CINCINNATI, OH: Per Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune, Padres star infielder Xander Bogaerts has a fractured left shoulder and hopes to return by the end of summer. David Peralta was the corresponding move for the Friars.

Bogaerts, 31, suffered a fractured left shoulder which is the unfortunate news. The fortunate news for the Padres is that he did not tear his labrum, meaning no surgery for the star infielder. Barring any setbacks in the rehab process, Bogaerts is expected to miss 8-12 weeks.

Bogaerts was on his way back to form before the unfortunate injury news. The Padres $280 million infielder is slashing .219/.265/.316 with 4 home runs on the year. Although those numbers don’t pass the eye test, Bogaerts was starting to swing a hot bat the last few days.

There is no doubt that the Padres investment in Xander Bogaerts has not been one either sides had hoped for. Bogaerts was a premier shortstop during his 10-year career in Boston and was regarded as a top player in the league. Although Bogaerts has not lived up to expectations, the 31-year old still has nine years to turn his San Diego career around.
