Xander Bogaerts' defense has been a hot topic throughout the 2014 season.

The Baseball Show panel discussed the Red Sox' shortstop, and if the team should be concerned about his defense.

"They're not going to throw up the white flag and say, 'this kid can't play shortstop.'" said Dan Shaughnessy, "It looks like lateral movement, particularly to his left, seems to be a little bit of a problem."

"Obviously, things can change." said Lou Merloni, "You only go by what you've seen. Defensively, he's really struggling."
