Boston Red Sox shortstop Xander Bogaerts went 3-for-4 with four runs batted in, thanks to two home runs in Wednesday's 5-1 win over Cleveland. Bogaerts did almost all the damage himself, thanks to a third inning solo shot and a three-run bomb in the seventh. Wednesday also marked his second multi-homer game in the month of August. Sitting at 27 homers, he's well on pace to surpass 30 homers on the year and his 92 RBI are only nine away from the career-high 102 he had last season. Bogaerts is well on his way to finishing as the top fantasy shortstop this season.
Boston Red Sox shortstop Xander Bogaerts ended the weekend Yankees series with a goose egg in the hit column. He was fresh off a seven game hit streak and batting .317 on the year, before going hitless and now sitting at .306. The 26-year-old has been the most consistent producer in the Boston lineup this year but couldn't pull through when they needed him most. Assuming its a short-lived slump, expect Bogaerts to return to form against the Royals, who come to Boston on Monday.
Boston Red Sox shortstop finished a perfect 4-for-4 with two home runs and three runs batted in during Thursday's loss to the Rays. The 26-year-old almost provided every run for Boston, and he now has 84 RBI through August 2. Bogaerts has established himself as one of the top hitting shortstops in the game and he doesn't seem to be slowing up. In July, he slashed .346/.393/.635 with seven homers, 24 RBI, and nine doubles. Barring injury, he will have no problems finishing this season as a top 3 shortstop in fantasy.
