After last night’s exhausting and, for Boston, dispiriting game against the Yankees, the Red Sox decided to make a lot of moves. One stands out above the others: they plan to call up top prospect Xander Bogaerts some time today, reports Alex Speier of WEEI.
Bogaerts, only 20 years-old, has hit .299/.389/.481 with 15 homers, seven steals and 67 RBI in 115 games this season between Double-A Portland and Triple-A Pawtucket. He is easily the organization’s top prospect and will likely see time at short and third.
In addition to the Bogaerts move, the Sox have activated catcher David Ross from the 60-day DL and sent down Ryan Lavarnway and Rubby De La Rosa to Pawtucket. Those moves, methinks, wont’ bring nearly as much excitement as this one, however.
