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

Advice: 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.

Advice: 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.

An MRI on Xander Bogaerts' right knee came back negative.

Advice: He could return to the lineup as soon as Wednesday. It's obviously great news for the Red Sox and Bogaerts' fantasy owners, as the shortstop has been scorching hot at the plate. He had injured his knee while rounding third base during Monday's game.

Xander Bogaerts was sent for an MRI on his right knee.

Advice: Bogaerts is off to a red-hot start at the plate, so this is unfortunate to hear. The Red Sox should have an update on his status soon. Brock Holt will start in his place at shortstop Tuesday night against the Nationals.

Xander Bogaerts had four hits -- all of them coming in extras -- and scored the go-ahead run in the 19th as the Red Sox edged the Yankees 6-5 on Friday.

Advice: The game took six hours and 49 minutes -- not including a 16-minute delay after the lights went out behind home plate -- making it the longest contest in Red Sox history and second longest for the Yankees. By inning, it was the longest game the teams had played since 1967. The Red Sox blew one-run leads in the ninth, 16th and 18th innings before finally prevailing. It was a Mookie Betts sac fly that scored Bogaerts in the 19th. Steven Wright, already having blown two leads, allowed a leadoff single in the bottom of the 19th, but he got a flyout and a double play to end it.

Xander Bogaerts went 3-for-4 with a bases-loaded triple and a walk as the Red Sox topped the Phillies 6-2 on Thursday.

Advice: The triple was a flare down the right-field line that Jeff Francoeur couldn't run down. Except for a couple of impressive shots early in the spring, Bogaerts really hasn't been hitting the ball hard, which is why the Red Sox had him batting eighth behind Ryan Hanigan the last couple of days. The talent is still there, though, and even if it doesn't fully materialize, playing for the Red Sox should ensure that he posts solid run and RBI numbers.
