Brock Holt made his season debut at shortstop after replacing an injured Xander Bogaerts in Wednesday's game.

If this gives Holt shortstop eligibility in your league, he just got a whole lot more valuable. Unfortunately, it'll probably be quite a while before he gets five-game eligibility at shortstop, especially with Bogaerts expected back in a day or two.

Brock Holt is starting in left field and batting seventh on Wednesday against the Rays.

It's his first time in the starting lineup in three days, mostly because the opposition was throwing left-handed starters. Holt has hit .267/.405/.533 over his first 30 at-bats this season for Boston.

Brock Holt is not in the starting lineup Tuesday against the Rays.

This is his third straight day out of the lineup, but it's not completely unexpected Tuesday with southpaw Drew Smyly on the hill. Chris Young will start in left field and bat seventh.

Brock Holt (foot) is back in the Red Sox starting lineup Monday afternoon against the Orioles.

Holt was held out of action on Sunday after fouling a ball off his foot on Saturday. X-rays came back negative and he is batting seventh Monday versus Orioles right-hander Yovani Gallardo. Rusney Castillo is back on the bench. It's actually the same starting lineup the Red Sox used on Opening Day in Cleveland.

Red Sox manager John Farrell said Sunday that Brock Holt will be available for the team's home opener against the Orioles on Monday.

Holt sat out Sunday's contest and was unavailable to pinch hit after fouling a ball off his foot during Saturday's game. X-rays came back negative though and it sounds as though the Red Sox super utility player will be on the field on Monday.
Apr 10 - 4:10 PM

Brock Holt slugged his first grand slam and knocked in a career-high five runs on Friday’s win over the Blue Jays.

After hitting an RBI double in the second inning, Holt connected for a grand slam off Jesse Chavez in the sixth. The blast brought the Red Sox within one run and they took the lead one inning later. Holt already has two home runs through three games this season after hitting only two in 129 games last season. We’re not expecting this sort of thump on a regular basis, but Holt’s multi-position eligibility should come in handy for fantasy owners as Boston's primary left fielder.

Brock Holt will start in left field for Tuesday's season opener against the Indians.

It's Take Two for the Indians and Red Sox, as Monday's scheduled opener was pushed back a day due to inclement weather. Rusney Castillo failed to impress this spring, so Holt is expected to be the primary left fielder against right-handed starters. The full Boston lineup against Indians ace Corey Kluber: Mookie Betts RF, Dustin Pedroia 2B, Xander Bogaerts SS, David Ortiz DH, Hanley Ramirez 1B, Travis Shaw 3B, Holt LF, Blake Swihart C, Jackie Bradley CF. David Price will make his debut for the Red Sox.
Apr 5 - 9:44 AM

Brock Holt will begin the season as the Red Sox primary left fielder against right-handers.

The Red Sox were hoping that Rusney Castillo would force their hand, but he's batting just .213/.275/.234 this spring while Holt has swung the bat well and has proven to be a valuable contributor over the past couple of seasons. Now Castillo is an expensive bench player. With Holt's multi-position eligibility, he could be a useful player to have around in mixed fantasy leagues.
Mar 29 - 10:01 AM

Tim Britton of the Providence Journal writes that it "wouldn't stun me" if Brock Holt starts over Rusney Castillo in left field for the Red Sox on Opening Day.

The Red Sox would certainly love to see Castillo start to pay off on that $72.5 million investment, but he just hasn't done anything to inspire any confidence in the majors (.262/.302/.379) or this spring (.225/.295/.250) this spring. Holt, meanwhile, has been a valuable utility player for Boston, hitting .280/.340/.380 over the last two seasons. The club could mix and match with Castillo and Holt in left field, with Travis Shaw also possibly getting some run at the position.
Mar 25 - 3:44 PM

Red Sox manager John Farrell said the plan is for Brock Holt to get 350-400 at-bats in a utility role this season.

"He’s going to get a high number of at-bats from a high number of positions," Farrell said. Holt was a surprise All-Star last year, finishing with a .280/.349/.379 line in 454 at-bats. The 27-year-old played at least eight games at six different positions in 2015 and should once again be a versatile member of the Sox.

Brock Holt left Saturday's game against the Indians after taking a pitch off his left knee.

Allen Craig came on to pinch-run for him. The Red Sox are calling it a bruise. Either way, Holt is probably done for the year. Boston's only All-Star this year hit .280 with two homers, 45 RBI and eight stolen bases. He's started at least one game at every position except pitcher and catcher.

Brock Holt went 2-for-3 with two RBI, a walk, and a run scored Friday against the Orioles.

Holt, who made the start in left field, had an RBI double in the sixth inning before driving in a run with an infield single in the eighth. The 27-year-old has struggled during the second half, but his multi-position eligibility could come in handy in deeper mixed fantasy leagues over the final week of the season.

Brock Holt (back) went 2-for-5 with two runs scored and two RBI on Wednesday against the Orioles.

It was the first start in five days for Holt, who's been battling back spasms. The 27-year-old utilityman is slashing .280/.349/.378 with 40 RBI and 48 runs scored in 118 games this season for the Red Sox.

Brock Holt (back) had a pinch-hit single Monday against the Orioles.

It was Holt's first appearance since leaving Friday's game with back spasms. It's a sign that he could be ready to return to the starting lineup soon.
