A number of Major League executives expect the Boston Red Sox to trade Xander Bogaerts prior to this year's trade deadline, according to a poll by Mark Feinsand.

Bogaerts can opt out of his contract -- a six-year, $120 million deal that runs through 2025 and includes a 2026 vesting option -- this offseason. 

The Red Sox discussed a long-term deal with the shortstop before Opening Day, but the two sides were reportedly more than $100 million apart in negotiations.
