea that the now-second baseman could repeat his career-high 19 steals from a season ago.

  • Padres' Xander Bogaerts: Moving to second base

    Manager Mike Shildt announced Friday that Bogaerts will move to second base this season while Ha-Seong Kim takes over at shortstop, Dennis Lin of The Athletic reports. Kim is viewed as the superior defender and won a Gold Glove at the keystone last year, and the Padres new skipper didn't waste any time moving to shore up his defense at a premier position. An eventual move off shortstop always seemed inevitable after Bogaerts joined the team on an 11-year, $280-million contract in December of 2022, but it's a bit of a surprise the transition is happening so soon. Bogaerts' fantasy value for 2024 should rise a bit thanks to dual-position eligibility after he posted a .285/.350/.440 slash line with 19 home runs and 19 steals last season.

  • Padres' Xander Bogaerts: Position change possible?

    Padres manager Mike Shildt indicated last week that he could eventually discuss a possible position switch with Bogaerts, Kevin Acee of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports. Shildt said that Bogaerts is projected to play shortstop in 2024 "right now" but added that he will talk with the 31-year-old soon and indicated that an eventual move to the right side of the infield -- presumably second base -- would be discussed. Bogaerts actually graded out well defensively at shortstop for the second year in a row in 2023, but Ha-Seong Kim is viewed as the superior defender there and top shortstop prospect Jackson Merrill could be ready before long.

  • Padres' Xander Bogaerts: Notches 19th steal

    Bogaerts went 1-for-4 with a walk, a stolen base and a run scored in Tuesday's 4-0 win over the Giants. Bogaerts has gone 20-for-49 (.408) with four steals over his last 11 games. The shortstop is at 19 thefts on the year, as well as 19 home runs, putting him just shy of his first 20-20 campaign with four games left on the schedule. He's at a .283/.350/.441 slash line over 151 contests this season.

  • Padres' Xander Bogaerts: Three more hits Wednesday

    Bogaerts went 3-for-4 with a double, a run scored and a stolen base in Wednesday's 3-2 win over the Rockies. After struggling for much of the year, Bogaerts is putting together a massive finish to his first season with the Padres. The shortstop has reeled off six straight multi-hit performances, and through 17 games in September he's batting .471 (32-for-68) with nine doubles, a triple, four homers, five steals, eight RBI and 19 runs. Bogaerts needs just one more home run and two more stolen bases to record his first career 20-20 campaign.

  • Padres' Xander Bogaerts: Delivers walk-off homer

    Bogaerts went 2-for-5 with a two-run home run in Tuesday's 2-0 victory over the Rockies. The game was scoreless heading into the bottom of the ninth; however, Bogaerts stepped up and launched a two-out, two-run home run to plate Trent Grisham and win the ballgame. Bogaerts has collected multiple hits in five consecutive contests, a span in which he's 11-for-23 (.478) with six runs scored and three RBI while striking out at a 12 percent clip.

  • Padres' Xander Bogaerts: Productive in win

    Bogaerts went 3-for-4 with a triple, a double, a walk, a stolen base and three runs scored in Monday's 11-9 win over the Rockies. Bogaerts didn't get a chance to go for the home run he needed for the cycle, but he showed off some impressive speed Monday. He stole home and hit his first triple of the season in the contest, which was his fifth multi-hit effort over his last six games. The shortstop is up to a .279/.348/.433 slash line with 18 home runs, 51 RBI, 75 runs scored, 17 steals and 29 doubles through 144 contests. He hit leadoff Monday with Ha-Seong Kim (abdomen) out of the lineup -- Bogaerts has primarily hit fifth over the last month.

  • Padres' Xander Bogaerts: Records steal in win

    Bogaerts went 2-for-4 with a stolen base in Friday's 8-3 win over the Athletics. Bogaerts is batting .444 (20-for-45) with three steals over 12 contests in September.

  • Padres' Xander Bogaerts: Not in lineup Wednesday

    Bogaerts is absent from the lineup Wednesday versus the Dodgers. Ha-Seong Kim will play shortstop and bat leadoff as Matthew Batten handles second base and hits eighth. This appears to be a routine day off for Bogaerts, who has slashed .439/.489/.805 in 45 plate appearances since the calendar flipped to September.

  • Padres' Xander Bogaerts: Pads lead with homer

    Bogaerts went 3-for-5 with a solo home run, a double and an additional run scored in Monday's 11-8 win over the Dodgers. Bogaerts saw an eight-game hitting streak snapped Sunday, but he was right back at it Monday. His biggest knock was a ninth-inning homer to pad the Padres' lead to 11-7. The shortstop has gone deep three times this month and now has 18 long balls on the year. He's added a .273/.341/.425 slash line with 50 RBI, 70 runs scored, 15 stolen bases and 27 doubles over 139 contests.
