|Xander Bogaerts credits rest for turnaround |
|by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer|
(9/15/14) Red Sox shortstop Xander Bogaerts, who homered again Sunday at Kansas City to give him four home runs along with a .359 (23 for 64) batting average in 16 games since returning from an eight-day absence for a concussion in late August, thinks that break may have contributed to this surge, according to the Boston Herald.
"When I went down for a few days helped me out a lot," he said. "So, I feel good."
Bogaerts suggested he also benefited from the All-Star break, and the numbers back it up. In the 11 games immediately after the break, he hit .317 (13 for 41) with two home runs compared to .103 (11 for 107) with one home run in the 29 games immediately before it.
Manager John Farrell chooses to focus on the mechanical difference he sees from Bogaerts when the rookie is, in his own mind, well rested.
"Since coming back from the concussion he's been more balanced, and what it's allowed him to do is see the ball a little more clearly," said Farrell. "He's not lunging as violently to his front side and he's staying behind some swings. He's been able to carry it now for quite a while."

(9/10/14) The Red Sox were pounded at Fenway Park on Wednesday, but shortstop Xander Bogaerts can't be blamed. He was their hitting star.
Bogaerts continued a strong surge with two hits, including a solo homer in the third inning that ended the shutout for Baltimore starter Wei-Yin Chen.
He is 17 of 43 in his last 10 games with three home runs and nine RBI.

(8/30/14) As expected, Red Sox infielder Xander Bogaerts is back in the team's lineup Saturday, after recovering from a concussion.
Bogaerts has been out a week while recovering, and he spent that time on the 7-day disabled list. He is hitting eighth in Saturday's game against the Rays, and carries a .223/.293/.333 line for the season into the action.
|Xander Bogaerts ready to return Saturday |

(8/27/14) Red Sox infielder Xander Bogaerts has passed Major League Baseball's concussion protocal, and should be back Saturday, according to the Providence Journal.
Bogaerts can return from the 7-day disabled list Saturday, and it's looking like that will happen. He's hitting .223/.293/.333 over 435 at-bats.
|Tricky, tricky. Yes, Xander Bogaerts played shortstop coming up through the minors and will play shortstop again with Stephen Drew departing via free agency. But because he played mostly third base during his late-season trial in 2013, filling in for a perpetually underwhelming Will Middlebrooks, that's where he's eligible to begin 2014. Frankly, his bat would profile anywhere. He's the sort of prospect who the scouts have known would hit from the beginning. Though he hasn't exactly re-written the record books in the minors, he's done exactly what he was supposed to do at every stop. And it continued at the final one, his polish and poise earning him an everyday job in the middle of the Red Sox's playoff run. Again, his numbers could have been better, but all the scouting reports say it's only a matter of time before he becomes another Troy Tulowitzki type, hitting for a high average with better power than anyone has a right to expect at shortstop. Bogaerts will have that annoying period at the beginning of the season when you have to stick him at third base, but in the end, the dual eligibility should only improve his value. Entering 2014 as the favorite for AL Rookie of the Year, he likely won't survive the middle rounds on Draft Day.
