Xander Bogaerts went 0-for-4 in Saturday's loss to the Indians.
Bogaerts shouldn't feel too badly here--as a team, the Red Sox managed just three hits against Indians ace Corey Kluber. Heading into the final game of the season, the 23-year-old shortstop is hitting .320/.355/.420 with seven homers, 81 RBI and 10 steals. The average number is obviously nice, though the others are slightly less impressive. We'll see if he can further develop his power next season. Sat, Oct 3, 2015 11:01:00 PM
