Xander Bogaerts tests positive for COVID-19

Red socks star Sander Bogarts COVID-19 tested positive, the team told reporters (Including Chris Cotillo of Maslow) He was dropped after the team learned of the result in the second inning of the game this evening. Bogarts became the sixth Boston player to test positive in recent days. He will join Kiki Hernandez, Christian Arroyo, Martin Perez, Matt Barnes, Hirokasu Savamura And Josh Taylor (Lonely in close contact) Govt IL.

None of those losses will be harder to overcome than Bogarts, one of the best overall artists in the game. The 28-year-old shortstop has twenty home runs in 519 palettes this summer in the fantastic .298 / .366 / .501 line. That show won Bogarts’ third career All-Star selection. With more wins than the FanGraphs edition, Bogarts remains the thirteenth most valuable player in the game this season.

As the Bogarts departed, the socks slipped Jonathan Aras From the second basement to the shortcut. Yero Munos Entered the second row. The pair look set to be a potential midfield infield tandem for the Red Sox next week as Bogarts heals.

The Red Sox should continue to rely on their deeper preferences because they lead to harder extensions on the table. Boston has a series against the Rays, Indians, Rays and White Sox next weekend. The Red Sox entered play tonight, with A.C. in two games for the final American League playoff spot.
