MLB: Xander Bogaerts goes on Red Sox DL


Shortstop Xander Bogaerts was put on the 10-day disabled list Monday by the Boston Red Sox because of a cracked bone in his left ankle.

The team said an MRI exam confirmed the injury suffered Sunday while sliding into the Tampa Bay Rays dugout. He was covering third base and chasing his mishandling of a ball.

The Red Sox said the injury is a nondisplaced fracture. Bogaerts is expected to sit out 10 to 14 days.
