From the Jennings article in The Athletic mentioned above, here's a "rumor"-- basically his guess at what happens with Bogaerts, based on an "understanding" of what the organization wants:
Right now, Xander Bogaerts is a free agent, but I still think the most likely scenario is the Red Sox finding a way to re-sign him. My understanding is that all of their public comments are not merely pandering. The organization loves Bogaerts and legitimately wants him back. It seems fair to argue it should have been done by now, but here we are. For the Red Sox, the Bogaerts re-signing press conference comes a week before or a week after the Rafael Devers extension press conference. But, for now, one thing at a time.
