  • Padres' Xander Bogaerts: Moving to second base

    Manager Mike Shildt announced Friday that Bogaerts will move to second base this season while Ha-Seong Kim takes over at shortstop, Dennis Lin of The Athletic reports.

    Kim is viewed as the superior defender and won a Gold Glove at the keystone last year, and the Padres new skipper didn't waste any time moving to shore up his defense at a premier position. An eventual move off shortstop always seemed inevitable after Bogaerts joined the team on an 11-year, $280-million contract in December of 2022, but it's a bit of a surprise the transition is happening so soon. Bogaerts' fantasy value for 2024 should rise a bit thanks to dual-position eligibility after he posted a .285/.350/.440 slash line with 19 home runs and 19 steals last season.

  • Padres' Xander Bogaerts: Position change possible?

    Padres manager Mike Shildt indicated last week that he could eventually discuss a possible position switch with Bogaerts, Kevin Acee of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

    Shildt said that Bogaerts is projected to play shortstop in 2024 "right now" but added that he will talk with the 31-year-old soon and indicated that an eventual move to the right side of the infield -- presumably second base -- would be discussed. Bogaerts actually graded out well defensively at shortstop for the second year in a row in 2023, but Ha-Seong Kim is viewed as the superior defender there and top shortstop prospect Jackson Merrill could be ready before long.

  • Padres' Xander Bogaerts: Notches 19th steal

    Bogaerts went 1-for-4 with a walk, a stolen base and a run scored in Tuesday's 4-0 win over the Giants.

    Bogaerts has gone 20-for-49 (.408) with four steals over his last 11 games. The shortstop is at 19 thefts on the year, as well as 19 home runs, putting him just shy of his first 20-20 campaign with four games left on the schedule. He's at a .283/.350/.441 slash line over 151 contests this season.

  • Padres' Xander Bogaerts: Three more hits Wednesday

    Bogaerts went 3-for-4 with a double, a run scored and a stolen base in Wednesday's 3-2 win over the Rockies.

    After struggling for much of the year, Bogaerts is putting together a massive finish to his first season with the Padres. The shortstop has reeled off six straight multi-hit performances, and through 17 games in September he's batting .471 (32-for-68) with nine doubles, a triple, four homers, five steals, eight RBI and 19 runs. Bogaerts needs just one more home run and two more stolen bases to record his first career 20-20 campaign.

    Bogaerts went 2-for-5 with a two-run home run in Tuesday's 2-0 victory over the Rockies.

Bogaerts has collected multiple hits in five consecutive contests, a span in which he's 11-for-23 (.478) with six runs scored and three RBI while striking out at a 12 percent clip.

  • Padres' Xander Bogaerts: Productive in win

    Bogaerts went 3-for-4 with a triple, a double, a walk, a stolen base and three runs scored in Monday's 11-9 win over the Rockies.

    Bogaerts didn't get a chance to go for the home run he needed for the cycle, but he showed off some impressive speed Monday. He stole home and hit his first triple of the season in the contest, which was his fifth multi-hit effort over his last six games. The shortstop is up to a .279/.348/.433 slash line with 18 home runs, 51 RBI, 75 runs scored, 17 steals and 29 doubles through 144 contests. He hit leadoff Monday with Ha-Seong Kim (abdomen) out of the lineup -- Bogaerts has primarily hit fifth over the last month.
