John Farrell Hoping Off Day Can Get Xander Bogaerts Back On Track (Video)

A coach doesn’t always want to sit one of their best players, but sometimes there isn’t much of a choice.

Such was the case for Boston Red Sox manager John Farrell concerning third baseman Xander Bogaerts. Bogaerts is 0-for-12 in his last three games, so Farrell gave him a day off Saturday for Boston’s game against the Oakland A’s hoping that some rest might do him some good.

There’s also a case to make for giving utility man Brock Holt a day off in the near future. Although he’s been red-hot, he’s been playing several games in a row and spending extra time learning new positions.
