Xander Bogaerts: DL decision looming

BOSTON MA- APRIL 07 Xander Bogaerts #2 of the Boston Red Sox celebrates with Mookie Betts #50 Andrew Benintendi #16 and J.D. Martinez #28 after his grand slam home run against the Tampa Bay Rays in the second inning at Fenway Park

The Red Sox have placed shortstop Xander Bogaerts on the 10-day disabled list, after he suffered a small crack in his left ankle in Sunday's 8-7 win over Tampa Bay, the team announced.

Holt is a natural second baseman who has handled shortstop duties in the past.

Bogaerts was sent for tests on his injured left ankle Monday, Evan Drellich of NBC Sports Boston reports. However, his absence will certainly be felt regardless of how short his stint on the DL is. He has rewarded DFS players with 15.7 FanDuel points per game.

The Red Sox are idle on Monday as they get ready for a much-anticipated three-game set against the New York Yankees at Fenway Park. If Bogaerts does miss 14 days, he'd be in line to return for the April 24-26 trip to Toronto.

To fill Bogaerts' spot on the major league roster, the Red Sox will recall infielder Tzu-Wei Lin from Triple-A Pawtucket tomorrow, Tuesday, April 10.

Bogaerts was batting.368 with two home runs and nine RBIs as the Red Sox raced out to their best start in franchise history.
