Bits: Sorting out the Red Sox infield

For a 20-year-old who might not make an impact for the Boston Red Sox or fantasy owners until next season, Xander Bogaerts seems to be an awfully popular guy in AL-only and other deep formats. Not only do fantasy owners desperately want to know when this top left-side infield prospect will debut, but at which position he'll be playing. The organization claims Bogaerts will split time between shortstop and third base for Triple-A Pawtucket the next few weeks; he played the hot corner Tuesday, contributing three singles at the plate as well.

Oh, did I mention he's just 20? Colleague Jim Callis is quite fond of him, and I think he's a potential top-10 something in 2014, similar to Baltimore Orioles third baseman Manny Machado.
