Hitting for power and average, Red Sox shortstop Xander Bogaerts is enjoying a rare season at the plate

How about a trivia question to get us out of the All-Star break?

Xander Bogaerts was not an All-Star this year, despite a first half in which he hit 16 homers with 64 RBI to go with a .284 average and .889 OPS.

So, the question: How many shortstops in the last 10 years have finished a season with at least an average of .284 and OPS of .889?

The answer: three (Zack Cozart in 2017, Troy Tulowitzki four times and Hanley Ramirez in 2009).
