Jessica Moran and Sean McAdam answer fans' questions during the Fan Feedback segment of The Baseball Show.

One fan asked why Xander Bogaerts isn't playing more, especially against lefties.

"There have been a couple of opportunities for him to play shortstop against lefties." McAdam explained, "Drew has definitely struggled against left-handers this season, that's one of the reasons it was good to bring up Bogaerts.

"As Farrell has said on a number of occasions is that Bogaerts will 'dictate how often he plays, by how well he plays."

Other questions answered during the Fan Feedback segment include...

  • Is Franklin Morales the answer in the 8th inning?
  • Are there any waiver options for the Red Sox?
  • Will Daniel Bard ever come back?
