Xander Bogaerts Sits, Gives Jonathan Herrera First Start In Eight Games (Video)


Boston Red Sox shortstop Xander Bogaerts will get the night off Wednesday, after a rough game against the Cincinnati Reds.

Bogaerts went 0-for-5 with three strikeouts in the Red Sox’s 4-3 extra-inning win Tuesday night, but manager John Farrell was careful not to call the young shortstop’s absence from the lineup the next day a benching. Instead, Farrell explained it was more of an opportunity to get Jonathan Herrera back in the field, as he hasn’t started in eight games.

Check out the video above to hear more from Farrell.
