Player Profile: Xander Bogaerts

I have four cards of Xander Bogaerts. This one is from 2014 Topps.

Playing career: Red Sox shortstop Xander Bogaerts came up with a lot of hype but struggled in his rookie year in 2014, hitting .240 with 12 HR and 46 RBI.

Where he is now: Bogaerts cut down on his power and improved on his overall game in 2015, hitting .320 with 7 HR and 81 RBI.

My memories: He was one of several young Red Sox who pounded on the Yankees in the second half.

Google Autocomplete results: He is sixth when you type Xan, between Xanga, a social media site, and Xanax Bars, a drug. There do not appear to be any other prominent Xander Bogaertses.

Coming up next: The next profile will be Ryan Bolden.
