Bogaerts is having a slightly different platform year than usual, as he hit 20 homers for the first time in a full season since 2017, but was the best-ever defensive shortstop. Bogaerts, who turned 30 on October 1, had the best defensive season of his season, according to advanced metrics. It was just his sophomore year, and his average number of outs was plus-five.

His defensive improvement offsets his hard contact loss, but the trend for all players in their 30s is lower defensive value and reduced range.

When said to be farsighted. It’s not for me to say, but I think the game teaches you not to speculate too much about those things.
