Brock Holt (concussion, vertigo) is hoping "it won’t be too long before I get back in there."

Holt has suffered two concussions in the last year and is still battling vertigo-like symptoms. He was pulled off his minor league rehab assignment last month, prompting him to visit Dr. Michael Collins, a leading concussion specialist based in Pittsburgh. Holt has been taking batting practice and fielding ground balls but he won't be ready for game action until his eyes stabilize. "I’m just letting this play out," he said. "I feel more positive than I’ve felt in a long time, but I’m trying to hold back thinking about when I’ll take that final step to say, ‘Ok, I’m ready to do this.’ ’’ His presence has been sorely missed at third base, where the Red Sox are currently starting Josh Rutledge.

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.
