He'll serve as the DH. Holt seems to be over his bout with vertigo and should be back with the Red Sox as soon as his 10 days are up. The 28-year-old has just two hits in 15 at-bats this year and doesn't carry any fantasy value.

Brock Holt went 3-for-4 with a solo homer in Game 1 of the ALDS against the Indians on Thursday.

So much for first-guessing Holt hitting out of the No. 2 spot. His solo shot off Bryan Shaw in the eighth brought the Red Sox within one run, but that’s as close as they would get. He also singled and doubled in the loss.

Brock Holt will start at third base and bat second in Game 1 of the ALDS against the Indians on Thursday.

Batting him second doesn't figure to be a popular move, especially given the other quality options in Boston's lineup, but John Farrell doesn't want to be too righty-heavy near the top. Holt batted .255/.322/.383 in 94 games this season. The full lineup for Boston: Dustin Pedroia 2B, Holt 3B, Mookie Betts RF, David Ortiz DH, Hanley Ramirez 1B, Xander Bogaerts SS, Jackie Bradley Jr. CF, Sandy Leon C, Andrew Benintendi LF.
