Boston Red Sox SS Xander Bogaerts is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, June 28. INF Marco Hernandez is starting at shortstop and batting ninth against Tampa Bay Rays SP Chris Archer Tuesday.
Fantasy Tip: Bogaerts is having a monster campaign with a .343/.395/.494 slash line with 59 runs, nine home runs, 50 RBI and 10 stolen bases, as he is well on his way to one of the best five-category returns from a shortstop in recent memory. Manger John Farrell recently said Bogaerts needed a night off, so here it is. This is Hernandez's fourth start in June, which makes him more of a potential flier in daily contests because he isn't receiving enough playing time to move the needle in seasonal leagues.

Boston Red Sox SS Xander Bogaerts pounded the pitching of the Minnesota Twins for the second straight day, finishing 4-for-5 with a two-run homer, three RBI and four runs scored in a 15-4 rout on Saturday, June 11. Bogaerts also went 4-for-5 with a home run and four RBI in Boston's series-opening win against the Twins on Friday, June 10.
Fantasy Tip: Bogaerts is making this thing look way too easy; he leads the American League in batting average (.358), paces the majors in hits (92) and trails only teammate Mookie Betts in runs (51). Although he has been held hitless three times since wrapping up his 26-game hitting streak on June 2, he has totaled 13 hits in the other four contests. Bogaerts is the top shortstop in fantasy right now and needs to be locked into lineups, barring injuries or rest days.
