The Red Sox have placed shortstop Xander Bogaerts on the seven-day concussion disabled list, ESPN Boston’s Joe McDonald reports. Bogaerts was hit in the head by an 89 MPH Felix Hernandez change-up on Friday night against the Mariners and did not play in Saturday or Sunday’s games.
Bogaerts told the media he felt fine, but it’s always better to be safe than sorry when it comes to head injuries. The 21-year-old rookie has a .223/.293/.333 slash line with eight home runs and 30 RBI on the season.
The Red Sox have recalled infielder Carlos Rivero from Triple-A Pawtucket to serve as depth while Bogaerts is out.
