Red Sox recalled INF Brock Holt from Triple-A Pawtucket.

Holt will see some playing time at third base while Will Middlebrooks (calf) is sidelined. The 25-year-old hit just .203/.275/.237 over 72 plate appearances with the Red Sox last season.

Red Sox optioned INF Brock Holt to Triple-A Pawtucket.

Holt never had much of a shot of landing an Opening Day roster spot and he did not hit overly well in Grapefruit League play. He'll continue serving as organizational infield depth this season for the Red Sox.
Mar 20 - 3:59 PM

Brock Holt homered and doubled Tuesday as a Boston split-squad edged the Orioles 6-5.

Holt served three stints with the Red Sox last year, but his chances of making the team this spring were erased by the Jonathan Herrera acquisition. He has the bat to become a solid reserve in the majors. However, he might never be a fit with the Red Sox since he's not a very good shortstop and the team can't really carry two backup infielders.

Red Sox recalled INF Brock Holt from Triple-A Pawtucket.

Holt is batting .203/.275/.237 in 23 games with the big club this season. He'll function as a bench player.

Red Sox optioned INF Brock Holt to Triple-A Pawtucket.

Holt has hit only .203/.275/.237 in 23 games for the big club this season. He'll be back up next month.

Red Sox recalled INF Brock Holt from Triple-A Pawtucket.

He and Brandon Snyder will man third base for now, but either Will Middlebrooks or Xander Bogaerts will be summoned soon. Holt will then move into a utility role.

Rob Bradford of WEEI.com reports that the Red Sox will call up Brock Holt to replace Jose Iglesias for the time being.

It may be a temporary move, as the Red Sox could make another trade to replace Iglesias before Wednesday's non-waiver deadline. There had been some speculation that Will Middlebrooks or Xander Bogaerts could be candidates for a promotion, but that decision will wait a little longer.

Red Sox optioned INF Brock Holt to Triple-A Pawtucket.

The move clears a spot for Stephen Drew on the active roster. Holt will return to a .263/.335/.297 batting line at the Triple-A level.

Red Sox recalled INF Brock Holt from Triple-A Pawtucket.

Holt is starting at third base on Saturday against the Angels. He probably won't carry any fantasy value.

The Red Sox are expected to recall Brock Holt from Triple-A Pawtucket on Saturday.

Holt missed two weeks with an oblique injury last month, but is finally healthy. He has a .263/.335/.297 batting line at the Triple-A level and should see playing time at third base with Stephen Drew on the disabled list.

Red Sox optioned INF Brock Holt to Triple-A Pawtucket.

Holt, who was acquired from the Pirates in December along with Joel Hanrahan, batted .204 (11-for-54) with three doubles and three RBI this spring. The 24-year-old will function as middle infield depth with the PawSox.

Playing against his former team, Brock Holt went 2-for-4 with a walk and two runs scored in the rout of the Pirates on Thursday.

Maybe the Red Sox dodged a bullet with Will Middlebrooks' injury last night, but we're not so sure yet. If Middlebrooks suffers more setbacks with his wrist, Holt would battle Pedro Ciriaco and Drew Sutton for time at third base. If not, then Holt is probably out of luck for a job, since he has options left and Ciriaco doesn't.

Red Sox acquired INF Brock Holt from the Pirates in the Joel Hanrahan deal.

Holt hit .292 (19-for-65) in 24 games with the Pirates this season and owns a .317/.381/.427 batting line over four seasons in the minors. The 24-year-old doesn't have much in the way of power and he's not an efficient baserunner, but he has a good approach at the plate. He could make it as a backup middle infielder.

Brock Holt will remain with the Pirates even after Neil Walker (lower back) returns to the lineup.

Holt has been the Pirates' regular second baseman with Walker out, and isn't going to be optioned. Look for him to split time with Clint Barmes at shortstop after posting a .409 on-base percentage in his first six games in the majors.
