Report: NL West team emerges as 'serious suitor' for Bogaerts originally appeared on NBC Sports Boston
Re-signing Xander Bogaerts is a top priority for the Boston Red Sox, but they have no shortage of competition for the All-Star shortstop's services.
Bogaerts reportedly has garnered interest from several teams, including the Chicago Cubs and San Diego Padres. The Philadelphia Phillies were rumored as a potential destination prior to their signing of Trea Turner to an 11-year, $300 million deal on Monday.
Another club has emerged as a "serious suitor" for Bogaerts amid the winter meetings, per MLB Network's Jon Morosi: The Arizona Diamondbacks.
Diamondbacks general manager Mike Hazen was in the Red Sox front office for the first three seasons of Bogaerts' major league career.
Bogaerts, 30, is one of three star shortstops left on the free-agent market following the Turner signing. Carlos Correa and Dansby Swanson are the other top options at the position.
