Xander Bogaerts Injury: Red Sox Shortstop Placed On 10-Day Disabled List

Xander Bogaerts Injury: Red Sox Shortstop Placed On 10-Day Disabled List”

Bogaerts suffered the ankle injury during Sunday's game against the Rays after sliding into the protective netting near the Tampa Bay dugout.

Boston says an MRI confirmed the injury on Monday, a day after he was hurt. Fortunately, the Red Sox have a former All-Star on their bench to replace Bogaerts in Brock Holt. Bogaerts, who was placed on the DL Monday, is expected to miss approximately 10-14 days.

On a chilly afternoon in which the Red Sox lost their shortstop Xander Bogaerts (ankle) to injury, played poor defense, finally got a poor start (Eduardo Rodriguez) from a starter and trailed by five runs in the eighth inning, the Red Sox still wound up on top of the Rays, 8-7. He tried to chase the ball to prevent it from going into the dugout. It's a non-displaced fracture and won't require surgery.

Since technically Bogaerts broke his ankle, his potentially missing just two weeks has to be excellent news for the team.

Bogaerts was batting.368 with two home runs and nine RBIs as the Red Sox raced out to their best start in franchise history.

Tzu-Wei Lin will be called up from Triple-A Pawtucket on Tuesday to take his place. The injury also comes at a bad time with the Red Sox playing their next seven games against division opponents, including three games with the Yankees this week.
