Description: Rookie Xander Bogaerts will make another start at third base for the Red Sox in Game 1 of the World Series.
Insight: Bogaerts (3-for-6, seven runs in six playoff games) appears to be locked in as Boston's third baseman for the rest of the postseason. Will Middlebrooks will probably be limited to pinch-hitting duty.

Insight: The rookie went 1-for-3 with a double and a walk Thursday in Game 5. He's been filling in for Will Middlebrooks, who has struggled offensively during the playoffs (.174 AVG in 23 at bats). Since shortstop is Bogaerts' natural position, Middlebrooks will probably come in as a defensive replacement if the Red Sox have a lead in the ninth inning.

Description: Boston's Xander Bogaerts will make his first start of the postseason Thursday against Detroit.
Insight: Bogaerts is in for third baseman Will Middlebrooks, who is just 1-for-10 in the series. The 21-year-old Bogaerts went 1-for-2 in last night's loss and has hit .261 since joining the Red Sox in mid-August.

Description: Red Sox shortstop Xander Bogaerts hit his first career home run Saturday against the Yankees.
Insight: Bogaerts went 2-for-4 with a double, a homer and three RBI in the game and is 8-for-24 (.333) in part-time duty since making his major league debut. The top prospect has limited fantasy value while he's serving as a backup infielder.

Description: Boston infielder Xander Bogaerts is not in the starting lineup Monday against the Giants.
Insight: Bogaerts was called up from Triple-A Pawtucket earlier in the day. Manager John Farrell said it's unlikely that Bogaerts will be an everyday player for the Sox. Instead, he'll play shortstop against lefties while getting the occasional start at third base. With Stephen Drew about to become a free agent, Bogaerts should be Boston's starting shortstop in 2014.
 
8/19/2013 7:15:00 PM
Description: The Red Sox have promoted infielder Xander Bogaerts to the major leagues.
Insight: Brock Holt will head down to Triple-A. Bogaerts, rated by ESPN's Jim Callis as the No. 1 prospect in baseball, hit .284 with nine homers during his 60-game stint with Triple-A Pawtucket.
 
7/29/2013 4:37:00 PM
Description: Boston's top prospect Xander Bogaerts will make his fifth start of the season at third base Monday with Triple-A Pawtucket, according to Pawtucket Red Sox broadcaster Jeff Levering.
Insight: It is unclear if the Red Sox have any plans to promote the 20-year-old shortstop to play third base down the stretch, but it appears they are keeping their options open. Bogaerts, who is ranked No. 6 on the latest list of MLB.com's top-100 prospects, is hitting .296 with 14 home runs, an .887 OPS and an 80/58 K/BB in 96 games in the minors this season.
