BRISTOL – E shorstop Arubiano di Boston Red Sox Xander Bogaerts a drenta e Top 100 di ESPN. Despues di un tremendo temporada unda cu e hoben Arubiano aki a keda na di 2 lugar tras di Jose Altuve cu un averahe di .320 cu ta hopi impressionante. Analistanan deportivo ta duda cu Bogaerts por mantene e averahe halto asina, pero nan ta duna Xander Bogaerts e beneficio di duda mirando e avanse di su temporada di 2014 compara cu esun di 2015.

Xander Bogaerts ta bon prepara pa e temporada nobo y tur cos ta mustra cu e lo ta un di e mihor shortstop di Grandes Ligas. E poder ta na caminda y tur cos ta mustra cu despues di anja pasa cu e la bati solamente 7 homerun, e anja aki Bogaerts lo kier demonstra su poder.

Pos.: SS | Team: Boston Red Sox

2015 rank: NR | 2016 fantasy rank: 60

2015 stats: .320 BA, .776 OPS, 7 HRs, 81 RBIs

ESPN says: At the risk of minimizing his breakthrough last season, skeptics point to Bogaerts’ fortuitous .372 batting average on balls in play and wonder if he can duplicate a .320 overall average that was second best in the American League. Regardless, the 23-year-old Red Sox shortstop figures to develop more power as he ages and could see a spike from seven homers in 2015. A star-in-waiting, Bogaerts might be just scratching the surface of his ability. — Lauber

By the numbers: Bogaerts had 196 hits last season at the age of 22. Only five shortstops have had more hits in a season at age 22 or younger: Alex Rodriguez, Cal Ripken, Harvey Kuenn, Starlin Castro and Garry Templeton. — ESPN Stats & Information
