Red Sox flush with talent at third base

NEW YORK — When one watches Xander Bogaerts go 2 for 3 for the World team in the Futures Game and Garin Cecchini go 1 for 2 with an RBI for the US team and hit the ball hard twice, one wonders what the Red Sox are going to do with all of these third-base types.

Bogaerts started at shortstop and then moved to DH late in the game for the World team; Cecchini was a fifth-inning replacement at third and made his mark with two very good at-bats in the US team’s 4-2 win Sunday at Citi Field. The strong play of the Sox’ positional players overshadowed the poor outing by righty Anthony Ranaudo, who allowed two runs for Team USA in the fourth inning.
