X-rays on Xander Bogaerts negative after HBP

Xander Bogaerts HBP

The Boston Red Sox got some good news about the status of Xander Bogaerts following a scare on Tuesday night.

Bogaerts was hit in the hand during the ninth inning of Boston’s 3-1 loss to the Philadelphia Phillies.

Bogaerts was hit in the same spot as last July, which caused additional worry among fans; the shortstop struggled the rest of July and through August last year after being hit.

Some moderately good news came after the game when X-rays on Bogaerts were negative.

Based on how last year’s HBP slowed him down, Bogaerts isn’t completely clear. But just having a contusion versus a fracture is good news.
