Brock Holt went 1-for-2 with two walks, two steals and three runs scored versus the Mets on Sunday.
Holt was asked about in trade talks over the winter, and while it's unlikely he'll be moved, the Red Sox do have Jemile Weeks around to perhaps step into his utility role if the right offer comes along. Holt is a nice player with his ability to hit for average and man several spots on the field, but he doesn't project to get anywhere near as much playing time as he did last year. Mar 8 - 4:45 PM

Holt missed the final 21 games of 2014 with concussion issues, but he was given a clean bill of health in October and has been checking in regularly with specialist Dr. Micky Collins. "He said at the beginning of October he’d like to see me one more time to tie a ribbon on it and know everything’s fine," Holt said. "He’s been checking in and really happy with the updates I’ve been giving him." Holt will serve in a utility role for the Red Sox in 2015.
