Red Sox fans will be pleased to see shortstop Xander Bogaerts check in at No. 5.
Here’s part of what Law writes about Bogaerts:
A year ago, Bogaerts looked like a high-ceiling bat who'd have to find a new position, most likely third base, but a year of full-season ball at shortstop with continued work on maintaining his conditioning has his odds of remaining in the middle of the field up over even money. And a shortstop who can hit like this is a pretty special commodity.
