Brock Holt is hitting just .158/.226/.211 (9-for-57) over his last 14 games.

The cold spell has dropped Holt's average from .326 to .297. He's been playing over his head for a while now, so it's no surprise that Holt has finally hit a rough patch. "He’s getting game-planned against," Red Sox manager John Farrell said. "When you hit leadoff every day, there’s a clear-cut plan that’s going to be formulated against him. Overall, he’s done an exceptional job."

Brock Holt finished 5-for-6 with a home run and two runs scored against the Astros on Sunday.

Holt put an exclamation point on a breakout first half, hitting his third home run of the season to go with four singles. The 26-year-old has been a revelation for the Red Sox this season, batting .327/.371/.463 and serving as the team's primary leadoff hitter. Look for him to continue his strong season in the second half.
Jul 13 - 7:08 PM

Brock Holt doubled, tripled, and scored a run over five trips to the plate, but the Red Sox were handed a loss by the White Sox on Tuesday.

Holt was held hitless for the first time in July on Monday. He bounced back and had another productive game at the top of the lineup. His lead-off triple in the fifth inning was the catalyst to a three-run inning in which the Red Sox tied the game. The 26-year-old third baseman has done nothing but hit lately, as he owns a .313/.360/.438 slash line with two home runs, 18 RBI, and six stolen bases.
Jul 8 - 10:42 PM

Brock Holt singled twice in five at-bats as the Red Sox fell to the Cubs 2-1 on Tuesday.

It was a quiet night for the Red Sox, who scored only one run despite Holt and Dustin Pedroia -- the 1-2 hitters -- getting on base a combined five times. Holt continues to swing the bat well, as he's slashing a hot .317/.363/.439 with two home runs, 17 RBI, and five stolen bases in 224 plate appearances.
Jul 1 - 11:18 PM

Brock Holt went 1-for-3 with a double and also drew a walk in a losing effort against the Yankees on Friday.

On a night where the Red Sox offense was basically dormant, Holt still found a way to shine atop the Red Sox lineup. He has been extremely impressive thus far, hitting .323/.366/.450 with a pair of homers, 17 RBI and five stolen bases in his first 46 games. He needs to be owned and started in all mixed leagues at this point.

Brock Holt scored both of the Red Sox' runs in their 2-1 win over the Twins on Tuesday, going 2-for-4 with a stolen base.

Holt singled to lead off the game for the Red Sox, scoring on a Dustin Pedroia double. In the third inning he doubled, stole third base -- his fifth of the season -- and scored on a sacrifice fly. Holt has now scored 21 runs in 37 games, batting .338/.378/.464 as he continues to act as the Red Sox' leadoff hitter.

Brock Holt will start in center field Tuesday night against the Twins.

Holt never played the outfield in pro ball until eight days ago, but now Red Sox manager John Farrell is ready to give him a spin in center field. Daniel Nava and Jonny Gomes are playing the corner outfield spots Tuesday while Jackie Bradley, Jr. and Grady Sizemore are on the bench.
Jun 17 - 3:11 PM

Brock Holt went 2-for-5 with a run scored in a loss to the Indians on Sunday.

Holt continues to crush American League pitching, as his two-hit day raised his line to .340/.378/.465 with 19 runs scored in 35 games. His bat was never an issue in the minors -- he has a career .307 average and .782 OPS in the minor leagues -- so while he won't finish the year hitting .340, it's not entirely smoke and mirrors with the 26-year-old. As long as he stays atop the Red Sox lineup and keeps hitting, he should be starting in almost any format.
Jun 15 - 7:12 PM

Brock Holt went 2-for-5 with the only run scored in the Red Sox' win over the Orioles on Tuesday.

The sun rose in the east, set in the west, and Brock Holt got two more hits. It's becoming commonplace for the 25-year-old, who has a 10-game hitting streak in which he's 19-for-46 (.413) with seven runs scored. Forget the qualifiers -- Holt needs to be owned and started in fantasy leagues until he cools off, whenever that may be.
Jun 10 - 11:28 PM

Brock Holt continued to sizzle at the plate in Sunday’s win over the Tigers, going 4-for-5 with a triple and a run scored.

Even more impressive, while playing his first professional game in the outfield Holt made a spectacular run-saving catch early in the ballgame. He has been outstanding in his brief time with the Red Sox, slashing .339/.376/.478 with a homer, 13 RBI and three stolen bases in 115 at-bats. He’s well worth using in all mixed leagues until he cools off.
Jun 8 - 11:49 PM

Brock Holt is expected to get his first career start in left field on Sunday.

An infielder by trade, Red Sox manager John Farrell had hinted that such a move was possible in an attempt to get Holt's bat in the lineup when Mike Napoli returns from the DL on Sunday. The 25-year-old is hitting .314/.357/.448 in 27 games this season. With Shane Victorino still on the disabled list, Holt could see a few more starts in left in the coming week.

Brock Holt went 3-for-4 with a walk and an RBI double in Thursday's win over the Braves.

Holt turned in his best game since moving to the top of the Red Sox batting order last week, reaching base four times. He was crucial to his team's come-from-behind victory, scoring the first of two eighth-inning runs and getting on base in the bottom of the ninth to set up Xander Bogaerts' walk-off hit. Holt is slashing a respectable .315/.358/.411 in 82 plate appearances, but will not get nearly as much playing time once Stephen Drew is ready.

Brock Holt went 2-for-5 with two runs scored against the Braves on Monday.

Holt has now hit safely in eight straight games and has hit leadoff in the last four. The 25-year-old will obviously lose playing time once Stephen Drew is deemed ready, but he's worth rolling with for another couple of days in AL-only leagues.
