Player Notes
Xander Bogaerts is back in Wednesday's lineup against the Rays.

Advice: Bogaerts was given the day off Tuesday, but he's right back in there for Wednesday's game. The 23-year-old shortstop is batting .343/.395/.494 with nine homers, 50 RBI, and 10 steals over 75 games this season.

Red Sox manager John Farrell said during a radio appearance on WEEI that Xander Bogaerts will get the day off off Tuesday versus the Rays.

Advice: Farrell has talked about giving Bogaerts a day off, so he's going to get it out of the way. Marco Hernandez is expected to start at shortstop.

Xander Bogaerts is in the Red Sox's starting lineup Monday against the Rays.

Advice: Manager John Farrell hinted that Bogaerts would get the night off after making his third error in four games Sunday against Texas. The Red Sox even called up infielder Mike Miller from Triple-A Pawtucket to spell Bogaerts at shortstop but here he is, starting for the 59th game in a row. Bogaerts will bat in his usual third spot against Rays left-hander Blake Snell.

Red Sox manager John Farrell says Xander Bogaerts is tired and "needs a day."

Advice: Bogaerts' bat hasn't slowed down yet—his batting average is second in the American League behind Jose Altuve—but his defense has deteriorated over the past week with three errors in his last four games. Xander hasn't sat since April 23 and is due for a breather. Sitting Wednesday against the Rays is the most likely scenario with the Red Sox off on Thursday. That would give Xander a couple days to catch his breath.

Xander Bogaerts singled in Mookie Betts in the bottom of the 10th to give the Red Sox an 8-7 win over the White Sox on Thursday.

Advice: It was Bogaerts' second hit of the game, and it made a winner out of Craig Kimbrel, who came up big for a Red Sox team that badly needed it today. With the win, the Red Sox avoided what would have been the White Sox's first four-game sweep at Fenway since 1927.

Xander Bogaerts went 3-for-5 with a double and three RBI against the White Sox on Wednesday.

Advice: The double might have been a homer, but a fan interfered with it from atop the Green Monster and it was ruled a double after replays were inconclusive. Bogaerts is having such a strong season that a three-hit game merely raises his average from .347 to .351. He's collected 104 hits, seven more than anyone else in either league.
