Red Sox activated INF Brock Holt from the 10-day disabled list.

Holt, who went down with a left hamstring strain late last month, is back a day earlier than originally anticipated. The 29-year-old utility man is off to a strong start this season, batting .340/.400/.520 with one homer and seven RBI over 16 games.
May 8 - 3:51 PM

Brock Holt (hamstring) is expected to run the bases on Friday.

Holt landed on the DL with a hamstring injury but is already on the mend. He's expected to begin a rehab assignment soon and could be back with the Red Sox sometime next week. Holt has gotten off to a strong start, hitting .340/.400/.520 triple slash through 50 at-bats. He played shortstop regularly while Xander Bogaerts was out with an ankle injury but Bogaerts has since returned.
May 3 - 10:15 PM

Red Sox placed INF/OF Brock Holt on the 10-day disabled list with a strained left hamstring.

Holt suffered the injury during Thursday's game and will need at least a week and a half to recover. He's off to a nice start this season with a .920 OPS.
Apr 27 - 3:24 PM

Brock Holt left Thursday's game against the Blue Jays in the third inning after pulling up lame on the basepaths.

He doubled in his first at-bat of the game and appeared to pull a hamstring between first and second base. Holt has been on fire at the plate lately but was set to return to the bench when Xander Bogaerts comes off the disabled list on Friday. Perhaps the two players will swap places now. The Red Sox will likely give an update on Holt's status later this evening.
Apr 26 - 8:02 PM

Brock Holt continued his hot hitting by going 3-for-4 with a run and RBI in a win over the Blue Jays on Wednesday.

That makes six hits in two days for Holt, who is filling in at shortstop for the injured Xander Bogaerts. He delivered an RBI-double that plated Jackie Bradley in the fifth inning. Holt will probably return to the bench in a couple days despite his hot bat when Bogaerts comes off the disabled list. He has a .327 batting average with one homer and seven RBI in 54 plate appearances.
Apr 26 - 12:00 AM

Brock Holt went 3-for-4 with a double Tuesday against the Blue Jays to raise his average to .289.

He had a game-tying hit off Roberto Osuna with two outs in the ninth. Holt is 13-for-35 in his last nine games after opening the season 0-for-10. However, he's still due to return to the bench this weekend with Xander Bogaerts set to rejoin Boston's lineup.
Apr 24 - 10:17 PM

Brock Holt hit an RBI double in Sunday's loss to the Athletics.

The Sox weren't in danger of being no-hit again, but they were trending toward a second straight shutout before Holt's run-scoring double in the seventh inning tied the game at 1-1. It was Holt's only hit in four at-bats. He's been getting regular playing time with Xander Bogaerts sidelined, but with Bogaerts set to return this week Holt will likely move back into a reserve role. The 29-year-old is slashing .244/.326/.390 in 41 at-bats this year.
Apr 22 - 8:04 PM

Brock Holt went 2-for-5 with a two-run homer with three RBI in Tuesday's road rout of the Angels.

Holt's homer was the first of the season, one of four bombs served up by reliever Luke Bard in a nightmarish 1 2/3 innings of what was technically relief. Overall Holt is hitting just .207, but he is starting to show signs of life at the dish. He has raised his average from .063 to .207 by going 5-for-13 with a double, home and three RBI during his modest three-game hitting streak.
Apr 18 - 3:13 AM

Brock Holt doubled, singled, walked and scored twice in Boston's 8-3 win over Tampa Bay on Wednesday.

If the Red Sox are keeping Blake Swihart as a utilityman, that will really put the squeeze on Holt, who missed much of last year and was ineffective when healthy. Holt is having a nice spring, batting .345/.472/.448 in 29 at-bats. It might be best for everyone if he made his way to the NL.
Mar 21 - 4:48 PM

Brock Holt (abdominal) said he was held out of Tuesday's lineup as a precaution.

Holt was scratched from the lineup, but he was able to take batting practice without any problems. Consider him day-to-day for now.
Mar 6 - 3:22 PM

Brock Holt was scratched from Tuesday's lineup due to left abdominal tightness.

These sort of injuries can be tricky, so the Red Sox will likely take it easy with him in the next couple of days. Holt is projected to begin the year in a utility role.
Mar 6 - 1:46 PM

Brock Holt was scratched from Tuesday's Grapefruit League lineup.

No word yet on the reason for the change. The Red Sox should provide an update at some point Tuesday afternoon.
Mar 6 - 1:17 PM

Red Sox and INF/OF Brock Holt avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $2.225 million contract.

It's Holt's second year of arbitration eligibility. He hit .200/.305/.243 in 2017 over 64 games in a season shortened by concussion and vertigo issues.
Jan 12 - 2:31 PM

Jason Mastrodonato of the Boston Herald writes that Brock Holt could be a non-tender candidate this offseason.

Holt has been limited to just 52 games this season due to concussion and vertigo issues while batting just .175/.286/.208 over 140 plate appearances. He's making $1.95 million in 2017 and will be arbitration-eligible for the second time this winter. The 29-year-old isn't going to break the bank next year, but the Red Sox could decide to go in a different direction to fill a utility role.
