Bogaerts x-rays negative

Whew! The Boston Red Sox suffered a bad loss to the Tampa Bay Rays 4-1 on Thursday night, but they could have lost much more.

Xander Bogaerts was in considerable pain when he took a pitch off of his hand. It didn’t look good for one of the American League’s best hitters, but fantasy owners and Sox fans can breathe a sigh of relief.

Michael Silverman says that everyone can chill out, nothing is broken.

“About Xander Bogaerts’ injury: X-rays are negative. He’s day to day,” Silverman tweets.

Bogaerts is 12th best hitter for average in the AL at .308. The Red Sox can’t afford to lose him.
