Xander Bogaerts (SS, BOS) - Waiver Wire Pickups

The Mechanic - RotoBaller

BALLER MOVE: Add Immediately

ANALYSIS: Bogaerts is the top infield prospect in baseball at this point and now that he's started a handful of games at 3B his call up could be imminent with the Red Sox. This is a guy you really want to own because he has the ability to put up a very nice line over the last two months of 2013. Bogaerts started the year in Double-A but was moved up to Triple-A a couple months ago and has raked: in 158 AB the 20 year old is batting .278-.380-.481 with 8 HR, 23 R and 24 RBI. That is an awesome triple slash line for a 20 year old in Triple-A, and with his great 13% / 17% BB to K rate, it's obvious he has the tools and the eye to be an impact player sooner rather than later. Don't snooze here. Cut the waste on your roster and make a spot for Bogaerts.
