The perennial All-Star joins at team that reached the NLCS and already includes Manny Machado, Juan Soto and Fernando Tatis Jr. – once he has completed his PED suspension.

The 30-year-old Bogaerts hit .307 last season with 15 home runs, 73 RBIs and a .833 OPS for Boston where he won two World Series.
