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."
