Boston Red Sox shortstop Xander Bogaerts (COVID) was officially placed on the COVID-19 injured list on Wednesday.

Thu Aug 1910:39Xander Bogaerts Hits 19th Homer
Boston Red Sox shortstop Xander Bogaerts hit his 19th home run of the season Wednesday night, and opposite-field fly ball that may have benefited from the short right-field porch in Yankee Stadium. It was his only hit in three at-bats, and he also added a walk. The home run came off starter Andrew Heaney. After a slower July, Bogaerts is slashing .293/.391/.500 in August with three homers, 12 RBI, and 12 runs scored. He's a must in fantasy lineups, even with the Red Sox offense scuffling a bit.

Sun Aug 1501:50Xander Bogaerts Reaches All Four Times Saturday
Boston Red Sox shortstop Xander Bogaerts reached in all four plate appearances Saturday, going 3-for-3 with a double and a hit-by-pitch. He drove in two runs and scored two more. Bogaerts has been showing signs at the plate of late, with a .393/.452/.679 slash line in 28 at-bats over the last week. After getting hit on the hand, it would not be surprising to see Boagerts get a day off Sunday, but it did not appear to be serious. With the Boston offense picking up on the whole, Bogaerts is in position to continue delivering first-round production for the rest of the year.

Sat Aug 1412:01Xander Bogaerts Hits Solo Homer Friday
Boston Red Sox shortstop Xander Bogaerts managed just one hit on Friday against the Baltimore Orioles, but he made it count with a solo home run, his 18th of the season.

It's a good sign for fantasy managers that Bogaerts is driving the ball again after only two home runs in his previous 23 games.

Boston Red Sox shortstop Xander Bogaerts went 2-for-5 against the Toronto Blue Jays Sunday with two runs scored. Bogaerts has just six hits in 27 at-bats in August, and he's struggled to a .241/.320/.380 with three home runs in his last 30 games and 120 plate appearances.

Sat Jul 3123:55Xander Bogaerts Homers, Reaches Three Times Saturday
Boston Red Sox shortstop Xander Bogaerts went 1-for-2 with a two-run home run and two walks against the Tampa Bay Rays Saturday. The homer was his 16th of the year, and was his first since July 11. It's also only his third since June 15, when his power production began to slow. Despite not living up to early-season heights, he still is a tip-top fantasy asset with an .896 OPS, 55 RBI, 62 runs, and five steals on the season. He's bound to be selected in the first two rounds of 2022 fantasy drafts.

Boston Red Sox shortstop Xander Bogaerts scored two of Boston's three runs against the Tampa Bay Rays Friday, going 2-for-5 with two singles. Bogaerts has not enjoyed a very strong July, slashing just .227/.294/.373 with two home runs in 75 at-bats. His OPS has slipped to .884, the lowest it's been since April 13. In fact, the whole offense has sputtered of late, but fantasy managers should have confidence that Bogaerts is in excellent position to bounce back, and he remains a top option.

Wed Jul 2813:12Xander Bogaerts Sitting Out Game 1 Of Doubleheader
Boston Red Sox shortstop Xander Bogaerts (wrist) is not in the starting lineup for Game 1 of Wednesday's doubleheader with the Blue Jays. Bogaerts was held out of Monday's lineup with a wrist issue, and was not in the lineup Tuesday prior to the postponement of that game. Manager Alex Cora said on Tuesday that the injury was nothing serious and that he expected Bogaerts to return to the lineup on Wednesday. It's possible that Bogaerts will get the start in Game 2 of this doubleheader, but managers should keep an eye out for further updates on his condition. In the meantime, Kike Hernandez is getting the start at shortstop again and will lead off against Toronto.

Sun Jul 2522:53Red Sox score 5 runs in 8th inning, rally past Yankees 5-4
BOSTON (AP) — Held hitless into the eighth inning by Domingo Germán and looking feeble, Alex Verdugo and the Boston Red Sox suddenly erupted for five runs and stormed past the New York Yankees 5-4 Sunday. Verdugo opened the eighth with a long double for Boston’s first hit. Later, Kiké Hernández slid home headfirst on Xander Bogaerts’ sacrifice fly with the go-ahead run to cap the rally. The Red Sox won for the 10th time in 13 games against the Yankees and reclaimed first place in the AL East, a game ahead of Tampa Bay. New York fell nine games behind Boston. Boston trailed 4-0 when Verdugo doubled to deep right, and Germán was lifted after the hit. Jonathan Loaisiga (7-4) relieved, and Boston broke loose with four straight hits. Hunter Renfroe had an RBI double, Christian Vázquez singled home a run and Hernández followed with an RBI double, cutting it to 4-3. Zack Britton relieved and pinch-hitter Kevin Plawecki’s groundout plated the tying run. Hernández hustled hard an... [More]

CLEVELAND (AP) — Austin Meadows hit an RBI single in the 10th inning to cap Tampa Bay’s comeback in a 5-4 win over the Cleveland Indians on Thursday night, hours after the Rays acquired slugger Nelson Cruz from Minnesota.
