Xander Bogaerts went 2-for-3 with a double, a stolen base, and scored the game's only run in Tuesday's win against the Twins.

Bogaerts doubled with two outs in the bottom of the seventh inning and came around to score on a Rusney Castillo single. It was the only run either side would score on the evening. Bogaerts is now carrying a league-average-ish .281/.328/.389 triple-slash line with two home runs, 17 RBI, 20 runs scored, and three stolen bases.

Xander Bogaerts is getting Saturday off because of soreness in his bruised left forearm.

Bogaerts left Thursday's game after a HBP, and while he played Friday, he obviously was less than 100 percent. Brock Holt will fill in at shortstop tonight.

Red Sox fans and fantasy owners can breathe a sigh of relief that there's no serious damage. The young shortstop should return to the lineup in a day or two.
May 28 - 9:41 PM

Xander Bogaerts was removed from Thursday's game against the Rangers after being hit by a pitch in his left wrist.

He remained in the game for a few innings after he was drilled, but was pinch-hit for his next time through the order. He'll presumably head for precautionary X-rays and the Red Sox should have an update on his status after the game.
May 28 - 9:28 PM

Xander Bogaerts hit just his second homer of the year Wednesday against the Rangers.

Bogaerts has essentially been a league average offensive shortstop with his .260 average, two homers and 10 walks in 131 at-bats, but that's because the shortstops as a whole have been pretty awful this season. He's been pretty solid defensively, too; while his range isn't the greatest, miscues have been few and far between. Of course, the hope was that Bogaerts would be a whole lot better than average. He still might be, but nothing so far suggests he's on the verge of breaking out.

Xander Bogaerts is not in the Red Sox' lineup.

It's just a day off for Bogaerts, who has struggled with a .211/.250/.316 batting line this month. Brock Holt is at shortstop Wednesday.
May 13 - 12:44 PM

Xander Bogaerts went 1-for-3 with an RBI triple, but the Red Sox lost 5-1 to the Rays on Monday.

Bogaerts' second-inning RBI triple off of Jake Odorizzi ended up being the only offense the Red Sox would generate on the evening. The shortstop hasn't done much at the dish as he's still looking for his first multi-hit game since April 17. Bogaerts is batting .264/.326/.368 with one home run and 11 RBI in 95 plate appearances.
May 4 - 11:00 PM

Xander Bogaerts is not in Tuesday's lineup against the Rays.

He'll get a breather with right-hander Chris Archer on the hill for Tampa Bay. Brock Holt will make the start at shortstop for Boston as he continues to bounce all around the field for Boston in the early going.
Apr 21 - 3:11 PM

Xander Bogaerts went 2-for-4 with a walk-off RBI single in a 3-2 win over the Orioles on Friday night.

Mike Napoli led off the bottom of the ninth inning with a walk against Brian Matusz before Daniel Nava sacrificed him over to second and Bogaerts cashed him in with a bloop single to right field. It was his first career walk-off hit. Bogaerts, who also had a run scored on the night, now owns a healthy .395/.452/.474 batting line through nine games this season. The Red Sox are 7-3 on the year.

Xander Bogaerts (knee) is back in the Red Sox' lineup Wednesday.

Bogaerts needed an MRI after tweaking his knee while rounding third base during Monday's game, but the test came back clean and he wound up missing just one game. The young infielder sports a nifty .433/.500/.533 batting line in the early going this season.
