The Red Sox announced that shortstop Xander Bogaerts has been activated from the 10-day disabled list. IF/OF Brock Holt was placed on the 10-day disabled list with a strained left hamstring.

Bogaerts, 25, injured his left ankle when he slid into the Rays’ dugout earlier this month attempting to chase down a baseball. It was unfortunate timing as Bogaerts was off to a hot start, batting .368/.400/.711 with a pair of home runs and nine RBI in his first nine games.

Holt, 29, has been terrific in the early going. Along with playing four different positions already, he’s hit .340/.400/.520 with a home run and seven RBI in 55 PA. Holt appeared to sustain his hamstring injury running the bases on a double he hit against the Blue Jays on Thursday.

NEW YORK – Major League Baseball has sold its remaining share of a streaming service technology company to the Walt Disney Co. for $900 million.

The sale was disclosed Tuesday in Walt Disney Co.’s annual filing report through the SEC. MLB received the $900 million in exchange for the 15% stake it still had in a company called BAMTech, which originally started as MLB Advanced Media in 2000.

The technology helped MLB become a leader in sports streaming in the 2000s.

Walt Disney Co. has been buying chunks of BAMTech for the past five years and now owns 100% of the company. The National Hockey League sold its 10% share of BAMTech to Walt Disney Co. for a reported $350 million in 2021.
