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.

Brock Holt (personal) is back in the Red Sox starting lineup Thursday night against the Orioles.

Holt was excused from the club for a couple of days following a death in his family. He will start at shortstop and bat second Thursday versus Orioles right-hander Chris Tillman. Xander Bogaerts has the night off.

Brock Holt will be away from the Red Sox for the next two days following a death in his family.

Holt just returned to the Red Sox starting lineup Monday after an eight-day absence due to shoulder trouble. He should be back for Thursday's series finale in Baltimore.

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

It will be the first start since September 11 for Holt, who had been dealing with a shoulder injury. He is playing third base and batting seventh versus Orioles right-hander Dylan Bundy.

Brock Holt hasn't played since Sunday due to a shoulder injury.

Holt injured himself on a dive back into first base. He's available off the bench but might not see much playing time, especially with Andrew Benintendi now back in the mix.

Brock Holt (oblique) went hitless in three at-bats Wednesday in his return to the Red Sox lineup.

It was the first game in five days for Holt, who has been battling oblique tightness. He might be looking at a bigger workload for the stretch run with starting left fielder Andrew Benintendi (knee, ankle) possibly done for the season. Chris Young will also draw starts in left, but he struggles against right-handed pitching.

Brock Holt (oblique) is not in the Red Sox lineup Saturday against the Tigers.

Holt has been battling oblique tightness for a few days now and was unable to finish Friday night's game. Despite the injury, Holt should be available off the bench on Saturday. Holt opened the year as Boston's starting left fielder but was moved to a utility role when the Red Sox called up top prospect Andrew Benintendi.
Sat, Aug 20, 2016 04:24:00 PM

Brock Holt was forced to leave Friday's game against the Tigers with left oblique soreness.

Red Sox manager John Farrell indicated that Holt only feels the injury when he throws. It wouldn't be surprising to see him rest on Saturday as a precautionary measure, though he could be available as a pinch hitter or runner off of the bench.

Brock Holt went 3-for-3 with a double as the Red Sox's third baseman on Wednesday.

Shaw hadn't started at third base all season until Aug. 7. Now he's done so on back-to-back days, in large part because Hanley Ramirez is away and Travis Shaw is playing first. Still, Holt makes more sense at third than Aaron Hill against a left-hander and there's a decent chance he'll outproduce Shaw the rest of the way. He should remain a factor at the hot corner.

Brock Holt hit a two-run home run and scored three times as the Red Sox doubled up the Diamondbacks 6-3 on Saturday.

Holt hit the two-run shot off Diamondbacks starter Archie Bradley in the sixth inning. It was his sixth homer of the year. Holt opened the year as a starter but a concussion and some woes at the plate have moved some others ahead of him on the depth chart. The 28-year-old is hitting .251/.323/.389 in 65 games overall.

Brock Holt hit a go-ahead RBI single in the 11th inning of Thursday's 3-2 win over the Mariners.

Holt's single up the middle just barely made it through the infield, but it did the job nonetheless, scoring Travis Shaw to snap a 2-2 tie. Brad Ziegler subsequently closed out the 3-2 victory, albeit with a few hiccups in the bottom of the 11th. For the season, Holt holds a .259/.330/.395 triple-slash and has socked five homers to pair with 26 RBI over 185 at-bats.

Brock Holt is not in the Red Sox lineup Saturday against the Yankees.

The Red Sox are stacking their lineup with right-handers against lefty CC Sabathia. Bryce Brentz will take over in left field and bat eighth. Holt went 1-for-3 Friday in his return from a sprained ankle. He should be back in the lineup Sunday night against Masahiro Tanaka.
