Xander Bogaerts was cleared by MLB to return from the seven-day concussion DL. He’s eligible to do so Saturday.

Bogaerts passed cognitive and physical tests administered by MLB and will rejoin the Sox in Tampa Thursday.

“He’s passed everything,” Red Sox manager John Farrell told McAdam. “He’s gone through some running and throwing (in Boston) and he’ll go through a full work day on Friday and then be ready for Friday.”

Bogaerts suffered the brain injury last Friday when he was hit in the head by a Felix Hernandez pitch.

He’ll try to finish the 2014 season on a good note after batting .223/.293/.333 over his first 118 games.

    Would be nice if he comes back and finishes the season with an uptick in his hitting performance.

    Baseball seems to be taking concussions seriously. I really appreciate it.
