Xander Bogaerts could return to the Boston Red Sox soon.
The Red Sox have made it abundantly clear that retaining Bogaerts is their top priority this offseason, even though there are other big hitters available.
With Trea Turner off the board, Bogaerts, Carlos Correa and Dansby Swanson remain on the free agent market.
But according to MLB pundit Hector Gomez, that could change soon.
Gomez notes that talks have intensified between Bogaerts and the Red Sox, and that the Red Sox have “increased their offer” for the star shortstop.
The Red Sox already signed veteran closer Kenley Jansen today.
the #Red Sox increased his offer for Xander Bogaerts. The talks have intensified. It seems that they could reach an agreement.

Sox could be close to signing Bogaerts
If the Red Sox can secure the bag with Bogaerts, fans across the city of Boston will rejoice.
Red Sox fans hope and pray that Bogaerts stays with the team.
The 30-year-old batted .307 during the regular season and smashed 15 home runs while scoring 73 runs.
On top of that, the veteran slugger posted an .833 OPS, stole eight bases, racked up 53 extra-base hits and scored 254 total bases in 2022.
It wasn’t enough to save the Red Sox from a 78-84 finish, but Bogaerts remained productive before ultimately canceling the remaining three years of his contract with the team.
The slugger made his debut in 2013 and helped lead the Red Sox to a World Series title, completing his epic turnaround from worst to first after finishing in last place the year before.
Bogaerts was also one of the key pieces in the Sox’s 2018 World Series run.
