The Red Sox announced Monday afternoon that shortstop Xander Bogaerts has been placed on the 10-day disabled list after injuring his ankle in the seventh inning of Sunday's 8-7 win over Tampa Bay at Fenway Park.
Bogaerts slid into the Rays' dugout chasing a bad throw and suffered a small crack in the talus bone of his left ankle. He is expected to miss ten to fourteen days.
Tzu-Wei Lin has been recalled from Pawtucket to take Bogaerts' spot on the roster.
The X-Man was off to a great start with a team-leading .368 average to go with a .400 on base percentage and a 1.111 OPS.
The injury comes as the Red Sox prepare to host the Yankees for three games Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.

Yeah, I used to be that guy on WNEW-FM. No, I never worked at WPLJ (honest).
I support my family by doing two things in life I truly love - baseball (PBI) and radio (WDHA).
