If it weren’t for someone named Mike Trout, Xander Bogaerts might be generating a little more buzz as a candidate for American League MVP.
The Boston Red Sox shortstop is enjoying one of the best years of his young career, batting .304 with 25 home runs and 88 RBIs.
Bogaerts has stood out among a crowded group of star shortstops in the AL. So too has Francisco Lindor, whose Cleveland Indians are hosting the Sox for a three-game set.
See how the two shortstops stack up in the “Red Sox First Pitch,” video above, presented by Men’s Wearhouse.
