the bogarts are hurting
xander bogarts Clearly still troubled by his injured left wrist, which he hurt during last weekend’s series with the Yankees.
The Bogarts were dropped from the lineup on Monday and Tuesday, although manager alex kora indicated that he would play on Wednesday.
“This kid didn’t have an All-Star break and we’ve been grinding for a while,” Cora said. “Another day doesn’t affect anyone. So he will be in the lineup (Wednesday). I know some people think there’s something going on in the wrist. Yes, there it is, we know that. It’s not a big deal to have another day.”
Bogarts was battling a wrist injury in the second half of the 2017 season. Not much thought was given to the injury, but Bogarts was half the player he usually is and later admitted that playing through it was a mistake.
He has otherwise been a model of good health throughout his career, averaging 149 games per season.
“Durable, that’s the word,” Cora said. “He’s very consistent. He shows up every day. For him to get two days off, you have to convince him. He understands how we work now and apparently we’re looking at August and September .
“I’ve always been saying that he’s the most consistent person in this organization from top to bottom. He’s on the field, off the field, off-season, during the season, talking to young players, connecting with legends, coaches What Connect does is. He is the most consistent person we have.”
Looking for time to play Duran
With some left-handers likely to face the Red Sox this week, it could be difficult Jaren Duran to get into the lineup.
He was alex verdugo It is scheduled to play center field on Tuesday before the game is postponed. kike hernandezhu Was at shortstop with Bogarts out.
But Cora said Duran would find some time to play, even with the Left.
“It’s the big leagues; it’s not that easy,” Cora said. “It’s a small sample size. I talked to him (Monday) a little bit, like, ‘We’ve got to slow down the game. If you don’t get a hit then it doesn’t matter. You have to keep swinging and swinging.’ We like that he controls the strike zone. We took a look at his swing decisions and it wasn’t that bad over the weekend. I think that’s the most important thing. Make sure you stay within yourself. Be patient , control the zone and leave.”
With Hernandez at shortstop and Verdugo at center field, will the Sox consider using Duran at second base, in which case he was drafted and played in his early days in the minor leagues?
“In fact, I asked him the other day, ‘Can you still play another? Cora said. “He said, ‘Of course I can.’ He hasn’t had a ground ball there for a while. There’s a leftist and a leftist, as you know. We’ll see the division. We’ll see the use of the pitch. He does left-handed pitching. He’s done that throughout his career. I don’t want to get ahead of myself, but I think against Thursday (hyun jino) ryu there’s a good chance we’ll play him, not raffy (Devers) in the lineup. So we can do this. We’ll see how it goes in Tampa.
“He’s still bringing energy. We’re still working with him. If there’s someone right later in the game who we think is a good matchup, we’ll use that.”
the rays have already added Nelson Cruz And on Tuesday, another American League contender added a significant portion.
Astros get Mariners close Kendall Graveman, one of the leading relievers in baseball, who has a 0.82 ERA and 10 saves in 30 games with Seattle this year.
The Red Sox haven’t taken any action yet.
“I enjoy it,” Cora said. “I think it’s part of baseball. As a manager, there’s a balancing act, right? I believe that at this stage, every team, regardless of your record, you have room to improve.” But at the same time you have to respect the people who are in that clubhouse.
“I bet in any clubhouse where the teams are in contention, there’s a bunch of people, they’re dying to add something, and there’s a handful of people, they’re like, hopefully nothing. It happens. That’s the nature of it.”
