Cold7/3/2014 12:44:00 PM
Description: The Red Sox are not considering a demotion for third baseman Xander Bogaerts, according to the Boston Herald. "Oh, we haven’t even considered that," manager John Farrell said Wednesday.
Insight: Bogaerts has zero hits in his last 21 at-bats, two in his last 46 (.043) and six in his last 77 (.078). He was hitting .299 with an .840 OPS on June 7, but he's down to .242 with a .688 OPS after going 0-for-4 with two strikeouts Wednesday night.
Cold6/29/2014 4:22:00 PM
Description: Boston third baseman Xander Bogaerts is not in the lineup Sunday against the Yankees.

Cold6/12/2014 6:33:00 PM
Description: Boston third baseman Xander Bogaerts has cooled off recently and will get a day off Thursday against Cleveland.
Insight: Bogaerts (.278, 5 HR, 17 RBI) is hitless in his last 16 at bats. Leadoff hitter Brock Holt (.331, 1 HR, 13 RBI) will grab the start at third base.
Hot6/3/2014 10:23:00 PM
Description: Red Sox third baseman Xander Bogaerts belted his fifth home run of the year Tuesday in a loss to Cleveland.
Insight: He's hitting .467 over his last seven games. Bogaerts (.304, 5 HR, 16 RBI, .395 OBP) has turned himself into a legitimate Rookie of the Year candidate while giving fantasy owners solid production at two positions.
Hot5/29/2014 10:24:00 PM
Description: Boston shortstop Xander Bogaerts slammed three hits in Thursday's win over Atlanta.
Insight: Bogaerts (.296, 3 HR, 12 RBI) plated a run with his single to right field in the eighth inning. The rookie has hit .313 in the month of May with two homers and seven runs batted in. His .388 on base percentage this season ranks sixth in the American League.
5/28/2014 10:34:00 PM
Description: Red Sox SS Xander Bogaerts used a three-hit game Wednesday to raise his average to .287.
Insight: He started the day at .277. Boston has followed up its ten-game losing streak by winning three straight against Atlanta. Bogaerts' .383 on base percentage is second on the team behind Mike Napoli.

Description: Red Sox shortstop Xander Bogaerts has returned to the starting lineup after exiting Saturday's game with a hamstring cramp. SOURCE: Darren Hartwell, NESN
Insight: Bogaerts certainly isn't a power hitter (three homers in 165 at bats) but he does get on base a lot (.370 OBP). Maybe he can help Boston snap its nine-game losing streak on Sunday.
5/24/2014 8:04:00 PM
Description: Boston shortstop Xander Bogaerts exited Saturday's game with a hamstring cramp. SOURCE: Don Orsillo, NESN
Insight: He'll finish the night with two hits in five at bats. Jonathan Herrera (.184, 0 HR, 4 RBI) has come on to take his place at shortstop.
5/20/2014 3:08:00 PM
Description: Red Sox shortstop Xander Bogaerts will start at shortstop on Tuesday night, but that might be the last time for a while as Boston just signed Stephen Drew.
Insight: Bogaerts will move to third base for the injured Will Middlebrooks. He's hitting .269 with a pair of homers, seven RBI, 17 runs and one steal. We were expecting more from last season's USA Today Minor League Player of the Year.
5/7/2014 3:11:00 PM
Description: Red Sox shortstop Xander Bogaerts will get a night off Wednesday against the Reds, according to Scott Lauber of the Boston Herald.
Insight: Bogaerts hasn't made a big impact in fantasy leagues so far. He's hitting .280 with one homer, five RBI, 13 runs and one steal. He does have a .394 OBP, however.
4/26/2014 10:45:00 AM
Description: Red Sox shortstop Xander Bogaerts is not in Saturday's starting lineup.
Insight: Bogaerts is off to a solid start, batting .277 with 10 runs scored. Jonathan Herrera will get a start, but he hasn't shown that he's worthy of attention from fantasy owners.
10/23/2013 4:23:00 PM
Description: Rookie Xander Bogaerts will make another start at third base for the Red Sox in Game 1 of the World Series.
Insight: Bogaerts (3-for-6, seven runs in six playoff games) appears to be locked in as Boston's third baseman for the rest of the postseason. Will Middlebrooks will probably be limited to pinch-hitting duty.
10/19/2013 9:58:00 AM
Description: The Red Sox are expected to start Xander Bogaerts at third base again in Game 6. SOURCE: Erik Boland, Newsday
Insight: The rookie went 1-for-3 with a double and a walk Thursday in Game 5. He's been filling in for Will Middlebrooks, who has struggled offensively during the playoffs (.174 AVG in 23 at bats). Since shortstop is Bogaerts' natural position, Middlebrooks will probably come in as a defensive replacement if the Red Sox have a lead in the ninth inning.
10/17/2013 6:07:00 PM
Description: Boston's Xander Bogaerts will make his first start of the postseason Thursday against Detroit.
Insight: Bogaerts is in for third baseman Will Middlebrooks, who is just 1-for-10 in the series. The 21-year-old Bogaerts went 1-for-2 in last night's loss and has hit .261 since joining the Red Sox in mid-August.
9/7/2013 8:15:00 PM
Description: Red Sox shortstop Xander Bogaerts hit his first career home run Saturday against the Yankees.
Insight: Bogaerts went 2-for-4 with a double, a homer and three RBI in the game and is 8-for-24 (.333) in part-time duty since making his major league debut. The top prospect has limited fantasy value while he's serving as a backup infielder.
8/19/2013 8:12:00 PM
Description: Boston infielder Xander Bogaerts is not in the starting lineup Monday against the Giants.
Insight: Bogaerts was called up from Triple-A Pawtucket earlier in the day. Manager John Farrell said it's unlikely that Bogaerts will be an everyday player for the Sox. Instead, he'll play shortstop against lefties while getting the occasional start at third base. With Stephen Drew about to become a free agent, Bogaerts should be Boston's starting shortstop in 2014.
8/19/2013 7:15:00 PM
Description: The Red Sox have promoted infielder Xander Bogaerts to the major leagues.
Insight: Brock Holt will head down to Triple-A. Bogaerts, rated by ESPN's Jim Callis as the No. 1 prospect in baseball, hit .284 with nine homers during his 60-game stint with Triple-A Pawtucket.
7/29/2013 4:37:00 PM
Description: Boston's top prospect Xander Bogaerts will make his fifth start of the season at third base Monday with Triple-A Pawtucket, according to Pawtucket Red Sox broadcaster Jeff Levering.
Insight: It is unclear if the Red Sox have any plans to promote the 20-year-old shortstop to play third base down the stretch, but it appears they are keeping their options open. Bogaerts, who is ranked No. 6 on the latest list of's top-100 prospects, is hitting .296 with 14 home runs, an .887 OPS and an 80/58 K/BB in 96 games in the minors this season.
