Other elite shortstop peers have passed Bogaerts by, but he rebounded from a 2017 mired by a wrist injury to hit a quiet .288/.360/.522 with 23 homers and 103 RBI. He set career-highs in walks, hard-hit rate, barrels, and launch angle in his age-25 season, so drafters should believe in his power surge. This is the player everyone has wanted for years, but the five-category contributor-swinging in the heart of a loaded lineup-will slip to the fourth or fifth round due to a lack of elite power and speed.

Xander Bogaerts, Red Sox didn’t get far on extension talks

Evan Drellich of NBC Sports Boston reports Xander Bogaerts and the Red Sox discussed an extension this off-season but the two sides never got close to a deal.

Fantasy Impact

Bogaerts, who is a free agent after 2019, is represent by Scott Boras so it’s not surprising a deal didn’t get done. Boras likely wants to see what Manny Machado gets in free agency and then use Bogaerts as a comp. Bogaerts had a really good season in 2018, hitting .288 with 23 homers and a .360 OBP. It looks as if he’ll enter free agency following the season.
