Red Sox infielder Xander Bogaerts has made the prestigious Baseball America Minor League All-Star Team as the starting shortstop. Bogaerts was the only representative from the Boston organization to make the team—although 2B Mookie Betts and SP Henry Owens made the second team. The publication lists Bogaerts as the sixth best overall prospect in all of baseball. The Minnesota Twins organization scored five starters on the team—including OF Byron Buxton, who is considered the number one overall prospect in baseball. Congratulations, Xander!
