Red Sox's Bogaerts a more aggressive hitter in RISP situations


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(6/24/2015) Red Sox shortstop Xander Bogaerts has vastly improved at the plate with runners in scoring position. After batting .153 with 29 RBI in those situations last season, he is batting .357 with 27 RBI with runners in scoring position this season.

Hitting coach Chili Davis credits Bogaerts' turnaround to a more aggressive approach, according to The Providence Journal.

"When he sees his pitch, he knows what to do with it," Davis said. "Usually with runners in scoring position, most pitchers are either going to want to get ahead to use their secondary pitches, or they're going to try to tease you with their secondary pitches to see if you'll chase.

"If they try to tease you with secondary pitches and you don’t offer, all they're doing is digging a hole, and they're going to have to throw you a pitch to hit. But if you go up there ready to swing at your pitch and they're trying to get ahead and you get that pitch, go ahead and jump on it. Be aggressive but be smart aggressive."

by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

SS Xander Bogaerts moves up to third in Red Sox lineup


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(6/12/2015) Shortstop Xander Bogaerts will hit in the No. 3 position in the starting lineup for the first time this season Friday as the Red Sox try to get back on track against the Blue Jays. 

Along with the injury to Hanley Ramirez, a big reason why Bogaerts was slotted in the third hole has been a history of success against Toronto starter Drew Hutchison. Bogaerts is hitting .500 (6-for-12) against Hutchison, one of several Red Sox players with gaudy numbers against the Jays hurler. 

For the season, Bogaerts is hitting a respectable .295, and he is even better at Fenway, hitting .333 in his home park. 


Red Sox SS Xander Bogaerts notchers two RBI in comeback win


by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(6/7/2015) Red Sox Xander Bogaerts helped his team come back from a 4-0 deficit in the eighth inning of their 7-4 win over the Athletics on Sunday.

Bogaerts doubled to center field, bringing Hanley Ramirez and Mookie Betts around to score. Bogaerts finished the game going 1 for 4 with two RBI.

"He did a good job of staying inside that pitch running into him and kept it fair and hit it off the wall," Tyler Clippard said, per MLB.com. "I wasn't mad about the execution. He took some poor swings on my fastball throughout that whole at-bat, and I felt like I did a good job reading his swing up until that last pitch. I probably should've thrown him a fastball."

He's hitting .296 with two home runs and 21 RBI in 189 at-bats this season.

Red Sox SS Xander Bogaerts reaches base three times Thursday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5/22/2015) Red Sox shortstop Xander Bogaerts had the goods and bads in Thursday's loss to the Rangers. Bogaerts reached base safely in all three plate appearances, going 2 for 2 with a walk. He has a hit four straight games and has reached base in eight of his last nine. Since May 10, he has seen his season average rise more than 20 points from .250 to its current .271 clip.

But, Bogaerts did commit his third error of the season, and also ran into some back luck on the basepaths, literally. 

With teammate Daniel Nava at the plate in the bottom of the fifth, Bogaerts was on first base with one out. He took off trying to steal second, but Nava swung and tapped the ball to the right side, which clipped Bogaerts on the foot as he was running. Bogaerts was ruled out, and a strikeout by the next batter ended the rally for Boston.

"Probably the play there when I tried to steal and the ball hit me, that was probably the game-changer," said Bogaerts, per MLB.com. "I never knew, I was never aware the ball touched me until I came back down and I saw the video, it might've just scratched the bottom of my heel or something like that, but I never know it hit me at all."


Red Sox dropping down more bunts in 2015


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(5/16/2015) Red Sox manager John Farrell has been asking his players, speficially Xander Bogaerts, Blake Swihart and Sandy Leon, to drop down more bunts this season, according to MLB.com.

"We've placed a greater emphasis on it in spring training," said Farrell. "Maybe guys that haven't done it in their Minor League career, guys that dominate the Minor Leagues [but are] going to come up and hit in the bottom third of our order ... you want to allow them to grow as Major League players, but to contribute to a rally by putting down a sacrifice bunt, there's a lot of benefit that goes to the individual."

Boston has already dropped down 10 sacrifices this season in 36 games after only getting 20 down last season. 

"You go back to the game situation," said Farrell. "Did we anticipate an offense that would be more consistent than what we've shown? Yes, and we'll realize that in time. But where we are and what the game is suggesting and presenting to us, we've got to be equipped to handle that, and we've asked guys in those spots to lay a bunt down."
