News: Bogaerts is out of the lineup Sunday against the Rays. Impact: Bogaerts has started six straight games for the Red Sox, but will give way to Brock Holt, whose versatility allows manager John Farrell to give nearly any of his infielders a day off when needed. Despite collecting seven hits in his last six games, Bogaerts' slump has largely continued, as he owns just a .191 July batting average.(RotoWire, )

News: Bogaerts is out of the lineup Sunday vs. the Royals, Maureen Mullen of the Boston Globe reports. Impact: Brock Holt's emergence and ability to play multiple positions has made him a mainstay in the Boston lineup, so he'll spell Bogaerts at third base as manager John Farrell pieces together Sunday's starting nine. There's a chance Bogaerts could miss out on the occasional start or two per week while his batting line sits at a pedestrian .234/.310/.353 for the season, but Stephen Drew's similar struggles afford Bogaerts a decent amount of job security at either third base or shortstop most nights.(RotoWire, )

News: Bogaerts was 1-for-3 with a walk and a two-run home run as the Red Sox defeated Kansas City on Friday night. Impact: Bogaerts has gone through about a month of horrendous production so this had to be a breath of fresh air. Hitting just .236 with seven home runs and 24 RBI, the Red Sox have continually stated they will stick with him, and he has the talent to make that a wise decision once he gets everything back in sync.(RotoWire, )
