Red Sox shortstop Xander Bogaerts exited Sunday’s game against the Rays with an apparent leg injury. Evan Drellich of NBC Sports Boston has an update: Bogaerts sustained a “small crack” in the talus bone and he has been placed on the 10-day disabled list. He’s expected to miss 10-14 days.

Bogaerts was on fire to start the season, batting .368/.400/.711 with seven doubles, two homers, nine RBI, and seven runs scored in 40 plate appearances.

Brock Holt will likely handle shortstop while Bogaerts recovers.
