SARASOTA, Fla. -- Xander Bogaerts, who many consider to be the top prospect in the Red Sox's farm system, was reassigned to Minor League camp following Monday's 12-9 loss to the Orioles.

Bogaerts came off the bench on Monday and went 0-for-1. Though Bogaerts was thrilled to represent the Kingdom of the Netherlands in the World Baseball Classic, the experience forced him to miss a large chunk of his first Major League Spring Training.

The shortstop took seven at-bats for the Red Sox, getting two hits.

"Very mature," Red Sox manager John Farrell recently said of Bogaerts. "You know, he's very much at ease in this environment. He hasn't seemed to be in awe in any type of way. I think the WBC experience for him was tremendous, given the settings he played in, the players and teams he went up against."

The Red Sox haven't announced where the 20-year-old Bogaerts will start his season, but Double-A Portland seems like the most logical destination.

Boston also reassigned infielders Jonathan Diaz and Drew Sutton to Minor League camp.
