Red Sox's Xander Bogaerts: Back at shortstop
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bogaerts (ankle) will start at shortstop and bat third Thursday in the Red Sox's Grapefruit League game against the Astros, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports.

Boston initially planned to have Bogaerts serve as its designated hitter for the second day in a row, but the team changed course and cleared the 27-year-old to make his first start in the field of 2020. Now that Bogaerts is back to manning his normal position, his sore left ankle doesn't look to be anything that will impact him heading into Opening Day.

Red Sox's Xander Bogaerts: Serves as DH
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bogaerts made his spring debut Wednesday, going 0-for-2 while serving as the designated hitter in a game against the Tigers.

Bogaerts had been dealing with a sore ankle early in camp, prompting the Red Sox to bring him along slowly. There's still plenty of time for Bogaerts to get plate appearances in preparation for the regular season.

Red Sox's Xander Bogaerts: Making spring debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bogaerts (ankle) will make his spring debut Wednesday, Julian McWilliams of The Boston Globe reports.

Bogaerts has been brought along slowly this spring after reporting to camp with a sore ankle, but he is finally ready to play, and will serve as Boston's DH on Wednesday. With three weeks until regular-season games begin, he should have plenty of time to tune up his swing before Opening Day.

Red Sox's Xander Bogaerts: Not concerned about injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bogaerts (ankle) hit in the batting cage Tuesday and said afterward that he feels "pretty close to 100 percent" and anticipates playing in spring training games later this week, Alex Speier of The Boston Globe reports.

Bogaerts' comments about his sore left ankle seemingly run counter to what interim manager Ron Roenicke said about the matter Sunday, when he indicated the shortstop was "still a ways away" from playing in spring games. That said, Roenicke indicated that he didn't feel Bogaerts was in any real danger of missing Opening Day, a sentiment that both player and manager align on. At this point, the 27-year-old probably shouldn't be downgraded much -- if at all -- in fantasy drafts, as he'll probably only need to play in a handful of games this spring to guarantee his availability for the season opener.

Red Sox's Xander Bogaerts: Not near game action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Interim manager Ron Roenicke said Sunday that Bogaerts (ankle) is "still a ways away" from playing in games, Alex Speier of The Boston Globe reports.

Roenicke reiterated that he still believes his shortstop has enough time to be ready for Opening Day, but Bogaerts' status will remain in limbo until he's cleared for game action. The 27-year-old had the ankle soreness crop up early in camp and has been able to hit in the cage, take batting practice and field grounders.

Red Sox's Xander Bogaerts: Not yet ready for game action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bogaerts (ankle) hit in the cage Friday but remains a few days from getting into a game, Julian McWilliams of The Boston Globe reports.

Bogaerts has been dealing with a sore ankle since early in camp. The issue doesn't appear to be a major worry, and he still has time to get built up for Opening Day, though it would certainly be reassuring to see him looking like himself in a Grapefruit League game soon.

Red Sox's Xander Bogaerts: Works out again Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Interim manager Ron Roenicke said Bogaerts (ankle) would hit and field grounders Tuesday, Alex Speier of The Boston Globe reports.

Bogaerts' ability to put in a workout for the second consecutive day offers further evidence that his sore left ankle isn't a major concern. The 27-year-old could be ready to make his Grapefruit League debut within the next few days.

Red Sox's Xander Bogaerts: Takes BP
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bogaerts (ankle) took batting practice on the field Monday, Julian McWilliams of The Boston Globe reports.

Bogaerts won't be available for either of the Red Sox's split-squad games Monday, but his presence on the field at least represents a sign that he's beginning to move past a sore left ankle. He'll likely accelerate his activities over the next few days and could be a candidate to make his Grapefruit League debut later this week.

Red Sox's Xander Bogaerts: Nursing sore ankle
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bogaerts will be limited for the next few days due to a sore ankle, Jen McCaffrey of The Athletic reports.

The 27-year-old will get a slightly late start to spring training due to the ankle issue, but it's not expected to be a long-term concern. Bogaerts should return to action sometime this week and could be available for the beginning of Grapefruit League games Saturday.

Red Sox's Xander Bogaerts: Three hits in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bogaerts went 3-for-4 with a walk and a two-run homer in Saturday's loss to the Orioles.

Bogaerts hit a two-run shot in the first inning off of John Means, but the Red Sox would score just two more runs the rest of the way and fall 9-4. The homer gives Bogaerts 33 on the season, 10 more than his previous career high of 23 and tied with Marcus Semien for fourth place among all shortstops. The pair trails only Alex Bregman, Gleyber Torres and Trevor Story on that list. Bogaerts' .309 batting average is better than every other qualified shortstop who hit at least 20 homers.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bogaerts went 2-for-4 with a double and an RBI in Friday's loss to Baltimore.

Bogaerts prevented a shutout by delivering an RBI single to center in the bottom of the ninth inning, but the Red Sox would fall 4-1. With only two games remaining in the regular season, the 26-year-old is hitting .306 with 32 homers and 114 RBI.

This is his second day off this week as the Red Sox look to spread around the playing time down the stretch. Bogaerts is hitting .284/.341/.407 with two home runs and zero steals in 21 games this month. Chris Owings is starting at shortstop and hitting ninth.

Red Sox's Xander Bogaerts: Gets day off
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bogaerts is not in the lineup Monday against the Rays, Steve Hewitt of the Boston Herald reports.

Bogaerts will head to the bench for what appears to be a routine day off following a string of 10 consecutive starts. Through 18 games this month, the shortstop is slashing .274/.338/.411 with two home runs and four doubles. Chris Owings is starting at shortstop in place of Bogaerts in this one.

Red Sox's Xander Bogaerts: Joins exclusive club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bogaerts went 2-for-5 with a double, an RBI and a run scored in Thursday's 7-4 win over the Blue Jays.

The double was Bogaerts' 50th, which grants him membership to an exclusive club. He becomes only the second shortstop in MLB history, along with Alex Rodriguez, to reach 30 home runs and 50 doubles in a single season. David Ortiz is the only other hitter in Red Sox history to achieve that feat.

Red Sox's Xander Bogaerts: Gets rare day off
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bogaerts isn't in the starting lineup for Tuesday's game against the Blue Jays, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports.

Bogaerts has been scuffling at the dish lately, finishing Boston's four-game series with New York just 2-for-16 with four strikeouts. Chris Owings starts at second base and will bat eighth Tuesday.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bogaerts went 3-for-4 with a home run, a double and three RBI in Sunday's 4-3 win over the Angels.

Bogaerts knocked an RBI single in the first inning before launching a two-run shot in the third for his 31st long ball of 2019. It was his third multi-hit performance in his last five games. The MVP candidate now owns a .312/.388/.580 slash line with 103 RBI.

Red Sox's Xander Bogaerts: Homers twice, reaches four times
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bogaerts went 3-for-4 with two home runs, a double, three RBI, a walk and another run scored in Wednesday's win over the Rockies.

Continuing his breakout campaign, Bogaerts cranked a pair of home runs to tally a career-high 30 homers and reach the 100-RBI plateau for the second straight season. Bogaerts becomes Boston's first shortstop since Nomar Garciaparra in 1998-99 to achieve the 30-100 mark. The round trippers, which were Bogaerts' second and third across the last two games, included a two-run blast off Peter Lambert in the fifth inning followed by a solo shot off Carlos Estevez in the seventh. Meanwhile, it was the seventh career multi-homer game for the 26-year-old, who is slashing .311/.389/.577 with 46 doubles on the campaign.
