The Boston Red Sox have been discussing the possibility of calling up Xander Bogaerts since spring training. However, since then the,  20-year-old shortshop's bat has become a WMD against Double and Triple A pitches. If the rumors are true, Bogaerts who is swinging the bat with authority will replace Brock Holt on the 25-man roster and would be the youngest position player to make his Red Sox debut since Dwight Evans in 1972.

Via SI:

Bogaerts has hit .297 with 15 home runs, 67 RBIs and an .865 OPS in 116 games for Double A Portland and Triple A Pawtucket this season

The righthanded hitter could also provide a boost for the Red Sox batting order against lefthanded pitchers. Bogaerts was hitting .298 with a .452 OBP, .474 slugging mark, 16 walks and just seven strikeouts in 73 plate appearances against lefties..
